About

Teen girls can scratch-off each inspiring movie they've watched!

When we were teens we loved movies. Today, it's more important than ever for teens to absorb stories about powerful young women. 

That's why we're creating Heroic Girls in Movies. It's the perfect marriage between a fun resource and an inspirational piece of wall art. 

  • 18x24" poster on heavyweight archival paper
  • Easy to scratch-off
  • Includes 42 smart/fun movies, all certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes 
Over time, you watch one of these inspiring movies, then you can scratch it off.
Over time, you watch one of these inspiring movies, then you can scratch it off.

It's a gift teens will love.

We think teenage young women can get engaged in their movie choices. Over time, every hand-drawn illustration stays hidden under a layer of silver scratch-off foil until she sees the movie. Then, she'll scratch it off to reveal the full-color portrait underneath. 

This scratch-off poster is a conversation piece that will last for years.

These young women are mighty and timeless.

You won't find any girls trying to get a vampire to fall in love with them. No transformations of nerdy teens into fashion models or delicate princesses. In this poster, nerds don't have to change, and princesses kick butt.

Why is this important right now?

Today's teens are facing a challenging world — a world that's full of opportunities for positive action. As they raise their voices and contribute to just causes, the movies they're watching will support their energy and spirit. It's amazing how much of an impact a great film can make.

Plus, we're making tattoos!

Backers can get a six-pack of temporary tattoos featuring the names and faces of badass female-powered movies. What social gathering doesn't get better when you walk in wearing these? See the rewards (at right) for a list of tattoos.

 Backers of 2+ posters get a Viewing Guide 

This printable, electronic PDF Viewing Guide provides discussion topics for each movie. It's a convenient tool for discussing ideas about the various stories and characters, and what it means for us in the real world. 

Project Timeline

Who We Are

Our mission is to make fun paper goods that inspire teens, women, and other groups who demand and deserve equal justice.

As repeat creators, this is our sixth Kickstarter campaign. Our previous poster, Heroic Girls in Books, launched with the help of over 450 backers and inspired us to start our new company: Mighty Paper. 

Help us bring these Heroic Girls to the young women you love.

Our research and design are complete, and we need your enthusiasm to get this scratch-off poster and tattoo pack manufactured and shipped.

We hope our Kickstarter community will be the first to get their hands on these, and we're so grateful for your support. 

Risks and challenges

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR KICKSTARTER ACCOUNT EMAIL IS THE ONE YOU CHECK EVERY DAY. THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT.

This is our sixth time running a poster project on Kickstarter and we're pleased to say we know what we're doing. The design, printing, packaging, and shipping all happen here in Wisconsin, and we've been shipping packages around the world for over five years.

As always, we'll try to minimize any challenges from the United States Postal Service. You'll receive a custom shipment notification email with a tracking link, and we will monitor your order to make sure everything goes according to plan but there is always a chance of mail system hiccups. If you don't get your poster for any reason, we'll ship you a replacement quickly.

When the campaign ends, you'll get a "Backer Survey" in your email (see all caps sentence above). The Backer Survey is how you'll give us your shipping address. The quicker you get that info back to us, the easier it'll be to get your packages to you.
