Dear Friends, Family, Followers and Good People I am yet to meet,
Hi, and thanks for visiting my crowd funding campaign!
If you're here then you've most likely just read all about the what, why and how that has led to me setting up this campaign, but if not you can check out my story here .
The campaign will start on 1st May 2017 and ends on 1st June.
I'm aiming to raise A$3000 to purchase a water housing for my camera + additional funds to cover the costs of creating, printing and shipping the art works. So I've set the total funding figure at $8000, as better numbers people than me figured out this is what needs to be raised in order to have the right amount left over for the gear once costs are taken out. If more than this is raised any additional funds will be invested into other photography gear.
So you're probably wondering what the rewards are for supporting my campaign...well if you are looking for some nice new art for your home, then you're in luck, as all supporters will receive a piece of ocean inspired Aquart!
All the reward levels are listed here ----------------------------------------------------------------->
I will have 4 products (in a variety of sizes) available for this campaign:
1) Fine Art Prints (Prints)
Want to frame a piece of Aquart yourself? These fine art prints are easy to send anywhere in the world, and have to be seen to be believed…they are really gorgeous!
Printed on Metallic Pearl 250gsm paper, they offer exceptional image clarity and brilliant colours with a high-gloss metallic finish that makes the blues and whites of Aquart images really pop, and they look amazing when mounted in a nice wooden frame.
2) Acrylic Wall Mounts (Wall)
Modern, minimal and sleek, with amazing colours and 3D visual effect, Acrylic Wall Mounts will create a big impression in your home.
Aquart images are first printed onto the same fine art metallic photo paper, and are then mounted to the back of a UV resistant 6mm acrylic sheet, and backed with a white 2mm board to add rigidity, and then attached to an aluminium sub frame to float it from the wall.
Because of the different light penetration and refraction of acrylic glass compared to normal glass, the colours are more brilliant and the image sharper compared to standard glass in a picture frame.
Both the Prints and Wall Mounts come in 6 sizes:
- 12 x 18 inches (30 x 40cm)
- 16 x 24 inches (40 x 60cm)
- 20 x 30 inches (50 x 75cm)
- 24 x 36 inches (60 x 90cm)
- 30 x 45 inches (80 x 120cm)
- 40 x 60 inches (100 x 150cm)
3) Acrylic Photo Blocks (Blocks)
Acrylic Photo Blocks are free-standing items as opposed to acrylic wall mounts which are wall hung.
Aquart images are first printed onto a metallic photo paper and then mounted to a 30mm thick acrylic block, with a thin styrene sheet to protect the back of the picture.
The depth of the acrylic will give your Aquart an amazing 3D look, and the thickness of the block makes it stand securely on your chosen surface.
These art works come in two sizes:
- 6 x 9 inches (15 x 22.5cm)
- 8 x 12 inches (20 x 30cm)
4) Desktop Art
A digital file of an image will be sent to you to use as wallpaper on your computer.
