About

Welcome To My Desk

I am Florian Weber and with Paperlegend, I am combining two of my biggest passions: shapely classic cars and creativity. As a car designer, I started paper crafting and took it one step further. With their minimalistic abstraction, the sculptures are celebrating the car design ikons from the past and tastefully place them in the homes or garages of automotive enthusiasts like my self. Today I am inviting you to have a seat next to me on my desk.

A look at my Desk while assembling a Paperlegend

Throughout the car community, car sculptures made from resin and concrete are all the rage. The thing is, these sculptures are impossible for most people to do on their own and pretty expensive if you are looking into buying one. Papercraft presents an interesting alternative. The papercraft community, though, is still small, and the cars often come only as downloadable files, the whole process much more convoluted than it needs to be. 

My solution is Paperlegend. Offering pre-cut, pre-creased, ready-to-assemble papercraft car kits, I am making it simpler than ever before for people you to create art based on your favourite vehicles. Celebrating classic and iconic cars, these are clean, easy-to-follow kits that are perfect for anyone who is passionate about driving cars, learning about cars, working on cars, and living the life of a petrolhead.

Decorate your home or garage with these interpretations of timeless classics.

                                Choose, Individualize, Build!


The Choice Is Yours

 The first 75 Orders on each of these 3 Paperlegend´s will be delivered before Chrismas.

The Rally Legend and the Formula Legend will be delivered on March 2020. 

From racy sports cars to heavy-duty offroaders there is a Paperlegend for every creative car design lover.

Individualize

Customize your Paperlegend and order with any of the offered Colors.

Sleek Silver, Brave Bronze, Gunmetal Grey, Cool Copper, Genious Gold, Brilliant Blue, Ruby Red, Glossy Black, Forst Green,

Canvas White - in case you want to customize your Paperlegend

I will keep looking for new exciting paper, that gives you even more possibilities to customize your Paperlegend. I am also planning to have a configurator to give you even more freedom in customization. Including additional lights, changing the rims and whole body kits.

Build! 

You will receive the parts precut and creased in a very clear layout. The assembly instructions are on the inside of the Sculpture, so you can focus entirely on the building process. Now you just need to grab some glue and start crafting the sculpture.

Insurance - Just In Case Something Goes Wrong

Just like every other Car, Paperlegend´s come with an I insurance. Committed to outstanding service, I am offering to resend one additional copy of one failed part for each kit. There will also be the possibility to reorder parts in case something goes wrong.

Community - Paperlegend Is About You

Everyone has his personal hero from the past, and there are so many awesome cars that need to be honoured. But to know which cars you really want to see revived as a paperlegend I will listen to the community. Once the project is successfully funded I will start creating sculptures based on your favourite cars. I will have a gallery on my Homepage to feature how you customized your Paperlegend. Also, it is the place to share how you integrated them into your home or garage.

New Reward Added 

For those of you who love the Project and want to support it without an actual Sculpture. With these special cards, I will say thank you to all my Backers. Still, it is obvious that this is a true Paperlegend.



Open For Collaborations

Collaboration with Artist Ivan Shmatov

To bring even more variety to the Paperlegend family I am actively looking for collaborations with other Designers and Artists. collaboration with a great artist and a good friend of mine, Ivan Shmatov. He creates stunning colourful car sketches. We put his sketches on top of the Paperlegend Sculptures to create a really nice effect. Adding additional drama with the dynamically tilted car. These collaborations sculptures will become available after the Crowdfunding campaign closes successfully?

What I Need & What You Get

Right now, I am turning to you, Kickstarter, for help raising the funds that I need to launch the production infrastructure for Paperlegend, making it possible for me to deliver my kits to car enthusiasts all around the world. My goal through this campaign is to put together € 15.000, and every dollar  Euro helps.

To say thanks to everyone who knows a contribution to this campaign, I am offering some Kickstarter-exclusive rewards, including early access to the 3 debut Paperlegend´s (Whale Tail, Geländewagen Verteidiger, Wild Horse) and delivery before Chrismas.

Enough Talking More Pictures

Whale Tail - Top view - Wallschulpture

The world is Flat, at least almost with the Whale Tail, coming in a reduced look perfect for integrating into your home or garage. 

 Geländewagen Verteidiger - Full sculpture

 Go offroad with the Geländewagen Verteidiger Comes as a Full Sculpture and is the smallest of the Range. Nevertheless packed with cool details and a stunningly simple appearance.

Wild Horse - Side view - Wall Sculpture

 The Wild Horse lined up in the Pitlane, ready? Set, GO!

Rally Legend - Side view - Wall Sculpture

Due to the minimalism of this sculpture, it is one of the fastest to build.

Formula Legend - Full Sculpture - With Background

If you really want a challenge go ahead with the Formula Legend. Super detailed complex sculpture, blending with the Background. It has a flashy 2 tone livery, which makes it stand out from the other Sculptures. 

Risks and challenges

I never ran a production line in my life, but I am a quick learner and have some industry professionals at hand to help me plan the Distribution.
