Finalizing the packaging
While we've been very busy preparing for our official debut at CES 2012 next week, we've also been hard at work doing our best to ensure that the Koala Mounts get to you, our backers, as soon as possible when funding ends. An important part of that is figuring out how to package everything.
We've decided to go with what is called blister packaging, which is similar to what 3M's Command strips are currently packaged in, if you are familiar with that. What do you think?
The back of the card will have instructions similar to this (of course all this is subject to change, but these images should be pretty close to the final version):
The Command strips will be packaged neatly right behind the two brackets.
Furthermore, we're currently working on finding alcohol wipes (for cleaning your wall) that will fit nicely behind it all, so that you'll have everything you need to set up your Koala Mount right away with the absolute best adhesion possible. Even if we don't end up including them in the packaging, we'll be including them in the shipments to all of our backers.
We also wanted to let you all know that the Koala Mount will likely be retailing for $20 or more, so if you think you'll want more than one, there's no better time than now. Remember that you can simply add $10 to your pledge for extra mounts (+$12 for international).
So, we hope you'll all help us out in making the Koala Mount a reality by sharing with your friends or tipping your favorite tech site! Every little bit counts!
