Say hello to The Hobby Equipment Organizer, or as we like to call it, THEO! 

We know that staying organized isn't the easiest and not all of us have large enough hobbies areas. So we came up with a solution that not only keeps you organized and saves space, but is also modular so it can grow with you, and mobile allowing you to take your hobby wherever you'd like to go!

Please note, everything comes un-assembled. Be sure to check out the FAQ's for more info regarding assembly and what kind of glues to use.

 ** IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY **  

You probably already noticed that there is only 1 reward level. This is due to the various Cartridge types and possible material combinations. We want you to build the system that YOU want and this gives everyone the flexibility to do just that. And don't worry, we have made it really straightforward and still offer some awesome Kickstarter only deals! 

All you need to do is figure out what you want and then go to our:

Pledge Calculator: https://www.impudentmortal.com/Calculate.html

and it will figure out the pledge amount and shipping weight for you!

  • If you live in the US and pledge for $100 or more, we'll ship your reward for FREE! Pledges under $100 will be billed for shipping once your reward is ready to ship.
  • If you are an international backer we'll bill you for your shipping once your reward is ready. Please see the next section for more info.

KICKSTARTER ONLY DEALS! 

Get FREE Wall Units!

  • For every 4 cartridges you pledge, you can get 1 FREE wall unit. For example, pledge for 12 cartridges and you can have 3 wall units for Free!
  • The wall unit must be the same type of material category (MDF/ Clear, White, Black, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, or Light Blue) as the cartridges. For example, you can't pledge for for MDF cartridges and then request a red acrylic wall unit.
  • To receive this free reward, just enter your pledge amount for the cartridges (and/ or bag) and we'll handle it in the survey once the KS is over.
  • International backers: when you are figuring out your shipping cost please don't forget to include the weight of the wall units.

WE WILL SHIP ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!

Folks, I'm just going to bottom line this for you. International shipping has gotten crazy. In the past, we've tried to average it out among other things, but it just hasn't worked very well. So here's what we are going to do:

Pledge for what you want, and we'll charge you your specific shipping when we are ready to ship your reward to you. Also, we will happily ship multiple pledges to one person, so get your friends together and save BIG on shipping! 

So how much will your shipping cost?

Well, that's going to be on you to get a quote, and here's how you do it.

Go to the US Post Office Postage Price Calculator here: https://postcalc.usps.com/

  • What's the destination Country: Choose where you live.
  • What's the value of the item being mailed: Use your pledge amount.
  • What's the date you plan to mail the item: Leave this as it is (it doesn't matter for the price).
  • What's the Time you Plan to mail the item?: Leave this as it is (it doesn't matter for the price).
  • What Are you Mailing:
  • This is where things get a little tricky so please play close attention here. If you don't want a Wall Unit and you only want 4 or less cartridges with or without a bag, you can also check the price of the "View Flat Rate Boxes." It might (no promises) be less than the package option. If you want a wall unit, half wall unit or 5 or more cartridges you MUST select "Calculate price based on Shape and Size"' and continue to enter the information. Continue to enter the information below, and when it's time for us to ship to you we'll check both prices and use whichever is less.
  • What Unit of Measurement are you using: Select Standard 
  • What is the Weight of your mail piece: Enter the weight from the pledge calculator in the ounces area. 
  • Click on "Package"
  • Enter the from ZIP Code: Use 30519
  • Enter the to Postal Code: Use Your Postal Code
  • Click "Continue"

There's your rate. You can repeat the process to check the difference between the Flat Rate and Package option. Please understand that this will be our best guess (the weight could be a little less or more due to the weight of the packing material and box) and the post office rates might change before we ship (but most likely not), but it should be pretty close.

If you are interested in the Mini Display / Cary Case please read the following.

The current design of the Mini Case has raised a lot of debate within our R&D team. We’ve kicked around a lot of ideas, but instead of trying to figure out what you want, we’ve decided to let just let you tell us!  

So here are the points up for debate and if you have an opinion about this just put them in the comment section, thanks!

1/ Currently the design features 4 shelves that are 2.5 inches in height apart. It was brought up in the design process that it might be better to have slots to allow you to vary the shelf’s heights in 1 inch increments instead. This could be done, but the part that holds the metal shelves would have to be changed from a 1/8 inch thick to a ¼ inch think acrylic and redesigned, and would add somewhere between $15 - $20 to the price of the case. So is added flexability worth the extra money?  

The case would still come with 3 shelves, but you would be able to buy more if you wanted.  

2/ Right now the only the option for the Mini case in clear acrylic. Would you want an MDF version with a clear acrylic removable front plate that would be $10 less in price, and / or would you want these available in the colored acrylics for $10 more?

WALL UNIT $12.50 / $17.50 / $22.50

The Wall Unit measures 22.5 inches in length, a little over 3.25 inches in depth and 11.25 inches in height. The Wall Unit is designed to hold 4 cartridges (4 Horizontal, 4 Vertical, or 2 Horizontal & 2 Vertical) securely on your wall so they are out of your way when you aren't using them. The Wall Unit itself has places for screws so it can be firmly attached to wall studs.

HALF WALL UNIT $7.5 / $12.50 / $17.50   

The Half Wall Unit measures 11.3 inches in length, a little over 3.25 inches in depth and 11.25 inches in height. It is designed to hold 2 cartridges (2 Horizontal or 2 Vertical) securely on your wall so they are out of your way when you aren't using them. The Half Wall Unit itself has places for screws so it can be firmly attached to wall studs.

CARRYING BAG $35

We produce the rewards based on the order of the pledges. If you're the first pledge, your order gets done first. So the sooner you pledge, the sooner you get your reward. It’s just that simple!

Once we have funded and received all the surveys, we'll be able to give a target completion date and rewards will begin to go out in the order they were received. We will also keep you informed on our progress through weekly updates so you'll have a good idea of when you can expect your rewards.

Hey, why aren't  there any Stretch Goals listed here? What's up with that? 

We do things a little different from most projects and we don't have specific Stretch Goals. We like to think we have something a little better- Backer Suggested Add-On's!  It's been our experience that it's better to ask you what you want and develop Add-Ons from there. That way you get what you want, with no need to wait until the project hits (or doesn't) a particular funding number.

So how does this work? Simple, if you have an idea for what other pieces you would like to see in THEO, just write them in the comment section. If you see that someone else has already come up with an idea that you like, just let us know that you think that's a pretty cool idea.  

Once the project gets going a bit (we like to have around 30+ backers), we'll start tabulating the suggestions. We'll take what we think are the top 3 feasible ideas and put them up for you to vote on, and then we'll make it! We'll try to get as many add-on's as we can (it will depend on how long it takes to design them but we'll shoot for at least 3) that you will be able to add to your pledge.

For those of you unfamiliar with us, you can check out our past Kickstarter projects simply by typing "Impudent Mortal" into the Kickstarter search bar. We are happy to say that we have continually delivered our rewards on time. 

Risks and challenges

The risks to this project are minimum. We have the equipment we need and multiple people trained in their use. All of the designs have already been developed and perfected and we have ironed out the kinks with our experience from our previous Kickstarters.

The only real challenge would be if the project goes big, in which case we will order the necessary lasers to handle the increased demand and we'll keep you in the loop on how production is progressing.

In order to keep you informed we put out weekly updates, so if there are any problems you will be aware of them and how we are addressing them.
