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.

About

Hi There,  

We are Andy and Michele and we know painting. We are general contractors and, over the years, we have developed tips and tricks to work faster and smarter. When we paint, we don't waste time or money taping over outlets and switches. We don't risk getting shocked by exposed wires and we don't worry about drywall dust or mud in our electrical boxes either. We invented PainterSaver and we are never taping again. 

We like to share our tips and tricks and we would like to share PainterSaver with the world. For the price of a roll of painters tape, you can buy enough PainterSaver covers for a whole room. Unlike tape, our covers are reusable and they are lightening fast.

 We think PainterSaver is a great idea, but more importantly, we want to know what you think. In return for your support on Kickstarter, you get a 12 piece kit to try before PainterSaver is available to the public.  So if you plan on painting anytime soon, please back us today. 

Rewards 

We are keeping it pretty simple. PainterSaver is being offered in a kit of twelve covers, enough for an average size room. You get

 Timeline

We understand that you want to get your backer rewards as soon as possible and get painting.  All design and testing is complete.  We will start production before the campaign is complete and rush deliver the early bird rewards.

 

 

Risks and challenges

As small business owners, we understand the risks and challenges of completing a project on time. We also know that a good crew can make all the difference. We have enlisted help from an experienced product development firm, Wiard Consulting. They will manage the manufacture, quality control, and shipping logistics. We designed the PainterSaver. They will do the rest. Along the way, we will provide frequent updates, so our journey is your journey.
