The Idea

Earth Chunks began in early 2013 in a small garage near Padre Island, Texas.  Over the last few years we have created hundreds of "earthly" styles; so we wanted to take a dip in the vast reaches of outer space.   The mind blowing color shifts you see in Nebula bands are determined by the different angles at which the suns hit the surface; unlike traditional "chameleon paint"  who's color changes based on the objects angle. When you see it in person for the first time,  it is nothing short of incredible. By developing a special technique for blending the next level of color with the high durability of acrylic, we have created some of the most unique and intriguing styles available today.  All of our bands are backed by a LIFETIME Warranty that includes refinishing and polishing at no charge!

 The Purpose

GROWTH!  Over the last five years the available room in the studio has slowly shrunk with the addition of new employees, tools, and machines.  Space is at a premium, even walking space; we simply cannot continue to grow as a company unless we grow the space in which we have to work!  Funding from our kickstarter project will help cover the additional costs of the new headquarters for Earth Chunks LLC.  We will be able to not only improve and grow our product line but also reduce turnaround times to under a week on almost every style that we offer!

Risks and challenges

Honestly there are no major risks. We have tested and retested time, materials, and delivery. We have a staff of four incredibly dedicated individuals who have been well trained in creating rings, close to 1000 combined hours between us. Since we create our own materials, scarcity and material delays are nonexistent! We have enough material on hand to fill well over 1000 orders without issue.

We have multiple experiences with projects on the same scale as this, and it's well within our skill range. Quality above quantity - everything is triple checked for complete accuracy.
