About

THE PROJECT

InkWorks is helping celebrate the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking game MYST™  with custom nail wraps! 

Design & production will be done by world-famous nerd manicure experts Espionage Cosmetics! Several of the InkWorks team are dedicated Espionage fans, and being able to collaborate with them on this limited edition product is more exciting than licking a Riven frog.

THE WRAPS

 We're still in the prototype stages, but here are some of the ideas-

Let's state that again, just so people are clear- THESE MAY NOT BE THE FINAL DESIGNS. These are concept art.

We'll keep our backers updated with the design process, and we welcome community feedback!

Espionage nail wraps are high-quality, cruelty free, vegan products that feature bright, bold colors, and added perks like glow in the dark surprises and glitter! A Washington state company, they've been supporting nerd fandom and fashion for almost a decade.  Visit them at Espionage Cosmetics.

 THE GOAL

This is a "no bells and whistles" campaign to raise the funds needed for a minimum custom order with Espionage. The reward tiers are based on reaching that goal, with wraps being the only major physical reward. In order to make sure we reach the minimum order amount and make sure we have the funds to ship rewards, shipping will be billed separately in the campaign manager, after the Kickstarter has ended.  

We anticipate that US Shipping will be between $2 and $10 shipping, and international shipping will be based on the country being shipped to.

 THE REWARDS

 MYST™ Nail Wraps:

22 MYST themed nail wraps, with special accents.

#MYST25 Artcard:

5x7 glossy print designed by InkWorks' art director, Eleri Hamilton.

#MYST25 Sticker:

3 inch vinyl, weather resistant sticker featuring a mandala by Mandala Mantis.

Espionage Mystery Wraps:

One of Espionage's 22-wrap designs, completely at random!

SPECIFICS

 Does Cyan know about this? 

Yes! InkWorks is collaborating with Cyan on the MYST™ Exhibit at this year's GeekGirlCon in Seattle, WA, and the nail wraps have been part of the planning.  However, this project is not maintained or managed by Cyan, Inc., and they are not responsible in full or part for the content or fulfillment. So don't pester them ;)

Does Espionage Cosmetics know about this?

     Yes, a member of the Espionage Glitter Army reviewed this campaign before it went live. Like Cyan, Espionage is not involved in the management of this Kickstarter, and their only responsibility in fulfillment is manufacturing. 

Will there be Stretch Goals? 

     Because our core goal is the minimum order quantity, no stretch goals are planned at this time- that may change!

Will these be available for sale after the Kickstarter?

We have a minimum quantity of wraps we need to order, and we will order more if needed for fulfillment. If there are wraps available after Kickstarter fulfillment, we hope to have them available online. They will NOT be available for purchase from Espionage Cosmetics, and once they're gone, they're gone!

Do you know what you are getting into?

InkWorks is the publisher of Unwritten: Adventures in the Ages of MYST & Beyond; our 2013 Kickstarter was over 700% funded, with over 500 backers and multiple physical rewards. This is much less daunting.

Risks and challenges

Risks: Delays in product design, manufacturing, shipping.
Solution: Espionage Cosmetics has years of experience designing and delivering product; we are confident that working with them will be a drama-free process. If there are any delays, we intend to communicate clearly with our backers about where we are, and what they can expect.
