THE WORLDS BEST WINE STOPPER!

Thank you so much for funding WINE CONDOMS.  Please visit our NEW site on Shopify to continue ordering "The Worlds Best Bottle Stopper" here: http://wine-condoms.myshopify.com/

Works great on beer bottles too!

WINE CONDOMS: "The ultimate protection for wine lovers!"

They say "necessity is the mother of all inventions"

...in our case, it just took a mother with a sense of humor!

WINE CONDOM(s) are FUNNY and an obvious conversation starter at any party or gathering among friends.

...but on  the PRACTICAL side it offers some real advantages to the status quo wine stopper.

1. REFRIGERATOR STORAGE

WINE CONDOM(s) sit flush with the rim of the bottle. Most wine stoppers on the market sit 1/2- 2 inches (or more) above the wine bottle rim.  The added height causes the following storage syndrome:

"Pain-In-The-Ass-Leans-To-The-Side-Which-Never-Quite-Fits-In-The-Refrigerator-Syndrome." 

WINE CONDOM(s) provide effortless refrigerator shelf and/or door storage.

2.  ON-THE-GO PROTECTION

WINE CONDOM(s) stow comfortably in your pocket (or wallet..he he)

Pack and take 'em  ANYWHERE!

WINE CONDOM(s) allow you to more easily enjoy your favorite bottled beverage at the Lake, Concert, Campgrounds, or Stadium.   

3.  100% DISPOSABLE

WINE CONDOM(s) can be thrown away after use..  You wouldn't expect to use, wash, then re-use a drinking straw - neither should you have to do this with your wine stopper.

WINE CONDOM(s) are convenient, disposable, and HILARIOUS!

THE JOURNEY

Brainstorming the idea of WINE CONDOMs was the just the beginning. Next up- creating one.  Initially I thought of contacting a condom manufacturer, however, I quickly decided against it.  Condoms would be too thin and transparent. "I like making people laugh not vomit!" 

I quickly switched gears and found a rubber manufacturer tailored to the food industry who could make a prototype to fit my exacting specifications.  It was PERFECT!  With the product out of the way, I contacted a good friend of mine to collaborate on the logo and packaging.  Like the product, it too needed to be playful not gross.

I've always admired the elegant design of wood cigar boxes, however, in this case - it seemed a tad bit too pretentious. The decision soon became clear.  I needed  a simple display box that would showcase the playful WINE CONDOM logo. At this point, I've spent all my funds on a bulk order of WINE CONDOMs which prevents me from being able to meet the minimum order required for packaging (5,000).  This is where you lovely people come in!

 SO HERE'S THE GAME PLAN

Once funded, I'll begin the process for creating the packaging! I'll submit my artwork and begin working with a design department.  Since I've already invested in the bulk purchase of the actual WINE CONDOM product- that part is already taken care of With packaging in the works, Its on to the other awesome rewards: sunglasses, t-shirts, hoodies, Etc. I will purchase my KickStarter rewards during the 2 week turnaround for the packaging.  After the boxes ship I'll be spending my time with a couple friends in my lovely garage putting the packages together.  I feel completely confident in my ability to see this company through in the time frame I've created.  I've had many earlier entrepreneurial experiences that have taught me a lot about things to avoid, and things to pay attention to, and most importantly, to Never give up!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The KickStarter community has the amazing ability to turn ideas into reality. Wine Condoms is the result of a year of research + almost non-stop fits of laughter and we’re excited to get the ball rolling. We need your support to launch the most unique and silly wine stopper ever invented. At this time, we are working with a rubber manufacturer which is making our wine condom to exact size specifications. In addition, we are working with a manufacturer to create the packaging. KickStarter funds will allow us to meet the packaging manufacturer's minimum quantity requirements, which at this time is cost prohibitive. Barring any shipping delays or packaging design delays-- we should be set to deliver your rewards in the allotted time frame.
