The Practical Magic Activation Deck: Activate your life

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

What is Practical Magic?

This blended melting pot of goodness will help you to design your best life, make positive changes and live creatively on your own terms. And when you tap into the magic inside of you, you are able to access the answers to any questions you need answering.

Practical Magic is the secret to life. It’s the heart of you. 

We all get stuck sometimes. We all play out thoughts on repeat in our heads. We all struggle with fear and doubt. Sometimes it stops us in our tracks. Sometimes we get so blind-sided by procrastination and blockages that everything gets impacted.

Sometimes we just want someone else to give us all the answers. Truth is, you've already got them right there inside of you.

In my work as a creativity and empowerment coach I help people to connect to their innate wisdom. Getting space, tuning in and dialling up your own guidance allows you to create strategies and tools to bust procrastination, get out of your own way and move forward with confidence.

And that's what in this box, I’m using all of my experience as a life coach, Master NLP and hypnotherapy practitioner and Qoya teacher to help you, help yourself.

It’s all magic, practically delivered.

They are for you, they are designed with you in mind. Like me, you’re curious and creative, and you're open to learning more about yourself and what makes you tick.

The Practical Magic Activation Deck is fully powered with creativity and empowerment
The Practical Magic Activation Deck is fully powered with creativity and empowerment

Kate Taylor a creativity and empowerment coach, Master neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner & clinical hypnotherapist, Qoya teacher, writer, and speaker on a mission to help us live an embodied life, full of creative expression. Practical Magic is Kate's take on her blended melting pot of tools, and her approach in bringing spark, magic, and a bit of rock n’ roll colour to her client’s lives

Mat Denney is an artist, printmaker, photographer and creative director. His work blends digital precision with the warmth and unpredictability of analogue textures and mark-making. “It’s important to be open to surprises and accidents in the creative process. I like to think that the materials are exerting their will as much as I am - so the end result is a collaboration between me and my pencils and brushes”. The look of these cards is inspired by Practical Magic’s technicolour approach to life.

The Kickstarter funds will be used for the printing and production of the decks, and any other materials related to the rewards, as well as associated costs to fulfil getting these to you. I have also factored in business costs such as trademarking, and paying the designers and producers who’ve worked so hard with me to make this happen.

We also need to take Kickstarter and credit card payment processing fees into consideration.

If we are lucky enough to have any additional funding, we will be looking at creating additional designs, and work towards creating an app.

What's do you get in the Practical Magic Activation toolkit?

Risks and challenges

Here I will outline the main challenges, what has been done so far, and what I still need to do.

Where we’re at:

Everything including all design, writing, editing, suppliers and packaging is all ready to press the go button. As soon as the campaign is funded then printing can proceed.

I’m allowing approx. 6-8 weeks from the end of the campaign for the decks to be dispatched. This is dependent on the print production and the printers hitting their delivery dates. These timings are subject to me being happy with the quality of the samples and final product. Making sure you get a great product is my main objective.

For the remainder of the rewards - the limited edition pins are already produced and ready to send, the giclee prints are ready for print, and the limited edition screenprints are printed and ready to go.



Shipping:

Depending on how many people end up backing this project, I will use one of two delivery methods: (1) If we can handle shipping ourselves, we will be packaging and sending the rewards ourselves using Royal Mail services, or (2) if the demand is beyond my ability to do everything myself, which is a happy problem to have, we will be using a fulfilment house to do the shipping and handling.
Unfortunately shipping / postage costs are out of my hands. I've researched the most economic pricing for overseas postage to ensure adequate insurance to cover the goods you'll be receiving.

Import tax: Please note that you will be responsible for paying any import tax. Again, this is something which is out of our control.

Other rewards:
If you take up a place on the Practical Magic workshop with Mat and myself, or one-to-one coaching with myself I will personally be in touch to let you know dates and venues, and arrange the Skype session respectively.

If you are taking up the corporate offering for me to come into your workplace and deliver a workshop or team coaching, I will be in touch to discuss your needs further and get dates in the diary for us to begin the work together.

Payment:
Kickstarter process payment as soon as the campaign has been successfully funded. If for any reason your payment can’t be processed, then it’s up to us to chase payment. If for any case your payment has been declined we will offer an alternative way of payment such as PayPal. It’s important that all payments are processed, or it makes it difficult for us to fund the production of the rewards, and that affects everyone.


Me:
This project is my baby, and it means a lot to me and making sure you (the backers) receive the best possible product and experience. I am confident that I will be able to deliver the rewards as I’ve got them planned. If there are any issues that happen as we go through the production process, I will communicate them directly with you as I work to resolve them.

Why Kickstarter?
The short answer? In order to self-publish the deck I need enough pre-orders to print them in bulk. That’s it. And if I don’t reach my target we won’t go to print.

Slightly longer answer: Kickstarter has been my choice to get this work out to the world for a few reasons:

(1) The cost of printing decks is expensive; the more I can print them in bulk, the more cost-effective it will be, and that helps all of us.

(2) When creating these cards, I really embodied the essence of Practical Magic. I want it to connect with people who want to engage with it, rather than work with a rigid third party. That’s the soulful rebel in me.

(3) Kickstarter is a way of creating by community, and I want my supporters and readers to feel like they have had part in making this all happen, so we have a product with true heart at the centre of it.
