New stretch target

With the extra money I could explore the possibilities of producing products like clue coasters, a quiz book and homeware to further expand the business.


Introduction

Hello I’m Lucy, welcome to my Crowdfunder page where I am hoping to get enough pre-orders of prints of my picture quizzes to start producing them. Crowdfunding, with the support of Back her Business, seems like the perfect way to see if there is a market for the prints. If we don’t raise enough then a run of prints won’t go ahead and you won’t lose any money (and I won’t end up with boxes of prints that don’t have a home!) If we do raise enough then happy days! Lucy Inglis Illustrations will be in business!

How it all began

I’ve always loved to draw and alongside my various roles as nurse, stage manager, Mum and currently a Pupil Support Assistant, I have kept illustrating on the side, mostly for friends with some commissions. 

When Lockdown started I suddenly found that, in between working from home and supporting two teens in their home learning, I had the time, space and inspiration to really get drawing again. After enjoying a picture quiz on Facebook my youngest suggested that I make my own version. A Football Teams picture quiz for people (like him) who were missing live football during the pandemic, and so Lucy Inglis Quizzes began!

My friends encouraged me to share the quiz on my illustrations Facebook page and to my great surprise it went down well and was shared widely - even by Jason Manford which was surreal! It has reached over 80,000 people on facebook alone and remains my most popular quiz to date. 

Spurred on by the lovely support I received by friends, family and all the new followers on my page I have since made a further 8 quizzes from Wildlife to Musicals. To view all 9 quizzes please see my website https://lucyinglisquizzes.com/ 

My biggest joy of lockdown has been hearing the stories people have shared with me about enjoying doing my quizzes over Video call with friends and loved ones who they couldn’t see in person. It makes me very happy to think I have helped entertain and keep people connected during a global pandemic and all the stress that came with that.

It is very important to me that my quizzes remain accessible to everyone and free to use and share so I will continue posting them online. This crowdfunder is just to raise funds to create quiz products for people to enjoy in their own homes.

The idea

As my quizzes were seen by more and more people I began to get requests for prints, quiz book and other products. Many people thought they would be a fun print to have up in a kitchen or downstairs loo! It would be an absolute dream if I could make a small business out of my love of drawing and creating quizzes. I would hope to initially produce beautiful prints of the quizzes and ultimately produce quiz books, coasters, tea towels and a range of fun products. I’d love you to be a part of the beginning of this business.

Why Crowdfunding?

Back her Business is a NatWest initiative that supports women in business. By crowdfunding I can raise the capital needed to order runs of prints, buy mounts, frames and packaging while taking pre-orders for the prints. This is also a really good way for me to see what prints people would like. With any extra I raise through the sale of some original artwork I can expand the ideas and explore other products plus fulfill my commitment to use eco-friendly packaging for all my products.

Here’s what’s on offer!

As a special offer on this crowdfunder I will cover the postage of any orders within the UK.

I have tried to include a variety of rewards for a range of prices, every reward results in you getting a product (provided the crowdfunder is successful!)
