About

Like the Man said, "Relax." There's always next year. And next year we'll be better prepared. We'll put a new kind of cheese on our heads and march into battle with the Green Bay Packers.

The String Cheese Hat holds 2 cans, 1 flask and your head. The String Cheese can be peeled down to access the beer cooler and "Flask Hole". Flask hole can also be used for deck of cards.

The funds being raised will help fine tune the prototype and defray start-up manufacturing costs. The funds will also go to some of the legal fees associated with final design and intellectual property protection that's in progress (For the record, it's hard to say "intellectual property" and "String Cheese Hat" in the same sentence.)

Check out rewards to the right and images of rewards below. Don't just laugh and pass. Laugh, pledge and pass. That birthday, anniversary (don't really try that guys), or next Christmas is just around the corner. String Cheese Hats are also appropriate for Bar Mitzvahs and Baptisms.

The largest rewards are reserved for one or more companies who would like to have their name prominently placed on the String Cheese Hat. 

After project, once products are manufactured, going forward, 10% of profits from the sales of String Cheese Hats will be donated to the SE Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

Risks and challenges

September has been set as a delivery date based on experience pulling together manufacturing projects in the past, but that said, there is always a chance that the date could push out depending upon final vendor selected and production lead times.

Updates will be regularly sent out regarding any ship times - especially if deliver times need to be adjusted.
