Wood Phone Cases?
We came across the idea for much the same reason we choose to make anything... it was really hard to find a decent phone case, let alone a case with a high quality wood aesthetic. So we decided to make an initial prototype (pictured below) with some extra thin veneer we had in our shop, leftover from making longboards. Showing this wood backed phone to friends at a party, and seeing their excitement, inspired us to keep iterating.
We took the idea and ran with it. After a year of refinement we launched our first Kickstarter to help get our first wood phone cases off the ground. That was a year and a half ago and we have improved at a rapid pace ever since, thanks in large part to the support we received from backers here on Kickstarter.
Some of our Kickstarter supporters used their cases so much that there was barely anything left. Looking at them after such extensive use allowed us to see where the most wear and tear was occurring and as a result, improve the overall process and design.
For this Kickstarter we have created a real wood case that will truly last. Pictured below are just a few recent customers who couldn't wait to make the switch to something more natural.
Here's a behind the scenes look at how we will precisely make your premium wood phone case.
We will build and ship your new case as soon as possible!
Risks and challenges
We have been in business since 2011. About a year and a half ago we launched a Kickstarter campaign to help get our first line of wood phone cases off the ground. Thanks to the amazing support we received, we have been able to make incredible strides.
We are on Kickstarter now with an entirely new line of our most advanced and widest selection of smartphone cases to date.
We are also providing the ability for up to 50 individuals to submit their custom designs to us. This will certainly be one of the biggest challenges we face having never dealt with so many individual custom orders at the same time. This is exactly why we are on Kickstarter though, to be able to understand and work through these issues with those who support us at that pledge level. The information and experience we gain through this campaign will be invaluable to us as we understand all the ways to improve our custom creation process.
Overall, there are certainly many risks and challenges associated with offering a natural and handcrafted product to the world. That said, our experience making wood products and phone cases in particular means we are confident in our ability to deliver on everything we are promising.
