"Bigfoot Patrol" Membership Kit - Artist Merchandise
"Bigfoot Patrol" Membership Kit art project: card, sticker, button, embroidered patch, t-shirt, prints & original art.
Put Your Best Foot Forward!
The Bigfoot Patrol is now accepting applications to join the elite ranks of our Cryptid Tracker Trail Team. With a directive to seek out incontrovertible evidence of Bigfoot in a world full of skeptics, we need YOU to explore new wilderness, capture sightings, debunk hoaxes, educate the masses, as well as the occasional light errand around HQ. No heavy lifting required.
The chosen few will receive as part of their initiation into the mysterious "Order of the Foot" the following members-only accessories, identification and insignia to confirm their position to any questioning naysayers, authority figures, and other random weirdos.
The main Bigfoot Patrol Membership Kit ($25 level) includes:
- membership card (of course!)
- 3" die-cut sticker
- 1.5" button/pin
- 3" embroidered patch
- 6-color screen-printed t-shirt
As an incentive to backers to help us meet the goal, there are 50 8.5" x 11", 2-color, screen-printed prints, signed and numbered in a limited edition of 100. You also get all the items in the main kit as well.
There are also 25 slots to get an original Bigfoot-themed sketch, custom drawn for you! If you order the sketch reward, you also get a signed and numbered print and it will be numbered in the first 25! And of course all the main items in the kit!
Each reward level includes one each of ALL of the items in the reward levels below it, and all rewards include shipping in the domestic U.S.!
There are lower-priced reward levels offering just the email updates ($1), a membership card only ($5), or the patch/button/sticker/card combo ($10).
All the artwork has been created, designed and is ready to go to the various printers and manufacturers to get all of this cool stuff into production. The only thing we need to know is how much to order! That's where your funding comes in.
In addition to regular updates on the production process for all backers, I'll be posting exclusive first-look original sketches for Kickstarter backers only. I have the rough sketches for 9 more Bigfoot-type characters from around the world (like the Sasquatch, the Yeti, the Skunk Ape and more) and I'd love to be able to at least get some of the items created — like stickers and embroidered patches — for all of those other Bigfoot relatives.
I will be working on finalizing those sketches as this fundraiser is in effect, posting those sketches exclusively to the Kickstarter updates section accessible only by backers — er, I mean official Bigfoot Patrol Founding Members!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge in this fundraiser is to allow for all the variations of potential combinations that could fund this project. We could sell tons of patches but very few t-shirts.
Since manufacturers have some minimum requirements, this project will need to meet those in order to fulfill each reward level. If only one "T-Shirt" level reward is backed, I still have to have the 72 minimum for the order placed.
Ideally my pricing breakdown should cover most of these situations. But if it turns out that the backer quantities just are not there for reward levels that have high minimums, other arrangements may need to be made. Especially the t-shirts, which are the most expensive item to have printed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
