Just over a year ago we did a Kickstarter for Lolo Lids. A lid that snapped on the top of a can and turned just about any paper coffee cup into the ultimate stealth koozie. Lolo Lids was a hit and raised 225% of the original goal and also delivered an awesome product to thousands of satisfied customers over the past year!
Unfortunately several weeks ago we got a cease and desist letter from Solo. What we had thought was a funny parody on an iconic design landed us in some hot water! We never meant any harm, we were just having fun!
So we listened. We are using the re-branding as an opportunity to perfect our lid design and bring more awesome products to life that we've been working on for a while.
Featuring a fully recessed center that accommodates the lips and the nose, providing an experience similar to drinking from a cup, and far superior to a can. The snaps on the bottom also feature a longer lead in so it's easier to snap on while maintaining the long term durability that will keep for thousands of uses.
Uses an air barrier similar to a thermos to keep drinks cold 20% longer than a Koozie.
This is main thing we've been asked for over the past year and the design is done. It is large enough to hold and insulate your drink, yet small enough to fit in your pocket!
And guess what?- The bottom can be frozen to chill down drinks!
Fill to the line and freeze!
Be one of the first to order a Trinken Lid and we'll deliver for Christmas.

Risks and challenges
This is our 2nd Kickstarter project and we've learned a lot. We are working with the same manufacturer from Lolo Lids, who produced a very high quality product. 99% of the tooling design is done and most technical parts have been ironed out; we just need the funds to complete.
The Collapsible Cup, and Deep Freeze are where all our challenges for the project sit. We've got great designs, but are going to focus on creating a perfect product before we ship. A great part about the Kickstarter is we'll be looking to you for say in what's your favourite final designs. We will take you through each step of the process including the struggles and the wins! After all isn't that what Kickstarter is about?
In short we know what we are doing, and you should be confident that we will deliver what we say we will, when we say we will. Should any unforeseen issue arise, rest assured that we will handle them and ensure you are informed throughout the process. We appreciate the support and trust backers have placed in us and it is something that we care deeply about.
One thing we've learnt after designing our first products is that no matter what problems are presented there is always a solution. We always work hard to find the answers and the solutions that work.
We have also started the tooling process to ensure we could hit Christmas delivery for the first Lid buyers. Everything else will arrive shortly afterwards in the new year.
Kickstarter holds a special place for us as it is where we got our start. This is why we wanted to launch Trinken on Kickstarter and give everyone an opportunity to support our next adventure.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
