Hey, good looking! Thanks for reading this sentence! We're launching a clever humor t-shirt co. Your ducats will help us do it right.
We need your help to get our project off the ground. Please donate and we’ll send you one (or more) of our shirts.
A few of our friends have said, “Dudes, we are on board. Just sell us the t-shirt. Why the Kickstarter thing?”
Another friend (OK, my Dad) was like, “Why do you need five thousand dollars?”
Both good questions. Here are the answers:
Anyone can make a t-shirt and sell it – and most of the time, that ‘anyone’ ends up with a lot of t-shirts sitting in a warehouse collecting dust with no idea of what a potential customer really likes. We chose Kickstarter to say, “Hey we want to put t-shirts out there that make you do a double take and laugh – what do YOU think of that idea? Are we on the right track? Will you join us in making this little dream of ours happen?”
And why five grand?
We’re pretty serious about these funny shirts. We believe that the world is ready for our brand of humor, for t-shirts that don’t rehash somebody else’s jokes.
For almost a year we have been creating concepts, designs, marketing plans, researching the business, and creating a budget with long-term goals:
1) set-up and print an initial run of shirts
2) design and launch an online store
3) finance a photoshoot for our shirts
4) create original content for marketing and advertising
5) begin a marketing campaign to be everywhere we need to be
We’ve put in our own money and tons of time, but to give this project the best shot requires additional capital.
We’re ready to take it to the next level.
We need your help to get there.
Please donate and when we reach our funding goal, we’ll send you a shirt (or two or three. Check them out below!)
We’ll be mighty grateful.
