Star Trek Inspired Journal Kickstarter Launch!

 

We are so excited to launch our Kickstarter campaign for our Star Trek® inspired First Officer’s Log hardback journal, Leather First Officer’s Log, Boldly Holding tote bag and sticker sheet. Both journals are limited edition and each has a 50 year seal. These special versions of the journals will only be available through the Kickstarter.

Our artist and designer Tracey Gurney has also created a Kickstarter exclusive Star Trek 50 year 11″ x 17″ art poster that she will hand sign!

Take a look at mock ups of all of the new stuff below and please support our campaign and spread the word so we know how many of these to make!

To Junior Size It or Not?

Opinions Please! We’re thinking of adding a junior binder size to our line up of journals, starting with our new Gen Con design. It would be a 3 ring binder, measure about 7-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ and be 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ paper compatible. It wouldn’t work for photo ops and other 8″ x 10″ things you stick in our standard journal. What do you think? Yay or Nay? Let me know in the comments or post to Twitter or Facebook!

Companion and Survivor Journal Page Layouts

A couple of fantastic customers and friends (Michelle and Jessica, you know who you are!) of ours have let us use pictures they have taken of their journal pages! Many times at the conventions, customers come back several times to look through our examples for page ideas. Here are some new really cool pages and I love them all. Whether you journal and write a lot, just stick photos on the pages or stick your badges, tickets stubs and receipts to the page (hey, I paste the Jimmy John’s menu on mine often) make your journal your own. You do you. <3

Michelle’s Companion’s Journal Pages

I have crazy journal envy! I love how she hole punched extra inserts, pinned buttons to the page and added her own game demo notes from Gen Con.

Jessica’s Survivor Journal Pages

Jessica had lots of great photo ops, autographs and artwork that she put in the protective sleeves in her Survivor’s Journal. I love the original art!

If we could have, we probably would have sprawled on the hood for Whitesnake like photos.

Last weekend I vended at Creation Entertainment’s Supernatural Nashville convention. It was my first con this year without my business partner, Ted, and I was pretty freaked out about that. But our fantastic artist and friend, Tracey Gurney, was with me the whole time and our tables were together. We teamed up and both had fantastic shows! The icing on the cake was when a customer, who was wearing her Carry On tote bag holding her Hunter’s Journal, was the last one to ask a question during the J2 panel and Jared grabbed her bag and journal! He held them for a bit on stage and that’s pretty freaking fantastic. Thank you Nashville and we can’t wait to see our SPN family in Vegas!

INDIANAPOLIS (February 4, 2016) Con*Quest Journals™ is excited to announce a two year license agreement with Gen Con®, The Best Four Days in Gaming™, for Gen Con branded Con*Quest Gaming Journals, tote bags, mini journals, and tabletop gaming pages.

This year’s Gen Con Con*Quest Journal will feature the Gen Con logo with new original artwork themed on the game that started it all on custom quality binders. The journals will include newly designed pages based on feedback gathered from the gaming community, with themed pages for notes, demos, photos and more, plus protective sleeves and business card pages.
