Beatnik Prints: Beautiful Trippy Brainfood

The goal of this campaign is to raise enough money to launch a full clothing line with patterns featuring Topographic Maps of the U.S., with the initial launch of three great items.

The initial designs available focus mainly on National Parks, America's best idea. There are also a few other locations available, but there are so many more locations yet to be printed, how to decide where to make the next map? That's where you can help!

If this campaign gets 10 backers from the same state, I will create a series of designs for that state! And who better to find out cool map locations from then some locals. So if you back this project, hit me up and tell me the cool locations I'm missing.

The more people who back this campaign, the more awesome new patterns will be made.

Once I raise enough funds from this project, I will be able to take my products to music and art festivals across the country as well as stock a permanent online storefront.

Beatnik Prints sources its material from the United States with the fabric coming from California (for the shirts and pants) and North Carolina (the headbands). Then everything is cut, dye sublimated and sewn in Denver, CO. The leftover scraps are set to Georgia where they're shredded and recycled as insulation.

This is just the first stage in a long list of potential creative awesomeness with Beatnik Prints, and you can brag that you helped the company in its early days. If this project speaks to you, please consider donating today, and whether you are able to donate or not, please tell your friends and family and anyone else who loves supporting local businesses, sporting awesome handmade apparel and looking at topographic maps.

Risks and challenges

The difficult aspects of this project revolve around creating full color clothing items, that produce the least amount of waste, while being produced in the USA, and still being cost effective.

To achieve this we have teamed up with an awesome Colorado company to cut, print, and sew all the products. In addition to that, a recycler for the fabric scraps produced has been found, and the extra odds and ends will be shredded and most likely used for insulation.

All these core values, Full Color Products, Local Production, and Sustainability add certain costs, But for non-essential products such as these it is important to stick to your morals while making the best product at the best price possible.
