About

Track and Field is entering a renaissance in the professionalization of our sport. Athletes are placing a hand in the monetization of the sole proprietor while corporations and governing bodies are supporting the changes taking place. Between endorsements giving athletes the opportunity to grow their brand or performance incentives through governing bodies, the athlete has more financial opportunities, now than ever.

A variance between Track & Field and other professional sports can be found in franchising and merchandising. Monetization is a method of legitimizing and stimulating the economy within that culture, often conducted by a third party outside of the culture. If we look back at the inception of our sport, monetization was not a part of the creation of the culture. Evidence can be found in the formerly long standing, amateur status requirement for participation in The Olympic Games.

This is an opportunity to keep monetization within running culture by keeping costs within our sport. Proceeds are split between the athletes and the photographers. 

What we are offering are vinyl wall cutouts under the moniker "Wallstrides".These cutouts  come in stunning color using eco-friendly, six-color, wide-format digital printers and precision laser cutters for smooth contour cutting of images. They are reusable up to five times on indoor, flat, smooth, and painted surfaces. With durability in mind, Wallstrides are UV, water and scratch resistant.

BREAKDOWN OF COST

(based on the purchase of a mini cutout)

MANUFACTURING 

We have worked closely with our manufacturer to bring you the lowest possible price for the highest possible quality.

ATHLETE

10 dollars of each sale goes directly to the athlete. This is a great opportunity to directly support your favorite athlete moving forward in an Olympic year.

PHOTOGRAPHER

We have to support the people who make your favorite athletes look so darn awesome! 10 dollars of each print goes to the photographer of that print.

CAMPAIGN FEES

A lot of work goes into putting a campaign together, wether it's organizing, sourcing materials, shipping products, or just plain making the whole thing happen. The people that make that happen earn a 5 dollar cut of each sale.

KICKSTARTER FEES

Last, but not least, Kickstarter. Without the platform that they offer, none of this would be possible. For everything that they offer us, they ask for a fee that equates to 4 dollars per sale. A steal if you ask us!

This is a great opportunity for you to support your favorite athlete, while getting some great decor for your Track Shack.

Risks and challenges

We're pleased to say that there are no challenges! Well... they have already been overcome. We have recruited athletes, we have hosted photoshoots, and we have even printed prototypes of the final product.
