The story of FIN
In the 21st Century, everything is merging together into one device, the smartphone. So we set out to design the FIN case we wanted to merge the iPhone with the wallet in a unique way that truly matches our modern fast-paced lifestyle. Not satisfied with the current wallet cases out there, we completely re-imagined the way we carry for the 21st century.
By merging your phone with your wallet, the FIN sleeve allows you to carry your most important essentials in just one device.
We hate thick iPhone cases and wallets. It has been our goal ever since we started to make the FIN case as thin as possible while providing the most functionality.
The FIN case will save you time by never having to rummage through your wallet. When you spend less time going through your wallet, you can enjoy the more important things in life.
How We Made It:
Eight months ago we began with a vision for the FIN case. We started from sketching our idea on the edges of class notebooks, and soon after moved toward 3D Printing to make our vision a reality. By working at TechShop and developing a relationship with Type A Machines, we were able to borrow a 3D Printer to work full time on product development.
Utilizing Fictiv, a network of 3D Printers within the Bay Area, we developed significant quantities of our market ready prototype over the course of several weeks.
We began selling the 3D Printed FIN Case at local boutiques on Haight street, San Francisco, as well as on-campus at the University of San Francisco. This validated the interest in our product locally, and now we are ready to bring it full scale.
Production Plan - Made in California:
FIN has partnered with a local manufacturer in California who can provide us with the necessary molding expertise to ensure a high-quality polycarbonate FIN case. Our manufacturer has over 40 years experience in mold injection and specializes in creating medical-grade quality equipment.
Our goal is to raise $22,000, which will cover the costs for the mold and first production run. As soon as the mold is completed and approved we will begin pre-production testing for the following 4-5 weeks. This will include testing out various adhesive elastic bands for the FIN sleeve as well as any other final design iterations before going into full production. Once we are satisfied with the finalized design we will begin the production process and start shipping the FIN cases out to all our backers.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our biggest risk is going to be the tooling process to produce our injection molded parts. We have a strict timeline with our manufacturer who has over 40 years of tooling and molding experience. However, delays could occur in tooling preparation due to the specialisation of the product and the fact that we wish to keep manufacturing in the US. We have contingency plans in place in case such a delay does occur. The FIN team has accounted for unforeseen errors and we are confident to overcome any obstacle.
If any problems do occur we will communicate with both our backers and our manufacturer throughout the campaign to ensure the fulfillment timeline.
For now yes, but we are developing the FIN case for the iPhone 4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy S4.
The slider is designed to hold just one card, and the sleeve is designed to hold at least 2 cards and extra cash.
You can track your iPhone using the app "Find My iPhone", but you can't track your wallet.
Nope, that's a myth, the iPhone does not carry any magnets that are powerful enough to demagnetize your card
At the point we are at right now, we can only offer the color Black. However, we have stretch goals in place that will allow us to explore colors
