What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

And much, much more...

The money will be used in the first large scale production of all four sports planners. Including the manufacturing and shipping. 

For those coaches who need a little more structure: Help coaches keep all sessions in one place, allowing them to go back and review. 

For those structured coaches who need a little more creativity/spontaneity: The blank session plan pages allow coaches to express themselves a little more than they normally would. 

For those who like to reflect to help their personal development: Allows coaches to reflect, take notes, and plan all in the same space. 

For those who need help with their health: By writing things down on paper it always makes the goals more achievable.

 

The process has been a long journey. There has been lots of designing, deleting, re-designing, researching, emails, tweaking, in pursuit for the perfect sports planner. We know believe we have created that and can't wait to share it with you.

We initially had 100 planners printed in order to test the market, these have flown out with outstanding 5 star reviews on Amazon.

I have teamed up with a book binding company who produce the best hardback books in its field. They have had over 15 years experience and have worked with large brand sin the past such as Moleskine. I have already had a few prototypes sent over and the quality is great. 

I have teamed up with a book binding company who produce the best hardback books in its field. They have had over 15 years experience and have worked with large brand sin the past such as Moleskine. I have already had a few prototypes sent over and the quality is great. 

All parts of the planner have been checked over from the PU leather, paper, colour, weight, ribbon and binding 

We are at the point where once we receive funding we will be completely ready to finish production in order you them to you before the end of April at the earliest and early May at the latest. And that's where you wonderful backers come in! Once backed the manufacturing process will look like this:

1) The print company will take the designs that i have already provided and begin the printing of these. 

2) While the internal pages are being printed and bound, they will then start the emboss of cover page logo.

3) The pages will then be installed into the planner at the same time as the bookmarking ribbon. 

4) Next the internal cover sheets are glued into place and the elastic band is installed into the back cover of the planner.

5) Corners will then be rounded using a laser cutter.

6) Lastly, each planner will be checked for quality and individually packaged in a plastic sleeve for shipment. 

7) Then the goods will be shipped to my door where I will carry out the fulfillment of the planners to their respective homes myself. I have already found a forwarder to ship them to my door as well as worked out a plan with parcles2go to have them shipped. 

I will do everything in my powers to have it out and delivered to your door by the middle of June. It is really important that as soon as the Kickstarter finishes you complete the survey so that the planner can be posted straight away.

Thanks Again

The Sports Planner Founder

Risks and challenges

As of right now, the only challenge I see is getting this product out to the back in time for the middle of June. I ask in advance I ask for patience and that backers respond to the emails as soon at the kick starter finishes and

Again, although it is my goal to get it in your hands by then, I hope you understand that setbacks do arise in terms of manufacturing and shipping.

I am overseeing every step of the process myself to ensure that you receive a quality product that you can cherish for a long time. Trust me, I am just as excited as you are to get these sports planners in your hands as your are!
