STRETCH GOAL #2

If we hit $850 every backer will get a link to a FREE 640x1136 pixel mobile device wallpaper of the classic monster of their choice!

Here's an example of the Dracula mobile device wallpaper:

$750 STRETCH GOAL - Successful

Every backer will get a link to a FREE 1920x1080 pixel desktop wallpaper download of the classic monster of their choice!

Here's an example of Dracula desktop wallpaper:

In this age of computer-generated imagery (CGI) it is unusual to watch a movie with absolutely no computer effects. Universal Studios made horror movies from 1923 through the 1950's starring original monsters using only makeup and costumes. These movie monsters have attracted millions of fans around the world for decades.

To pay tribute to these monsters I created 8 posters, plus 4 bonus posters featuring other classic movie monsters. That's a total of 12 classic monster posters only available exclusively through Kickstarter!

These posters will be reproduced in full-color and printed on high quality paper. Two sizes will be available (depending on pledge), 8.5"x 11" and 17"x 22".

With your help I'll secure the funds to purchase an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 large-format printer which will allow me to print Giclée prints of my original poster designs.

Perfect to decorate your home theater!

Risks and challenges

There are risks and challenges with every project that can occur outside of my control no matter how much planning I do. Issues can arise that involve shipping, production, and other unknowns such as natural disasters.

I cannot promise that my project will be flawless but I can say, that if necessary, I am prepared to tackle any obstacle that comes my way by keeping my backers informed while I work on an effective solution.

Thank you for your support!
