They say that the relationship between an artist and their muse is what drives their creativity. Meet my muse, a little miki dog named Sadie. She is a 24/7-365 day muse that could fill a calendar. And that is precisely the project we are hoping to create. A calendar of digitally manipulated images with inspirational quotes brought to you SadieMiki the dog muse.
That's where we need your help, to get this calendar professionally printed and in your hands. The calendar is 11x8.5 closed and 11x17 when opened hanging on your wall.
About the Calendar
The calendar will feature 12 months of @sadiemiki inspirational musing art quotes designed for the year 2018. An extra bonus page of Sadie’s favorite bone recipe and kitchen measuring cheat sheet is included in the pages of this calendar.
The calendar will be professionally printed by a local print house in California. The entire calendar (28 pages) will be printed on cover weight, 100# for the cover and 80# for the inside pages. This will be printed on a 40" press with pencil aqueous coating (aka AQ)* to easily write on. It will also include a small hole drill for hanging up.
Each calendar will be shrink wrapped to keep it in pristine condition until you open it.
* Aqueous Coating (aka AQ) is an environmentally friendly water-based coating applied to your printed piece. It’s applied on press during the printing process and has two purposes. 1. It protects the piece against scuffing. 2. It aids in the drying of the printed pieces, which allows for bindery and finishing functions to be done more quickly. Size: 11”x8.5” (215.9mm x 279.4mm)
If we make 10% over the goal there will be an extra SURPRISE reward for the Calendar Champions, Calendar Buddies, Star of the Show and VIP consisting of 5 - 5x7 Sadie Happy Affirmation blank note cards.
All images will be different than the calendar.
All the pages are designed, proofed and ready for print, all we need is your help to meet the Kickstarter goal of $7000.00 to start the presses. If we get the funding we will upload images of the calendar run so everyone can see the press process. Ink on paper and finishing is an exciting process that we want to share with you. The process will take 10 business days for press 2 business days for drying 3 business days for finishing (cutting, scoring etc)
Shipping and Packing
Because Sadie and her family will be packing and shipping these, we can assure you that the package will be well packed, SadieMiki is the inspector and she will not give her paw of approval without precise packaging.
Risks and challenges
To minimize risks, we have chosen a print house that we have worked with for over 15 years and know them to be of high quality and reliable. A full service commercial printer serving clients nationwide.
The only foreseen risks are print production time delays for some unseen glitch which is not likely but if so would only be 3-5 days. Or the postal workers go on a massive strike which I believe has not happened since 1970 so I think we are all good to go. And if perchance the postal service does decide to go on strike I am sure I can find some fairy dust and carrier pigeons. (Just kidding)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
