I am totally joking about the Bite Me part….
Crowd me, fund me = crowd funding. That’s what ByCo.com is all about-The crowd funding, not the crowding part.
This is for all of the designers out there:
I submitted sketches to ByCo.com and they were approved and posted on the funding page. Once the design is fully funded, the design will go live and be sold in the ByCo shop for a month. They do all the work. They create the patterns, the producing, and do the selling.
The funders who successfully funded a design will receive 10% of sales (based on the amount he/she put in). If the funder successfully funds three designs, then that person will be able to choose an item from the shop, complimentary of ByCo.
I know that you (the designer) know that sampling is super pricey. That was the reason for Patterned After, to provide an outlet. It gives me the creative space to design bespoke pieces with existing or basic patterns (that I make myself) to help on cost.
ByCo.com is another outlet. There is that chance that it never comes to life, but just like Patterned After , you still have the option to make it yourself through an existing or basic pattern.
