Scratch-off stationery

here today scratch off stationery millie rossman

Fun: local designer Millie Rossman is raising money on Kickstarter for a line of scratch-off stationery. You know, it's sort of like a scratch-off lottery ticket -- but instead of disappointment, you end up a delightful little message.

As she explains at the project page:

The notecard is actually a card within a card.The 4" x 5" outer card is die-cut to hold a smaller, thicker card. One side of the smaller card features original art by the pattern-designer, Jessica Swift. The other side is a solid color with a rectangle of gold foil in the center. Scratch off the gold foil to reveal a message. When the message is revealed, the card becomes a lovely keepsake to keep on your desk or tuck in your wallet. The outer card is made from fine-quality Mohawk uncoated cover paper stock. The smaller card is 4-color print on heavy coated cardstock with a velvety-feeling matte varnish.

The project is a little more than halfway to its $3,000 funding goal with five days remaining.

While we're Kickstarting... Another local project that caught our eye today was "The Original BarBack Multi-Tool '9 Beverage Tools in 1'" by Dennis Oakley -- the tool sort of looks like a Swiss army knife for bartenders. It's about halfway to its goal of $15k with 9 days to go.


Thanks so much for posting my project, Greg and Mary! Happy 4th birthday to AOA!

And good luck getting to your goal, Dennis. The bartending tool looks very handy.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!

Good places for a large company picnic?
