Incredible and unforgettable experience!
Intended as surprise gift for a friend, months before her birthday, I try to always give unique and unexpected gifts to my best friends and this seemed perfect. It was an amazing experience to share with my friend and an unforgettable gift for her. Absolute perfection!
My friend works within the comic industry professionally and is busy with commissions, she also regularly receives letters from crowdfunding campaigns about possible involvement, and I didn't want the initial letter to get lost in the shuffle and she lives with her sister so I let her in on the surprise so she checked their mail everyday to make sure my friend received it.
This escaped her sister's detection since my friend briefly skimmed it but was interested enough to take it to her office, where she stored it for two weeks before tossing it into a waste bin, having not received a follow-up email from whoever sent it. It was that authentic! I received a call one morning and my friend wondered if I knew why her sister burst into her room at midnight holding the letter that she refused to answer questions about but insisted she follow up on. I refused to answer questions and she dove into solving the puzzle updating me when she made progress and especially when she was frustrated! The entire experience has built wonderful memories, inside jokes, and is a gift she treasures.
