I've finally received copies from the actual batch print. Do check out the pictures in this post.

The sample print of OUR SECRET HISTORY doujinshi and merchandise are finally out!

Pictures are taken with flash because my room is dark. So there may be some colour differences between actual item and photo. I apologize for that ^^;

Book (Sample copy):

 

Paper used for cover: 300G Matt Art Paper, with protective coating

Initially, I'd wanted to use more special paper to give the cover more pop. I was even considering hard cover. Sadly, to have the printing company purchase special paper for my use, I'd have to print a lot more copies, so I had to give it up and go with the regular type of cover paper that most doujins use.

The cover has turned out to be more reddish than the actual image on screen. I guess it's due to the coating and the fact that my screen is very bright. Also, because I didn't add the bleed area, the bottom part of the cover is a little cropped off ^^; For the final print, I have adjusted the colours slightly, and added the bleed, so there shouldn't be any issues with the cover being cropped, but I can't guarantee that I managed to reduced the colour difference between the actual cover and the cover image file. However, I personally feel that it doesn't affect the beauty of the cover.

The back cover has become a lot darker, and the panelled wood texture cannot be seen, losing the feel of an oil painting frame. It makes me a little sad, because I'd worked on the texture for quite a long time!!! I've brightened the colours and hopefully, it shows up in the final print.

This is the spine. It's 1 cm thick.



Inner pages:
The black and white pages are 80G wood free paper, the coloured pages are 157G double-coated matt art paper.

The inner pages turned out pretty well, and colour differences were insignificant. But because it's a pretty thick book (168 pages). It's a bit difficult to see the sides near the binding at the front and end parts of the book and you'd have to pull the pages apart to see. It doesn't matter though, the binding of the book is strong, so don't be afraid to pull! XD

I've picked a couple of pages to showcase:



Even the black and white pictures turned out really clear!


(You just had to choose these, didn't you? XD I added the mosaic here to censor the pics, but the mosaic will not be there on the actual item. You won't see any vital regions though, so don't be too disappointed XD)

If you're wondering why there is a black and white and coloured version of the same pic, I've explained it here.



Here are more innocent pics this time XD The picture on the right is actually done in traditional medium (pencil and colour pencils), and it still showed up really well on print <3

The book costs 17 SGD (or ~13USD), excluding shipping fees. 
Please note that this price is for buyers outside China, and already consists of paypal fees and domestic shipping from the publishing company to the overseas retailer.

Buyers in China have a different pricing system, please refer to here for the prices.

A3 Poster (Sample copy)



Paper type: 157G double-coated matt art paper

The image in the poster is more yellow than the original image file. Personally, it looks like there is evening sunlight falling on Ivan and Yao, which is kind of romantic XD But I've adjusted the colours, so perhaps the final print will not be so yellow.

I have also remove the words on the top right corner for the final print, so it will look like this:


A3 posters are sold at 5 SGD (or ~4USD), inclusive of poster tube. It will only be sold with the book and not on it's own. You can purchase one poster with every book purchase. Those who pre-ordered will receive priority.

Rochu "Eternal Bond" Mug



This is the marriage cup that Ivan and Yao drank from when they exchanged their vows of eternal love! I secretly duplicated eight identical ones. Anyone who drinks from it will enjoy a blessed love life! XD

Ok let's get to business XD
The picture is printed via thermal transfer. I read that it's resilient to water and heat, but I can't vouch for it as I've not tried it. (Anyway, could you really bear to use the mug to drink coffee?)

There are only 8 mugs on sale (now 7 as someone has requested me to reserve one). Sorry, I don't have money to make any more for now. After Chinese New Year (February), I'll do a survey to see if anyone else wants a mug. 10 is the minimum number to print, so as long as at least 10 people want, I'll make more next year. But prices may go up by that time though!

 
The mug is securely packaged in a styrofoam box to prevent it from being damaged in the shipping process. It's very safe. I've shipped it from China to Singapore (around 8 hours flight) and there are no problems!

Price: 8 SGD (or ~7 USD), inclusive of styrofoam box. For now, it will only be sold with the book and not on it's own. You can purchase one mug with every book purchase. Those who pre-ordered will receive priority.

Pre-order gift - postcard (sample copy)



300G double-coated Matt Art Paper, 10cm x 14 cm

Initially, I planned to use the cover image for the post card, but I've changed my mind, because:
- the postcard is small and many details are lost
- too many merchandise featuring the cover image XD

So this will be the new picture:


I hope nobody minds. Anyway, it's really pretty too, isn't it?

I will start contacting those who made reservations soon, but most likely regular sales begins after New Year, because now is really not a good time to ship stuff ^^; Keep a look out on the official website!

Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!
