Valentine's Day Greeting Cards For That Geeky Science Lover
PUTTING OUR LIVES INTO SOCIAL OVER-DRIVE (OR... AT LEAST GETTING OUT OF NEUTRAL!)
About the Product
These Valentine’s will set any geeky heart aflutter! We have incorporated a number of disciplines including physics, molecular biology, statistics and of course, chemistry (the science of looove) into vintage-style Valentine’s for your nerdy loved ones. These cards and the materials we package/ship them with are eco-friendly! By backing this project, you are helping to launch a set of greeting cards that you just can’t find in stores. Cards designed by nerds, for nerds! The funding will primarily go towards two things:
1. Professional printing costs associated with the first run of cards.
2. Launching our website so we can continue to offer more cards for more occasions.
The cards will be printed as soon as the campaign is completed (estimated time for printing is 6-10 days) and every effort will be made to have these cards mailed immediately (especially for international locations that may have longer transit times) so you will receive them before Valentine’s Day (Feb 14, 2015).
Project Update: Jan 3, 2015
We are so excited that we have reached 200% our goal. Thank you so much to our backers so far! The campaign ends tomorrow (Sunday)! The cards were being printed last week and should be ready soon and all of our shipping materials have been ordered.
BONUS: To celebrate the surpassing of our goal, we are adding an extra 3’ of ribbon to the tiers that include the nerdy gift wrapping ribbon ($35, $55, $70 reward levels). So that means instead of only 6’, those backers will receive 9’. Note: this bonus applies to those tiers only.
We’ve done our research… great care was taken to source environmentally responsible materials, without compromising on card quality. After obsessing over many different paper, packaging and envelope samples, we have sourced all of our materials and we are ready to place the orders!
The cards measure 4 ¼”X 5 ½” (108 mm X 140 mm) and will be printed on 100% recycled & biodegradable material (see below for more details about the eco-friendly aspects of these cards).
Choose from the following 6 designs, or get them all in our gift pack! NOTES: These are only prototypes and there may be slight changes to the design for printing purposes. Final products will not be watermarked.
Design # 1: Statistically Significant Other:
Design #2: Essential Amino Acid
Design #3: Photon Excitation:
Design #4: PCR of Love:

We have taken careful consideration to source environmentally responsible materials for our products. The cards will be printed on 100% Recycled/Uncoated cardstock. The envelopes are Green Seal Certified and made from 100% recycled Post-Consumer Waste. The cards will be packaged in compostable cello bags that are made from plants and the shipping material will be made with recycled content as well!
Risks and challenges
We have all of the designs finalized and ready for print, so everything should be straight forward there.
Although we have carefully selected local, reputable printing companies and suppliers, our biggest risk is that delays with the printing, beyond our control, could lead to delays in shipping. As a result, we cannot 100% guarantee that the cards will arrive before Feb 14, 2015. Hopefully everything goes smoothly, and if there are any problems, we have several back-up printers and suppliers ready.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
