Crowdsourcing Mornings: A-Maze Me | Custom Hand-Designed Name Mazes

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

For thousands of years people have been fascinated by mazes. The earliest known example being the famous Labyrinth in Ancient Egypt (5000 BC). They’ve shown up in fields, in churches, in movies and on cereal boxes ever since. As a kid they never liked the really easy mazes and they still find the really difficult ones somewhat tedious. What they enjoy about designing these mazes is the challenge of squeezing them into a word-shape while keeping them just difficult enough to be fun.  Almost all kids like mazes but so do many adults, be they on paper or in corn. And who wouldn’t enjoy having a personalized maze to solve or just admire?

Backers receive their finished maze via email as a print ready PDF – so it can be printed on whatever size, color, type of paper you want. There are many options for use and display… Print a stack so the kids can have a maze race or laminate one so it can be done repeatedly with a wet-erase marker.  Printed professionally on quality paper a custom name maze would make a great gift, perfect for hanging in an office or at home.

As of December 22nd, this project has raised $3,500 of their $200 goal. This project has 7 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $5, you will get a thank you maze.  For a pledge of $33, they will create a maze with your initials.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
