    With two different versions of the art portfolio produced, buyers would be able to choose which one to purchase that would better suit their particular edition of the book. This would also allow the possibility to include additional and highly exclusive material to the art portfolio designed to match the lettered edition.

    I hope this helps!
    Thank you for the feedback!

    I definitely hear you about the sizing. The reason the IT portfolio was larger than the trim size for the Limited Edition of the book was because we wanted to do larger prints -- 11 X 14 inches. So you're right, they do end up looking very different on the bookcase together! (Plus the IT Portfolio is so big it doesn't FIT on most bookcases!)

    We'll be announcing the next portfolio this week because I just cleared the final approves and received the last quote I needed. Customers who ordered the related book and members of the CDCC will be notified a day before the general public.

    Thanks again to everyone for your feedback! It's very much appreciated.

    Most of us know but you Teri. I bet the anticipation is killing you. A round of "I hate chu" to all?

    Personally I'm on the fence about getting one...

    The next Artwork Portfolio will be announced either on Friday or Monday. The CDCC has snagged about 25% of the copies in the first three hours after we emailed them, but we asked them not to share the link until the project is announced publicly. Based on early feedback, I think this one will do pretty well!

    ORDERED! And for those who Don't get early announcements I was wrong! lol. Didn't even think of this one for some reason. I'm curious about the "box" and "Pull out satin ribbon" Maybe Dan or Brian will explain in more detail after the official announcement.

    You got me. I actually didn't know we where making these until we started sending out the early announcement notes. For those that don't get the early announcements I "think" the plan is for them to hit the regular newsletter early next week. Brian should know for sure, and can probably confirm if / when he sees this.

    Picture one of our nicer traycases -- like Legacies -- and you're headed in the right direction for the style of the box!





    It's going to be VERY nice. With the amount of artwork included (100 pieces!), a regular folder/portfolio would have done more harm than good when it came to protecting the artwork.

    Yep, the plan is for the official announcement to go out on Monday in the newsletter. We want to make sure that customers who bought the book the artwork is from, members of the CDCC, and some past customers who bought related items have first shot at this one because it's selling really quickly.

    Thanks!

    Usually I only get a few hours early notice on things and was surprised when I came back later but it still wasnt announced. I didn't understand the ribbon thing until I saw the legacies case. I have one complaint that i will make after the announcement...and its not the price but i am glad i had my gift cert tho.

    I'm still on trying to decide... A few months back I decided I would save up my cash and maybe get another signed limited King from CD when they release another book... This would kind of blow through those savings pretty fast though...

    I can tell you that, unless some kind of amazing surprise lands on my desk, there won't be another signed SK limited announced by CD this year. Not sure when the next one will be, but spring of 2014 seems like the VERY earliest. Nothing firm is in the works.

    Does that help?

    Its made things worse!

    Now I'm running through spreadsheets and tables and stabbing away at the old calculator trying to think if I could upgrade the "limited savings" into "lettered savings".

    I guess I will be TRYING to hold on to my gift certificate for a long time too. I wish the dark man contest was over BEFORE the dark man was announced.
