Access behind the scene content, exclusive merchandise, and more. Sign up using the payment links below for any one of our exclusive membership packages. Perks will be distributed once per calendar year and merchandise designs will be updated on a yearly basis to keep designs fresh.
Disclaimers: this is not a tax-deductable donation and the plan you are signing up for will be in perpetuity, but you have the opportunity to cancel the plan at any time. Since perks are delivered once a year, spread throughout operations, cancelling your membership early (before the end of the one-year mark) gives us the right to request payment if you have already received your perks.
