Hi Kickstarter!

Four years ago, we joined this amazing community and you helped bring Litographs to life, as we launched our first collection of literary t-shirts.

Since then we've expanded our collection of t-shirts, posters and totes to feature the work of nearly 200 classic and contemporary authors. And in 2014, over six thousand of you helped us create the world's longest literary tattoo chain and launch our line of temporary literary tattoos.

This year we're back to ask for your support to help launch our new product line for 2016... Now you can wear your favorite author's words on infinity scarves!

To celebrate the launch of our scarves, for the first time ever, we're producing entirely custom Litographs, exclusive to Kickstarter. We've always wanted to print your words, and now each and every backer will be able to wear their own unique text.

Whether you would love to see your own writing in print (maybe you have a short story or write poetry), wear the words of a loved one or friend (perhaps your other half writes song lyrics), or pick any other piece of text in the public domain (a classic novel from before 1923, a famous historical speech, or even the first 40,000 digits of pi) – we will handcraft you a truly one-of-a-kind scarf or t-shirt. You can even customize the color, style and size of your text.

We can't wait to see what you'll come up with!

– Danny, Founder at Litographs

When the Kickstarter ends, we'll send you a survey to choose your product type, customize your font and color, and upload your own custom piece of text. You can also pick one of the nearly 200 classic or contemporary books in our collection (explore our list of available books here – including Pride and Prejudice, OutlanderSherlock HolmesAlice’s Adventures in WonderlandHamlet, and many more).

Depending on the font size and style you choose, you can fit between 2,000 and 40,000 words on your scarf or t-shirt. For instance, 40,000 words is about the length of a short novel. However, it doesn't matter how long or how short your text is – we can use an extract, or repeat your words across whichever product you choose.

If you fancy getting yourself (or a friend or loved one) a truly one-of-a-kind Litographs scarf or t-shirt, below you'll find some fun ideas we've come up with as inspiration if you're choosing the custom text option. As long as it's your own writing, you have permission to use it, or it's in the public domain – your imagination is the only limit!

Just like our t-shirts, our new infinity scarves will be hand-pressed to order in Cambridge, MA. We use high-quality, 100% spun polyester to deliver the look and feel of cotton, while allowing for full color, all-over dye sublimation printing – your text will cover every inch! Dye sublimation printing produces vibrant, super soft, permanent prints that are guaranteed to never shrink or fade when machine washed.

Every Litographs design emerges from the text of a book. Just as the words on the pages of your favorite novel come alive in your imagination, so our products are designed to illustrate the memorable characters and scenes rooted in these words. We work closely with top artists to create a new visual experience for classic and contemporary works alike.

From a distance, the artwork on our t-shirts, posters, totes – and now scarves – illustrates a theme, character, or setting from each book. Move closer and the text becomes fully legible!

Find our full collection at litographs.com – we've been making art from books since 2011.

Risks and challenges

We've been printing text on clothing and accessories for 4 years, making improvements in quality each and every year. While this is our first time producing infinity scarves at scale, we're working with the same process and with the same team who have produced hundreds of thousands of hand-pressed Litographs t-shirts for book lovers all over the world.

If we achieve our goal, we guarantee that you will receive a product you love.
