About

Development of Unique Affordable Stained Glass Decals 

(Phase 1 - Design Prototypes to develop Portfolio of Stained Glass Product line-up) 

The initial prototype of creating a quality, affordable simulated "Stained Glass" Medium that incorporates same stunning colors for consumers was initiated in the mid 90's. Results exceeded "Peace Wreath" (photo below). The product, concept and development of further designs has been shelved since. I now have the desire and time to further develop a complete line of different captivating, colorful, tasteful designs.

Since, I have experimented with different materials, plastics and other mediums and now have created an unique mass production printing process that is capable of producing the most beautiful vibrant colors ever and "Art" for Commercial and Branding purposes and applications. 

The "Canada150" Prototypes project (featured as our video) produced vast improvements of technically enhancing the printing process and increased intensity of the colors.(See above video).The advancement inspired confidence that we can now mass produce and turn the most intricate colorful piece of Art into an extremely colorful Stained Glass piece at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. 

Our unique printing process is Non-Digital, that allows us to produce the most brilliant colors. We actually uniquely put the colors right into the reusable plastic as compared to just printing on it, this process adds significantly to durability and fade resistance. Past products have shown no real fading of colors after over 12 years on a south facing window. Our colors, quality and durability differentiate the initial products as different, better and special. 

Prototype Designs or Similar Rewards:

Below are initial examples of the Prototypes or similar to be created and produced. The size will be 19" by 19" and be multi-colored to showcase the quality and beauty. These removable/reusable decals take seconds to apply to any window to instantly brighten up any room.

According to a survey in Art Business Today, these were the top 10 best-selling subjects for paintings in the UK: 

  • Traditional landscapes Local views 
  • Modern or semi-abstract landscapes 
  • Abstracts 
  • Dogs 
  • Figure studies (excluding nudes) 
  • Seascapes, 
  • Harbour, and beach scenes 
  • Wildlife 
  • Impressionistic landscapes 
  • Nudes

We are confident that once you apply your brilliant prototype reward piece on a window your friends and loved ones will appreciate it's beauty and desire one.

Why?

Now with advanced Printing Technologies that produces Quality which we consider "Art". We are now ready to produce new extremely colorful  Stained Glass Designs that will have mass appeal. That is why we are asking for your generous assistance to "Kick-Start" the production process that includes Artists, creative design, artwork, materials and other production related costs to start producing finished prototype(s) of a new product line portfolio of the most beautiful simulated Stained Glass that all can enjoy and afford.

Phase 2 - Commercialization.

Once Phase 1 is complete we will have physical samples (rewards) that  will allow and "KICKSTART" commercialization. These samples will allow us to photograph their glowing effects and start to promote them with a catchy website online strategy and store. As mentioned, the importance of completing Phase 1 to showcase the products true beauty and quality is imperative. Phase 1 will be stretching the Planet's known printing capabilities to its limits.

This is my first Project offer on this platform. When Phase 1 is successful in raising the monies on this platform, we will keep all "Backers" informed of our progress until completed in September 2018. This is an opportunity to brighten up the world with transforming Art that will uplift consumers and elevate their environments to its highest potentials. Truly exciting, the endless opportunities. 

Why Simulated Stained Glass?

I have been fascinated with the beauty of Art since an early age, especially "Stained Glass" and how its vibrant jewel like colors resonated and always uplifted me mentally, physically and spiritually. Not sure why? 

I do believe part of it is the special relationship between sunlight (light) and Stained Glass (colors), it just seems to elevates everything to its highest potential.

This is a wonderful video that  highlights their glorious relationships.

I do not have any rights to this video, but it is so special that I wanted to share it and acknowledge the creators..director "Colin Winterbottom".

Take a quick uplifting photo tour of some of the most fantastic famous Stained Glass windows across the globe, from medieval masterpieces of all cultures and religions to contemporary creations. 

While the dazzling pieces above drastically range in scale and style, each one possesses the ability to transform an earthly site into a transcendent kaleidoscope of colors.

We are asking for your support to successfully complete Phase 1 and hopefully be an inspired supporter of Phase 2 the "Commercialization" of beautiful affordable Art that brings everything to it's highest potential. 

Risks and challenges

We have taken the time to brainstorm on mitigating risks for "Phase 1" of this experimental project utilizing the "SWIFT" Technique, the Structured “What-if” Technique. We feel confident that we have addressed the main common risks such as the costs, scheduling and performance associated both internal and external. We also are confident that the end results will exceed all expectations while gifting more knowledge and ideas.

This is our first time sharing a project on "Kickstarter" and we are excited to get started once project funds are achieved. Our intentions are pure and our backers will become contacts/friends. For us it is a win win for all.
