About this project

The mantramagnet is a multi-functional solution for displaying and storing fortunes and affirmations. It is magnetic, of course, and a perfect addition to any refrigerator in the kitchen. It is also balanced by design, and can stand on its own on a desk, table or nightstand. In addition, the interior compartment has room to store dozens of fortunes. Best of all, the magnetic snap closure makes it easy to change or update your collection (and it’s a little addictive once you snap it closed once or twice!).

Your pledge will help bring this product to life by funding the tooling that is required to produce the mantramagnet via injection molding. The final product will be made of beautiful high gloss polycarbonate.

Inspiration & Design Process

Hi everyone, I'm Dianne and this is my first Kickstarter project!

For years, I’ve had a photo frame on my desk with a couple of fortunes stuck inside. I also have a box of fortunes sitting in a drawer and a few more pinned to a corkboard in my art studio. I’ve never thought that these were ideal solutions, but there weren’t really any other options available. 

I wanted to design a simple product for people like me who hang on to fortunes that are meaningful to them. I really do believe that these messages can make a difference in your life when you see them every day.

Over the last several months, I’ve come up with tons of design ideas and functional prototypes. After testing and reworking many designs, I believe that I’ve created a simple design that is functional, fun and elegant.

The final step is to fine tune the design with the engineers at the factory and produce the molds that are required for injection molding to bring the "real" product to life - that's why I need your help!  Thanks so much for checking out my project and thanks in advance for your support!  

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge in bringing the mantramagnet to market is funding the high cost of tooling that is required for injection molding.

I have done my best to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project:

• I am currently finishing a 6 month development process and have several working prototypes in hand.

• I have a production schedule in place and am confident that my suppliers and vendors will be delivering on time.

• I have selected a manufacturer that has extensive experience in both full service custom injection molding and in-house precision mold making. 

• The factory that I have selected to manufacture and assemble the product is located in Los Angeles, and I will personally be overseeing the entire production process.

• I’ve worked for several startup companies and I know how much hard work and dedication is necessary to launch a new product!

I do not expect any technical risks, since I have worked extremely hard to get all the pieces in order before launching this campaign. However, there are always inherent risks of delay in the process when mass producing anything for the first time.

I will keep all backers up-to-date on the all the latest news, and will operate as transparently as possible so you can follow me on this amazing journey!
