What the Talossan Stamp Project is doing is creating a first mass-printed stamp for Talossa, under the authority of the Royal Bank & Post. We've got the design, we've got the printer lined up, we've got a solid estimate of costs — now we just need the money, and we can go, go, GO!
For this first issue, we're keeping things simple. Self-adhesive, monochrome, 1 inch by 1 inch, square cut, printed on rolls. Workmanlike, respectable, a solid first release.
The primary purpose of making these stamps is to emphasize Talossa's reality as an entity, with the theory that the more we make, the more emphatic the statement is. If we're funded to the $160 goal, we can make 1,000, but things go sharply up from there:
- $210 would let us make 1,500
- $280 would let us make 5,000
- $330 would let up make 10,000, ten times the basic goal
- $400 would let us make 25,000
- $500 would let us make a whole 50,000.
The secondary purpose will be to raise money through sale of the stamps; the hope is that we can sell enough to fund Talossa's web hosting costs, eliminate the Party Registration Fee, and finance further collectables (which themselves could then be sold to help cover web hosting costs and keep the Party Registration Fee dead). Whether we can do any of that will, to a large extent, depend on how many of these stamps we sell now.
Risks and challenges
Risks are, we believe, minimal. We have the design and the proper digital files. We have a reputable printer, and quotes from possible alternate printers in case the first can't handle an utterly routine job.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
