***Special Request, before it was even thought out to be a final finished project of a poetry book, was a way for me to make restaurant work more material, more fulfilling. On the job, I take customer orders using an iPad-based POS, their coffee orders and my poems are sent to an Epson TM-U220 two-color printer for preparation. The result is an object that resembles the image below. The first poem of the series was written on August 14, 2016.
After months of working, writing, and printing, I now have a collection of receipt paper poems, of which I would like to turn into a self-published art and poetry book. The costs of printing and shipping, as well as the prices for rewards, are: $173.11 for printing 45 copies, $34.99 for shipping the books to me, $46.20 for purchasing and mailing the rewards, and $25 to compensate for Kickstarter fees.
Risks and challenges
Given the moderate scope of the project and funding goal, there is little to no risk involved, lest the postal service loses my package.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
