Hello again, Kickstarter community! After an enjoyable and successful Kickstarter campaign with the Wiggly Salt & Pepper Shakers, we are back! Building on our Wiggly brand of melding fun with functionality, we are pleased to present for your consideration…The Wiggly Pen.

The strategy behind the Wiggly Pen was to create an attractive, artfully designed pen that would playfully wobble in it's base, while remaining functional through durability and proficient craftsmanship.

Design

A hybrid of entertainment and elegance, the Wiggly Pen stands on a base that has been crafted to appear as an inkwell. Its original, eye-catching design sets it apart on any office desk and its unique, luxurious style will serve as a conversation starter at first glance. Empirically speaking, it takes only a moment for the casual observer to jump from simply being intrigued by the playfulness of the Wiggly Pen to insisting that they have one on their own desk.

Development

Nothing survives on sizzle alone, of course; and the substance of Wiggly Pens, the development of the product, is stellar. The base is constructed using stainless steel and the pen is aircraft grade aluminum, for durability and long life. Each Pen comes with a black ink cartridge.

Here are the designs we went through to bring about the final Wiggly Pen design. We felt it was just too much and went to a more minimalist design - sometimes less is more.

It took us a while to get the right design and balance on the base here is the first design.

The Pen would not stay upright.

So we made a flatter base so the pen would stay up right and give good movement.

The final product turned out great.

Schedule

Here is our proposed schedule for the WigglyPen:

February - Launch Kickstarter campaign.

March - Get Funded Order material

April - Start production.

May - Finish production and begin shipping.

Risks and challenges

The design and development for the pen is completed and we have conducted a limited prototype run to confirm our production timeline. The funds will be used to buy raw material in quantity and complete our first full production run. All manufacturing is done locally with vendors we have worked with for years. Experience and familiarity dictates this is a remarkably low risk project. 

As veterans in the manufacturing industry, we have successfully taken a number of products to market; including our first foray into Kickstarter, with the Wiggly Salt & Pepper Shakers. We are thrilled at this time to present the Wiggly Pen. Unique, stylish, fun, and functional.
