PaperShooters™: Build a Cardboard Blaster that Shoots Paper!

£47,123

Paper pellets make great projectiles- just ask any school kid. They are also great for slaying Zombies! We are launching our highly innovative build-it-yourself Cardboard blaster that shoots 'soft splat' paper ammo up to 65 feet, and now we need your help. If you enjoy building things, and shooting things- you will love PaperShooters™ Construction Kits! Our blasters are supplied in kit form so you'll need to assemble all 124 pieces, attaching every spring, and tightening every screw! We are Shipping in July 2015, so you won't have to wait long to get your hands on PaperShooters™

NB: The ammo is ultra safe, mess free and 100% biodegradable. It does not hurt if you are struck with it.

PaperShooters™ is a highly detailed construction kit. You have to build all the components including the air chamber, springs and the trigger mechanism. The plastic 'skeleton' is then covered with interchangeable cardboard camo skins- they look awesome displayed on a shelf or wall, and guess what? They're functional too- so when you have built it, you'll need to master it, by hitting the Zombie targets up to 65 feet away!

Designing and building is very cool....but theres one big problem. You are limited by individual skill and ability....well not anymore! Anyone can make an awesome looking blaster that's functional and works really well. Build it! Master it!

All pieces are pre- cut, so you simply need to screw and glue them in to place

PaperShooters™ is highly innovative and provides an entirely new build and play experience. Our constructions kits are aimed at 14+ and are more accurate than other blasters on the market. They feature awesome interchangeable camo's, real triggers, and ejecting shells! You don't need to collect your ammo afterwards - and make it yourself in seconds using ordinary paper with the mold included.

Assemble all 124 pieces, then master it by hitting the target!

The Team

PaperShooters™ has been brought to life by a small group of product designers. As a young entrepreneurial team we’re committed to developing a fantastic product unlike anything seen before. We’ve dedicated nearly three years to make this concept a reality, and now need your help to finally bring PaperShooters™ to market.

We have worked with a great team of ex Hasbro product designers to produce PaperShooters™. The team have previously worked on numerous Nerf and Star Wars products over the last 15 years.

We are in full production and have completed all elements of tooling, testing packaging design, and instructions. Product will be shipped in July 2015. We’ll use the Kickstarter funds to raise awareness of the product, further marketing, and support further product development.

We would really appreciate your support! If you like our idea and project, please spread the word and visit us at www.PaperShooters.com

Paper Shooters Limited is a company registered in the United Kingdom: Company Number: 08406631

Final product may vary from that shown in this campaign and is subject to change based upon manufacturing changes/ requirements.

Risks and challenges

Our team consists of former Nerf and Star Wars designers, so we understand every step of the way in making a fantastic product and placing it into the hands of the consumer. We have been working on this product for nearly three years and it has been quite a journey- starting with sketches, models, and prototypes, until we have what you see here: A fantastic quality product that is fun to build, looks great, and performs really well.

The initial production run of 5,000 units is fully funded, and underway. If we blow the goal out of the park we will simply increase production. Our manufacturing partners supply toys and gifts to some of the world's biggest retailers. They estimate they could quickly ramp up production to around 10,000 per week, thus we don't envisage any issues getting your rewards to you in July this year. Our team will travel to the far east again in May to check production and will be updating all backers here throughout with photos and videos of production.

It would be great to have you on-board with us and thank you for your interest in PaperShooters™
