Tired Of Dirty Cup Pile-Ups? So Were We!

We were tired of the dirty cups that accumulated throughout the day with little ones. As designers, we knew we could do better. That's why we created PhillUp.

PhillUp is a simple, beautiful and highly functional kid cup that hangs up on your fridge. Now kids and friends can help themselves. Together we can strip away the clutter and focus on what matters most... our families!

Quotes From Some of Our Supporters:

  • "This is Brilliant!" - Brig Wilson, Nike
  • "These crazy cute PhillUp cups by Puj are a new favorite for our fruit water!" - Joy Cho, Oh Joy!
  • "Where has this been all my life?" - Erin Lane, BabyCenter 
  • "The kids will love the independence of grabbing their own cup and getting a drink themselves." - 100 Layer Cakelet 
  • "One cup all day long. I love it:" - Our Stable Table

The PhillUp System

Beyond The Kitchen

How We Got Here

It all starts with an idea...an idea that life could be made to be more simple and less cluttered. At Puj, we strive to design products that are so simple and so clever that when people see them for the first time they will say, "That is brilliant!".  We are happy to say, we think we have done it again with PhillUp. This system grew out of our experience with kids leaving out cups and covering the counter tops despite our best efforts. If the kids' friends or cousins came over...forget about it! 

Our in-home testing with samples of PhillUp has shown that we are onto something really great. Kids love it and parents love it. We think you will agree and we can't wait for you to try Phillup for yourself. We are very excited to share with you how far we have come. 

Timeline

NOW and WOW is one of our values. It's important to us that we deliver on time and that you're happy as a clam when it arrives on your doorstep.

As soon as we meet our funding goal we will begin production of Phillup. We will need 30-60 days for that, plus some QC time, then some transit time. We are confident we will have Phillup ready for you by May. We are so happy to have you along on this journey.

OK, Let's Talk Rewards!

 

Meet The People Behind The Product

Meet Katie the designer. Meet Ben the designer. They are attending the same university. Katie looks like she needs a little help with her sketching. Being a year ahead and confident in his abilities, Ben approaches Katie and says, “Ahem, let me show you how to do this.” One sketch turned into two and eventually Ben and Katie married and moved to the Northwest to design for competing design firms.

Soon they both felt the need to be parents and Katie has stayed home with their three boys ever since. Having designed products for numerous name brand product companies like Nike, HP, Vans, Burton, Proctor & Gamble, Yakima, and others, it just seemed natural to start designing products of their own that helped them raise their own children.

All the products we make are a result of the insights we have gained as parents and designers.

The Puj Team

Thanks goes to the Puj team and to all of those who made his project possible. You know who you are. Matt, James, Peter, John, Joe, Leah, Clay.  Thanks to Clay Hebert from CrowdfundingHacks.com, Leah Wright from www.leahnaomi.com, and Tel Stewart. You are the best!

Why Kickstarter?

We are continuously inspired by the innovative ideas that are shared on Kickstarter. We are even more inspired by the amazing people that rally around projects and support the dream to create something new.

A little kickstart from our incredible customers and fans would go a long way towards helping us place a large enough order to meet the minimum order quantities that our factories require. 

Puj is excited to expand our product line, but we need your support in order to make it happen.

New to Kickstarter? No Worries!

Here's a quick run down on how this all works..

Kickstarter allows new ideas to come to life through community support. Project creators (like Puj) set a funding goal and deadline. If people like the product, they can pledge money to make it happen.

Pledging money to a Kickstarter campaign is easy. It's essentially the same as pre-ordering a product. For example, if we reach our funding goal of $30,000, Puj will be able to initiate our first big production run of Phillup. The product will be manufactured and sent out to all of our wonderful supporters this spring! If for some reason the campaign does not reach the funding goal, all backers money will be refunded in full.

Risks and challenges

We have come a long way in the development of Phillup. The design, prototyping, sampling, and testing have all been completed. Even the steel molds for manufacturing have been made so we could create and test a few samples of Phillup like you see in the project photos. This has allowed us to already make some improvements to the prototypes and to get a few samples safety tested to ensure that Phillup meets and exceeds product safety standards in the USA, Canada and the EU. We are confident that we can deliver product to our backers before the estimated arrival time. We have planned extra time for manufacturing, unforeseen events, and transit times. The manufacturing process can always bring unexpected delays. However, as they say, this is not our first rodeo. :)

In the next 30 days, we will be tweaking our sample parts then initiating a full production run and delivering Phillup to all of you. Here are some areas where your pledge money will help to make Phillup a reality:

-Minimum Order Quantities for the first bulk order (Factories often require MOQs in the thousands of units per color)

-Quality Control and Development trips to manage and oversee development with our partners to ensure that we deliver the very best quality product right on time.

If there happen to be any delays, we will notify our backers immediately and work around the clock to deliver the product as quickly as possible.

Let's do this!
