About

These are our fun and empowering MudTail pig friends. They are fun, they are cute, they are empowering, and have a positive outlook. All these designs are going to be available on the print on demand store that is under construction. For mass printing, we are starting with 4 pigs and will introduce a new design as it is possible. We would love to have your comments on which designs we should start with for mass printing... we are leaning towards: Respect, Peace, Achieve, and Super Star. 

*For your rewards you can select any of the 14 available designs. Please be aware that printed colors may not be as bright as those illustrated below.

As we mentioned on the video, we communicated with our infant with sign language. He used these words, and some others that we hope to introduce in designs soon. He speaks now, and every day comes with a new word, but he still uses his signs every time he says the words he knows. These t-shirts are charming, educational, and I can assure conversation starters. Everywhere we go with our son people ask about his signs.You can learn and teach your child how to sign these words, and by wearing these shirts you will be sharing this knowledge with others too!

*We plan to donate a percentage of the retail sales proceeds to "ASLU" the American Sign Language University, where we learned the correct sign movements and did our research for this project.

You have seen our video and our designs... Now, where are the funds going?

The funds will help us print in volume (lower costs) to ship your rewards, start our stock pile, and with overall freight costs. We will use some of the money to design and establish our own eCommerce store A.K.A The Oinker Shop. This will also help us continue working with our graphic designers and to copyright our brand.

What process will be used for printing?

We are considering a few options. We have tested digital, and are working on getting screen print and dye sublimation process samples.

Most likely, we will be using American Apparel Tri-blend shirts. It will depend on the final print process and which fabrics it can print on. But we want our shirts to be soft, comfortable, and durable.

The designs will print on the center front panel of the shirt. We wanted to add our logo on the top at the back of the shirt, but it is not cost effective at this moment.

When are you getting your rewards?

We should be shipping your rewards February-March 2014. Custom rewards might take a little longer as we might have to redesign as needed.

With the Pig Royalty reward of $50 you get our "You Rock" t-shirt. Because you, our backers, rock!!

YOU ROCK colloq. phr. - expression used to convey gratitude, admiration, and/or affection.

We want to express our sincere gratitude for your support. *This is a representation of how the shirts will be printed. The final style might look a little different.

We need you, kickstarter backers, to our help launch MudTails.

We have big plans for our brand... be fun, learn, and feel empowered with MudTails!
