About this project

UPDATE - Scroll down for Add On information!
UPDATE - International rates are more affordable with the "Economy" tile sets (See Reward levels and Add Ons for more into!)

UPDATE - We made an online interactive YouTube adventure that showcases the tiles in a fun way (Do not turn off the annotations): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RNoD-GMlLw
UPDATE - If we get funded, we will double side all non-metal tiles for free! (With metal, we cannot guarantee the back of the tiles will align properly when they're being cut)

Our goals?
1. Provide a wide variety of tiles
2. Provide an inexpensive tile based product
3. Create sets based on feedback
4. Increase the number of tiles per set as our funding grows

Timing:

Our Kickstarter will run until late August. We will need two weeks after it ends before Amazon releases payments, and for surveys to be filled out. It will then take two weeks for our printing company to produce the tiles. We also expect to be able to produce and cut the metal tiles within that time. This means that we plan to start shipping approximately one month from the end of the Kickstarter.

Kick It Forward: http://kickingitforward.org

Risks and challenges

We are working with a print shop to produce our standard tiles. It is difficult for them to make small runs and in order to have a large variety of designs we need to have an accommodatingly large order. We have structured our stretch goals around this so that we will have the financial ability to produce additional new sets as they are unlocked, and we do not expect any difficulty with producing the tiles.

Our metal tiles are difficult to cut economically. We do have a method of producing them and cutting them. The cutting process that we are committed to doing is a bit time consuming and we hope to get enough funding to make this process go more quickly and smoothly. To make sure that production and cutting do not delay the project we are only making a limited amount of metal sets.

While we have operated a business in Louisville for several years this will be our first time selling a major product instead of a service. We are working closely with our printers to ensure that we are fully capable of meeting our production and shipping goals. Our real challenge is letting people know that Mapping Tiles exist! If you want to see us meet our goal, please spread the word to anyone you think would like our ideas!
