About this project
Hello! If you're here, you have decided that you want to be a trendsetter by wearing Baxies and have seen our fun fashionable & functional earring bax.
...or you feel the need to support Baxies by pledging to our campaign. Either way we're excited to have you visit and hope that you join the fun of becoming a Baxies trendsetter today.
It's been a wild ride inventing a product like Baxies I thought I was alone when I wanted jewelry for the Bax of my ears...turns out I'm only one of seemingly thousands who think the same way. I'm thrilled that you are here and thinking about starting your collection or supporting Baxies with your pledge so others can. It's going to be so fun bringing a product like Baxies to market.
I’ve managed to protect Baxies with trademarking, filing a patent and copyrighting, but since I’m completely self-funded, it's been difficult to actually manufacture my American made product, Baxies, which is staying true to the red, white and blue…just like me! In fact, once you choose the number of Baxies you want & the funding goal has been met Baxies will be manufactured in California. I feel very fortunate to have found excellent manufacturers right here in my own backyard. Proximity keeps costs down and that is a big deal.
You may have seen from the Facebook page that there have been many votes on various designs. I’ve used those votes to bring the designs here for you to make final decisions. The zany, adorable and very colorful designs on Baxies are going to be the newest, fun and collectible trend since Sillybanz.
The designs chosen on Kickstarter are limited editions just for you! I want you to have them as a supporter of my project.
I’m really excited to get going, my minimum goal is $4500 and this is where your pledge is going:
- $2500 for tooling
- $2000 for designing & packaging
At $4500 we will be able to manufacture Baxies and give you the rewards that are to the right side of this page. But really, if I only raise $4500 then Baxies are not ever going to cost less than they do right now. Everyone likes a good deal so I'm hoping we reach the bigger goal.
- Because, if we can reach $9,500 in funding then you will receive the rewards with the * (asterisk). Now we are talkin'. The reason we would be able to give your more is because we would have the funds to buy a bigger capacity tool thereby increasing the number of products produced at one time. Our costs will be reduced per piece so we would be able to afford to create more designs and pass the savings on to our supporting trendsetters. Help us bring Baxies to life and get more great rewards while you're at it!
Thank you so much for supporting Baxies! Since Kickstarter has an "all or nothing" funding policy, I only get the funding and you only get your awesome rewards if Baxies reaches our minimum goal of $4500.00! Remember that every little bit helps and it all adds up. Even if you can't make a pledge yourself, please share this with your friends and family and other Baxies fans because there is a reward for that too!
We are offering an outstanding award for our $1000 donors; however, we cannot accept those pledges until we reach our minimum goal of $4500.
Yes, please add $5 to your pledge for shipping. International backers your shipping will be determined once Baxies has been funded, we apologize for the inconvenience.
No, Baxies are earring backs so they will have a dome shape and will have a hole in the center for your earring post
They are so CUTE! Plus Baxies are made using patented technology that holds your earring post securely. The large circumference not only gives Baxies it's unique style, but also the large size supports your earlobe thus supporting heavy earrings and won't allow studs to droop forward
Yes. They are made using hypoallergenic materials and processes
Baxies are designed to fit most earring posts. There are some posts that are thicker than average, however, they are uncommon. Once Baxies have been manufactured our goals are to add to the line so we have a product that fits even the most rare earring post.
There will be two designs once we fund at $4500 and as few as four designs but possibly as many as 8 if we reach $9500
We have to manufacture the a minimum number of each design to keep costs down. If we have enough of the design you prefer then we will happily accommodate your request. If you are a Baxies Trendsetter you will receive two different designs. If we reach $9500 then you may receive as many as 4 different designs. The more funds we raise the more of a selection we can offer our trendsetting supporters.
Thanks for the follow :)
