About this project
Bodacious Cases is a new and innovating cell phone case and accessories company that has recently created excitement in the retail industry with the launch of its first product, the Band-It Case.
This unique case allows consumers the option to accessorize their phones accordingly to match their outfit, favorite sports team or their favorite charity. With as little as $8.99 you can fully customize your case color without the expenses of multiple cases.
The Band-It Case, which fits the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, is a water-resistant two-piece snap together case that comes with an interchangeable colored band. You will also have the option to purchase additional bands for multiple case combinations.
The cases come in two styles, one with a credit card slot and one without a credit card slot. The case with the credit card slot can hold (2) two credit cards and an I.D. or (8) eight business cards.
Both cases are available in (6) six colors: black, white, red, pink, dark green and blue (with dark green coming soon)
The bands are available in (12) twelve colors: black, white, red, pink, blue, orange, grey, dark blue, and purple (with yellow and dark green coming soon). The Band-It bands are available in two styles, one with port coverings for additional protection and one without port coverings.
The Bodacious Mission
Our mission is to provide an all-in-one multi-purpose iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S cases that fulfills as many needs as possible while at the same time protecting one of your most valuable assets. We want to be #1 in customer service, with a loyal customer following, and have a 100% USA made case with several options to choose from. In short, we want to be to the cell phone case industry what Apple is to the computer industry!
iPhone 5 Design
Here are some drawings of The Band-It Case for the iPhone 5, we are on our second prototype and are ready for manufacturing. Look at all the team logos around the drawings, you can match almost all of them with our cases :)
Why we feel this product is needed?
Want an all in one, water-resistant, protective, durable, sleek and thin, yet stylish 100% American Made iPhone case?
When I first came up with the idea I wanted an all in one, water-resistant, protective, durable, sleek and thin yet stylish 100% American made iPhone case. After hours and hours of research and talking to hundreds of people I believe I have not only what I want but what many others have always wanted in a case. When I started searching for a case did I find what I wanted? Yes, but what I wanted was in 3-4 cases. Obviously I can’t have 3-4 cases on my phone at once because that’d look funny and I’d need a lot of super glue. I wanted all of these things in one case, I wanted a 100% American Made iPhone case, I wanted to be able to change my colors of my case with one case and I couldn’t find that, so I decided to make one. I feel this is a product that people want and need because nearly every one has a smart-phone now and we use it for personal and as well as business. We take it to work, to bed with us, we take it to Church and we even take it to family get togethers. We do this because we want to take videos, take pictures of our loved ones and most of us do business on our phones. If you loose or damage your phone, it's like having your life gone. I like telling people that it's like having your life in your pocket. So why not protect it? I know myself personally I use my phone ALL the time and I drop it and kick it across floors to show people the durability of it. I want a product that will protect my phone and that will keep my phone safe. I want something that I can slide in and out of my pocket easily without feeling you have a brick on your hip.
"I wanted something different and unique, something bodacious. With the Band-It Case, you have a case that isn’t bulky and will slide in and out of your pocket easily. Basically, it’s like having your life in your pocket." said Arianna Russell.
I invented the Band-It Case because I wanted options. I wanted what I couldn't find. I decided that having cases that offer something people can fully customize to match their favorite colors, teams, outfits, logos, businesses was huge. But I also felt it was even more important to give them something to decide past that. Want a case with a credit card slot but you don't want the band with port coverings for extra protection? Then buy an addition band for $8.99 and you can have that.
Want a case without a credit card slot, but you want the added protection of band with port coverings? PERFECT! With the Band-It Case you can choose a case with credit card slot or without and with port coverings or without. It literally allows you to be the one that designs your case. Pick what you want and match what you want. I don't want to be the one that tells people what they can and can't have. I want people to choose it themselves. It's like changing your clothes. You buy things to match things because you want them too...well now you can do that with your iPhone case :)

Risks and challenges
FUNDING USE AND WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
I am here raising funds to help take Bodacious Cases to the next level. Keeping our products 100% Made in the USA has been quite the challenge. From getting people telling me to "Go to China, it's cheaper" and people telling me "You'll save money if you go to China" to "You will never make it if you stay here, it's not possible." Well I fought and fought to keep my company here and I did it!
My parents and I have taken nearly every penny we own to get this company launched and to keep it here, but now we need your help to take it to the next level.
We are using the funds we raise from Kickstarter for tooling and to begin production of the iPhone 5 case and to expand our current colors on the iPhone 4/4S cases. If we do not reach our goal of $20,000 we do not receive any of the funds, so please help spread the word and help us reach our goal. With your help and your friends and family we can begin the design of the iPhone 5 and get more colors to choose from for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S cases.
My father is a Vietnam Veteran and my mother is the best lady in the entire world and she would do ANYTHING for anyone and I want to keep my products made here. My parents are the reason I am who I am today and where I am at. I want to help people and I want to keep our jobs local. I feel that it's important to help the USA and to help our neighbors have jobs. If we loose that then we've lost everything. I believe in doing things because we want to and I believe in going with your gut. That is why I didn't give in and that is why I stayed and made my products here :)
We will do our very best to try and get all products for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S cases and rewards sent out by Christmas BUT WE CANNOT GUARANTEE IT DUE TO FUNDING. But will do our best!!
