About

$968

Ever since I was little, I've always wanted to be a full time artist. Now, I am taking some small steps toward reaching that goal, one of those being an attempt to offer more products to customers through a run of postcard prints.

This kickstarter project allows me the possibility of printing products in a larger run than I could usually afford, allowing me to keep my prices reasonable for my customers, while still allowing for a healthy profit margin. It will also allow me the option of offering wholesale prices to retailers, should I find any interested. As an added bonus for my backers, many of my rewards are an opportunity to snag some discounted prints and paintings.

My plan is to start with a set of five 4" x 6" postcards featuring my paintings "Paeonia", "Morning Hunt", "Life", "Fairy Dragon" and "Jarri". If we can raise more than my $250 goal, I will add more postcard designs and more rewards!

Stretch goals:  

Every $50 past my initial goal will fund the addition of another postcard design! $300 - 6 designs, $350 - 7 designs, and so on, until I run out of designs that work well in postcard format.

Stretch Goal #1! - REACHED!

At $300 we can add another image to the set!

Stretch Goal #2! - REACHED!

At $350 we can add another image to the set! 

Quest

Stretch Goal #3! - REACHED!

At $450 I will add "Rainbow Wyvern" to the set! Slightly higher stretch goal dollar amount is to help cover mounting shipping costs, which are difficult to predict for a project with so many different rewards being shipped to different countries.

Stretch Goal #4! - REACHED!

At $500 I will add "Hide and Seek" to the set!

At $650 I will add "Skull" to the set!

Stretch Goal #7 - REACHED!

At $850 I will add "Overlook" to the set! Higher stretch goal dollar amount is again due to mounting shipping expenses, which are difficult to predict.

Stretch Goal #8
