About

Hello, my name is Jason Urban, founder of Ultimate Nerd Box.

Ultimate Nerd Box is a subscription box service catering to collectors and enthusiasts of nerd culture. Each box will have a great selection of items fitting into that month's theme. For $20 a month you can get a box of ultimate nerdy goodness. Each box will have a $50+ value and will be FULL of awesome collectibles. I am familiar with the other Nerd based subscription boxes and I will provide a better experience than most of them from day 1. The priority is YOU the subscriber!

I've been collecting comics and collectibles almost my whole life and I have a real passion for the hobby. I like subscription boxes because they can bring forth new, interesting ideas and products to the forefront. People get to enjoy things they may not have known about before.

I have done a lot of research about what works and what doesn't in these types of boxes. What I am going to do with Ultimate Nerd Box is provide both the expected and the unexpected in the best possible way. Everybody expects cool figurines, exclusive items from popular brands, clothing items, comics and cool knick knacks. Ultimate Nerd box will deliver on those fronts. There will also be cool unexpected items as well. These items can be signed merchandise or a newer type of collectible that most people don't know about. I will reach out to up and coming producers with original, cool ideas and licenses.

A problem I find a lot of people have is poor customer support experiences. People are getting damaged product or worse yet no box at all. They contact customer support and they are put on a long waiting list or they just get ignored. This won't be an issue with Ultimate Nerd Box. I'm not going to sit here and tell you there won't ever be problems. There shouldn't be many problems with good planning and care to detail but they always seem to crop up anyway here and there. We will take care of any and all customer complaints in a quick and efficient manner. We won't leave you hanging, that is a personal guarantee!

 Another problem people have is duplicate items. The person opening the box already has that Spiderman Pop figure in his collection. I am going to do something that I don't believe has been done before to sooth that pain. In the event of a duplicate the customer would take a photo of themselves with both items. They send us the photo and they will get an extra item in their next box, perhaps even personalized to them.

As the customer base grows so will the exclusives, eventually all the items should be exclusive. Exclusive items will be available in every box. A referral program is in the works and should debut with the second or third box. Look for the website within 2 weeks of successful funding.

Themes

 The first box will ship in June and will be extremely limited. The theme of the first box is The Founders, or YOU! There will only be 250 boxes available and everybody that signs up will be a founder. Being a founder has certain benefits. Every box you receive after that first box will have at least 1 extra item in it. That's not all, being a founder has advantages within the coming referral program. If the target goal is to refer 7 people to get a free box a founder would have to refer 1 less or 6 people to get a free box. Within this kickstarter campaign becoming a founder is easy. Many of the reward tiers have the Founders box as an incentive.

With your assistance Ultimate Nerd Box will be the box to beat. The funding obtained will be used to get a first shipment of boxes and packing material, some of the first stock as well as advertising. Thank you so much for checking out this campaign and I hope to see your name on the subscription sheet to be a founder of Ultimate Nerd Box. Following is a few samples from my Captain Cabbagehead comic strip, enjoy!

Captain Cabbagehead got a job as an ice cream taste tester. He lost the job after 5 weeks because he would eat all of the tasty ice cream and not eat the gross flavors.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge at first would most likely be shipping. While I am confident it won't cause any big problems I have not yet ironed out every
scenario that could occur and I may not be able to until the second or third box. This is one reason why I am limiting the number of first boxes. I built the whole Alpha Box and Founders theme around that problem.
