Just got back from Gencon Indy yesterday
Just got back from Gencon Indy yesterday...
Awesome and exhausting - I had a great time.
Ah, my camera broke, so I don't have pics, but the guy I shared the booth with has pics and will be sending them, so I'll post them as soon as I get them.
Got free software from NBOS - Fractal Mapper, Profantasy was pushing my brochures "people kept asking prices for printing maps", made lots of great networking conditions. Even getting an endorsement from Russ Morrisey, CEO of EnWorld for printing is WoBS campaign maps.
Next year, I'll be setting up a "Map Print Shop" at Gencon, with color plotter, laminator, cutter in my own booth, and will be adjacent to GM Syndicate and Profantasy.
"Claire" (Save the cheerleader, save the world) of NBC's Heroes was signing autographs.
OK, I'll shutup - great time though!
I remember seeing you Hellhound...
I remember and yes it was great to meet you! Encon was a great experience -I'm definitely going next year, with my own booth.

It sound like you may have some maps for me to POD
It sounds to me like you have both the experience and the content for Map POD products. I'd be very interested in your submitting some custom maps for printing sales.

Very much like what you may have to offer.
True, I want me new business to be successful. But because I'm printing your maps, I want to see the community become successful. The whole reason for posting the announcement here, was to find "wannabe" publishers and making success stories out of their products. :D
I am still an active participant in the community trying to adapt a graphics background into a cartography... its not my only reason.
