Made to Order

Only three days left for my Steampunk Art Project on Kickstarter
and I'm only just over the halfway mark.
I'm staying 'positive' that I will reach my goal...
but I decided to make a 
'judgement call'
 "just in case I don't".

If I don't....the Postcards and Greeting Cards
will not be available in my Etsy Shop
until sometime next year.

If I don't...Steampunk Art Jewelry 
may not be available in my Etsy Shop
during the Holiday Season....

I will make 'made to order' Steampunk Art Pendants
available in my
Zibbet Shop.

The reason for Zibbet and not Etsy...?

I only accept PayPal on Zibbet
and I will need the time to create each pendant
as it is ordered.

On that I offer Direct is set up
that I need to ship my items within 3 days and
this is not always possible with made to order jewelry items.
I am currently asking for 10 days from order
to shipping..though it may not take this long..
it will depend on how many orders I have.

If you don't wish to sign up for a Zibbet account...
just message me on Facebook
or email me
and let me know which design you prefer
and I will send an invoice to your email address in PayPal
with the $55.00 price Plus shipping.

About the Rewards for My Steampunk Art Kickstarter Project

I am more than 25% of the way to
my Goal of $1,000 
on  my 

And...I still have 10 days left to reach that goal!

I'm really excited that I decided to do this project.
Even though it 'seems' like I am asking for money...
I'm really not!

Well..I am...but I'm not.
with the 'rewards' backers will get 'something' for
their pledges...but only if the project is successfully funded.
For a $1.00 get a 'thank you' and Shout Out
on my Facebook page.

But...with all the other amounts...
my backers will actually get rewards worth More than the pledge amount...
and Free Shipping to US backers.

Here's the breakdown...

Pledge -
$1.00 = My thank you on my Rustic Goth Facebook page.

$5.00 = One Steampunk Bookmark..One Steampunk Postcard and 
a 'Thank You' on my Facebook page. = (Value = $5.50)

$10.00 = One Steampunk Bookmark...Three Steampunk Postcards and 
a 'Thank You' on my
Facebook page = (Value = $11.50)

$20.00 = One Steampunk Bookmark ...Six Steampunk Postcards or 
Four Steampunk Greeting Cards..
and a Thank You on my Facebook page. 
(Value = $20.50/Postcards or $22.50 for the Greeting Cards.)

$40.00 = One Steampunk Bookmark ...
Four Steampunk Greeting Cards...
Four Steampunk Greeting Cards and 
a Thank You on my Facebook page. (Value = $40.50.)

$50.00 = One piece of Steampunk Art Jewelry 
and a Thank you on my Facebook page.
(Value up to $75.00 ...Backer's Choice.)

$100.00 = Twelve Steampunk Art Postcards...
Ten Greeting Cards..
One Piece of Steampunk Jewelry...
One Bookmark 
and a Thank You on my Facebook page 
and on my Website.
(Value...From $113.50 to $163.50 ... Backer's Choice.)

$250.00 = Twelve Postcards...
Ten Greeting Cards..One Bookmark...
TWO pieces of Steampunk Art Jewelry...
YOU as my newest Steampunk Art Character + 8"x10" Signed Steampunk Art Print 
with You as the Character.
(Value = From $258.00 to $318.00)

The biggest reason I decided to go with Kickstarter was the Rewards.
So I look at this as more of a
"Pre-Order" project.
I really do believe my project will succeed and those orders will
start being fulfilled mid to late October...
there is a delay on receiving the money and I'll have to wait
until I get that to be able to start ordering everything I will need...
thus the reason I only ran this project for 14 days...add another
10 days or so before funding is distributed .

My 'Steampunk' Project on Kickstarter

There was a reason I did a 'survey' on Steampunk Postcards, Greeting Cards and
I wanted to get some feedback before I decided whether or not to
launch my
'Steampunk Art Cards and Jewelry'

I decided to go ahead and 
'go for it'.

I need your help!

I currently make 'almost' enough to pay my bills
with my Etsy Shop so, there really isn't anything
left order to be able to add anything new for the upcoming
Holiday Season.

I frequently get questions concerning postcards, greeting cards and Steampunk jewelry
but the bottom line is...
these things all take enough of an initial investment
that I can't really afford to pay for printing and get all of the
materials and supplies needed to offer enough of a
variety to give my customers and collectors 
something to 'choose' from.

So...anything from $1.00 and up would be greatly appreciated and
a 'plus' for you is...
if the project is not funded...
you won't be charged a penny.

I'm not one to 'ask for help'....I'm really not...
I do believe in this project
the rewards offered for the pledges
are actually a pretty good deal for those who are interested.

And...if you're not interested...
that really is okay too!
But...maybe you could help me out by
recommending the project to someone you think would
be interested in what I am offering.

Thank you so much for considering this project
and for any help
you might be able to offer:)

This is just a sample of what types of Steampunk pendants I would like to
in my Etsy Shop this fall.

Steampunk Postcards and Greeting Cards

I am considering adding 
Steampunk Art
Greeting Cards..
to my Etsy Shop.

The cards would be offered both as..
singles and packs.

The Steampunk Art Jewelry
would feature a small oval or round print
of one of my Steampunk girls
in an ornate setting with an assortment of
steampunk charms, works...etc.

I need your help...
would you purchase
Steampunk Art
greeting cards...
if they were offered?

Please weigh in on this for me...
as I am trying to decide whether or not to
fund these projects.

I'm not looking for a 'commitment to purchase'
but rather...
just an answer to my question.

If you would be SO KIND as to help me out
by answering a couple of questions for me
I promise it will take less than a minute:)


Oh yeah...I'll have a little 'gift' for everyone
who completes the survey for me
and sends me an email address to
Rustic Goth.
