Affinity Workbooks

Recommended Posts

The Official Serif Affinity workbooks were advertised in a recent email. Buy the book at discount and get free t-shirt. I already had purchased the Designer workbook and thought it was a great way to learn. I took up the offer from Serif and bought the Photo workbook. I was expecting the sale to be getting rid of the old books on hand. If it was different it wouldn't be that much different. Amazingly enough, I didn't realize it was updated for 1.7. Is the Designer book updated for 1.7? Is there going to be a Publisher book soon?

I received an email (Sept 14th) offering the workbooks at a discount however there was no mention of a t-shirt.

I'm puzzled! ... Was the t-shirt offer when the workbook(s) order was placed or was the t-shirt offer to selected countries only?

Thanks for your quick reply Patrick.

I'm aware the workbooks can't be shipped to certain countries however Australia isn't one of those countries so I'd have thought there wouldn't be an issue regarding the t-shirt. No worries.

Are the t-shirts available for purchase? I don't have much use for a workbook (I prefer vid tuts) however I certainly would like to purchase a t-shirt :)

Enough said!

Thanks :)

 

Edit: A smart cookie (living in the UK, US, ?) could have a little enterprising business on selling to us down here in the colonies and conquered territories ;)

Both Designer and Photo Workbooks have been updated for 1.7 and a Publisher Workbook is currently being worked on, no eta on the release date yet.

Any way we can get on a list to be emailed when the Publisher book is available?

Everyone [located in a country we can ship to] who has bought anything (or claimed free content from the Welcome screen) from the Affinity Store is likely to be contacted (unless you opt out of future marketing contact). I cannot see the marketing team not wanting to tell everyone they can ;)

I am quite sure I opted out of everything as I hate spam, which is why I was specifically asking about a notification list for this one item. I will assume by your answer that would be a no. I was waiting to buy Publisher until the book came out, guess I will just check back whenever I remember to do so and maybe see it then.

Not exactly no, just not as directly. Without all the information to hand to hand I gave the generic answer for how we will tell those we have permission to email.

A more specific answer for anyone unsubscribed would be to choose one of these ways to check. 

  1. Become a follower of the News and Information forum and watch your emails, rather than remember to visit.
  2. Check the Welcome screen of your Affinity Applications occasionally ( "Help" > "Welcome..." or on start if not turned off)
  3. If you have a feed reader, one of these Affinity Spotlight feeds will let you know.
  4. Follow us on Facebook, not ideal as we post a lot and you could still miss it.

none are ideal and you will see lots as well as the Publisher workbook, but there you go. I think the (Publisher) Welcome feed is the least intrusive and will have the Workbook on from launch.
