New Reward: Send A Card and Stretch Forks -- Another Project Worth Your Look

Making More Connections in the Final Week - Pushing My Stretch Goals

In this short video I share the inspiration for adding another reward—at multiple levels—into the FORKS Kickstarter Mix. Please take 3 minutes and check it out:

In order to incentivize existing backers, to attract new backers looking for different rewards, and push harder to reach the $40k stretch goal, I'm introducing new greeting cards as reward enhancements. You can choose to upgrade your reward level or simply share the new rewards with friends and ask that they back the FORKS Kickstarter project!

FORKS Greetings Cards Featuring Original Photography By Allan Karl

I've received letters and cards from people I've met all over the world: Argentina, Ethiopia, Zambia and more. The thrill of getting a physical card or letter in the mail is so special. So much that I've forgotten that feeling of joy when opening a personal letter or card. 

It's so easy to send a text or fire off yet another email. When is the last time you wrote a letter or sent a real thank you card? Maybe now is the time to make an impression.

With these new FORKS Greeting Cards, say whatever you wants, the cards are blank inside, but feature wonderful images I shot from all over the planet.

For backers choosing a reward with these cards, here's what you get:

  • One set of 12 cards (you will get at least 3 different photographs/designs)
  • 5 x 7 inches offset printed on 16-point card stock with a matte finish
  • Full color photo on cover; blank inside (white)
  • Envelopes (12) included

The new rewards are included in the reward column on the right, but here's the quick summary:

  • $35 One set of 12 greeting cards with envelopes
  • $70 One (1) FORKS book and one set of 12 greeting cards with envelopes
  • $85 One (1) FORKS book, one set of collector edition post cards and one set of 12 greeting cards with envelopes
  • $125 Two (2) Books and One (1) Set Collector Postcards — and one set of 12 greeting cards with envelopes
  • $175 Three (3) Books, and One (1) Set Collector Postcards — and one set of 12 greeting cards with envelopes

All books are signed first-edition copies.

Don't worry. If you back (or already backed) this project with the $250 reward or higher you will receive a set of FORKS custom greeting cards at no charge as a thank you for your generosity and support.

All reward levels $250 and higher will receive a free set of greetings cards IF we hit our $40,000 stretch goal.

Another Project Worth Backing

Now, imagine for a moment traveling from Canada to South America 50+ years ago (1959) two-up on a tiny-displacement (150cc) Lambretta scooter.

In the "Scooter Diaries" Gordon Bowman chronicles the adventure of his parents, then a young Canadian couple with a dream. It's a romantic adventure story that I discovered on Kickstarter about the same time I launched my campaign. I immediately backed Gordon's project.

He is not having the same success as I am with FORKS, so I would love if you'd take a moment and hear Gordon's story and consider supporting his project. He's got just 4 days to go and is still far from reaching his goal. I want to see him reach it and make his book a reality too.

He needs your support. If nothing else, please share his project. 

I thank you.
