I am an independent music creator in England. You can read more about me here.
I designed this poster for my upcoming gig at The King Arthur in May, and in addition to the digital ones I'm using for advertising, I would like to have a small batch of them printed using traditional screen printing techniques, because I love the concept of gig posters as lasting art objects.
The end result will be a gorgeous hand signed and numbered collectible piece of art to decorate your wall, ceiling, or spacecraft!
The production run if the funding target is reached will be at least 25 pieces if the target is reached, and limited to an absolute maximum of 75 posters. The actual number produced beyond 25 pieces will depend on how much funding is received and the exact cost of production.
The ink colours used on the final piece will be different from this picture (which is art created for digital printing that I will be modifying for screen printing use), depending on what is available from the screen printer and what I ultimately decide. Will update with further details as soon as I make a final decision on which printer and exactly what inks to use. I've narrowed it down to a short list of printers, and will be using the next few weeks to view samples and discuss options so that everything is ready to go by the project deadline.
Those who pledge at least £30 will receive a finished poster, shipped in a tube anywhere in the world (see below for details). All physical (non-download) rewards will be sent out as soon as possible, and will include a hand-written thank you note!
I plan to sell any remaining posters that are not given out as rewards at the gig, and any money earned from those sales (and any extra funds that don't get spent on postage mailing out rewards, if there is anything left) will go towards helping me produce more new music like this.
Since this was a last-minute idea, and I need to allow ample time for printing before the gig, we only have four weeks to make this happen. I hope you can help me realise this project!
