Help me Kickstart my poster plz :)

Postby benduerksen » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:07 pm

There've never been enough cool posters floating around for just the sake of their own sake. I've been working on this for about 2 years:

Now, I was planning to print this with my own money back when I had enough, but I had to finish it first. When I was done, that money was mostly gone, so since this is the internet age, I decided to put up a Kickstarter which can be seen here:

Any money you choose to give would be BIG help for me, and I think for getting a unique product out there at a cheap price. Thanks!

Your poster is really good. Have you considered on demand printing rather than paying out of pocket? That would be a good way to sell some posters and make some money. Once you raise enough, then you could consider buying all of the prints through a printing press and selling them on your own.

I tried with Zazzle and CafePress, but I find both of their interfaces infuriating, and their price estimates too high with too much of a percentage going to them. By the time I set my rates to make enough money for myself, the sites cranked the price of the whole thing up to $40 per poster. Kickstarter's a much more user-friendly way to raise that money without a pointless middleman taking way too much from the whole thing. There's a fixed-rate fee that's nothing in comparison.

I didn't realize that one could get a poster with a minimum pledge of $10. Now it makes more sense.

Your work is very good. Do you have more?

Ben, let me start off by saying, your images are exciting, colorful and skillfully rendered.
I hate to suggest this but have you read up on stack rank marketing? As I was
saying to the Limo guys, it's all about marketing and being noticed.
You have to be click-accessible on the very first page of any internet search.
Here are a couple of links to peruse if you're interested - buddymedia.com and
convergeconsulting.org. Read up and lemme know what you think! 'Best, ehoeveler
