About this project

A Little Bit About Me & My Company

Hello All,

My name is Brian Gibson and I am the President & CEO of simpliuniik, inc. I have a beautiful wife and a 4 year old son that keeps me on my toes constantly. I have started a new company, simpliuniik, inc., with the goal of developing everyday products that are easy to use. Our first product will be the Seally Cap. Our first hurdle is funding for tooling and the minimum order. That's where you come in. Please check out the campaign and spread the word. Thank You!

This avocado was cut in half. The half on the left was covered by a Seally Cap. The half on the right was stuck in a plastic bag. After 5 days here are the results.

This is the same avocado as pictured above. This photo was taken at the 12 day mark. The one on the left has been in a Seally Cap and the one on the right in a plastic bag. They were both stored in a refrigerator. NO lime or lemon juice have been added.

Not too shabby for 26 days old. The half that has been covered by the Seally Cap still looks pretty good. However, the poor half that was sacrificed to the plastic bag is now starting to mold.

 Research & Development

This very first prototype on the left didn't work very well. On the second prototype in the middle I integrated a dome with a relief ridge but it wasn't tall enough. The final product on the right is perfect and has been tested extensively.

Risks and challenges

Our main problem we have faced in the past year is finding a reliable/affordable manufacturer. We have now got over that hurdle and have found a great one. That manufacturer has made the final prototypes for us and they are flawless. If something happens in the manufacturing process I am confident they will fix it. EXAMPLE: The first prototypes were too firm. They understood what I was trying to achieve and would not send them to me. They changed the silicone and hit a home run with it.

Another hurdle could be if the campaign sky rockets with contributors. It's great for us and will be a lot of work. We are a small operation now but I will recruit friends and family for a packing party if that happens. That way we will get everything sent in a timely manner.

FAQ

  • To order additional pledges for friends, family and gifts. Just add the appropriate amount to your pledge amount and message me directly stating what you would like. I will then make a note on my side of things to make sure you get what you want.
    Example: If you ordered the $35 Family Pack and you want two more. Adjust your pledge amount to $105 then message me saying you want two additional Family Packs.

    If you are having to do international shipping then adjust your shipping accordingly.
    Example: The Family Pack has $9 international shipping. So if you want 3 Family Packs then you need $27 for shipping.

    If you were one of the early supporters and were fortunate enough to get an early bird. I will honor that price for multiples.

    If you have any trouble adjusting your pledge please go to https://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/backer+questions… and scroll down to the video that will help you.
