Important Update: The cards are produced! Check it out! I was interviewed on FOX 31 Colorado's "Everyday" Show.
"A" doesn't have to be for "Apple".
Who? Hi! I'm Susan and I've created ABC flash cards that are especially for boys (even though girls will love them too). I am the proud mother of two amazing children and have worked over the last 15 years as an elementary school teacher and educational consultant. When my son was three years old, I was trying to work with him on his letters. All the flash cards available were boring and didn't hold his attention. I wanted to create something that would make recognizing, learning and remembering ABC's fun. This is when I started thinking about what held a boy's attention and made them laugh. The topic that stood out the most was anything and everything to do with potty humor. This discovery was what ignited the idea for Alpha Cards.
What? Alpha Cards have silly words with hilarious illustrations. They appeal to a boy's sense of humor. The gross factor makes them that much more memorable! Alpha Cards is the first of many products that I hope to create through my new endeavor, He's All Boy. He's All Boy will be the brand that will appeal to boys and make them laugh out loud as they learn.
Why? I need your help, that's why I'm here! The cards and packaging are designed. My newly formed company, He's All Boy, has been created. Now I'm ready for the first round of production. The money raised through Kickstarter will allow me to pay for the production of the first sets of Alpha Cards. I am bubbling over with excitement as I take each step closer to this idea becoming a reality. Thank you (in advance) for becoming a part of this incredible journey.
How? Here is a sneak peak at the process I went through trying to pick out the perfect combination of words for each letter as well as working with an illustrator on capturing just the right emotion...
With the help of my husband, a graphic designer, I've been able to secure printers that offer the highest quality production. The cards are 4.25" x 6" and are offset printed in full color on a thick 16pt card stock with a glossy finish. Best of all, they are MADE IN THE USA!!
This is the final box design that will be printed that my amazing husband designed for this project...
I also have worked on some other fun extensions of Alpha Cards for the rewards including this fun matching game to play with your kids...
Update: Due to numerous requests, I've added the option to ship to Canada.
Please add the following for additional shipping costs:
Add $10 to any pledge $29 or less
Add $20 to any pledge $30 or more

Risks and challenges
Once the money is raised I will be able to start production (yeah!!) The only delay in the rewards reaching your hands would be if the printers have a busy schedule. Other than that I see no delay!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
