Risks and challenges

We've been working over the past year and a half with designers and plastics engineers. We've developed many new working prototypes and rigorously tested them all in painting jobs. We made changes and started over until we had developed a final product that functions as we envisioned. Meaning, we didn't want another painting accessory that hindered the normal painting process, or didn't function as promised.

We completed our tooling based off of this final design using the highest grade plastic injection mold steel available. Because we used a hardened high grade steel, it allows us to cut and modify if needed for changes. We had packaging designed by a top U.S. design firm that has worked with many of the large tool companies.

We are seeking Kickstarter funding to help bring all our hard work to reality by creating and proving our products functionality and usefulness in the home remodeling and painting world. This funding will help pay for our first product runs and serve as a test to receive market feedback from the users.

We are confident in our manufacturing partners and process and have allotted the proper time to do production runs to allow for timely and smooth deliveries of our product.

We know our biggest hurdle will be breaking into the big chain stores/ home improvement departments, that's why Kickstarter is such a valuable tool for an aspiring inventor. It will help us make any necessary changes before launching into major retailers, help provide the funding to meet these retailers requirements, and lastly provide a proof of concept.

Thank you so much for your support and allowing us to pursue the dream of inventing!

Sincerely,
Jonathan Rajala
Rajala Group
