About this project
Risks and challenges
The risks are few. We’ve already invested in a single cavity steel tool to provide us with the authentic production samples from a top rated supplier. These are shown in the video and photos. These have been rigorously tested. The supplier can complete multi cavity tooling in less than 14 days and can provide 5000 parts in an additional two weeks. The packaging comes from a 3rd party supplier that will deliver packaging to the parts supplier so that they can package the product into boxed sets of four.
We’ve limited the Holiday Reward level to just 450 sets (1800 individual parts) so that if there are any hiccups or delays we can air freight this small quantity to fulfill our backers rewards at the Early Bird Holiday Level before December 24th . If things go very smoothly we may be able to deliver more rewards before the holiday. We will keep backers updated with our progress.
I’ve been designing and managing product development for over 25 years and I’ve worked very closely with both domestic and overseas suppliers creating some very complex projects. OMNI Trivets is a straightforward very simple product to produce.
There are of course certain elements that are out of our control: weather, worker strikes and things of this nature.
We are very confident in our ability to bring this project to fruition and fullfill our backers rewards.
Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We’ve had many requests for multiple sets. Kickstarter has recently implemented a new rule that prevents projects from offering multiple sets as rewards in the official rewards list. If you’re interested in multiple sets please send us a message and we’ll see what we can do.
