Welcome to the John Avon Art Unhinged Playmats Project - at last these classic images from 2004 are available!
PLEASE NOTE - to qualify for any of the free extras you must at least pledge for one playmat.
LATEST NEWS - THANK YOU WE DID IT!
We hit our 5th and final (I think) stretch goal.. now every backer (new or existing) will receive...
- Free shipping anywhere!
- Playmat(s) signed for free by John (all Kickstarter mats signed, including the retailers bundle)
- A set of 5 exclusive, luxurious Unstable land prints for each backer, with the Unhinged prints on the rear!
Also, for existing backers...
- backers 1-4000 will receive 2 signed artist proofs, backers 4001 to 5500 one signed artist proof.
Stretch Goal 5 reached!
Every backer will now receive a set of 5 exclusive double-sided prints - meaning you can choose your favourite or switch the scene.
Artist proofs - shortage! We did not anticipate such huge take up therefore after the 4000th backer we will have to limit artist proofs to one each. After backer 5500 we run out of artist proofs so backers beyond this point will not receive this bonus item, sorry!
About this project
We have considered long and hard the best way to get these Ultra Pro playmats out to people at a fair price.
As we have to pay up front for production and shipping to the UK it became obvious the best way to do this was Kickstarter, you help us raise the funds and we pass along a good deal to you, no middle men involved.
This approach allows us to offer FREE SHIPPING on all playmats anywhere in the world. If you are in the USA, for instance, this is a saving of around £9 ($12).
We have a couple of exciting free stretch goals which we will announce as we go along, these will make the deals even better!
After the Kickstarter these playmats will have an RRP/MSRP of £29.95/$39.95 and, of course, you would have to pay for shipping and will not receive the stretch goal extras - if we get to them.
Surplus funds from this project will be directed toward the John Avon Art studio and gallery we are planning to open 2018.
Here are the individual playmats, available from just £25 (under $34) for Very Earlybird, £26 (about $35) for Earlybird and £27 (about $36.50) for everyone else. FREE SHIPPING WORTH UP TO £10 ($13.50)!
The Doodle playmats will include a design of John's choice, and be signed. Available shipped anywhere for £39 (about $53). Only 10 of each mat available.
The Collector's bundles will reward you with one of each playmat - with additional discounts. Available from £99 (about $134) for Very Earlybird, £109 ($148) for Earlybird and £119 ($161) for everyone else. Shipping free for all on these too.
Collector Doodles - there are only 5 of these bundles available - you will receive all 5 playmats with doodles, and signatures, by John. Available for £179 ($242), shipped anywhere.
5th Stretch Goal reached!
Now each backer receives a set of exclusive premium Unstable with Unhinged on the rear!
Our 4th goal has been achieved - now EVERY Unstable print as a gift for EVERY backer!
Third stretch goal achieved - now every backer will receive (at least) one Unstable print (their choice)!
We hit our second stretch goal! Now John will sign everyone's playmats (unless, as a few of you have expressed, you don't want it signed). Full update and third stretch goal announcement coming soon...
We hit our first stretch goal! Each backer up to backer 4000 will now get 2 free signed artists proofs - randomly selected. If we get beyond 4000 backers then the next 1500 backer will get one signed artist proof.
Risks and challenges
Our aim is to get these to you before Christmas.
These playmats will take around 5-6 weeks to be produced after the Kickstarter finishes.
Then they will be shipped to the UK which will take a further week.
Then they will be processed and shipped immediately to backers.
We have already run a very large Kickstarter (John's book - Journeys to Somewhere Else) and have experience shipping thousands of items.
Our biggest risk is not getting these to you on schedule if something out of our hands occurs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
