Ski gloves...work gloves...driving gloves....the list goes on and on!!!  How many gloves do you have sitting around your house?

So what happens when you're wearing your gloves and you need to snap that quick picture before it's gone? Need to type a short text or answer a call? What if there was a simple, CHEAP option that could instantly transform any of the gloves YOU ALREADY OWN in to a capacitive glove in seconds? Now there is!

         DOES IT REALLY WORK??

ALL YOU NEED IS GLOVE LOVE

  •     Makes any glove touch screen capable in seconds
  •     Patent pending design keeps the sleeve in place
  •     Flexible fabric lets you use on any finger or thumb
  •     Works when wet and in temperatures down to -30F

 WHAT'S GLOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?

The reason your fingertips work on capacitive devices is that your skin is a good conductor of electricity. Obviously, gloves block that conductive process. Most of the products on the market, (and there aren’t many), are still trying to use your skin as a conductor with another material in between which then contacts the screen. The only problem... that transfer is hit and miss. So we set out to find a better way. We wanted an independent source that can work on its own instead of trying to use your skin.That's exactly what Glove Love does.

                PRODUCT TESTS


Over the last 6 months, we've taken Glove Love samples to ski resorts, construction sites and beyond. We wanted to get feedback from users and hear what they have to say about the sleeve, how it works and what changes we could make to improve the fit, quality and durability. Here are some more product reviews on Glove Love:

                    WHAT NOW?

Share the LOVE!!! The purpose behind the Kickstarter campaign is two-fold. 

  • First, we are dying to gauge customer appetite for the sleeves and determine what the market climate is like for our product. Kickstarter will give us the glimpse that we need before we invest more $$ in the production process. We've been through the testing phase and now it's time to throw it out there and really see what Glove Love can do in the open market.
  • Secondly, and more importantly, we need to raise enough capital to be able to go to production for our first order of sleeves.  If we can hit our goal, we'll also be better positioned to take Glove Love to several major tech/retailer shows around the country so we can get this in key distribution channels. Also, we will be in a position to respond to your feedback and make any improvements to the design/style of our sleeves to fit your needs.

                  PRODUCTION PLAN

  • December 2012 - May 2013 : design and prototyping, field tests, market testing
  • June 2013 : Launch kickstarter campaign
  • July 2013 : Finish campaign, make adjustments depending on order quantities, place order for materials, design final packaging
  • August 2013 : Sleeve assembly, testing, QC, package orders
  • September 2013 : Begin shipping to all backers


             MANUFACTURING   

As for the manufacturing process, we have several options when it comes to making our sleeves. Our goal is to keep everything here domestically. We have been in discussion with several production outlets who can help us build our sleeves on a larger scale. The distribution channel will depend largely on demand.  We intend to keep a 2-week inventory in our warehouse with a 2-week turnaround time from our manufacturers from the time we place a new PO. Due to the small, light-weight nature of the sleeves, we can store a lot of product in a small area which will cut down on our storage costs significantly. 

        HOW WILL FUNDS BE USED?

  • PURCHASE RAW MATERIALS FOR SLEEVES
  • MANUFACTURING/ASSEMBLY COSTS
  • DESIGN/DEVELOP PACKAGING
  • SHIPPING COSTS
  • WEB DEVELOPMENT FOR ONLINE TRANSACTIONS
  • TRADE SHOW FEES/DISPLAYS/MATERIALS

Risks and challenges

There are real risks and challenges with any start-up. We've done our homework and feel that our product development and supply chain experience will help us overcome potential challenges. We have our suppliers and production teams ready to start cranking sleeves by the thousands. If we see a larger than expected response from the Kickstarter campaign, we may need to shift to a larger production house or add another layer. We have a handle on exact costs from start to finish so the real X factor remains quantities, packaging and shipping. During the campaign, we will be able to project order quantities and get the ball rolling even before the campaign ends.

Delivery:
Since the sleeves will be manufactured in the USA, most of our shipping will be seamless using USPS. Our plan is to utilize the cloud based online shipping solution (http://www.shipstation.com) to manage our backer database and let all backers track their shipments on their own.

We've allotted extra time in our schedule to avoid any major delays. We are committed to total transparency with backers throughout the entire kickstarter-to-shipping process.
