It’s all over and we’ve smashed it. Our 30 day Kickstarter came to an end this morning and we are gobsmacked to see you guys have collectively pledged 137% of our funding goal.
Saying thank you really doesn’t express our gratitude but thank you, thank you, thank you.
Massive high-five to our final backers

YOU ARE ALL ROCKSTARS
When we decided to launch this campaign for issue 2 of The Quarterly we entered into a world none of us really knew anything about. After weeks of research, late night phone calls and countless emails we gritted our teeth, clicked launch and went for it.
It’s been a hugely eye-opening experience and we’ve honestly been blown away by the support of our fans, our contributors, and the creative industry. With every tweet, like, or mention in the pub, you’ve all helped us spread the word and helped The Quarterly to grow.
As well as promoting the hell out of this campaign, our contributors and production team have also been hard at work over the last few weeks to finalise everything for issue 2. The final tweaks have now been made and we’re delighted to announce that issue 2 is currently on its way to the printers. We’ll be dropping some previews over the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled. Honestly, it’s going to be awesome and you won’t be disappointed.
To everyone who backed our kickstarter we’ll be sending out emails to sort out the details for your rewards, so make sure you keep checking your inbox. Depending on where you are in the world, you should receive your print copy of issue 2 in either late October or early November. As this is a little later than we expected, we’ve also thrown in a massive poster for all of our Kickstarter backers, as your happiness is our priority.
To those of you who want a copy of Issue 2 but missed the kickstarter, we’ll be stocking issue 2 on The Quarterly website soon enough.
The Launch Night
Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone who backed this project. Our team are working hard to pull everything together for the Issue 2 launch night. If you’re free from 7pm – midnight on Friday 25th October we’d love to meet you all in London for a jolly good knees up. We’ll email you all more information as we pull everything together, but just be sure to save the date. It’s going to be a good night.
Our original plan was to use the event to launch Issue 2 and launch our exhibition simultaneously, but we’ve decided to delay the exhibition side of things for a few weeks so we can give it the time it deserves to make it amazing. Of course, you guys will all be the first people on the guest list.
Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone involved in this campaign.
YOU ARE ALL EPIC.
