To Tie or Not To Tie...

Hello Gracious Backers + Supporters!

HAPPY 2013!! Hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's! We have just under a week left to go and are so happy to see that our project funding is still going strong! So we thought for the final days we should add a stretch goal to see if we can get this project funded up to $15,000!

Since this project began, we have received numerous emails from people interested in self-tied bow ties, as opposed to the pre-tied ones we currently offer. So we thought, if we can get another $5000 in funding, we would LOVE to offer a line of traditional bow ties! If you think this sounds like a good idea, please send us a note and tell us — would you like to see solid color bow ties or more patterns? Any specifics in terms of color and style are welcome as well!

AND...if we reach $15,000 we want to offer an addition to your rewards because obviously we would never be able to reach that without your support! So, if we get to our new goal then every backer of our project will also receive an exclusive Grunion Run trucker hat (seen below on Kevin), produced solely for Kickstarter supporters.

Thank you again for helping us reach our initial funding goal! We are so excited to get your rewards out to's to a great start to the New Year!

Yun + Kevin xx

      Oh, not so enthusiastic about the trucker hat, though. Maybe you could do handkerchiefs?

      Yes, wonderful! Add a pledge level for this and I will up my pledge!

      Love this idea! Hope you make the stretch goal! I'd be happy with either solids or patterns. I like the style of the pre-tied ones you have, so similar in self-tie would be cool.
