About this project
Beer Press is a modern product and art piece for your home, office, basement, and bar. The collection was designed by highly talented and seasoned graphic artists. Made in the USA, each printed piece is delicately handcrafted by a vintage 1960's letterpress for the most beautiful and decorative coasters on the market.
Designed for visibility - the 6 pub/bar coasters are well displayed by a premium bamboo stand. The eco-friendly stand is deeply engraved with the Beer Press logo. The complete Beer Press Collection includes 8 x 8 inch fine art prints for incredible wall art.
"Stick with what you love and success will follow." That's been the motto for the majority of my life and an ideology I truly live by. When creating the Beer Press Collection, I followed protocol - but this time, I wanted to combine four passions into one idea.
For this product, I blended my love of design, typography, letterpress, and of course beer into something I started calling Beer Press. Well, the name stuck, and we got working away on prototypes for the entire Beer Press Collection.
It took three months of planning, designing, and many long days/weeks of shop time with skilled pressmen and wood workers to fully complete the entire Beer Press Collection. When it was finished, everyone involved was thrilled with the outcome.
From the conception of the original idea, to the typographic design work, to the executed end product - each piece of the Beer Press Collection was a success. I knew it was ready for Kickstarter's help and I was so happy that the product would be available before Christmas for everyone else to enjoy.
Shipping and Delivery Time
The Beer Press Collection will be shipped for free within the Domestic USA and World-Wide for an additional fee. To ensure an even quicker delivery time - once our goal has been met, we will begin production on the Beer Press Collection early. Making a great gift, the Beer Press product will deliver two weeks before Christmas.
Beer Press for Commercial Use
The hospitality industry, including bars and restaurants are requesting to order the Beer Press Collection in large quantities. Directly after funding, I will update all backers regarding bulk orders. Again, I want to thank every backer for their help to make Beer Press a widely used product.
Special thanks to the following designers. Their exceptional work has made my dream of the Beer Press Coasters come to reality: Joe Ross, Simon Alender, Ryan Brinkerhoff, Nathan Mummert, Scott Greci, and David Stuebe.
Risks and challenges
At this point, we've overcome many challenges to get the collection of Beer Press prototypes designed, handcrafted, and fully completed. With great pleasure, I can now confidently offer the finished and polished products to you on Kickstarter.
Kickstarter pledges will be fulfilled in the order they were placed so depending on the success of Beer Press, time will be our biggest challenge. Understanding this, we’ve allocated extra time in our schedule to ensure that we can ship and deliver by the promised date (2 weeks before Christmas). If Beer Press is blessed enough to exceed the goal, I'm prepared to start up the letterpress and have our pressmen begin foiling, cutting, sanding, and laser engraving prior to the campaign ending.
While I know it’s possible that we’ll encounter other challenges, we’re fully committed to the Beer Press Collection and I truly appreciate each backer making this retail product a reality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
My workshop is located in Tempe, Arizona. Every piece of the product is built in the USA and handcrafted by people who take pride in their art.
If Beer Press is blessed enough to exceed the goal, I'm prepared to begin production slightly sooner, to ensure delivery time. We are shipping Beer Press products during the first and second week of December (4th-10th).
Everyone is asking this question and it's important. To request multiple sets for any specific reward, make sure to pledge 2x, 3x, 4x, etc the amount. This way, we can send multiple sets to you. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks again backers!
