Kickstarter Gold: The ACME Corporation

$20,869

397

My name is Rob, and I'd like your help to create a new Kickstarter Gold poster of every product from The ACME Corporation. In 2012 I watched every Coyote & Road Runner episode, then hand drew all 126 wacky gadgets, explosives, and items that appeared in the cartoons. My poster Kickstarter was featured in The Wall Street Journal and WIRED after raising $105,000. It's time for a shiny 'I Spy' Gold Edition of The ACME Corporation!

 

I spy, with my little eye... Tornado seeds! Giant magnets! Dynamite! Rocket powered roller skates! Anvils! Giant Rubber Bands! I spent over 100 hours illustrating, designing, and researching the original poster, and this metallic I Spy Gold Edition was amazingly a ton of work as well. 

The fictional ACME Corporation appeared in nearly all 43 Coyote & Road Runner cartoons from 1949-1994. They make any product you can imagine. I've loved The ACME Corporation since I was a kid because they're a true dream factory.

How amazing would it be if The ACME Corporation were real? That's why I made the original poster; to make our world a little crazier. This update to to my illustrations makes the posters even more fun on your wall! I drew it, and trying to find one of the 126 gadgets is still tough for me.

 

 

Details

This 18x24" poster captures all the tiny details of these fun items. The posters will be beautifully screen printed with luxurious metallic gold ink on thick Tangy Orange French Paper, signed by me. One poster is just $39. Shipping to the US is free. Yup, free. (Canada is $8, All other countries are $16.)

$49 Tier - Poster + Gallery Plaque

Add $10 to your $39 pledge, and gain a laser engraved gallery title plaque! You can glue this to your own picture frame, and it makes the poster look like it's from a cool museum! These are made by me in my workshop.

$149 Tier - Ready-to-hang FRAMED Poster

Your poster can arrive completely ready to hang, in a rustic black wooden frame sized perfectly for this 18 x 24" poster. The engraved gallery plaque will already be attached for you, and your poster will be protected by a large sheet of acrylic glass. This is 'easy mode' as I can do the hard work for you (I'm pretty fast at framing!)

I've used Kickstarter to fund FOUR different print projects in the past. Let's make this happen, again! (Okay, none of us expect $105,000 again, but I do hope a few of us enjoy this shiny new print).

 

Special thanks to our talented printers in Michigan: VGKIds. Water based eco-friendly inks! And paper produced with 100% hydroelectric power from The French Paper Company.

 

Risks and challenges

Printing will be handled by the amazingly talented VGKids in Michigan. I have worked with them on probably 40+ different posters and projects. They know me, I know them! They are perfect. (So no risk here!)

Shipping & customer service was hard for me last year, I suffer from Major Depressive Disorder and my brain was a hot mess!

I have pre-emptively enlisted the help of my close friends to ensure this project *swiftly* gets to your door! They are fantastic, and as this is my 5th Kickstarter in as many years, I'm more confident about efficient shipping schedules than ever! (Side note: I feel great this month! Lots of hard work.)

Shipping requires you to fill out your backer survey at the very end of the campaign. It's super easy! I'll get your address from the survey, but that means I can't ship your poster unless your address is 100% accurate. If there are mistakes, I'll contact you, or you can contact me, no worries! About 5% of folks seem to forget the survey, don't let that be you! ;)
