Making A Good Impression

I started a new job and like many of us, found myself spending the day moving from meeting-to-meeting. Hardly at my desk and on the move, I always had a few staple supplies; my phone, moleskine®, pen and a coffee. On days I added my laptop to the mix it added an entirely new balancing act that even the best of us would struggle with.

Dropping multiple items in transit, many times spilling HOT coffee on myself, all while trying to keep my balance act up was becoming comical. There weren't enough pieces to warrant carrying a bag around the office, but something had to be done.

The BUKUL Was Born

I tried to make the whole thing out of canvas, but it didn't have the structural integrity it needed to hold everything. 

Testing different designs and materials.
Testing different designs and materials.

Being a laser-cutting junkie, I created a digital pattern and laser-cut my first BUKUL from walnut. A few iterations later, with just the perfect tweaks and improvements, and my basic sewing skills, the BUKUL was perfect. It became an instant hit at the office with designers, coders, developers and executives alike. 

BUKUL'd up!

Word got out about the BUKUL

I started creating the BUKUL using local LA manufacturers and fulfilling the orders over my dining table during the evenings and weekends. 

 

Hot off the laser-cutter and ready to assemble!

Soon after, I opened an Etsy shop to get a sense of the real appeal ... sort of a case study to test out the market. I had orders coming in from all over the US and even an order from Singapore!

Undeniable Appeal and Utility

The appeal and utility were undeniable, so now I'd like to give the BUKUL a good run and really put it into production. That's where you and this Kickstarter come in!

The Plan

The resources raised through this project will be used to create the BUKUL collection. This collection includes a one-size-fits-all BUKUL to accommodate different phone sizes, and two sizes of bands sold in PAIRS. We'll round out even the most bundled needs, which will include;

BUKUL built for medium sized notebooks, such as a standard moleskine or iPad Mini (smaller sized band).  BUKUL+ built for a larger notebook, laptop or iPad Pro (larger sized band).

To compliment your BUKUL, we'll include our BUKUL book and a custom pen. 

Our goal to raise funds will help with the costs associated with a large scale production runs, which includes ordering the necessary supplies and fulfillment. I am collaborating with two US based businesses to produce and manufacture the BUKUL and currently sampling elastic textiles to find the best quality available. Through years of BUKUL evolution, including design, production and testing, it has all lead to creating a clean and streamlined process.

To prepare for a large order, I have enlisted a local Los Angeles based sewing and soft goods manufacturer who regularly produces products for Disney upholstery, apparel and accessories. They have over 40 years of experience and have been producing large runs on tight deadlines for years and I am happy to have them on my team.

FAQs

When will I get to choose the colors of my BUKUL if I'm doing one of the larger orders (Super 6, Perfect 10 and Any Way You Like It)?

  • We'll contact you once our Kickstarter goal has been met. At that time we'll get additional information from you to make sure you're 100% satisfied with your investment. 

Do things fall out of the BUKUL?

  • Although we can never make any guarantees because the items people will place in the BUKUL can vary, I've taken great care to fully test this product to make, no matter the device, notebook or pen, should fit and stay perfectly and snugly in place. 

Does the BUKUL fit my iPhone 6 Plus?

  • Yes, the BUKUL is designed to fit most phones by adjusting the band to the notch that fits your device best.

Can I get a logo engraved?

  • Yes! Be sure that you choose one of the options that includes engraving. (specify where engraving happens)

If I want to buy a large quantity, like for my team at the office, can I get a discount?

  • The discount for large quantities has already been included in the pricing, however, if your quantity exceeds what is listed, we're happy to discuss additional discounts and adjustments to the price. 

Is the BUKULbook an actual Moleskine®?

  • The BUKULbook is not a Moleskine® brand book, but if you have a Moleskine the sizing is comparable with our BUKULbook. (specify bukulbook size, lined)

Risks and challenges

The task of the BUKUL Kickstarter will be getting the word out, and convincing Kickstarters to participate. There are so many amazing projects out there, it is going to be challenging to get the attention I need to make this Kickstarter successful. I’m in Marketing as my day job so I’ll be pulling out all the stops to communicate to various outlets, networks, bloggers, friends, and family to help me spread the word.

Once funding is in place, my success will be producing a large quantity of BUKULs and making sure the partners I’m working with maintain my quality standards. As an Industrial Designer, I have been dealing with the companies I’m working with in various capacities for years and have a solid communication base that gives me a great deal of confidence in them.
