We do Cats On Amps every day on Instagram at @CatsOnAmps and Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CatsOnAmps666. We love you, you love us, we all love cats and we all love amps.
We wanted to do a simple Kickstarter campaign to bring you something easy that we can all enjoy; a Cats On Amps 2016 Calendar and an exclusive limited edition shirt from the amazing artist Santos. Santos does a lot of great artwork for the label Sargent House and bands like Mutoid Man and Torche. Here is an example of his work, an album cover for the new Mutoid Man record "Bleeder".
We needed some extra scratch, literally, to cover basic costs associated with bringing a calendar and t-shirt from a concept into a reality. Kickstarter has been a fantastic tool for us in bringing projects from planning and design phases into reality.
For this project the highest quality 8.5 X 11 wall calendars will be made to order and are roughly $24.99 per unit. Therefore we will only be ordering wall calendars for the exact number of backers of this project.
We have not made a final decision on whether t-shirts will be exclusive and print only the number backed or if we will make shirts available after the campaign. That is yet to be determined.
Enjoy a few examples from our daily editions Cats On Amps which have been appearing on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
Risks and challenges
Risks, things can and sometimes do go wrong however we have full confidence that we are on track. We have solicited hi resolutions photos directly from the Cats On Amps community and we will be receiving permissions from all photography copyright owners to use their image for a monthly spot on the calendar. In addition we have reached out to Santos and been placed on his calendar for a Cats On Amps T Shirt we will then include in this campaign. It is yet to be determined if this t-shirt design will be exclusive to this Kickstarter.
The challenges are communication breakdowns, unrealistic expectations, competing priorities, and all the usual dynamics which surround creative processes and Kickstarter campaigns. With the new year being a bit more than four months away we should have sufficient time to launch and fulfill this campaign. The challenge will be coordinating efforts and keeping all deliverables within necessary deadlines. We will work hard and make this another successful project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
