First $1000 backer!
I want to send a shout out to Remy Lee for becoming our first $1000 backer. Remy says she's very excited about designing her own Elroy faceplate and she's especially excited about our product launch party later in the summer. Remy, you've definitely earned a special place in the Elroy history books. Thanks!
$150k stretch goal reward
Well, I know everyone has been waiting to see what this little ditty is going to look like. So, here it is. Brook did up some sketches and then I started working on the spec package illustrations for the factory. This is going to be a hard shell case, sturdy enough to really protect your Elroy. It's small and should easily fit in your travel bag without being a big, annoying lump. Yet there will be plenty of space inside for your earbuds, extra ear tips and what-have-you. The zipper is set inside the outer rim in order to keep the look as clean as possible. I've keep the inside simple. It's just two elastic mesh pockets. This way we keep it more of an all purpose case. If you don't need it for your Elroy, it will still be useful for all sort of other small trinkets. The Elroy logo will be embossed into the top of the case. And the zipper puller will be a very simple logo embossed overmolded string puller.
How to help make our $150k stretch goal
We're down to the last week (essentially) of our Kickstarter campaign. This is our last all-out push to see how far we can make this go. We've certainly already raised enough money to bring Elroy to market. Every extra dollar we bring in makes it just a little easier to get that job done. Be sure to share the Elroy Kickstarter with Facebook and Twitter friends. And, if you haven't been to our Facebook page yet, be sure to wander over there and check it out. We're having some fun coming up with an Elroy tagline. There are lots of great suggestions up already. Be sure to add yours to the fray!
Earbud design update
My buddy Joe is now back in the real world after his extended bout of the flu. He's now busy working on modeling the earbud design up. We should have something to show everyone later in the week. (Pins and needles!)
It's going to be a good week this week. I can feel it in my bones!
Happy Monday to everyone!
