Custom Engraved Triple Threat Pack - $299

We will work with you to create a custom engraving scheme that can include but is not limited to your logos, your name, and artistic filagree. This will be adapted to all three burnt weapons. You will also receive all ammo upgrades.

Underwriter (Enforcer, Destroyer, Annihilator) - $799 each

Get your name on every gun of the model you choose! If you would like to underwrite the Destroyer, for example, every Destroyer would include something like "Brought to you by <your name>" in the laser engraving. Feel free to underwrite all three! This is a reward for someone that does not really need rubber band guns, but wants to recognized as a premier supporter of the project.

-- Add-Ons --

Customize your pledge by first choosing the reward level you would like to receive and then increasing the pledge amount to incorporate the following add-ons. After the project is successfully funded a survey will be sent out to all backers asking to confirm what you expect to receive. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Multiples

Want multiples of one of the reward levels? Just multiply the standard pledge amount by the number you want. So you want to dual wield a pair of Destroyers? Just select the Destroyer as the reward and set your pledge amount to $39 x 2 = $78. If you needed them shipped to Canada, the total would be $78 + $6 shipping = $84.

Colored Ammo

Tired of the natural colored bands? Add $1 to your pledge to get colored bands. We choose the color, deal with it.

Higher Power Ammo

Want to add just a bit more punch to your Destroyer and/or Annihilator? Add $1 to get thicker rubber band ammo in addition to the standard ammo. The Enforcer does NOT have the option for higher power ammo.

Extra Alien Targets

Can't get enough retro alien carnage? Add $1 to get another 5x alien target cards.

-- STORY --

For Christmas last year, I borrowed some time on a laser cutter to cut out a rubber band gun for my father. I had so much fun and everyone liked it, especially my father. For months following Christmas, I got texts from my father saying things like, "Yep, [I] like that rubber band gun" and "I REALLY like my rubber band gun."

Since one rubber band gun can bring that much joy, we decided to share the joy with others. I have been borrowing time on the same laser cutter to create the prototypes seen here, but we need our own laser cutter to go into production and keep costs down. The money raised from this campaign will be used to offset the cost of a laser cutter.

-- How will the money be used? --

Aside from paying for the materials, packing, and shipping, the money raised from this campaign will go toward setting up a small laser cutter shop. A few of the necessary tools include:

  • Laser cutter (we have already been in contact with the supplier) 
  • Fume Filtering 
  • Table Saw 
  • Sander 
  • Dust Collection 
  • Lighting

_____________________________

-- Words to the Wise --

Please note: It is your responsibility to know and obey the laws regarding toy guns in your area!

For your own safety, never brandish a toy gun in public.

While rubber bands are relatively harmless, do not fire at people or animals.

Risks and challenges

New Machine Risk:
A laser cutter is a large and complicated thing. Shipping it to our shop could take longer than expected, something could be damaged during shipping, or getting up to speed on new software and hardware could take longer than expected. We have already been working with a local laser machine supplier to ensure that we get the machine delivered safely, have a good warranty plan, and local customer service.

Schedule Risk:
A lot can happen when trying to run a business after your day job. We believe we have made our best effort on estimating the time required to complete this project. Bear with us if we do happen to get behind.
