The Really Useful Piano Poster

£5,554

We have 1 simple mission - to make piano playing and music composition more fun, and more accessible to all.

↑ Overview

The Really Useful Piano Poster displays 48 separate scales, 60 individual chords and a wealth of musical theory, all in one easy-to-read poster. A great gift for Piano players and a best friend to Music Producers, the poster comes in a range of sizes, formats and colours that look great on any wall.

↑ Scales 

Never forget your scales again...or learn them if you never knew them! 4 of the most common scales (major, natural minor, melodic minor & harmonic minor) in all key signatures, including the left and right-hand fingerings. Clearly illustrated for ease of reading and memorisation.

↑ Chords

Play me an F# augmented chord. No? Me neither. 5 of the most common chords (major, minor, augmented, diminished & dominant seventh) in all key signatures, including all inversions of the chord. Clearly highlighted so you’ll never be stumped again.

↑ Theory

Diagrams and charts that help you read sheet music, write chords to a song, learn common musical notations and tempo ranges, identify relative keys, and learn the relationship between different key signatures. All handy references to help you create music.

↑ Design

The poster has been meticulously designed to make it easier to read and learn from. And we think it looks great on a wall too!

↑ Formats

The poster is available in a range of sizes, formats and colours to suit different tastes and applications. We’ve got you (and your wall) covered.

Standard – A1 Size. Printed on 170gsm gloss paper. Folded down to A4 which means it is much cheaper to ship. That's how we can offer FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE on this version.

Rolled - A1 Size. Printed on 250gsm gloss paper. Comes rolled in a cardboard tube. This means there are no creases in the poster, but it does cost more to ship.

Deluxe (Planned as a stretch goal) - A1 Size. Printed on 250gsm Arcoprint uncoated paper. Features silver foil debossing to logo. Comes rolled in a cardboard tube.

Special Edition (Planned as a stretch goal) - A1 Size. Printed on 270gsm Nexus Black uncoated paper. Features Spot UV and is printed in 4 different metallic inks. Comes rolled in a cardboard tube.

Classroom (Planned as a stretch goal) – A0 Size. Printed on 250gsm gloss paper. Fully laminated. Comes rolled in a cardboard tube.

↑ Funding & Rewards

Funding

We've developed the product, designed the brand, built the website and shot the video. Now, all we need is the money to fund our first print-run, so we can get The Really Useful Piano Poster off the ground and into the hands of those whom it will benefit.

Rewards

We have a simple reward structure, with something for everyone.

1. Our ‘thank you’ reward which is for anyone who wants to donate £1 or more to our campaign. The proceeds will fund the production of a special video, focusing on the technical processes involved in making our posters. The video will be shot using a Phantom Flex 4K ultra-high-speed camera, allowing us to capture ultra-slow-motion, ultra-high-definition footage of the different processes involved in all their technical glory.

2. We are offering our ‘Standard’ and ‘Rolled’ versions of the poster as rewards, with a limited amount available at early-bird pricing.

3. If we exceed our campaign goal in good time and in a manner that suggests adequate demand, we also have 3 further rewards planned, offering our ‘Deluxe’, ‘Special Edition’ and ‘Classroom’ versions.

We are aiming to ship all rewards in June 2018. The final poster may be subject to improvement changes.

Conclusion

This poster was designed out of a genuine need to bring certain learning resources together onto 1 easily-accessible format. We are really happy with the end product, and genuinely believe it will help many people learn to play and compose music far more easily. We love that thought, we love this product and we love this business. We hope you do too.

↑ Shipping

Packaging

Depending on which version of the poster you buy, it will be shipped in different packaging.

Standard – These A1 posters are folded down to A4 size (the same size as a sheet of office paper) and placed inside a plastic A4 mailing bag. This means the overall package is very small and light, therefore it is much cheaper to ship than any of the other options. That's how we can offer FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE on this version.

Rolled, Deluxe & Special Edition – These versions are the same size as the Standard version (A1), but they come rolled rather than folded (meaning they arrive with you crease-free). They are shipped inside an A1-sized cardboard mailing-tube, which means they are more expensive to ship than the Standard version.

Classroom – This version is twice the size of all the other versions, so it is shipped inside an A0-sized cardboard mailing-tube. This means it is the most expensive poster to ship.

Carriers & Transit Times

All Standard posters are sent via 1st Class unregistered mail, which means they do not come with tracking numbers or insurance. We do this so that there is a low-cost option for people who want to buy the poster around the world.

All other versions (Rolled, Deluxe, Special Edition & Classroom) are sent via tracked and signed services, meaning you'll receive a tracking number for your order once it has been dispatched, and you'll be required to sign for the package once it reaches you.

Risks and challenges

We've developed the product, designed the brand, built the website and shot the video. Now, all we need is the money to fund our first print-run, so we can get The Really Useful Piano Poster off the ground and into the hands of those whom it will benefit. We’ve set a realistic funding target and we see very little risk that we will not be able to fulfil all rewards, but if there are any issues with production, our backers would be the first to know.

    Our next Video

    We want to take a Phantom Flex 4K ultra-high-speed camera down to the printing facility in South London to film the production of our first print-run. We aim to capture ultra-slow-motion, ultra-high-definition footage of the different processes involved such as lithographic printing, debossing, folding and wrapping, then produce a short film demonstrating the end-to-end production of our posters, in all its technical glory.

    As a thank-you, your name will feature in the credits of the video (unless you don’t want it to).
