Risks and challenges

The biggest production challenge for the RUSS Recreational Utility Seat is the diversity of color options including 7 (seven) colors along with custom color pledge levels (within color availability and reason of course). We are well prepared for implementing this level of customization. We will have our production schedule synchronized with color selection to make our color coating process as efficient as possible. Custom colors are included at higher pledge levels to cover those increased costs. One of our project goals is to determine the most popular color choices to offer with larger production volumes in the future. Custom colors will only be offered for the RUSS Recreational Utility Seat in this Kickstarter Design Project Campaign. No matter which color is selected all of our RUSS Recreational Utility Seats will be custom manufactured to the Very Freshest Levels of Quality!
