About

(Lots of backers have been asking about getting more than 1 reward, and that is possible! Just email us with what you're interested in (clutchmov@gmail.com), and pay for the total amount of the multiple rewards when you check out.)

About Us

Clutch MOV is a local lifestyle magazine for the Mid-Ohio Valley, and we are growing! Currently our staff of 40+ writers, editors and photographers volunteer to publish at least three articles a week on our online magazine – www.clutchmov.com – featuring local people, places and events. We also produce two stunning physical magazines each year. We are passionate about promoting all of the great organizations, businesses, events, people and characteristics of our community.

For 2016, we want to develop a product line of locally focused goods that show our deep-rooted pride in our community, launch a webstore, host more community events, and develop a mobile app. To do this, we need YOUR help! We are asking YOU to help take Clutch MOV to the next level, so that we can amp up our community involvement and build up the creative economy of the Mid-Ohio Valley!

We will use our funds to:

  • Work with local designers to design and produce a line of quality, locally-focused products like t-shirts, mugs, postcards, and totebags

  • Develop a mobile app that makes our content easier to read on the fly

  • Create an online store to sell our products

  • Host more community events in 2016

  • Print Issue 03 and Issue 04 of our magazine

Our backer rewards offer a little taste of what’s to come, including posters, t-shirts, mugs, tote bags and workshops. In providing our rewards, we are already collaborating with local businesses and members of the community to bring something new to the table.

(Scroll on down for photos of some of our great rewards & community partners!)

The History

Sarah Arnold founded Clutch MOV in March of 2014 with the help of Mallory Greenham and Melanie Roby. Our small group has grown to now include more than 40 contributors who all share in creating content and hosting local events. So far, events have included a sustainable living fair, an InstaMeet, a letterpress printing workshop, a cocktail networking event, and a handful of community service projects, like bringing fresh-baked pastries to our local civil servants on 9/11 Day of Service.

We are not just a website, we are part of this community. We are not just promoting the Mid-Ohio Valley, we are actively and passionately trying to make it a better place.

Our Plan

Over the past year and a half, we have been developing our plans for the future of Clutch MOV. Our goal is to be able to sustain ourselves as we continue to create quality content and products for the Mid-Ohio Valley. We want to design and produce the product line to feature local artists and bring fresh, modern designs to our community and visitors. We want to launch a website to sell these products, as well as offer products in a storefront downtown. We want to launch an app to make our content easier to read on the fly, and if we raise enough funds, we want to incorporate a community calendar so that readers will be able to stay up-to-date on local events.

Profit generated from the product line would be used to compensate our amazing staff of writers and photographers for their work, as we continue to meet our mission of building community.

The Numbers

We believe in our mission and know that if our campaign is successful, we will have the capacity to accomplish so much more for years to come. This is a one-time campaign, but the results will be long-lasting for both Clutch MOV and the Mid-Ohio Valley.

  • Collaborate with local designers to create and produce a product line ($5,000)

  • Create a mobile app for Clutch MOV, including initial start-up fee and monthly fees for 2016 ($5,000)

  • Launch an ecommerce store designer by Holly Casto Creative ($1,500)

  • Produce all the awesome rewards for our supporters ($4,500)

  • Kickstarter’s fee – approximately 10%

We are overwhelmed by the talent and generosity in our community – so we’ve worked together to assemble a great collection of rewards! Check our “Updates” often to see images of new rewards as they are released, and the story behind them.
