Hello everyone! Welcome to our Second Kickstarter!

We are very proud to introduce our new art print project called
the  O  R  I  G  I  N  Series!

Below we have every detail you may want to know about this project such as our Goals, Introductions, Story for this project, Rewards, Stretch Goals, and a very important section for International Backers!

The idea behind the  O  R  I  G  I  N  Series was to create a collection of art prints that had a very unique take on the stories of how our favorite characters came to be.

Each print has it's own personality, and at it's very core each print represents the story of one character. Although all the prints may not look the same, they still fit together as a series. They were all illustrated the way we thought fit the character, and story best. The most exciting part about this series is that as we created each one, we had no idea what it was going to look like. We tried to follow the story of each character as much as possible. With each illustration, we only tell you as much as you need to know to figure out who they are, and what their story is.

The more you look at these prints, the more you will start to see. So go ahead, take a closer. We'll wait for you. Don't worry, go ahead. (...) Great, you're back! Let's keep going.

We hope that this series not only looks super sweet on your wall, and you get to enjoy them everyday, but we hope that everyone will get to learn a little bit more about the origin of these characters. We think it's important to know why, where, and how they became the people we love to read about in comics, or love to watch up on the big screen.

When we came up with the idea for the first print, the idea for 2 more came up, and soon enough we had a whole series of 20+ planned out! Although not all of them may ever see the light of day, and they are not all finished, we certainly tried to pick the best ones with the most versatile looks to make the very best looking prints! We have been working on this project for months now, thinking about all the different ways we could do a certain character's story, and how we could make each print truly different.

We think that the concept of these prints is truly unique from all the other prints out there because this collection of prints presents our favorite characters in a very personal and stylistic way. We show the struggles, and in some cases the sacrifices, some of these characters went through to become our beloved characters.

We have been so excited to show these off to the world, and now the time has finally come for the big reveal, so thank you so much for taking the time to look at our project! We truly appreciate it!

Please, read carefully below for details on rewards, and stretch goal specifications because depending on the tier that you pledge for, it depends what kind of free print you will receive! We tried our best to give you the bang for your buck, so here it goes!

*As we reach each stretch goal you will be able to add any of the new prints released to your pledge by either, using the Art Shop we will launch after the first stretch goal is reached, or if you pledge for "The Incredible Package"($165) and above, since those have repeat prints in different sizes, if you would like to substitute any of the repeats you will be able to but ONLY after the prints are unlocked. More details to come.

FYI: When the project is over, and hopefully funded *fingers crossed*, the large prints will NOT retail at $20ea, and the small ones will NOT retail at $3ea like our previous collections. All of the prints will at a higher price, so the deals you get during this Kickstarter are amazing, and they will never happen again! If you ever decide that you would like to buy this collection, and you got your eye on a few of them, this is definitely the time to do so, and save some money!

All of the canvases are also Kickstarter Exclusives! You will not be able to buy an 18"x24" canvas with the  O  R  I  G  I  N  Series again, so hurry up and get yours now!

If you pledge for The Crusader Package you will have a chance to work with us to create an  O R I G I N  Series print of your favorite character! Once you pledge for it, please contact us about what characters you had in mind for your very own O R I G I N print!

Hello International Backers! This section is here to provide you with info on shipping. 

We have sent many packages/prints internationally before because of our previous Kickstarter, and through our own website as well, and we have learned a few things about sending packages outside the U.S. and here are a few things we would like for you to know.

For this project, the fees added for International Shipment are for us to be able to pay for First Class Mail postage while using United States Postal Service. First Class Mail is the most economical form of shipment (that can take up to 3-5 weeks depending on where you are). The fee also covers a little bit of added insurance for your package to make sure it can get there, because in case it does not get there (which it has happened unfortunately), we will be able to get a refund from the USPS for your package so we can send it again! We know it is not the greatest option, but it is the most affordable one. On that note, we should also let you know that we have sent plenty of packages internationally to countries like  Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, England, New Zealand, and many more that arrive with no problems while using the USPS First Class Mail.

If you want your prints faster, and/or price is not a problem for you, there are other opetions. We can use vendors like FedEx, or UPS to get your shipment to you. Please, let us know if you would like to upgrade your shipping and we can give you an estimate of how much more it would cost to send your package.

We apologize for this inconvenience. Please, be aware that we have absolutely NO influence in shipping prices, and arrival times. We do our best to send your package as soon as possible to you, while using the safest, and most economical way because who doesn't love to save a few bucks? If you have any other questions, please let us know by sending us a message through Kickstarter, or e-mail us at hi@theninjabot.com. Thank you so much!

Here are a few extra important details for you to know before you go pledge for your favorite print!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks and challenges of this project are the production times. Everything we get comes from a different facility, and every place takes different amount of days to get the printing and customization done for our unique products. If their production time is delayed, our shipping time will unfortunately be delayed. However, we have planned, with the best of our abilities, to have everything digitally ready to be sent to the appropriate vendor when the time comes. As soon as we receive the money from the, hopefully, funded project, we will get production started so that everything can get sent out to you as soon as possible! We know how excited you guys are to get all of the cool stuff!
