About this project

MAGNET EXPLOSION !۞!

It's time to expand our magnet selection, and you can help us out and deck out your own space at the same time.  We've been in the Arts & Crafts business for over 26 years and our current goal is to expand our hand painted magnet selection to over a thousand designs.  We want to offer something for everyone, and that takes a lot of variety!And having one of each just won't do, so having the variety we want to offer is going to take a lot of material.  This being our slower season (we don't have any such thing as "down time"), is the time to make it happen.

As is almost always the case for self-employed people, when we have time to work on new projects we don't have much money coming in, and when we're making money we're working 24/7 to make it happen.  That's where the great people at Kickstarter come in!  With your help we can get some cash for materials while we actually have time to work on our new project before the spring arts & crafts show rush is upon us.

We can accomplish our production goals with this relatively small amount of money because this is an expansion of our existing product line, and we don't have any new processes to figure out as we go along.

Risks and challenges

A problem that came up awhile back was that the manufacturer of our ceramic blanks changed the coating they use on them, and the paint wouldn't adhere to the new surface. We had to alter our prep process to remove the coating, and we were right back in production. This kind of thing can come up anytime, but we've been overcoming obstacles and stayed in this business for over 26 years so far. We're confident we can keep it up! We promise you that we'll do our best to overcome all obstacles and keep an open line of communication if there are any delays.
