Help us design the Gen Con® Con*Quest Journal!

Last week we announced that we have signed a license agreement with Gen Con® to produce a Gen Con branded Con*Quest Adventure Journal™, tote bag, mini journal, and tabletop gaming pages! You can check out the press release here.

Now we’re ready to get started designing our new pages!

For the cover, we’re going to produce a new canvas binder with the Gen Con and Con*Quest logos. My plan for the inside pages is to use some of our existing artwork and incorporate new pages that really fit the needs and uses of attendees. This is where you come in! Whether you back us last year during our Kickstarter or not, we need your input. To me, the most useful pages for Gen Con are Artist Quest, Panel Quest, Cosplay Quest and City Quest, along with the boxes, squares and other coinciding pages that we have used.

The removed pages are: Autograph Quest, Vendor Quest, Peep Quest. We keep our 4 Ultra Pro sleeves, the business card holder (natch) and zipper pouch. We can add 3 to 4 new page designs, double printing them so it totals 6 to 8 new pages.

What pages would you like to see?

One KS backer last year used our general squares designed page to make demo notes. Demo notes from an awesome KS backer.

We also saw people holding up white paper with their gamer tags on them so they could find their groups. We know character notes are important. Tell us in the comments here, on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Tumblr: what pages would you use most? How can we make this journal the very best tool for you to not only capture your Gen Con fun, but to value it as a an integral part of your experience? The new pages will be available in the full journal as well as an “expansion pack” that can be purchased separately.

Plus we’re adding our Con*Panion mini journal into the mix! This 4″ x 6-3/4″ handheld mini journal is the perfect small notepad for note taking and the pages can then be tucked into sleeves that are incorporated into your journal.

Tell us what would work for you? Lined pages, open blanks, a combination?

We’ll be collecting feedback through April 17 so think about it, talk about it and share it with us!

And thanks again to the fantastic support of the Gen Con and gaming community. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you!

New Webseries: Quest of a Con Vendor

We have often googled, searched, scoured and generally researched ourselves into a frenzy to find the most efficient ways to vend at cons. There is just not a lot of information sharing going on here! And it’s not that we’ve figured it all out yet either. Every single show brings us a whole new set of challenges, regardless of how prepared we are or how many times we’ve done that show. I started recording a little bit of what it is like for us when we’re setting up and working a show. With each show we do, I’ll try to get more video of how we get ready and how each con has it’s very own flavor. Hope you like our first installment of Quest of a Con Vendor!

Kickin’ it with a Kickstarter Campaign!

Today marks a big event in the young history of our journals: we launched our Kickstarter campaign today! What is Kickstarter you might ask? It’s the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. With that said, we’re ready to move our journal business to the next level so we have inventory for the remaining 2014 cons we will be vending at plus online inventory as well.

We can use any and all support to keep this business going. We believe in it, we love it and we can’t wait to share it with all con-goers! Take a look at our campaign and share, support, like, tweet…whatever you can do, we appreciate!
