As many of you know, Code&Quill launched on Kickstarter in early 2015. After some great exposure and a lot of early excitement, we rounded out the campaign with several times our fundraising goal. What began as a project to build a better notebook became the foundation for a better brand, and for our first year we've focused hard on perfecting those first products. We wanted to source the best available materials and manufacturing; we wanted to create an online presence that reflected our core ethos; we wanted to nail a combination of qualities that we considered essential but that hadn’t been found in one notebook. That’s the effort and intention we poured into the Origin, Traveler, and Scribe—our flagship products—this past year.
To our fortune, success has persisted beyond the Kickstarter campaign. We began receiving pre-orders as soon as the Kickstarter was over, and we’ve had more and more orders every month since. We sold out well before the 2015 holidays were over, exceeding our own expectations. To date, we’ve delivered notebooks to thousands of customers in more than 50 countries, and we’re proud of the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received. From an early date, we began to see that Code&Quill had much more to give the world than a couple of notebooks, and it’s that potential that we’re beginning to fulfill now.
Back to Kickstarter!
In the next two weeks, Code&Quill will be back on Kickstarter to launch our first new product of 2016: the large-format, hardcover Monolith notebook.
We recently received our first samples, and we are STOKED to start using them. To hear more, you’ll just need to wait until our Kickstarter is underway!
Once the campaign begins, it’ll run for a month or slightly longer. We’ll be updating our followers about the Kickstarter campaign (very occasionally) through our e-mail list and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), so we encourage you to join us there to get the latest information. Whether you were a previous Kickstarter backer or not, we encourage you to join our upcoming campaign and make a pledge if you feel inclined. Just remember that, in exchange for a Kickstarter pledge, you get the very first Monoliths sold in the world! Not only that, it’s one of the best ways you can spread the word about us and help us grow (which lets us make even more awesome gear, even faster).
