UPCYCLED MACHINED DICE: Machined Metal Gaming Dice
Solid D6 machined anodized dice made from recycled metal. Help support me in keeping the idea of recycling our resources alive.
**When pledging for any reward level to the right you can choose a different color or finishing for each one of your dice.(Choose from Clear anodized, Pure Blue, Kickstarter Green or Natural Machine Finish.**
Why are these dice so cool?
D6 dice made from 100% recycled aluminum that has been melted, compressed, turned into solid billets and manufactured into dice. Light weight and simplistic in design for easy rolling. Smooth rounded dice faces that will not scratch your boards games like straight edged metal dice. Replace your standard acrylic style dice with the metal Upcycled Dice which are designed to last.(Wouldn't recommend rolling the dice on concrete surfaces).
OH YEAH did I forget to mention that they feel and sound amazing!

Why recycled aluminum for the Upcycled Dice?
The simple answer honestly is the fact that I am a Eco friendly natural resource recycling crazed type of person that believes in re-using resources we use everyday and turning them into really cool products. More and more products today are being produced from clean recycled materials. The process of recycling aluminum has been in common practice since the early 1900's. It has proven to be both economically and ecologically of value that both recycling and recovery has become a huge industry in itself.
Weight and Measurments:
Die Weight- 0.4 oz
Dimensions- 5/8" or 16mm on each side
Manufacturing of the Upcycle Dice:
I am working with a metal machine and die company out of Ohio that manufacturers different products from all makes of metals. Large quantities of aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, and other recycled metals are purchased and processed onsite . Once the metals have been brought back to a solid state diverse products are produced using metal cutting and drilling machinery.
Your pledge will help with the tooling, labor, materials, packaging and shipping cost.
**Add on any additional number of dice to your pledge by increasing your current pledge to include the additional cost below. Pricing does not apply to the limited reward level.**
1. Two additional dice: USA $13 ------ International $16
2. Four additional dice: USA $23------ International $26
Risks and challenges
Ready to get this project underway and bring it to success. Metal machine company that works in recycled metals has been contracted and is ready to start machining of the dice. Dice bag supplier has been established and waiting to fulfill the order.
The only problem that I can see possibly but with little doubt arising is being able to package and ship thousands of pledges out, but if pledges reach into the thousands than I have good solid help that is ready to pitch in and push these out.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
