ELCO Coin Pouch 2nd Edition: Organize Your Change

CA$ 3,471

My story began almost a year ago when I became tired of having my change fall off of my pockets or scratch my smart phone. This is how I came to the idea of designing the ELCO coin pouch and I successfully launched my first kickstarter campaign.

Thanks to the support of and thoughtful comments from my backers, I learned a lot from this first experience. I also learned a lot about manufacturing on a small scale. For instance, I learned how extremely difficult it was to source and purchase good quality elasticated material in small quantities. I found out that most manufacturers required a minimum order of 3 km of material, and I also learned that Canada Post treated as parcels internationally shipped envelopes that are a hair thicker than standard letter envelopes and consequently the postage rate is much higher.
I received and am still receiving positive feedback about the quality, usability and satisfaction with this coin pouch along with numerous suggestions in favour of making it more colourful.
Now as I finally have a bit more time I decided to re-launch the ELCO pouch in a second edition with colourful trimmings in a choice of 6 colours: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Plain Black.

The new pouch has the same size and the same Velcro fasteners, and is made of the same high quality elastic material.

According my life philosophy of doing well by doing good, ELCO Second Edition Pouches will offer the same high quality that you can expect from a handcrafted product made with an uncompromising attention to detail in every single item.

ELCO elastic coin pouch also can be used as a HOLDER for Keys, SD cards, USB memory sticks, Earphones, Dice, Jewelry (in case you need to go for Ultrasound, or swimming pool, etc).

 Holder for Earphones

 Holder for the Key

 Holder for USB memory cards and sticks

 Holder for Dice

Holder for jewelry if you go to the pool or the beach for a swim or many other situations when you need to take off your jewelry. You will not lose it inside your pocket or bag with the ELCO pouch.

Risks and challenges

From the lessons learned in my experience with the first project, I will have to increase the shipping price (especially for Worldwide) in order to align it with the currently prevailing shipping rates.

Shipping worldwide is a big challenge and it is always difficult to specify the exact delivery date.
