Sixteen years ago Oh Boy Artifacts premiered an ambitious line of 64 unique items-notebooks, journals, books of gift wrap and greeting cards, stationery, and other fine paper products-to abundant acclaim and generous patronage. Its legacy and staying power among diehard fans made a good case for rebooting the brand.
Currently, our store stocks fewer than a dozen first editions each of designs from our premiere studio collections-the original Artifact-but our small boutique is elastic, and we intend to test its capacity.
Artifacts is launching its new collection here and on Kickstarter. We will be offering framed lithographs, selections from our new line, the opportunity to commission private labels, and more in kind for your pledges. With your support, a complete and reenvisioned collection will debut in spring 2018
WHAT WE NEED
Rights to Artifacts reverted to Salanitro in 2016 after 11 years under the exclusive management of a notable publisher. Salanitro went to work, gauging interest, putting out the word, building an online store, setting up manufacturing and distribution channels, creating new designs and form factors, and betting the ranch on a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign set to launch late in February. Yet for all the resources we have at the ready, your participation is what makes these efforts count, and each individual's support makes a difference.
Kickstarter is an American public-benefit corporation that maintains a global crowdfunding platform focused on creativity. The company's stated mission is to help bring creative projects to life. Kickstarter has received more than $1.9 billion in pledges from 9.4 million backers to fund 257,000 creative projects to date. Kickstarter traces its roots to the subscription model of arts patronage, where artists would go directly to their audiences to fund their work.
