Congrats! We reached the $7000 Goal!

$7000 Goal Reached! $10,000 Shrink Wrap Goal makes shrink wrapping FREE for all games, for everyone, forever!

We have reached the $7000 Shrink Wrap goal in 20 days! This means that we’ll have the funds to get an Advanced Shrink Wrap Machine and all games will be wrapped at $.20/game! This is a great achievement for the The Game Crafter community and it confirms that there’s significant demand for shrink wrapping after all.
