The Pentium Planner Wallet is the pocket-sized, 3-in-1 product that keeps your day organized, your tasks prioritized, and your pockets simplified. To put it briefly, the Pentium Planner Wallet functions as a daily planner, a notebook, and a wallet!
The Wallet features are located inside of the back cover of the Pentium Planner Wallet. There are two RFID-blocking sleeves that can hold the important cards you use every day (between 4 and 6 total) as well as a dual-compartment collapsible pocket that lets you separate your cash and business cards. An elastic band wraps around the exterior of the wallet for extra security to make sure your cash and cards stay safe and secure inside!
Lined Note Pages make up the last 35 pages of the planner, perfect for jotting down notes in meetings or making room for notes that didn't fit on a daily page. There are also two bookmarks built into the binding that allow you to mark your current day in the planner as well as your current location in the lined pages!
The Quarterly Planner has four unique page layouts. A two-page monthly layout begins each month, and has room for the user to pick two Daily Duties that they want to accomplish throughout the month. 31 individual day pages follow with a 12-hour schedule, a bulleted To-Do list, two check boxes for your Daily Duties, and some free space at the bottom for notes or doodling. At the end of each month, there is an Accomplishments page for you to right down the big events and achievements of the past month!
As a college student, I learned that I
desperately needed to have better time management and planning skills. So I began looking for a
portable daily planner that would help me focus on one day at a time and also
give me an overview of the month when necessary. However, almost everything
that I found was either too bulky or poorly formatted. At the end of my search,
I was left empty-handed and disappointed.
Instead of just settling for an imperfect
alternative, I decided create my own solution. I purchased a blank,
pocket-sized notebook and developed my own layout for each page, with two specific
pages for each month and day. After using my invention for a few weeks, I began
to consider combining the two things that I carried in my back pockets
every day: my wallet and my pocket-sized planner. After all, my wallet was overloaded
with stuff I hardly ever needed. So, I merged my wallet with my new planner.
Because my planner was now so accessible, I found myself
using it more frequently and accomplishing more important things with my time. Not
only was I achieving better productivity with my time, but I was also able to
free up more time to do the things I cared most about! And to top it off, the
simplified wallet design helped me eliminate my bulky wallet and minimize what I carried in my pockets every day.
After receiving a
noticeable number of compliments and questions about my planner wallet, I began
to wonder if I could share my product and the value it adds with others. So
after plenty of design iterations, product trials, and open doors, we’re here
to bring you the first Pentium Planner Wallet.
Now here is where you come in! We need to raise $4,000 to purchase our inventory at an affordable cost and cover shipping expenses, and $1,000 to offset various business expenses. With your help, we hope to meet our funding goal and bring the Pentium Planner Wallet to life!
Q.) How big is the Pentium Planner Wallet?
A.) The planner is 5" tall x 3.5" long x 0.5" wide.
It is a comparable size to your smartphone, and we have designed it to easily
fit into your pockets!
Q.) What type of material is the notebook made out of?
A.) The cover of the Pentium Planner Wallet is composite leather,
which will make it appealing to the eye and also give it a lot of durability.
Q.) How long does one Planner last?
A.) Each Pentium Planner Wallet is quarterly, so it has 3 months
worth of planner pages. We chose this specific amount of time so that we could
keep the side profile slim, incorporate the notebook pages, and ensure the durability of our product!
Q.) How do the cards stay safe in the Planner?
A.) The RFID protective sleeves inside the back cover protect the your cards by blocking the radio waves transmitted by a potential identity
thief to steal your credit card information. Also, the elastic band that wraps
around the exterior of the product will help keep all of your wallet contents
Q.) Why is shipping being collected after the campaign?
A.) We are collecting shipping for rewards after the campaign to ensure the lowest cost for our backers by their location! Traditionally on Kickstarter, funds paid by backers for shipping are actually included in the funding goal, so by collecting these funds afterwards, our funding goal won't be diluted with shipping fares.

Risks and challenges
There are several significant risks and challenges that face our project, but we will do everything we can to mitigate those risks and overcome those challenges!
The general challenge that we (and so many other small businesses face) is developing a solid cycle of sourcing materials, manufacturing the product, storing the inventory, and fulfilling orders. Thankfully, we have partnered with Prouduct, a company that assists entrepreneurs and startups with developing their factors of production to establish reliable supply-chain success. With their invaluable assistance, we have found a great manufacturer and shipping partner who will help us fulfill our orders!
In terms of order fulfillment, we have given ourselves and our manufacturer a conservative window of time to deliver our products to our invaluable backers, though we hope to deliver our rewards much sooner than July of 2017 (this is the date that the rewards are set to be delivered to backers).
We have also been very careful to protect the profit margins for our rewards, so that in the event of a unforeseen hike in cost of goods or some sort of shipping dilemma, we can still purchase inventory and fulfill orders with no additional cost to our customers.
