About this project

The Big Picture

 

What you should know about The Acrylet™:

  • Made in the USA
  • Sustainable Design
  • Modern Style
  • Minimalist
  • Slim Profile
  • Great Rewards
  • Fully Custom Designs Available 
  • Durable and Sturdy 
  • Laser Cut

The Acrylet™ is a new line of amazing, modern, and minimalist wallet solutions. Derived from a sustainable acrylic made from pre-consumer recycled acrylic. The wallet measures 4.00" x 2.25" x .0125". The Acrylet™ is shipped in a burlap bag that is biodegradable and recyclable.  We have taken full advantage of exciting new technologies, including computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines from mills to laser cutters, to create something that's not available anywhere else: The Acrylet™ minimalist wallets are highly detailed with a modern take.

The Acrylet™ is made by the husband and wife team consisting of Lindsey and Jeffrey Michaelree. Who run a small company, Cut and Burn™. We are striving to make the most modern designed products using sustainable materials ranging from acrylic made up of pre-consumer waste. As design students we were exposed to a variety of methods to bring a product to the masses. Having decided to keep up with a modern design we chose to use computer numerical control (CNC) methods of production including CNC Milling and Laser Cutters, which are used to create The Acrylet™.

These pieces look beautiful with modern style, unique design, and are fully customizable. An array of color options and personal engraving  is available to make each one have a personal touch. (Up to 10 Letter) Add $7 to reward option. Please choose from the following fonts - Arial Narrow, Century Gothic, City Blueprint, Franklin Gothic Book, Graphite Standard, Stencil. Please note in with reward which font and what you would like it to say.

We need your help Kickstarter to make The Acrylet™ cost effective for production.  Currently we are only able to purchase small batches of the sustainable acrylic material we need to create The Acrylet™. We are renting space on a local laser cutter to produce each and every version of The Acrylet™. We need the funds to buy all the sustainable acrylic material in bulk to make this an affordable product for everyone to enjoy. We need to raise enough through this campaign to buy our own laser cutter. That way we can keep producing and creating new and exciting products for everyone in the future.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing - we have confirmed price and delivery ability with a our suppliers and have everything in place to meet delivery. The most important thing: THE PROTOTYPES ARE MADE. We know we are able to create The Acrylet™ with a fast turn around time and will have all orders out by the expected shipping dates.

Complexity of order fulfilment - everyone knows that Kickstarter projects have had issues fulfilling orders on time. As a first production run, there are always unexpected issues that could arise. To manage these risks, we have consulted with other experienced designers and product buyers to ensure that we have considered all the potential delays.. We want to match or beat our scheduled delivery date.

Product adjustments - as we continue to test and trial the ACRYLET we may need to make some small adjustments to improve the product. These will always be for the benefit of you, the user - and we'll let you know any time we improve something.

Customs - Kickstarter campaigns regularly fulfill orders worldwide without any issues, and we expect this to be the case with ours, too. However we don't pretend to have intimate customs knowledge of the entire world. We'll work hard to avoid your rewards getting held up at customs, but in the end we can't guarantee you won't experience delays or be charged. There's always a risk (just like stepping out your front door in the morning).

There will no doubt be some twists and turns in the road ahead, but with your help, we'll all arrive at our respective destinations faster, happier, and more productive.

If you would like to donate, any amount helps - head back up to the top of the page, and look for the big green 'Back This Project' button on the right-hand side.

Thank You and Have a Positive Day!
