Two Lumps has been around for over a decade and has become a household name in snarky cat comics. At every convention, fans ask us for new lines of merch. But for the first time, we are reaching out to ask the fans to help us get those new lines of merch off the ground! New shirts! Book reprints! Meet and greets! We can do it all, with your help!
Risks and challenges
We're only asking for funding levels at or above what fans have already been willing to pay per unit for previous iterations and designs of products, but those always have had a "trickle-in" payback due to selling at conventions etc. that has resulted in straggling profit and no re-investing potential. Recently, we've had an extremely hearty (even pushy) fanbase reaction asking us to crowdsource our new designs so we can get them off the ground fast and quickly re-invest in new variations on the crowd-pleasing designs.
We've tried to space our rewards and potential stretch goals to include personal appearances and original art that is already created, so there is no risk of being unable to meet the requirements of the larger goals, as the rewards already exist. Everyone wins! Many rejoicing! Wow!
UPDATE 3/4: WOW. You guys have blown our socks off! We're scrambling to price out new ideas and requests to keep up with y'all, but here's what we've got in the pipe:
$5000 stretch goal - MET!
New Limited Edition shirt design will be offered in "aged newsprint" tan, black and white! No longer are you held hostage to a single hue!
$6000 stretch goal - MET!
ALL donation tiers above $10 get stickers added! A little extra madness for everyone.
$7000 stretch goal - ON HOLD: NEW AND IMPROVED UPDATE!
Thanks to wisdom of Kickstarter mentors, we are now putting the cart BEHIND the horse! So first: NEW OFFERINGS!
New shot glass designs involving Archie, AKA Angry Fish! (If you wish to add this reward to an existing donation, send a message), and will be available in the regular site store after Kickstarter completion, but backers get first shipping (and the likelihood of glasses being licked by the actual 'loafs). And I mean really, who doesn't need a rage-fish floating in a shot of their favorite beverage?
Also: DUNN DA DA DUNNNN! The item you've all been asking for! The one! The only! TWO-SIDED COFFEE SHIRRRRRRRRRRT! Yes, thanks to all y'all, we are now FINALLY able to offer the combo shirt you've been asking for for years! "Not Enough Coffee" on the front, and "Too Much Coffee" on the back, so you can swap as your mood and caffeine levels shift. PLUS, if we get more than 150 pre-orders for this design, we will have an extra bonus for shirt backers! Hit this Super Secret Side Goal to find out! (Super-secretness not guaranteed, in fact, likelihood of super-secret goal increases the more you talk about and share it. Void where prohibited. Do not lick super-secret fun shirt.)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
