The ALLIN was developed one evening while watching poker on television (and working on my laptop Anne). There was a large pot in play and the player spilled his drink all over the poker table and ... WALLA!... my light bulb moment ensued.
I immediately began a search on Google to see if the product was on the market and to my surprise, it was not. I them proceeded to do an online Patent Search and once again found nothing even close...
The next day I began to design a CAD model of my first design...and produced a printed FDM model on my 3D printer...
From there it was just a matter of time to workout the kinks, file for a patent and build tooling.
After a few prototype tweaks and some late nights, the production ALLIN is ready to save dinning room tables from those game busting spills every where!
What am I trying to do...?
I am looking to pre-sell product to fund my 1st production run and the modification of our Flat Bed Inkjet printer to customize your cup holders.
The Flat Bed Inkjet modification will allow me to custom print full color graphics on the 4 vertical panels like those shown here...
CUSTOM BRANDING OPTION
The four vertical panels of the cup holder are the perfect spot for custom printing of just about anything.
All rewards come WITHOUT any printing. The custom printing option would be an add-on when you select your reward. The additional cost to custom brand you Poker Chip Cup Holder is as follows:
- MASTERING FEE - $15.00 This fee covers the cost to take your image and prepare it for printing. This includes, sizing, placement, masking and removal of backgrounds and any additional cleanup.
- ADDITIONAL COST PER CUP HOLDER - $2.00 This covers the cost of the loading of the Cup Holders to the printer and running the print cycle. The print cycle includes indexing the cup holders to each of the 4 panel locations.
Example of Custom Printing Add On charge
Any color graphic is OK so be creative and create your own super cool custom Poker Chip Cup Holder.
Since I do not have the license to print copy righted images, it is up to you to send me the image file for printing. Any color including full color graphics are OK. You will receive instructions for providing the image at the end of the campaign... its really very simple so just follow the instructions provided on the survey at the end of the campaign.
The general image size and placement specifications are as shown here.
For Clear Color Cup Holders please add $1.00 each. For example, if you select reward #2 you would add $4.00 to your pledge.
If you want to stay with White or Black, you will simply pledge the reward as listed and you will be asked what color (Black or White) at the end of the campaign.
Project Related Expenses
This is the printer we will be using to customize your cup holders... I need to modify the print platen to allow for the 6" diameter of the cup holder. Currently the machine only accepts a 3.5" thick part. This modification will cost approx $6,000. In addition, I will have to build a 4 up fixture to hold the cup holders during the printing process. I will attempt to automate this process but will manually index the parts if need be. The cost for this will be approx $2,500
This is my second Kickstarter campaign and I really look forward to getting this product on the market. Time has a way of slipping by and Kickstarter has been a great venue for helping me truly Kick Start my products after years of development. I am excited for all the new entrepreneurs and creators out there and cant wait to see what everyone else is coming up with. I have also committed to supporting other creators by re-investing 5% profits made by supporting new Kickstarter campaigns.
I know you will love the Poker Chip Cup Holder and don't forget... they make the PERFECT gift because you know they won't have on of these!
Thanks in advance for your support - Jeff
Risks and challenges
The biggest risks and challenges to the completion of the rewards offered here will relate to the volume of pledges made during the campaign. If I receive pledges covering the minimum funds goal and even 2 to 3 times that amount, I will have no problem fulfilling the non printed Cup holders in time for Christmas.
The bottle neck will be the printing of custom cup holders and based on volume, I may no be able to ship all custom printed products in time for Christmas although I will do everything in my power to do so.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
