DUE TO A SLIGHT MIX-UP I WILL BE SHOWING MY WORK ON JULY 1st (not June 3rd)

Thank you ALL for your help in getting this project funded! Since I still have a few hours to go, I wanted to let you all know what I'll be spending any extra funds on (you can also check this out on the updates page for a more in depth description):

Tables. 

Better Frames made locally. 

A Reprint.  

Another Tympan/Frisket. 

A Drill. 

A 10x10 Canopy.

Emergencies. 

**************************************

Welcome to my kickstarter project, Vinyl Shine Prints!

I am trying to raise funds to complete a series of letterpress prints featuring vinyl records.

I went on a lot of car trips when I was young, and whenever I would try and concentrate on something inside the car, I would start to feel ill. So I would stare out the window and listen to the music- I loved it. I want each print to tell a story like this. To pinpoint a moment when life stopped and the music played on.

I would like to state that I love music- especially on vinyl. Because of this love, I only use records that are scratched or warped and are no longer friendly to my turntable.

I want this to be a series of 5 prints, with an edition of around 50 each.  Every print is inked by hand, every color run separately through my Poco Proof Press. I have one finished, one almost complete, and three more that I need your help with!

Through the process of fixing my press and attempting to fix another one, I have run through my savings. In order to complete this project, I need your help to buy a few essentials:

Paper!       

Ink!

Mailing Supplies!

A small set of cuts essential for 2 of the prints!

And the opportunity to frame one set of prints for display at the wonderful Sweet Melissa Records in Marietta, GA on July 1st

Any amount is greatly appreciated, and you won’t leave empty handed. If my project gets funded, you can look forward to some awesome rewards.  Please check out the right side of the page for a list of rewards.

Thank you so much, now go experience some music!
