The story 

Four Dutch students had the idea for the StackUp a few years ago and made a simple wooden prototype. Macek Technika redesigned the product for injection molding so the StackUp could be made in large quantities for an attractive price. 

Prototyping 

We made several prototypes for testing the different sizes of preformed potato chips and Ilse, our product designer, almost got crazy by measuring hundreds of preformed chips. Developing a good functional product takes time and needs patience !!

Bring it to the market

Because everyone was enthusiastic about the StackUp our director went to Geneva in October 2012 to present the product to the biggest manufacturer of preformed potato chips in the world. Also these people were absolutely thrilled about the product, but after a few months they decided not to invest in the StackUp because they had no budget for this at that time. We had to find another way to bring the StackUp to the world. Because Kickstarter was launched in the Netherlands in April 2014 we decided to present the StackUp on Kickstarter.

Investment

Kickstarter is the ideal platform to bring products, that require a large investment, to the market and make it available for you! So what about the money? The funding will be used for: 

  • Costs of production tooling for injection molding the StackUp. See Wikipedia for more info on this process: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Injection_molding 
  • Costs of manufacturing the StackUp 
  • Packaging and shipping costs 
  • Kickstarter costs 

A Vase2 for free!

Because we want to make a success out of the StackUp we contacted one of our clients, Paul Baars Design, from Amsterdam, for his support. Paul Baars is a well-known product designer in the Netherlands and we manufacture several products from him. The Vase2, a unique design vase with mathematical conical shapes, can be used on both sides so that you can choose for the small or larger vase to use. See the image below for more details. 

Paul Baars has given us permission to produce the Vase2 exclusively for the StackUp project. The Vase2, which is also sold in design museums and gift shops, has a retail value of €25,95 each. Now it’s for free!

As you can see we ship all rewards before Christmas. So you can give it also as a present to anyone!

Risks and challenges

Keep in mind that there are always issues that can arise, such as fine tuning the injection mold or optimising the product.

We are committed to make the StackUp both fantastic in form and function.
