Remember those candygrams you sent to your crushes and friends in middle school? Or those bumper stickers you used to post on your friends' Facebook pages? Well I want to bring 'em back, with a bit more flavor.
Sending good ol' fashioned snail mail makes for a special surprise, particularly in THE digital age- it's sure to stand out from the daily clutter and bring a smile to your friends' and family's faces.
So I've created magnets (the magnets are high quality prints, 2 inches x 2 inches) with awesomely funny messages on them, that you can send to people, who can actually permanently use them on their lockers or fridges or magnetized derriers.
Because the magnets' sayings can be surprisingly unsweet, they're paired with sour candy to pack the right punch.
So there you have it, I want to help you send a new kind of candygram: funny messages on magnets paired with sour candy. Making someone's day has never been easier!
Why am I on Kickstarter?
I'm here trying to kickstart the initial print run of magnets, sort of a pre-order. Basically I need some scale in order to bring these to people's doorsteps and into their hearts at a reasonable price. If we hit this goal, together we'll have delighted 100 people with funnygrams!
I'm passionate about writing, illustrating, and laughing and look forward to continuing to create new funnygrams til the end of time. You can catch some of my stand-up comedy (which I love writing but hate performing) here, here, and here. Eventually I'd like to expand the platform to allow other comedians to submit magnet ideas as well.
So what do these rewards look like? Take a peek:
Rewards: Full on funnygram
You can see all the available quotes/drawings on my blog: http://funnygrams.tumblr.com/
And on my website (only a small selection of funnygrams) which will be ready to roll once it's stocked up: http://www.funnygrams.blogspot.com/
Rewards: Funnygram sayings on super soft American Apparel t-shirts
So where's all that money going? Breakdown of the funds:
If I hit my goal we'll be able to afford to delight 100 people:
- 12 sheets of 9 magnets a piece= approx $180
- 100 bags of candy= approx $100
- 100 envelopes & postage= approx $100
- Amazon & Kickstarter's Fees= approx $40
- A brand new BMW= approx $50,000
Wait hold on a second, scratch the BMW. Total= $420.
Now that you're totally psyched about funnygrams, what's next?
Please select a reward you'd like on the right and make your pledge! If you don't know the address you want to send the funnygram to yet, or haven't selected which magnets you want, that's fine- pledge now and I'll ask you for the details later. If you can't afford to contribute monetarily, no worries- please share this project with your friends and "like" it. Anything you can do will help and I'll be super appreciative! And so will my dog. Look how stoked she is, she's totally smiling at you:
Thanks so much for your support and time!
P.S. I'm kicking it forward, I'll be reinvesting part of this project's funds back into the Kickstarter community: http://kickingitforward.org
