Dasherie Shipping Status & Our Next Issue

DASHERIE | the Black & White issue

Shipping Status

A shipping status update to know when to expect your copy of Dasherie is below. The folks who pre-ordered Dasherie in other countries have already started to receive their copies! But hey wait – why are they receiving it across the pond and we haven’t started receiving it here in the US yet?! Read on…

For all pre-orders made up to and including July 30, 2014:

Countries outside the US were shipped first class international mail on Monday, 8/4/14. We have received several reports from readers in Great Britain that they received their magazine yesterday (8/12/14).

Domestic (US) readers were shipped standard post flat rate which takes approximately 2-8 business days. I had hoped that would mean Dasherie would begin arriving in states close to Florida before the end of last week but unfortunately, we are still anxiously awaiting. The rest is up to the US Post Office.

For those who ordered after 7/30/14, please allow 4-6 weeks from date of purchase for arrival both domestic and international.

Now that we have gone through the entire publishing, printing, shipping process, the next issue should run much smoother with very clear timelines.

There has been a little change in the timing and frequency for the next issues. Dasherie will be semiannual for this year and next and will hopefully go to quarterly for 2016. Our next issue, Winter 2014, is slated for an early November completion.

Issue 2 – The Black and White Issue

Dasherie Issue 2 | The Black & White IssueSpeaking of the next issue – work has already begun on Issue 2 – The Black and White Issue. This issue will feature:

  • work done in black & white,

Had the final approval meeting yesterday and after a few minor delays, Dasherie is at press production! Hooray! Just wanted to send out a quick message to let everyone know Dasherie is at press and will be shipped no later than August 1st.

Thank you for your patience as we go through this first production process and learn how long each stage takes, etc. After reviewing the proof, I can say with confidence you will find it well worth the wait!

Finally! It’s Time to Order! Announcing Another Dazzling Dashing Artist!

Julie Song Featured in Dasherie

I have butterflies in my stomach. I have been working literally night and day to get the first issue of Dasherie Magazine ready for all you letter lovers. I can say this — you will not be disappointed. I have been getting downright giddy putting together the pages due to all the beautiful calligraphy. One hundreds pages of calligraphy!

I am very excited to share with you another fantastic feature — Dashing Artist, Julie Song! Julie is so creatively inspiring and an absolute delight to chat with. Learn how she left the practice of law to become a full time (and then some) lettering artist. Julie shares with us what inspires her and her beautiful lettering so do not miss this issue!

Julie Song featured in DasherieSpeaking of which — the time has come! Dasherie Magazine is now available for pre-order. I am putting the finishing touches on design and Dasherie will soon go to the printer and be ready to ship in just a couple weeks. So order your copy now here.

The first run of Dasherie will be a small one. So order soon as once sold out — they will not be reprinted.

I also would like to say thank you to the wonderful artists and friends who have given me so much support in putting Dasherie together. This is the most creatively challenged I have been in a long time and I can honestly say I feel at the top of my game. I just feel like this is meant to be and I am doing exactly what I should be doing.

So thank you to each and everyone of you! Excited doesn’t even describe how I feel about sharing Dasherie with you. I just know you are going to love it as much as I do!

Truly,
Erica
