The purpose of this Kickstarter is to create a collaborative set of hand-pulled, affordable prints. We will be working in response to the concept of the “Pristine and Corrupt.” Although our styles and approaches to image-making are different, this is a concept we are both eager to investigate, and we are excited to see how our work will inform one another.
Our suite of prints will feature letterpress, lithography, and copper etching, each part of a limited edition. Print fanatics, get excited!
Because of your collective buying power, we will be able to offer you these prints at an extremely affordable price. All pledges that include prints will be receiving actual hand-pulled pairs from the resulting editions. Each pair of prints will consist of a print from each artist. All works will be printed using archival materials.
Keep in mind, these prices are specific to this project only, so enjoy them while they last!

Risks and challenges
The only challenges we foresee are time related, as we may potentially need more than the 3 months we are allotting for the completion of our project. However we are hard-working, dedicated printmakers, and we will try our best to complete everything within our timeline!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
A: Even though we have reached our goal, you can still donate to our project and receive prizes! Keep in mind that the prints we are offering are at a very reduced rate.
A: In each category you can pledge more than the minimum.If you want two prizes, pledge the combined amount and e-mail us, stating which prizes you want.We will send you your prizes packaged together.
A: We will be custom ordering photopolymer plates of our drawings, which will then be printed via letterpress (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letterpress_printing). So the letterpress print you receive from us will not be font/word based, but an image.
