About this project
This Rock-solid collection offers a selection of 7 exclusive stone types. Each cover has its own authentic story to tell. It's simply a wonderful way to customise your MacBook. And yes, IT IS REAL STONE!
You can't possibly be more unique with this collection. Each and every cover will have a different pattern, texture and color! No two covers are or ever will be the same. So the cover you’ll receive might look very different from the cover in the photographs.
But that's what it's all about. That's what will turn your device into something personal, something that is naturally yours.
Choose your favourite stone type and model when the campaign ends! You can order as many as you want. Just make sure you pledge the right amount (x times the reward-price)
Easy to apply using the latest 3M technology.
Removable without doing any damage or leaving permanent residue behind.
A couple of years ago, we started noticing we spent more and more time working on our MacBooks and we were really looking for ways to customize our devices. Next we started dreaming about cases made of natural materials like wood and bamboo, as they are ALWAYS one-of-a-kind.
We kept on dreaming and thinking about where to go next, and that's when we thought: STONE!
When we first thought of stone, we didn’t know if it was possible at all.
It wasn't until we met Ryan, a fellow entrepreneur, who had found a special technique that could be useful for our idea! And oh was it useful!
You probably wonder how we are able to achieve such thin pieces, without breaking the stone? Well we're here on Kickstarter to show you!
Ryan found a way to peel a thin layer of stone directly from a big block of metamorphic stone.
Thin veneers of stone are pulled away from the original thicker stone slabs by adhering a thin layer of cotton first. When the resins cure, the cotton is "pulled" or "stripped" away taking with it a thin layer of stone. There is no grinding of the surface to make it thinner! Pretty awesome, right!?
The remaining stone veneer will carry the color and texture of the original stone it is pulled from. They are very lightweight and they vary in thickness, color and texture.
These veneers are perfect for the product we had in mind!
Once we figured this out, we worked tirelessly on crafting those veneers into beautiful MacBook covers and Phone cases. Each piece is precision-designed to the dimensions of your MacBook or Smartphone.
Every cover is hand finished into the final product with care and precision in our very own workshop in Belgium.
It took us almost 1 year to get from idea to the product we are able to offer you today. And truth be told, we’re damn proud of the result!
Shipping costs will be automatically calculated once you select a reward. Depending on where you live on the planet, shipping costs will vary.
We provide tracking as soon as we have your product packed and the shipping label slapped onto it!
Please note that depending where you are in the world, there may be additional duties, fees or taxes raised by the authorities in your country. You may need to take care of them when receiving the shipment.
Thanks for having a look at our project! Our reach only goes so far beyond our personal network. It would take us a long way if you took two seconds to share our project with friends and family. THANK YOU!
Risks and challenges
Using the experience from our last Kickstarter we feel extremely confident in our ability to execute everything necessary to run another successful campaign. We know how to get the job done and know how to do it right.
We spent almost 1 year designing, developing and iterating to get to our finalized product. Our production is on stand-by. Thanks for all the support, really! We are so excited to take this step with you guys, the Kickstarter community!
LEAD TIME & DELIVERY:
Knowing the exact timeline for production from start to finish is never an easy thing to judge. We're confident, however, that we can finish all orders within 60 days (worst case) upon the conclusion of this campaign. In the case that any delays do arise all backers will be informed immediately and kept up to speed with all updates! Shipping is one of the largest challenges with any project like this because it's one of the only aspects that we don't directly control. Shipping companies can make mistakes from time to time especially when packages are traveling across borders. However, we also understand that if a problem does present itself it's our duty to work with the shipping companies until you receive your skin. If at any time you have questions or concerns then please email us at email@example.com
