FAQ

If I buy the hardcover, can I still get the bonus files included with the digital bundle?

Yes, absolutely. Just email info@gomedia.us with your order confirmation or receipt and we'll hook you up! Please allow 2-3 business days due to the volume of requests we receive.

Does the book go into the business side of running a clothing company?

Yes, that's mostly what this book is. It's about business, strategy, self-promotion, marketing, and building a fan base. You'll find all that and more in Thread's Not Dead.

Can I view the eBook on my iPad?

Since Safari on iPad cannot download ZIP files, you will need to download the files to a PC or MAC. Then unzip the contents and add your PDF or ePUB files to iTunes and sync your iPad. It will transfer the book to your iPad for viewing.

Does the book cover the printing aspects?

Yes there's an entire chapter on printing techniques and inspiration. It runs through the common practices and prepping files for print and communicating with your printer.

Can I get an archive of all hyperlinks referenced in Thread's Not Dead?

Sure! I originally created this archive of links for that purpose but it wasn't very user friendly. Fortunately, an avid reader cleaned it up and made a more user-friendly version.

Why is the Kindle version on Amazon only $9.99?

For one, Amazon discourages you from pricing your ebooks higher than that. Also, the Kindle version does not include the bonus content and the layout isn't as thoroughly designed. It does contain the full text however.
