About this project
The Club of Odd Volumes is a textile printing company based in Melbourne, Australia.
We provide custom printing for artists and an online shop for both our own designs and also a range of 20 artists who we rotate every 6 months – The Odd Collective.
We are limited by print size here in Melbourne, but have wanted to break into the bedding industry for some time. We love the idea of crazy, full patterned, digitally printed bed sheets. Not just polka dots and stripes, but photos and amazing artwork.
Producing these offshore requires some pretty big minimums so we have teamed up with two of our amazing Odd Collective artists to offer you the chance to pre-order through crowd funding.
Materials – The bedding sets are 100% cotton, 300 thread count. Beautiful, bright, luxury photo quality prints.
All additional homewares used in the styling of these photos are available online at www.theclubofoddvolumes.com
Note - Some photos shown in this project are styled mock-ups. The Emerald Garden leaf design is an accurate sample.
Do we offer Duvet covers too or just sheets? At this stage we are working on bedding sheet sets only. Single, Queen and King sets including a fitted sheet, top sheet and pillowcases available to purchase. But it is definitely on the cards for future projects.
As the bedding is our most ambitious project to date, we are turning to crowd funding to help us gather pre-orders to help with full production. Our goal is high to reach minimums and we did not want to cut costs on quality.
We need to hit our goal of $35,000AUD in order to progress the bedding to production.
In order to help us achieve this goal we are offering you some great backer rewards with a few bonuses to say thanks for helping us make this happen.
We are currently targeting early November 2014 for delivery of the bedding to our backers. Just in time for Xmas! Free postage within Australia. Please add recommended costs for International Shipping.
The Club of Odd Volumes
Started in 2012, the Club not only prints textiles for artists, but produce our own designs onto homewares and apparel. The Gem Collection is our newest photographic range including Emerald Garden and Sapphire Ocean. The Cat collection has been one of the most popular designs from day one, so it has been adapted to a life size version for all the cat lovers out there.
Furry Little Peach
Sha'an d'Anthes is Furry Little Peach, an artist, illustrator and designer living and working in Sydney, Australia. This little peach has been drawing since forever - as soon as she could hold a pencil - but it wasn't until she discovered her love for watercolours and ink at seventeen did she start to create both obsessively and religiously. Constantly inspired by the world around her, and especially by nature, Furry Little Peach's work acts as a window to the magical world in her mind.
Yoko Honda is a Japanese artist bringing the disco era back to life. With her bright youthful graphics we are transported back to the 80’s. The bedding pattern still has a strong modern punch that simultaneously exaggerates the old-school vibes, pulling at the heart strings of those who long for the lost era of disco pool parties.
We are super excited to be launching more of Furry little peach and Yoko’s work onto our range of in-house printed textiles available September 1.

Risks and challenges
Finding this supplier was no easy task. Over the past 6 months we have dealt with many companies to find the right one.
Large bedding is usually printed in plate separations (like screen printing on a way bigger scale) but we wanted full colour photographic quality prints. Very few people offer this service and at this size for a reasonable price. (We were getting quotes for $600US per set just in production costs)
After a few failed attempts and many late night Skype calls, we found the right people for the job. Amazing print quality onto luxury fabric.
Once successfully funded we will be working very closely with the offshore production team. We are confident in their quality and also their fast and professional service to get the job done on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
