Oh we are close! Manufacturing, flap hats & POS
Hope your week has started well 😊
So where are we at with bakslap manufacturing, your custom flap hats and the point of sale display box?
Manufacturing - Oh, we are so close to pushing the button on our first Production Run. After more samples, more testing in the field, there were some minor changes to the mold we still wanted to make – such as adding the website address and making the lock mechanism even stronger when extending the handle. These are being done as we speak. Next steps are to test these changes…then we can give the thumbs up. It’s approximately 6 weeks delivery from this point, in time for the coming Aussie summer.
Custom Flap Hats - With each of the Kickstarter pledges, you’ll receive our custom flap hats. Now we didn’t want to produce a hat just for branding sakes but rather create a one-of-a-kind detachable flap hat. So, when you’re enjoy the outdoors you have the added protection of a flat to cover your neck. Made in a lightweight, water friendly material splashed with some bakslap colours to spread the love.
Point of Sale Display Box - We’ve been meeting with a variety of early retailers to get their thoughts on effective ways to initially display bakslap in their store and on their shelves. Our team have taken their thoughts and we’ve created a point of sale we think is pretty cool to share our brand’s message. Our amazing graphic designer Erica Halse has started laying artwork and bringing this next project to life.
