Artemis BJJ Grapplethon 2020

*** UPDATE 15th March 2020 ***
The Phone case sale was a great success.
During the whole of February 2020 I offered to the public phone cases featuring Meerkatsu artworks. Each phone case sale yielded a profit margin of $13.50.
Total phone case sales = 48
Total funds raised from sales = $648 USD
Estimated payment in GBP (4th March rate = 0.78 pounds to one dollar) £505.74
Payment date will be 15th April. I will pay an advance of £350 from my own money and then pay the remainder on the 15th April.

Other stats:
Most sales by country: USA (22), UK (11), Germany (5), other countries all had one sale per territory including Brunei of all places, yay go team small nations.
Best selling design: shark surfing turtle (14),  Kimura (6), toehold (5), Unicorns (5), Wristlock (4), all other designs 3 or less.

As of 15th March, the total funds raised by all the fundraisers of Artemis Grapplethon 2020 is £2,886.93

Original post...

Once a year I raise funds towards the Artemis BJJ Bristol Grapplethon fundraising event. This year the Grapplethon will be raising funds for the Refugee Women of Bristol. You can read more information about the event here.

Just like last year, I will be offering strictly limited edition artwork as phone case designs.
BUY THESE DESIGNS HERE. The campaign will end 7th March, which coincides with the beginning of the Grapplethon event.

Who are Fine Art America? Fine Art America (FAA) are US based but operate world wide (actually printing is outsourced to a company in your territory). They are probably the biggest print-on-demand company in the world.

What phone models? iPhones: 5c, 5, 5s, 6, 6Plus, 6s, 6sPlus, 7, 7Plus, 8, 8Plus, X, XR, XS, XS Max, 11, 11Pro, 11ProMax, Samsung: Galaxy S4, S5, S6, S7, S8 Sorry other brand phones are not supported by FAA.

What’s the difference between slim and tough? Slim is a nice tight fit but I don't think it'll protect your phone as much as the toughened model when dropped on the floor. The tough model is thicker and bit more chunky. The printing quality appears the same on either version.

Why are they limited? These designs are among my artistic pride and joy. In the past these designs have appeared on rashguards, many of which have long sold out, so they’re rare. Some have also been available as limited edition prints for previous fundraisers. To ensure the exclusive appeal I’m limiting the sale to just one month (ends 7th March).

Why are they so expensive? I have put a £10GBP (approx $13USD) mark up on each phone case. Every penny of this will go towards charity. This does not include the shipping costs.

When will I get mine? Depends on your local set-up but I got mine in about 4 working days.

Can I get last year's designs? Yes, I've included last year's designs too.

Since you don't offer cases for my (Huawei, Pixel, Nokia, One2One, Sony, Motorola etc etc...) can you do stickers instead?
I won't offer stickers unfortunately. I can't justify asking for £25ish ($35ish) for a cheap sticker. This campaign is intended to raise funds for charity but also offer to you a mobile phone case that is a sturdy and robust limited edition product worth paying for.

Buy my limited edition phone case designs here!
The campaign closes 7th March so don't delay and help a good cause out at the same time!

Thank you everyone!
