THIS IS 100% REAL.
We all have someone who is impossible to buy for.
Until now there hasn't been a good way to say thanks, to give back, or simply make them smile. So we created a one-of-a-kind package designed to deliver what they really need.
NOTHING is... well, nothing. But what really makes this Kickstarter special is how it's delivered to you-
Each order of NOTHING arrives in a quality, custom designed, LIMITED EDITION envelope.
WHY WOULD I BACK NOTHING?
You could give it to the person in your life who is impossible to buy for.
It's the perfect gift for the person who has everything.
Or, if you're like us you believe that quality design matters... even when it's NOTHING.
If that's the case you could buy it for yourself and put it on display for all to see.
REWARD LEVELS FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE NOTHING MATTERS
One of the most requested upgrades from backers is a framed version of NOTHING that arrives ready to hang. So we searched the web high and low for the highest quality frame partner out there. That's where Level Frames comes in.
For those who choose to upgrade- Our friends at Level will float "NOTHING" above a white archival mat board, and frame it using a gallery-style black profile with 1/2" spacers. A UV-protective, glare-reducing acrylic glaze prevents fading and will protect your NOTHING over the long haul. The final frame will be 10" x 10" and 1" deep.
HOW TO UPGRADE:
Simply increase your pledge total by $70 (per envelope) for US and Canada Backers ($140 for the rest of the world). This price INCLUDES shipping and is a fraction of what you would pay to custom frame NOTHING on your own.
Then, at the end of the campaign when we send out a "Backer Survey," you can designate what you want your additional pledge amount to be applied to!
Still think backing something else on Kickstarter is better than backing NOTHING? Listen to what these real people are saying about NOTHING:
Need more? Glad you asked:
So what do you say? Are you ready to finally be a part of something with NOTHING?
Is this really a Kickstarter for NOTHING?
So I'll actually receive a real package in the mail with NOTHING inside?
Then why should I back it?
Maybe NOTHING is an art project making some self-aware and ironic statement about consumerism. Or maybe it's designed to remind the recipient that they have enough, that they are enough. We all have someone who is impossible to buy for. This a great way to finally say thanks, to give back, and simply make them smile.
What can I do with NOTHING?
What can I do with the envelope my NOTHING arrives in?
You could give it to someone who needs NOTHING as much as you do, or frame it and proudly display it yourself.
OK, great, but what are you really going to do with the money?
The vast majority of the funds will cover production and labor costs to physically create and ship the envelopes out. Anything left over will be used to help set things in motion for our second Kickstarter which (we promise) will be for something.
Who are the Muchmore Brothers?
When they are not doing NOTHING, Jason spends his days online as TEKSTartist. Zach also spends his days designing stuff-n-things in a remote log cabin he built himself from sustainably harvested sequoias. Together they formed Muchmore, a two man group dedicated to making things like NOTHING.
First off- A huge thanks to our incredibly patient and supportive wives.
Additionally, this project would not have looked nearly as pretty as it does without the additional talent and effort of Tim Butler, Cliff Endsley, and Tony Erickson. It would not have the clarity it does without the guidance of Clay Hebert, as well as input from Elan Lee, Ze Frank, and Kevin Pereira.
Risks and challenges
Although we have packed and shipped thousands of packages containing things over the years, most of them contained something. This is the first time we will go through all the trouble of shipping NOTHING.
Though we will do everything in our power to ensure each and every order contains absolutely NOTHING, there is a small chance some of them will contain something. If this happens to you, simply ship back your order and we will replace your defective item with NOTHING.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
