Mercorgi Plush Kickstarter Has Two Days Left!

 

 

mercorgi-plush-kickstarter

This Kickstarter project has been an extremely fun and exciting experience! Mercorgi received a tidal wave of support and love from so many people, and we were able to reach 100% funding in just two days!! I recognized so many names from last year’s Merpug Kickstarter, and that just really warmed my heart to see that. On top of the mind-blowing launch, we also surpassed the first Stretch Goal- a Mercorgi enamel pin- and second Stretch Goal- a Norfolk Merdogs coloring book! It’s just been wave after wave of excitement with this project. I’m so happy and grateful right now, I really can’t think straight! 🙂

This past weekend and this week, I’m working on finishing up the artwork for the Mercorgi and Norfolk Merdogs 8×10 art prints that many backers will be receiving with their reward packages 🙂 Here is a work in progress snapshot from yesterday:

The Mercorgi Plush Kickstarter has just two days to go. We JUST reached the second Stretch Goal: a Norfolk Merdogs coloring book! I am really looking forward to making all of the cute artwork for that!! Once I’ve finished all of the artwork, I will be sending it to my printer and ordering a physical proof first to make sure everything looks perfect. When the sample arrives, I will post it here. 🙂

The third Stretch Goal is very close to this one, and it’s for a Merpug enamel pin! I think we can make it!!

If you know any dog and/or mermaid lovers please share! Here is the project link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1781463665/corgi-mermaid-cute-plush-toys The Kickstarter ends this Friday, Aug 26, 2016 at 9:58 AM EDT.

Stats

My heart was beating so fast the entire day! Just five hours from launch, we reached 50% funding. At first, Mercorgi instantly made it to the top of the “What’s Popular?” section of the Crafts page on Kickstarter. Then, it made it to the “Featured Project” in Crafts! I am so honored, excited, and proud to see Mercorgi as the featured project out of 111 craft projects!!

Day 1 finished with 74% funding and as I’m typing this (5:49pm of Day 2) we’re currently at 89%!! Thank you all so much!! I did a Live video on my Facebook earlier today, and I started getting emotional during it! I’m just so grateful for all of the support!!

August 1st marks Day 1 for the Mercorgi Plush Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1781463665/corgi-mermaid-cute-plush-toys

The Early Bird launch happened at 10am this morning, and in just one hour Mercorgi reached 18% funding!! Thank you all so much!! I’ve also recognized so many backer names from the Merpug project, so thank you very much for supporting both Merpug and now Mercorgi! I greatly appreciate it!!

The Mercorgi Plush Kickstarter lasts for 25 days, and I am beyond happy with the success of the launch. It’s given me so much confidence that we’re going to make it! Much Love from Mercorgi and me! <3

Mercorgi Stretch Goals

This is wishful thinking for down the road, but in the huge, extremely exciting event that we surpass full funding for Mercorgi, I’ve come up with some cool additional backer rewards called “Stretch Goals.”

If Mercorgi reaches $6,700 they’ll be able to be made into plush. The first Stretch Goal happens at $8,500. If we reach that goal, then all Backers who pledged $20 or more will receive an awesome Mercorgi enamel pin! So many people have an amazing pin collection, and I would love for Mercorgi to be able to be a part of that, too! 🙂 I’ll reveal the pin artwork as we get closer to the goal.

The second Stretch Goal happens at $10,900. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and have gotten many requests about: a Norfolk Merdogs coloring book! The details are the same as the first goal- All Backers who pledged $20 or more will also receive the coloring book.

For the next few days I’ll be working on the finishing touches of the Kickstarter and prepping for launch on Monday (August 1st) 🙂 For more Mercorgi information and to sign up for an email notification about the launch, go to the Mercorgi Plush Kickstarter page.

Mercorgi Kickstarter Updates

I’m so excited about the Mercorgi Kickstarter launch on Monday! I wanted to share some previews of the project before it launches. 🙂

Even if you aren’t able to back the project monetarily, you have a very powerful tool that can help Mercorgi in a huge way: social media! Sharing the Kickstarter project link with your friends on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. helps spread word about Mercorgi and can lead to the project reaching its goal! 

I’ve also created a Facebook event for the project: https://www.facebook.com/events/675719959262256/ Clicking on “Interested” or “Going” makes the event show up on your friends’ Facebook feed, so I would greatly appreciate it! You can also invite any friends who love corgis, mermaids, or Mercorgis! 🙂

Once the project launches on Monday (August 1st) I will update this post with the project link.

Here are the Reward Tiers that will be available, ranging from $5 to $125. With Kickstarter, you also have the option to pledge any amount you want- even a $1! Every single dollar helps Mercorgi reach its goal!

As with last year’s Kickstarter, I’ll have an Add On Shop available. For any item you’d like to add to your Reward Tier, simply increase your pledge amount equal to the item’s cost. Then, you can either message me about your add-ons through Kickstarter or wait until I send out the Backer Surveys once the project has finished.

What Is Kickstarter?

“Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Every project creator sets their project’s funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers’ credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing.” -Kickstarter.com
