About this project
We want to develop a new avenue for selling handcrafted items in our existing laser engraving business. These journals are the first step and we hope to produce several more projects in the near future.
How will we use the money?
The money raised in this Kickstarter project will go towards the production of the journals, a new website, and a sewing machine that can handle more production and also have an embroidery feature. Our website will provide a simple "top ten" showcase of handmade items that we have made or are helping others to make.
Slightly bigger...in addition, we will also be carving out a space in our retail shop where we can sell these handcrafted items. It is our goal to share our laser engraver and knowledge of how to run a brick & mortar business with those skilled craftworkers like this one:
So, are you interested?
If you are so kind as to support this initial venture, we will be grateful. Also, we will keep you in the loop as to what exactly we are trying to put together. We would like to share the journey with you as it develops.
NOTE: Since these journals are all handcrafted, they will each be unique and may differ slightly from the photographs in tone, texture, and thickness.
So, if you're cool and decide to go in...here are the decisions you need to make:
When will I receive my journal?
After we receive the information needed to get started (a simple form to fill out with the above choices) we will have your journal ready within a few weeks of the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
Please take a look at our photos and let us know if you have any questions about anything. We are trying to put together a plan that will be enjoyable in the short term and also lead to a larger plan in the near future.
MORE PHOTOS FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE:
Shipping to Canada will be an additional 15USD.
For the $100 level, your choices of material are either Tanned or Untanned leather (see example photos) and any style of your choice. In addition, we are happy to accommodate different images or quotes as you'd like. With laser engraving, we can basically etch anything you can design on CorelDraw or Illustrator. Graphics with clean lines and a good level of white/black contrast work best. Think clip art or Banksy style stencils and you will have good results.
Yes, you can have us engrave any quote with space being your only limitation. After we communicate about what you'd like, we will prepare a digital design proof to make sure we are on the same page (or cover in this case...) prior to engraving.
