What is a Foldagram?
Foldagram combines a message and a picture into a self-standing unit that can also be folded into an envelope. The power of the internet is amazing, and it makes communication fast and easy. But don't you miss the nostalgia of walking to the mailbox and finding a personal letter? Foldagram brings that memory back. We make it easy to create one as well, since all you have to do is enter the information online, and we do all the work. Finally, whoever receives it will love that it can stand on its own!
What is this project?
The purpose of this Kickstarter is to introduce the Foldagram in a fun and unique way. The internet might be the best way to share photos and messages quickly, but sending a real letter has a stronger impact. This project is all about sharing art and sending lasting mementos.
We are going to create a gallery of photos from a close friend's photography (see a sample HERE, final gallery coming soon!). Everyone who pledges enough for a Foldagram can pick one of these images to send wherever they want. If you would rather simply create and send your own Foldagram, just look for the "custom" pledge levels.
How will the funds be used?
The funds will purchase the equipment we need to deliver Foldagrams to our Kickstarter supporters! Since we currently print and cut every sheet by hand, we'll updgrade our process to accomodate this larger audience. Also, the funds raised from Kickstarter will allow us to purchase the materials we need for everyone's Foldagram.
More importantly though, this campaign helps us find that audience! Even if you don’t want to pledge enough for a Foldagram right now, please put in a dollar or go to the website and sign up for updates. We want feedback, comments, and criticism!
Who should use Foldagram?
There are many, fantastic ways to make Foldagram work for you. Here is a quick outline of the unique ideas we’ve thought of so far!
When you’re traveling, you always want to share the new sights with people back home. Sometimes you find great postcards, sometimes…you don’t. It can also be hard to find a Post Office. You can make a Foldagram from anywhere in the world as long as you can get online, and it will always be mailed from the same place: Colorado, USA. Plus, it’s even better than a postcard! Not only can it be your custom photo, but your friends or family can easily display the scene from your trip.
Since Foldagrams are printed in high, photo quality on a thick card stock, they are a great way to advertise the arts. Sending Foldagrams can raise a lot of interest in gallery openings, film premieres, paintings or photography. When people receive the Foldagram they’ll be able to display it in their home, so they’ll always be reminded of your work!
Making a life away from home and loved ones can be difficult. Foldagram makes it easy to stay in touch in a unique way! Although nothing beats a handwritten letter, Foldagram makes it easy to send a photo and message. That way, you can send something personal to those far away. Since Foldagram can stand on its own, they can easily display every message you send. Instead of taking time to return a letter, they’ll be able to send Foldagrams as well.
If you’re hosting a big party, having a baby, or planning a life-changing event, there’s a good chance you want to inform everyone you know. Foldagram provides an easy method of sending out a bulk message. The more you buy, the cheaper they get! Your recipients won’t forget the date since they’ll have a standing reminder on their counter!
There are so many scenarios to send someone a custom, self-standing mailer. After a great night with friends, send a Foldagram with the best photo so no one forgets the evening. Send your family fun updates from college. Remind people of your anniversary, or deliver a birthday greeting.
Foldagram is a great idea in any situation. Since you click, we send, and they fold, it couldn't be easier. Please take the time to comment, or make a pledge. Every dollar counts, we really appreciate your support.
Thank you, Foldagram loves you.
