  • Kickstarters are hard to manage, so let’s do an independant push via store for holiday. Look at making a retail store on a breakout page that is slightly separated by Breadpig. Perhaps work with different fulfillment company, especially T-Shirts. *Grassroots Mapping Forum Subscriptions-- 250 members in order to do bulk mailing. Issue with Amplifier, 1000 makes it sustainable. fulfillment -- their link to subscribe wasn’t working for weeks.
