 This operation is done entirely in-house, by the two of us, from CAD model to finished part. We are not contracting out any step of the production process. Our metal shop is currently capable of producing 200 dice per week pre-kickstarter. Funds raised will be used to upgrade our equipment to meet higher production volumes.

Risks and challenges

We have already purchased & mastered all of the required equipment for production. We have been making dice prototypes for 2 years now and have a good understanding of the entire process. Initial production runs showed that we can sustain an output of ~200parts/week without any help from Kickstarter. The purpose of this campaign is to gauge the amount of interest in this product line and upgrade our casting equipment to meet demand within a 6 month delivery window.

We are very social and love communicating with others about our project. If you have any questions please feel free to message us through any of the channels listed in the bio or leave a comment on the Kickstarter page.
