About this project
The right words can solve any conflict.
Passive Aggressive Notepads are designed for those words.
BOOST OFFICE MORALE:
Tower of dirty coffee mugs left in the sink?
Stack of emails forgotten in the printer tray?
Empty take out containers stinking up the conference room?
Take a memo: "You're all slobs."
HANDY TO HAVE AT HOME:
Do the drunks next door think that yelling while peeing off their porch keeps the party rocking into the wee hours?
Does it sound like your upstairs neighbor puts on cowboy boots and pops a step aerobics tape into the VCR every night?
KEEP ONE IN YOUR AUTOMOBILE:
News flash: your luxury car does not need two spaces, but I appreciate how entitled you feel.
Your SUV is awesome for hauling your 2.5 kids and shopping bags around, but the fact that I can't open my driver side door because you squeaked in so close is just a tad inconvenient for me.
If you hit the curb or my bumper more than once, maybe parallel parking isn't for you.
DETAILS ABOUT YOUR PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE NOTEPADS:
Each notepad measure 5.5 by 8.5 inches, contains 50 pages, and is printed on Cougar Opaque Book paper.
ARE YOU READY TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE?
Good for you. In the meantime, why don't you order a notepad? And don't forget to tell all your Facebook friends and your real friends to get one too.
Risks and challenges
Unless this project goes "viral" and receives a gazillion backers, I do not foresee any issues with having these printed and shipped out in a timely fashion. (Ideally with plenty of time to spare before you finish your holiday shopping.)
I've worked in advertising for over ten years, so I am quite familiar with the print production process. However, any time you are working with an outside vendor there is a chance that something unexpected could cause a problem.
For example, I ordered a small batch of "Thanks for parking like a jerk" notepads from a random printer online as a test. And they arrived with the text off-center. (See photo above.)
For the final print run, I have already contacted a highly recommended, local printer to use instead. So I'll be able to check the physical proofs in person to ensure the best quality.
Thanks for reading. If you've made it this far, I hope you'll scroll back up and pick a reward.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
