Anyone trying to raise money for a Kickstarter project knows that it is critical to make a good (or funny!) first impression, with, say, a bold cheeseburger-style set of wrapping papers for instance.
From its creators: “We created this project to launch Gift Couture, a creative and innovative wrapping paper company. Gift Couture will offer high-quality wrapping paper sets that feature original photography and design. Our main goal is to produce unique papers that coordinate together into conceptualized themes and sets.”
Hence, of course, this first series of five papers covering top and bottom buns, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes so your under-the-tree stack this year can make a mouth-watering statement.
With three weeks to go, these New York designers are already past their target fundraising goal needed to print 1,000 sheets of each design – lucky supporters will get free copies and some will get a cute (or is it straight-up kitsch?) little golden hamburger trophy, too.
“In order to print this initial set, we need to order a minimum quantity of 1,000 sheets of each wrapping paper design. We’re excited to hear the feedback of Kickstarter, and are extremely hopeful we’ll be able to make our dream a reality!”
“Our funding goal includes the cost of printing and packaging this inital line of wrapping papers and the cost of shipping the sets out to backers. Once produced, we will begin the process of distributing to everyone who supported us, sending promotional sets to retailers and opening our online store at giftcouture.com. Funding will also encourage and enable us to release additional coordinated sets, which will be available online and through retail partners.”
Additional designs include steak and pizza box wrapping paper. If there’s one caveat to this — it’s that your gift had better be good! Don’t entice someone with so much deliciousness and then let them down.
