We are Leo and Stephan. Artist, toy maker and the two pillars of Papermechanic, a product design company that specializes in toy production.
After working on projects ranging from large size statue, theme park ride to collectibles; we decided that it was time to come with our own project where we team up with talented artists to bring their designs to life.
For our first project we're teaming up with artist Hannah Churn to bring to life her Cheeseburger cat design. Originally based off of her real cat, she completed a Kickstarter turning the design into enamel pins.
With your help, we want to bring this project to life!
We originally made a 3D model after seeing Hannah's Kickstarter. The Cheeseburger Cat was such a fun idea to turn into a plush. We've been in contact with the manufacture and after some back and forth we got a prototype we're super pleased with.
This plush is professionally made, some more details:
- Material made of Velboa and Cotton
- 4 inches (tall) x 5.5 inches (long) x 3.5 inches (wide)
- Stands on four legs
- Pur-fect handheld burger size!
The manufacture that we're working with requires a minimum order of 3,000 plush. With that amount, we're able to keep our order costs low, but it still costs a lot to order everything. The other rewards are either low cost to print, or donated by Hannah from her previous Kickstarter, again keeping our cost low, just for the plush. Here's a breakdown of our cost for this Kickstarter:

Risks and challenges
While this is our first Kickstarter, we do have experience with the toy making industry. We've spent time finding the right manufacturer that meets our standards.
There is still unforeseen issues that can happen, such as a delay in the manufacture, or a delay in shipping.
If there is any delay in the process we will be sure to keep open communication with you the backer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
