Hi, I'm Ellis and I'm the illustrator behind Pastel Elixir which I run with my husband James.
Our ultimate dream has always been to have tote bags and *one day* t-shirts in our online shop and to start off we'd really like to go for the tote bags with our animal watercolour painting design on.
The money raised will go towards the manufacturing of the bags, shipping, packaging and the Kickstarter fees.
Our animal painting design is our very first tote bag we plan on producing, however if we smash our goal and go above this, we will definitely be releasing another design or two!
Our design(s) will be sent to our manufacturer within one week of the campaign finishing and will then be shipped within 2-3 weeks from then, possibly even sooner!
Bag dimensions will be 380mm x 410mm and will be printed with a high quality transfer vinyl material. The bags themselves will be Westford Mill totes in a sky blue shade. We've tried to match the colour as closely as possible within our image but it's quite tough to give an exact shade as we don't have an example bag to show!
We've decided to add another design option to this campaign, so if you'd like to pledge you'll be able to choose which design you'd like if this project reaches it's funding goal :) options are the animals or this new coffee design!
STRETCH GOAL #1 - Avocado Bag Unlocks at £500!
STRETCH GOAL #2 - Unicorn Bag Unlocks at £550
Risks and challenges
We've never had tote bags printed before so what we have done prior to launching our Kickstarter, is sent our designs off to the manufacturer to make sure that the colours and placement of the design are exactly what we had pictured.
We could also end up with some 'seconds' bags but we will ensure we get enough bags made to send to our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
