With a little help from our friends
One week ago, the 300 copies of League of Ladies zines, which will ship out with our Kickstarter orders, existed only as rough drafts in a Google Doc.
With the help of Big Creature Media and gaïa orain, we transformed my zine concepts into 10-page zine layouts. Each character in the League of Ladies lineup has her own zine. Instead of biographies, the zines are mini superhero manuals. I won’t say anymore, lest I ruin the surprise for Kickstarter backers!
I hosted the first of Panty Packing Parties this week, to help with zine assembly. Three intrepid Panty Packers showed up to cut, fold, and sort 300 pages of zine content and 300 zine covers. Many thanks to Ariana, Sanna, and Jen for their time and fine motor skills!
I hired a TaskRabbit yesterday to round out the zine assembly. Within minutes of posting the task to the site, I got a reply from a woman named Esther. I have only wonderful things to say about my first TaskRabbit experience. Esther powered through every zine, armed with a cup of green tea and one stapler, in under 2 hours.
With zines printed and assembled, and Socorro’s printing run two-thirds complete, we expect to be shipping out our first panty deliveries next week!
Stay tuned for a sneak peak of the final underwear designs I’m shipping out, accompanied by an explanation behind each pattern.
