Friendshipping Postcards Kickstarter

My friend Jenn and I have a weekly podcast called FriendshippingListeners submit friendship-related questions to us, and each week we do our very best to answer them. 

We noticed one day that a pretty large percentage of our boiled down to, "Talking to people makes me feel weird and I don't know what to do." We decided to take the problem into our own hands and find a low stress way for high anxiety people to communicate.

 Texts can seem impersonal. Letters could look like a bill for student loans. No one has made a phone call since 1992. So the idea for Friendship Postcards was born.  We wrote a bunch of postcards and hired our friends to illustrate them. We ran a   successful Kickstarter campaign   together to fund the first printing, and shipped a month early.

 We did our best to think though every detail to ensure that it would be as simple as possible for a backer to receive their Kickstarter rewards and immediately, painlessly start reaching out to friends. To do this, we made the packaging as welcoming as possible, and included a backer tier that included a set of stamps.   And the unthinkable happened: with our deep knowledge of logistics and fulfillment from working at Blackbox, we were able to ship a month earlier than we anticipated.
