Help us launch Clowns & Crowns first line of printed paper products!
About Clowns & Crowns
Clowns & Crowns is a family-run studio project, which currently consists of personalized illustrations and various paper products... greeting cards, postcards, notebooks, bookmarks and inspirational cards. All the products are handmade with a lot of love for small details! All the illustrations are created on a white Papyrus paper, 110 grams. The paper products are made from Canson paper with a delicate texture, 300 grams. The colors used are permanent twin-tip Pro Markers, Black Pilot Pens 0.4 and Gold Pigment Ink Pens. The finishing touches for bindings are done with gold-trimmed synthetic fabrics.
- The printed products will be slightly different from the handmade products as digital printing uses gold Pantone - whilst gold pigment ink is brighter and more glittery.
- The gold trimmed fabric is used on a limited handmade edition - the printed version will include a gold colored stripe.
We are now taking all the handmade samples to print...
This is where you come in...
In order to get them printed, a minimum order needs to be placed for each design, and our goal of 3,200 Pounds is the break even point that will cover the expenses for the graphic design, materials and prints.
The printed line will give us the chance to keep up with the orders and
of course it will also allow us to reach more people as we will have more stock to offer.
We do intend to keep limited editions of handmade illustrations and products because we're old-fashioned and romantic and want to give you original rewards!
- The framed illustrations come in a golden wooden frame .
- The inspirational cards are packed in an illustrated golden cardboard box.
- The gifts will be carefully packed and ready to send in a firm package.
- The handmade greeting cards can be ordered for special occasions. Contact me after the project successfully ends and let me know the details.
The whole video was filmed with a Nokia Experia mobile phone.
We hope you got a feel for what we do and decide to play a part in this exciting journey with us!
Risks and challenges
Probably the biggest challenge of this project has been working on hardly any sleep whilst being a full time mum for a small baby girl! This will hopefully change soon, as she gets older - we will sleep better...
The other main challenge has already been accomplished with over a hundred different designs completed and we have hand-picked a selected few to go to print. All it needs now is your help to take it there! Everything and everyone is ready to go and once we reach the funding goal, we can commence with the graphic design and branding and head straight for the printers.
The only risk or challenge we foresee is a matter of time. The delivery date for all the rewards have been set in December, which should arrive just in time for the gift-giving month. The time frame is not that long so it doesn't leave us much room for mistakes, but our printing company and graphic designer are reliable and professional, so we are positive that everything will go smoothly in that department.
Thank you for your kind pledges and taking the time to check out our project!
