Why we need you:

Your pledge will go directly towards the startup and first production costs of Coostr. Shipping and fulfillment also add to these costs and quickly becomes a pricey venture to take on alone.

By pledging just $14 or more, you can be one of the first to adopt Coostr into your household. We hope that you please join us on this exciting journey, and help Dom deliver you the most FUNctional table-top trinkets.

How Kickstarter works:

Referenced from Kickstarters info page.

Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.

Thousands of creative projects are funding on Kickstarter at any given moment. Each project is independently created and crafted by the person behind it. The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control and responsibility over their projects. They spend weeks building their project pages, shooting their videos, and brainstorming what rewards to offer backers. When they're ready, creators launch their project and share it with their community.

Every project creator sets their project's funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers' credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing.

Backing a project is more than just giving someone money, it's supporting their dream to create something that they want to see exist in the world.

Risks and challenges

This is Dominick’s first attempt at launching a Kickstarter project…and he’s very excited! Having worked freelance for the past 7 years as a concept sketch artist, 3-D modeler, and product designer, he has gained a full working knowledge of the design process and what’s involved in bringing a product to market. Steel tooling and injection molding can be a tricky business, and are quite expensive. Upon a successful Kickstarter campaign Dominick plans on using the funds to begin the process of cutting the molds for final production and first-run of Coostr turtles. Coostr is a home-grown project that will remain in the USA for manufacturing. The design for the first Coostr (Turtle) is finalized and has been approved by the manufacturer. Now he needs your help in order to move forward with making Coostr a reality. Dominick is fully confident in Coostr, and his ability to deliver a fun, and functional new product to everyone that helped make this possible.
