What is the Pride and Prejudice Bookmark Pack
Based on the success of our “Jane Austen" heroines bookmarks to color, Magnetic Past is hoping to launch a “Pride & Prejudice Bookmark Pack” containing 8 double-sided bookmarks of characters from the story.
Bookmarks will be printed on 14pt premium paper and are perfect for coloring with pencils, wax crayons or even felt pens.
With illustrations on both sides, you will get double the coloring fun!
- Bookmarks measure 2.75"x8.5" and will be packed in a padded envelop small enough (10"x6") to fit in most mailbox/mail slots, so your packet will be delivered even if you are not home.
These bookmarks will provide several hours of fun coloring, an opportunity to discover new characters face-to-face if you are new to Jane Austen, or simply the pleasure of reacquainting yourself with old literary friends.
Who is the Pack for?
The Pride & Prejudice Pack is perfect for anyone who loves Jane Austen, reading English Literature, coloring, simply receiving something fun in the mail and of course makes a great gift for those who have yet to discover the works and universe of Jane Austen.
Proposed Character bookmarks
-Mr Bennet/Mrs. Bennet*
-Mr. Collins/Lady Catherine de Bourgh*
[*Characters share a bookmark, one on either side]
Why are we campaigning?
The wonderful print shop we use has a minimum of 100 units per design.
In order to bring this project to life, we need to raise enough to print 8 bookmarks x 100 ==> 800 bookmarks.
Projected Financial Goal $1,400
What will the amount cover?
- Printing 8 sets of 100 bookmarks to color-- 800 bookmarks
- Packing materials for a 100 packs: a 9x6 in padded envelop that will protect the bookmarks but fit in most mailboxes and through most mail-slots. That way, even if you are not home, your package will be delivered.
- Postage for 100 packs (domestic & international)
- Cost for the different rewards and postage such as greeting card to color, sticker and collector cards, hardcover journal all will be linked to the theme.
- Note: All bookmarks and rewards are Made in America.
- Kickstarter fees.
Note: All bookmarks and rewards are Made in America.
The funds raised will not cover the time involved in creating the illustrations (up to 16 different drawings), nor the time spent packing and shipping those 100 packs. However, this is to gauge if people are interested in the “bookmark pack” concept.
If this project works
If this project proves popular, we will consider setting up a subscription service. Future packs could be based on Jane Austen's other novels, the plays of William Shakespeare, works by Charles Dickens, the Bronte sisters, Walter Scott, etc - the possibilities are endless!
Our only requirement is simple: the literary work must exist in the public domain.
Example of reward for $100 pledge.

Risks and challenges
Other than not being able to raise the necessary funds, no foreseeable issues, as this type of product creation is routinely done for Magnetic Past.
We already have bookmarks of Elizabeth and Darcy that are sold through our store though it is likely a new Elizabeth (and possibly a new Mr. Darcy) will be created.
All other characters remain to be illustrated.
If the project gets funded, it will take several weeks to create the illustrations. Once the illustrations are ready, both bookmarks and the rewards are printed by outside print shops so it all boils down to a matter of time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
