We are Aimee (Mint Cake Club) and Anna (Ted & Kip) and we are two easily excitable creative types who love colour, fun and all things ugly-cute. We are both mothers to awesome mini beasts, indie business owners and tea lovers.

Feel free to check us out. You can see what we are up to on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and find our stores on Etsy.com.

Our aim is to print three of Ted & Kip’s quirky, colourful illustrations onto super soft 95% Cotton 5% Elastane jersey fabric and make it into Mint Cake Club's signature baby / kids leggings, skinny dungarees, bibs and headbands.

RECENTLY ADDED REWARDS:

You can now also pledge for a personalised A4 name print! There are three different print designs available, featuring exclusive characters from the campaign. These can be customised with any name you wish. After the campaign ends the prints will be individually handwritten by Anna in her studio and printed onto luxury fine art paper. Each print is also embossed and signed to show that it is a Ted & Kip original artwork.

However much you decide to pledge, your money won't leave your hands until the project ends. Pledge now - Pay later!

If we reach our funding goal, we will be able to purchase 10 metres of each print fabric, meaning we can get the bulk discount from the small, UK based fabric printers.

We will also be able to print the note cards for the rewards, labels and stickers for packaging. 

We are all about keeping things small, using fellow small businesses and generally spreading the love.

We have SMASHED through our 1st stretch goal of £1000!

We can now reveal the unlocked 4th fabric design for you to choose from... 80's retro boombox beasts!

You will now have the impossible task of choosing which of the 4 designs you would like. Can't decide? Why not pledge for another set too?!

We will reveal a 5th awesome fabric if we reach our 2nd stretch goal of £2000.

Risks and challenges

Possible challenges with this project? We are both hard working mothers with young kids, so you never know what is going to crop up. The expectation from the printers is a 6-8 week turn around, but if they are busy this may delay things slightly. We are keeping this project small and under a very tight rein. We will be 100% transparent with any delays to production which may impact the delivery dates.
