I created posters inspired by Video Game characters. Plenty of people have asked for prints, now's your chance to pre-order or help me get these made!
There are two things I think about almost all the time (other than my lovely wife) those are: Video Games and Graphic Design. I decided to combine my passions for these series of posters for my personal blog. I had no plans for them, it was just a fun little project. Until I posted them on Behance.net that is. The posters "blew up" as you might say.
I got dozens and dozens of inquiries asking where prints could be purchased, from not only fans but from a few people in the video game industry as well. I researched available outlets and discovered that the cost to get them professionally printed was way out of the range of what I could afford. So I looked to Kickstarter to help me out.
They'll be 18" x 24" and will be screen-printed locally in Chicago. The amount I'm asking for covers the set-up and printing cost for 150 copies of each poster (450 posters total). In addition to that, it will also cover the cost of an initial mailing (as I plan to do all the packing and mailing myself.)
I'm also using this as a way for anyone who'd like a poster to pre-order them. They'll only be $25 dollars a piece through Kickstarter, but if there are any left, depending on demand, I may need to up the price a bit. So act now!
As a Graphic Designer in today's industry, its not very often that I get to see something I made get printed in such a beautiful old school manner. I've always wanted to get prints made of some of my artwork and with your help I totally can!
UPDATE: Donations are still being accepted.
Add $5 to your donation for shipping to Canada, add $10 for the rest of the world.
Because I keep getting asked, when the project closes on May 1st, everyone will be contacted asked for their Address and Poster Request. Keep in mind, these aren't printed yet, so once I get all requests, I can place the order, then account for production time and mailing. In a perfect world, it will mostly be take care of by the end of June, beginning of July.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
