About this project
In this day and age, we all love (and often depend on) our mobile devices. But often as creative individuals, we love pencil & paper even more. That's the medium in which ideas are born.
Blerline 'Tracing Sticky Notes' are unique in that they are specifically designed and manufactured to fit mobile devices. No rolls of tracing paper, no tape needed to hold it down - just a made-to-fit sheet of translucent paper with an integral sticky note-like adhesive. Our patent-pending product is extremely simple, but amazingly convenient.
With mobile devices often used as lightboxes, the functionality of the traditional lightbox is now an available convenience for all aspiring creatives. In fact, "iPad as lightbox" currently garners over 4 million hits on Google. When using your mobile device as a lightbox, Blerline 'Tracing Sticky Notes' are the perfect tool to create your artwork.
Through our Kickstarter campaign we are seeking financial support to help meet the manufacturer minimum requirements in order to launch the initial line of products for Apple devices. In fact, if we exceed our funding goal, our plan is to expand Blerline to other mobile devices such as Samsung, Amazon & Google in the near future.
It would be amazing to bring into the market a product that we believe will enhance the way we creatively interact with our mobile devices.
We hope that our Kickstarter supporters can share with us all of the ways they use Blerline. We'll have a community page on our website where we'll share images and videos of creative ideas.

Risks and challenges
We have teamed up with a manufacturing partner that has extensive experience in the adhesive paper industry. We are confident that we can meet any level of demand with this partnership.
The real challenges for Blerline as a company is two-fold: 1. To raise enough funds to place minimum orders for each of the sizes in our first product line and, 2. To educate consumers on how they can use Blerline products.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We've tested the paper with everything from Sharpie brand markers to old-fashioned mechanical pencils. The paper will not bleed through. Even still, we do recommend a screen protector for your device. This is particularly important when using mechanical pencils--just in case you get carried away with your creations and forget to forward the lead.
We decided to start with Apple products based on market share and will expand to other devices as funding milestones are met. We'd love to offer more products as soon as possible--Samsung will be next!
We used that international shipping cost on Kickstarter for the campaign rewards only to cover packaging/shipping/handling. If you are interested in larger quantities and models after the campaign, we can quote specific needs and ship using FedEx or DHL at a rate directly related to those quantities.
