V15 : Climbing Badges.
As a keen climber I find it difficult to find pin badges and other items that represent the sport so I've decided to make my own, creating four designs that all represent a different key aspect of climbing.
Each badge will be handmade by myself, with the designs created using Adobe suite and then printed onto high quality paper to use on the badges. The four designs all feature a piece of climbing equipment, A carabiner, eight knot, pair of climbing shoes and a person climbing.
After completing my research I felt that button badges would be the best for this project, as they are stronger and more hard wearing than enamel badges. Button badges are also much less likely to fall off or get lost compared to the butterfly clasps found on other badges.
The prototypes of the badges were successful, showing the designs clearly and being the size I wanted. If the project is fully funded the deigns will be finished to a much higher standard and will be printed on a higher-quality metallic gloss paper.
Stretch Goal: £80
If we can reach the stretch goal of £80 I will be designing and making a packaging/backing for the button badges which will fit in with the climbing theme.
Thank's for your support!
Risks and challenges
The main challenge for this kickstarter would be the size of the target audience, potentially not being a large enough audience to create a successful outcome to this project.
The second challenge would be the postage time, with me doing my best to send them out on time but potentially taking longer to reach further destinations around the world.
