Stretch Goal - $15,000 To Print In The USA

If you remember our risks and challenges below, you noted that we planned on doing offshore printing but would print in the USA if we exceeded our funding goal significantly enough. Thanks to you this goal is within reach so we are officially announcing the number: $15,000. 

Printing locally gives us better quality control over the final product, and could expedite the delivery of your books by up to 5 weeks. We know $15,000 is three times our initial goal, but we believe in this project and know that you do too. We can do this with your help!

Our Story

CursiveLogic is a patent-pending method that teaches cursive in a fraction of the time previously thought possible. On January 20, 2015, we launched our revolutionary new curriculum for children here on Kickstarter. Six hundred forty-nine Kickstarter backers brought that project to life. Since then, thousands of students have used CursiveLogic, and the workbook is now in its third printing.  During its inaugural year, the CursiveLogic curriculum was honored by the National Parenting Center, Homeschool Parent, and The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew.  

CursiveLogic has been featured on Time.com, PsychologyToday.com, and in PenWorld Magazine. 

But it’s not just kids who love CursiveLogic. Many of our “students” are grown-ups who want to learn cursive for the first time or who want to improve their handwriting. And there are others who simply love cursive and want to learn more about this unique method. We knew that we needed a product that reached out to this audience.  

Then we noticed the phenomenon that is adult coloring, and a perfect match was made. 

The Coloring Book

 The Art of CursiveLogic is a set of beautiful coloring pages that artfully incorporate cursive practice. Upon completion, each coloring sheet is a frame-worthy masterpiece with a hand-lettered, inspiring quotation. 

The Art of CursiveLogic starts off by introducing the user to the patent-pending CursiveLogic handwriting method. This method teaches the entire lowercase alphabet in four simple lessons that take only a few minutes each to complete. An adult who has never learned to write in cursive can easily master the system in a couple of evenings. An adult who simply needs a refresher will see results immediately.

The genius behind CursiveLogic is its shape-based approach. Although there are 26 letters in the alphabet, there are four shapes that make up the structure of every lowercase, cursive letter. Rather than teaching letters alphabetically, CursiveLogic groups the letters that share a common shape and teaches them as a connected string.

These four foundational shapes are also the inspiration for the designs in the coloring book. Our artist, Elena Zhivova, used these shapes to make an array of beautiful images. As you color the images, you reinforce the foundations of the cursive alphabet.  

Each image flows from an inspiring quotation that also appears in the design. Parts of some of the quotations are incorporated into the image itself. Other parts are hand-lettered, at first with guidance, around the image. The result is a piece of unique, inspiring art worthy of removing from the book and displaying in your home.

The Art of CursiveLogic is made for lovers of pen and ink. The pages, which measure 8.5" x 11", will be made of heavy paper to allow each artist to choose his or her favorite pens, fountain pens, pencils, or markers to complete the designs.  The book will provide 24 designs, along with an opportunity to trace and then practice writing each quotation before incorporating it into the design.

Any adult who values handwriting will enjoy this book – whether you already write in perfect, Spencerian script or whether you aspire to improve an illegible scrawl. The Art of CursiveLogic makes cursive as easy as relaxing and coloring.

Rewards

For those who love the art and intricacy of these designs, Elena Zhivova has hand colored and hand lettered three images.  These images are available as limited edition, 9" x 12" art prints that will be signed and numbered.

 Coloring Contest

Coloring Contest
Coloring Contest

 

We are proud to announce our first coloring contest at the Art of CursiveLogic. Our contest winner will receive $100 this Saturday 2/11/2017 delivered instantly via Facebook. By participating in this contest, you are helping get the word out about the first adult coloring book that teaches cursive handwriting. Without further ado, here are the contest rules:

1.       Each participant must print out and color the sheet from the link below the rules. 
2.       Each participant must post a picture or scan of the colored sheet in a comment to the post announcing the contest (the one that linked you here).
3.       The winner will be selected based on the following criteria – selection of colors, quality of filling, and # of likes to your colored image (# of likes will be minimally considered so go ahead and submit even at the last minute; be a good sport too and like your faves).

4.       The deadline for submissions will be Friday 2/10/2017 at Midnight CST

One winner will be selected, announced, and surprised by $100 delivered via Facebook pay. If you cannot receive Facebook pay for some reason, we will deliver it to you via snail mail or PayPal. You must be 18 or older to participate in this contest. If you are not old enough, get your parent or guardian to submit yours for you. All methods of coloring are permitted and quality of filling will be judged with consideration of the difficulty of the media (i.e. markers are different from colored pencils, we get that). GOOD LUCK!

*All contestants agree to give CursiveLogic LLC unrestricted use of the submission and your first name (we can show off your drawing, but we won’t DOX you). This contest is void where prohibited by law and governed exclusively by the laws of the State of Oklahoma. CursiveLogic reserves the right to remove any abusive or impolite comments. 

Risks and challenges

We have set a delivery date of May 2017 for the coloring book, but we hope to deliver it sooner. We have planned on printing offshore, but if we exceed our funding goal significantly enough to afford U.S. printing, that would expedite the process by as much as 5 weeks. The biggest risk is that those who love coloring and/or cursive will have to wait longer for The Art of CursiveLogic if we do not fund. This Kickstarter is all about giving those who believe in this product a chance to help it come out of the gate with a bang.
