Risks and challenges
I am still researching, but it looks like to make this happen all proper and whatnot I am going to need some serious artistic help. The problem is with my creativity and my art skills. I have neither. While my kid probably doesn't care that everything is made with stencils and stamps and stickers, to do this right I am going to need an artist/ illustrator. To top it all off I am almost completely colorblind. Without my friend Ken this would not have been possible for me to even know what works and what doesn't.
I am going to need some decent equipment. Either some sort of press or a printer that can use UV inks. (Update: I have found the printer, and can now order specialty cartridges that allow me to print UV ink!) That gets pricey, but should easily pay for itself if I get some good backing.
I have ordered a ton of different UV flashlights, led keychains, penlights, and just a pile of different UV LEDS of different wavelengths.
I need to test out every wavelength and power, with every type of ink, on many types of paper to find out what works best. Luckily I've got a great research base to build on.
I've made many prototype pages of the book, but need the funding to make it into an actual book and mass produce.
I want to say 30 days to fund my dream. Another 30 days to finalize dedicated development. 30 final days to start pumping them out.
