Hi everybody,

it is already over 18 month from the moment I've decided to start EternalCase project on KickStarter. Thanks to your generous support I was able to produce the cases and try to make all this idea a sustainable business. But, unfortunately, it wasn't successful - nevertheless I have really good product (after few runs the quality is really superior now - check the reviews) I can't get steady sales. Last promo photo I have:

The production price and delivery expenses are pretty high - so to keep item price close to one you may get over the shop for regular flash drive I have to limit the margin. And when it comes to really effective advertising like AdWords - all the profit goes to Google. 

So I decided to eliminate my stock. Currently I have very limited amount of Titanium (12), Stainless Steel (7) & Aluminum (24) cases left and about a dozen of 32Gb USB 2.0 (13). Not all the cases are equipped with o-rings & key rings, but these are the things you may get elsewhere with no hassle. 

Finally, all I have is available under special prices over Etsy - check my store here: http://etsy.me/1htrucl

Delivery will take about 2 weeks to the US. Thank you very much for all the support you gave to me and my project!!!

And, as a good tradition, I want to share with you with one more Ukrainian project - it was not hard to find as there are only few from Ukraine running now.

It is Premium handmade leather goods - a project by 22 years old guy from eastern Ukraine. He produces classic leather accessories by himself. Rewards start from $12 and for $32 you may get awesome minimalist wallet or classical bi-fold wallet for $42. He spent already half a year producing them so you'll not receive anything like "first run" product. Aim of the project to equip his shop with laser cutting machine. So all the profit will be reinvested. Please, support his project here - http://kck.st/1sB60NY

      I don't think I have ever been so impressed with a project update before.

      "Thanks to your generous support I was able to produce the cases and try to make all this idea a sustainable business.

      That is probably the most mature and honest statement I have ever seen a creator make. Much respect Serhiy. I'll look forward to seeing what you get into next.

      I agree, sorry to hear not more bought them, Its quite nice to have some solid dureable ones. Ordered me a extra titanium, atleast these works after I forget them and give them a unfortunate wash.. ;)

      I am very sorry to read that these cases didn't have much success as a product, I assume that the distribution of hardware is always difficult when it comes to small companies or even more difficult for individuals.

      I would like to have another case, when I have little more money I will probably order some.

      Good luck and keep up, your idea was good (and a good flash drive on its own, it still works great, other flash drives I used in the past didn't work after a few months) :-)
