Cool Poster Print Series using design to celebrate travel & cities. Graphic Design, Technology, Popular Illustration, and fun all in 1.
FINAL Update on 1/23/14:
I just want say that I will be re-running this campaign again for a 7 day period with a lower goal of $200 to ensure that everyone who originally pledged can pledge again and get their order fulfilled. I feel we could have a bigger response also, since I have more prints created now, during the start of the campaign.
Asides from running this campaign again for the next 7 days, I will also have these prints available for purchase at www.zazzle.com Just search for my store, SteveChicCustoms or Localism Prints.
I will also be making an official website solely for Localism Prints and all of my future designs and prints soon. Stay tuned, as I will post updates on my second kickstarter page.
And of course, you may always email me with any questions or ideas at email@example.com
Thanks again, Steve Ciccarelli
Hello Kickstarter fans and fellow entrepreneurs!
My name is Steve Ciccarelli and I am asking for your support to produce a poster series called, Localism Prints.
I've always been a big traveler and enjoy seeing historical sites, but I also love to hear the way people talk and act from various cities. I always find it fun traveling to a city and trying to fit in with the locals. But somehow, no matter how hard I try, they are always on to me!
This poster series celebrates the localisms of various cities, in a fun, humorous, yet beautiful typographic way. Each print will be professionally printed on Coronado SST paper with high-quality dye-based ink so that each phrase jumps off the page!
See below for the cities that have been pledged for and created so far.
See further below for the rest of the story!
I will continue to add cities ABOVE for you to choose from.You can request any variation of colors and it will still be considered a Premade Print.
Or help widen the selection by pledging for a Custom Print!
So whether you:
- live in the city that you are funding and want to give tribute to your "ole stomping ground,"
- have visited these cities and can't wait to go back,
- OR JUST LIKE POKING FUN AT THE LOCALS!
Either way, these Localism Prints are...Wicked Good!
(see what I did there : )
The creativity behind this project is you as the backer have various options. You can choose from one of the prints that are already designed, or you can help create your own custom print. If you desire a custom print, you simply choose the appropriate pledge level, then just send me a message of which city you would like created, along with your phrases, sayings, names, and/or historical sites, or ANYTHING that you would like on the poster! Be original, be spontaneous, have fun with it! You may be as specific as you wish, or you can just choose a city, and I'll do the rest! When you choose a pledge level, I will immediately message you with a couple brief questions to determine exactly what you want.
If you are going completely custom, provide 6-8 phrases/sentences that you come up with by sending me a message whenever you are ready, no rush. This allows the print to truly be one of your own! You are also able to choose ANY color, and ANY amount of colors that you wish. (ex. black background with white font, and this sentence red, with this phrase blue, it's all up to you.) You can also choose if you would like the text on an angle.
If you wish to join the trend and own a part of this print series, but do not want a custom print, and instead prefer a premade one...or two...or three, just simply select the appropriate premade pledge amount, and then inform me which one you want, via message. I am starting off with a select amount of cities and will provide more on a daily basis to have a wide selection.
Another cool part is as soon as you select a custom print, it will get designed, then put up on this Kickstarter page with your name under it, to give kudos to your creativity. People will then be able to choose from your print that you helped create!
Creating a Custom Print = more Premade Prints = A wider selection of Premade Prints to choose from!
I will update the page to show the Top Ten Most Popular Prints. So with your help, we can make this series happen! Please take a look at the various pledge levels to see the many ways I will show my gratitude. Each and every print will be handled with the utmost professionalism. See "Specs" at the bottom for sizes, paper type, and printing process.
There are 3 sizes to choose from:
Small 5" x 7" (postcard with design on the back, and space for stamp)
Medium 8" x 12"
Large 11" x 17"
All prints are trimmed to bleed and printed on 100# Coronado SST paper, made by Neenah. http://www.neenahpaper.com/finepaper/morebrands/coronadosstpapers/
Each Localism Print is digitally or offset printed, depending on the amount of colors you choose, with high-quality dye-based ink.
Each print will be hand signed and numbered on the back. (except for the postcards as they have the design on the back).
With your support through this Kickstarter,each backer will have their Localism Prints arrive to their shipping address before the end of January. All pledges include the shipping cost.
Aside from your funds helping pay for the printing and ink costs, and shipping costs, your funds will also go towards creating a website dedicated solely to this project, so prints can continue to be ordered long after this campaign ends. The professional, user friendly website will be completed by the end of January as well. Through your funding and support, you will help make Localism Prints a true BRAND, and help reach extra goals, such as using different mediums to print on, like buttons, t-shirts, hats, playing cards, etc. I will keep you updated.
Please help make this print series a reality by spreading the word and sharing with your friends.

We Are Getting Noticed!:
Another cool project created by Jay Powell uses the inspiration of cities and maps! Artistic City Maps of different cities will add color to any wall and are suitable for framing. Check out NEON MAPS.
Risks and challenges
I don't see there being any risk with production delays, since I will not be waiting until the campaign ends to start the design of the prints. Instead, I will be designing and printing these as soon as they come in. This way they will all be ready to be shipped as soon as I meeting my funding goal.
I will examine each print closely to make sure they are up to professional standards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
