Are you ever faced with a wall of greeting cards, but none of them seem to say exactly what you want to say? Nerdy Words are the perfect way to celebrate science nerdiness and this is ourBIGGEST Kickstarter campaign yet! We have incorporated a number of disciplines including physics, molecular biology, statistics, computer science and chemistry into this “all occasion” greeting card line. We are running this campaign a little differently… you can pick and choose any cards you like! These cards retail for $5.99 CAD, so take advantage of the exclusive Kickstarter card packs in our higher reward tiers (and incidentally it is also a good time to take advantage of our rather low Canadian dollar!). Stock up on your greeting cards/gifts and be prepared for Christmas 2015 and all of your 2016 occasions (graduations, baby showers, weddings, retirement and more!).
These cards and the materials we package/ship them with are eco-friendly too! By backing this project, you are helping to launch a set of greeting cards that you just can’t find in stores.
The funding will primarily go towards the professional printing costs associated with the first run of cards. The cards will be printed as soon as the campaign is completed (estimated time for printing is 6-10 days) and every effort will be made to have these cards mailed immediately so you should expect to see your cards in the mail by the end of November or early December 2015.
We did our research! Great care was taken to source environmentally responsible materials, without compromising on card quality. After good experiences with our suppliers from our first two campaigns, we are ready to order again! The cards measure 4 ¼”X 5 ½” (108 mm X 140 mm) and will be printed on 100% recycled & biodegradable material. The envelopes are standard white A2 envelopes made with 100% recycled paper (see below for more details about the eco-friendly aspects of these cards).

We have taken careful consideration to source environmentally responsible materials for our products. The cards will be printed on 100% Recycled/Uncoated cardstock (aka not glossy). The envelopes are Green Seal Certified and made from 100% recycled Post-Consumer Waste. The cards will be packaged in compostable cello bags that are made from plants! The shipping material will be made with recycled content as well (biodegradable bubble mailers, 100% recycled envelopes).

Risks and challenges
We have carried out a similar campaign before, and we plan on using the same printers/manufacturers so we do not foresee any issues there.
As far as the timeline goes, we should be able to get all of the cards to you before Christmas! If there are any delays with the one printer, we have a backup company selected.
