Hi there! I'm Ryan, thanks for stopping by. So, I've wanted to bring the Tangram States design to life for a while now, but I've only ever printed it at home at small sizes. Now it's time to bring this colorful collection of shapes into the big leagues — at big sizes — by being professionally printed. I hope you'll join me on this poster adventure extravaganza! 

How the shapes got their states

These 24" x 36" posters will be offset printed on a luxurious Mohawk Superfine 80c Ultrawhite paper. They'll look great pinned to your wall, or perhaps adorning your solarium. Hang them up in your child's room to perhaps give them a head start on developing geographic prowess. 

That's not all though! 

As a way to commemorate this endeavor, we'll also be producing a limited edition run of screen printed posters too! Featuring five bright and punchy solid spot colors, these 18" x 24" posters will be screen printed on French Dur-O-Tone 100c Butcher White paper by the expert craftsmen at Mama's Sauce in lovely Orlando, Florida.

Here's a look at the limited edition color palette: 

If successful, project funds will be used for printing & fulfillment of Tangram States posters. Any extra funds will go towards taking my wife out to a nice dinner after she graciously assists me packing up rewards. (And hopefully to dreaming up the next cool poster project.)

Thanks so much for taking the time to consider this project. Every little bit helps and I am grateful for any level support you would be willing to lend to this project. As a token of thanks all donors of $3 of more will get access to digital Tangram States wallpapers which will be scaled to fit a myriad of desktop and mobile devices. 

Spiff up your devices with some neat wallpaper! All donors get 'em!

 Thanks everybody! 

Risks and challenges

Thankfully the Tangram States poster composition is already designed and ready to go! It will only need slight revisions to ready it for its new 24" x 36" print size. Likewise, the 18" x 24" screen printed version of the poster will also only need slight adjustments to be press ready.

If the project is lucky enough to get funded there's always a chance to be buried in shipping tubes and address labels when it's time for fulfillment. But that's what hard work and weekend Law & Order marathons were invented for.
