      Great idea! I'm shifting around my workspace today; I'll pull together all the coaster options and post these pictures soon!

      The colors are very close to what you see in the photos. I will put together a collage of all the different coaster material options on different backgrounds so you can get a sense of how they compare. :)

      @RiTides: I hadn't even noticed the patrioticness - but that's probably because I'm not American. :) I think it would look a lot less "patriotic" if there was a coloured background as well. If the acrylic rings are glassy clear, they won't look white if you put them on a regular non-white table.

      @Rachel, do the actual colours exactly match the pictures? Maybe it would be a nice idea to arrange samples of all of the available colours somewhere, so that we can see what e.g. white wood + clear acrylic + dark wood would look like.

      @RiTides:
      Yes I agree! I don't think it will be too tricky. Since the cut of each coaster is identical I can just pack one complete coaster in each of the 4 materials. I like that idea for the survey! Hopefully I can set up the questions so the options are clear. :)

      Well, that is interesting! Just as long as it's not too hard for you to keep track of =)
      Most people would probably pick one of the standard options anyway, so maybe in the post-Kickstarter suvey you could just have a field asking if they wanted custom colors, and to fill in if so (and if they didn't, they'd just get the standard colors).

      Thank you Steve! I appreciate that feedback. :) I'm working on a custom combination option for the coasters, too, where you can select any 4 materials. So you could pair the Red-Orange Felt with either the Walnut or Blue Pine for more of an orange and wood combination!

      Caroline suggested the customization and I think it would be a great option. I hope to announce more formally how this will work in the next update! Thanks again!

      Alternate colors are a good idea, although I think I like the base colors best and will be sticking to those =)
      These look almost patriotic to me, which not bad in an of itself, isn't something I'd likely keep out all year round. I was kind of hoping the alt scheme to be wood and orange instead of the prior wood and green, as these look a little busy.
      Just a little constructive criticism on the color choices, hope that's OK!
