OKAY! so i know it has been a long time since i have talked about printing any of my work, but i think i’m finally getting close to a point where i could do it!
i am hoping to have my mermaid comic finished and have two printed copies of it within two weeks (part of a school assignment)
what i would like to do after that is done is look into methods of printing on a larger scale and get together the means to print and sell copies of a small book with fairyfail and how to be a mermaid in it. there are two methods i’m debating for this: getting it printed as a book and paying for it that way or printing out the pages and binding the books myself. i’m no talented bookmaker, but i could probably find a way! it just depends on the scale of people who want the books and such.
i would probably approach doing this through kickstarter but before i do that i really want to research printing costs.
also, if there are enough people interested, i would like one of my stretch goals to be the inclusion of other work - a few other related comics i’ve done, maybe the fairytale-related short stories i’ve written, and some illustration work.
anyway, i guess what i’m asking for right now is does anyone have any feedback/thoughts?? whether it’s places to look for book printing, places with good instructions for bookbinding, tips on running a kickstarter - or even just whether or not you’d be interested in this project!
thank you all! <3
