About this project
With lots of dedication and love we have developed the aquabook that differs from every other water bottle ever produced: it is book-shaped, reusable and customizable. We want to support you to stay productive and strong - physically and mentally!
The aquabook combines convenience, design and sustainability - while keeping you hydrated and genius.
The aquabook genius formula: uniqueness = knowledge x style²
Staying hydrated is the key to performance, whether physical or intellectual - a lack of water is a lack of brainpower. Drinking eight to ten cups of water a day can improve your levels of cognitive performance by up to 30%. Therefore it is crucial to carry your water with you - wherever you are - whatever you do! Due to its genuine A5 format it fits easily in your purse or briefcase. The aquabook has a sleek design that perfectly matches your style. You can also combine your favorite aquabook and cap color freely to go along with your individual design. Make it YOUR aquabook. Designed and manufactured in Germany, it is 100% BPA and BPS free and of course long lasting due to highest quality. We care about sustainability: did you know that 3 litres (100 fl. oz) of water is needed in order to produce an ordinary 1 litre (33 fl. oz) plastic water bottle? By using the refillable aquabook, you will not only reduce plastic waste, but you will also save a significant amount of water.
Go for gold! We’ve received a lot of great support so far and we’re almost there. We want to say thank you with an eye-catching special edition you surely haven’t seen before:
To get your aquabook in gold you have to select our new reward: aquabook - Gold Edition
The aquabook comes in five different colors and the special Gold Edition:
The aquabook Safe Cap comes in six different colors:
Our latest development: the neoprene sleeve in cyan or black with grey or white trim. The sleeve makes sure your aquabook is protected and isolates your drinks in any climate.
Cleaning your aquabook is essential. We offer exclusive cleaning tabs and the aquabrush. These accessories will facilitate the cleaning procedure - ensuring that your aquabook is perfectly clean.
You can customize your aquabook the way you like it. We can print your favourite picture, pattern or statement even if you're only ordering one single aquabook. Making it your very own aquabook.
All products will be shipped carbon-neutral in biodegradable packaging. To give you the chance to improve the ecological footprint even more, a sachet of tree seeds will be added to every package.
We need your support for three things: pay for the tooling, produce the minimum order quantity and ship the aquabooks to you.
Risks and challenges
We are very confident that we will deliver your aquabook on time. We've spent a lot of time selecting the best production partners close to our premises and not somewhere on the other side of the world. That ensures better communication as we can personally check upon the progress. Nevertheless, unforeseeable problems can occur – e.g. a fire or shortages of raw materials. However, we will do everything we can to meet deadlines and we expect to even beat them, as we know how awful it is to wait for your newest acquisitions.
We will keep you updated on our progress every step of the way. Thus, if any difficulties occur, you'll be the first to know what is going on and what we'll do to address the problem. As a backer, you'll get full behind-the-scenes view of how we're progressing here in the aquabook labs.
When it comes to the product itself, our manufacturing partners and advisors combine more than 50 years of active blow molding experience and they are the best experts in their fields.
After producing viable prototypes we had various consultations with the raw materials manufacturer, so that we are sure that the aquabook and its accessories will be made on time and in the quality we - and you - demand.
We see our backers as our stakeholders and it's our #1 priority to meet your expectations. That's why we've chosen our advisory team very carefully with experienced colleagues that have already managed and shipped kickstarter campaigns successfully. Through that we want to ensure you, that even if problems occur we will be transparent in our communication, letting you know first hand about the campaign management and shipping.
The aquabook is made out of Eastman TRITAN® copolyester. The plastic is free of hazardous ingredients like Bisphenol A (BPA) and Bisphenol S (BPS). It is very durable, odourless and dishwasher and freezer safe.
The aquabook is made with a specialized blow molding process to ensure you get the highest quality.
The aquabook is completely made in Germany including the Safe Cap. We’ve focused on highest quality and found the best production partners to make it happen.
We’ve developed two effective cleaning solutions: First, the aquabrush, a cleaning brush that was exclusively designed to reach every spot of your aquabook. Secondly, we developed cleaning tablets to clean your aquabook perfectly within minutes. Four tablets are included on every aquabook package.
Yes, we ship the aquabook all over the world. No matter where you are, you’ll receive your aquabook as scheduled.
We can print any kind of motifs, statements or photographs in high resolution. Free your mind and transfer it on to your individual aquabook.
Sure, have a look at our examples for individualized aquabooks and write in the comments which print you want. We´ll print it again, just for you.
We need your sketch in PSD, AI, JPEG, PNG or PDF format and is has to have a resolution of at least 300 dpi to be printable the way you want it. The printable area is roughly 109 x 170 mm / 4,29 x 6,69 inch with the upper right corner cut of. Please see the sketch for detailed dimensions.
We developed a special stop mechanism on the aquabook as well as inside the Safe Cap. When you close the aquabook the mechanism guarantees the exact same position of the Safe Cap. So you always have the unique, slim and convenient shape of the aquabook.
Yes, it's completely free of hazardous materials like Bisphenol A (BPA) and Bisphenol S (BPS). We would never use bottles that contain BPA or BPS so consequently we don't sell bottles that contain those ingredients.
There will be a questionaire at the end of the campaign where you can state your aquabook and SafeCap colors as well as your extras.
There will be a questionaire at the end of the campaign where you can stat that you want your custom design.
