Nerdwax is super simple and can be used in 3 easy steps!

We think we know what you're thinking...

and made a video to prove it!

So, Why Kickstarter?

We love the Kickstarter community and think it's the perfect place to launch nerdwax.

We need to raise enough money for the first ever production run of nerdwax!!

Our Friends & Family have been enjoying the benefits of nerdwax for a few years now, on both prescription eyewear and sunglasses...

Now we are excited to share it with you!

The Plan:

Our Kickstarter Project will be completed in the 90 days following the end of our successfully funded campaign and be broken up into 2 stages.

(S1) STAGE 1

Day 1-30

During Stage 1 we will be:

  • Assembling all raw materials for the full project
  • Producing the first 1,000 Tubes of nerdwax
  • Shipping nerdwax to all Early Birds & S1 Backers

(S2) STAGE 2

Day 31-90

During Stage 2 we will be:

  • Prepping materials for S2 Production
  • Producing nerdwax for all S2 Backers
  • Shipping nerdwax to all S2 Backers 

 We have already secured the sourcing for all materials and ordered test quantities to ensure the quality of all ingredients and packaging. 

I think it's time we talk about REWARDS!!

first things first... we have put together

*2 EARLY BIRD SPECIALS*

for the first 100 backers

Get your hands on some of the first batch of nerdwax at a great price before it's GONE!

Well those went quicker than I anticipated... 

We just added another level since so many of you we're hoping to get tubes from the First Batch... get them while you can!!

You can't say I didn't warn you...

April 21st - We just released a very cool update to the campaign... check it out here!

You're not going to find any T-Shirts or Chotchkie's in our backer levels! 

It's not that we hate T-shirts or anything... I'd actually love a nerdwax hoodie personally... but we really just want to stay focused on making nerdwax!

We do have some plans for accessories we might add as upgrades if we hit our goal early in the campaign, and we'd love to hear what you might want in that scenario!

But for now it's all nerdwax.

Higher Level Backers will be rewarded with tailored quantities, shipping options, and priority status.

We've tried to keep it as simple as possible while offering what we think are some great reward tiers!    

 

 *S1 = Stage 1 Delivery  ::  *S2 = Stage 2 Delivery

If you have any questions you can't find the answer to on this page, please don't hesitate to send us a message!

We'll do our best to get right back to you! 

Risks and challenges

Although this will be the first large-scale production run of Nerdwax; we have been making, packaging and shipping small quantities for a few years now, and we are confident in our ability to deliver the offered rewards to our backers as promised!

We have estimated this Kickstarter will allow us to do a first run between 1,000 and 5,000 tubes but we also want to be prepared for any unforeseen challenges, or quantities greater than 5,000, so just to be safe we have given ourselves margin on both Stage 1 and Stage 2 delivery estimates.

Whatever happens, if we hit our goal or nerdwax is an internet sensation and we raise more money than the pebble watch... we want you to know that we are dedicated to making sure you are in the know from the time you pledge to the first time you apply nerdwax to your favorite glasses.

Our family and friends love nerdwax and we are sure you will too... but we are counting on you to help us make nerdwax the best possible product it can be!

We can't promise that everything will go perfectly with the production and shipping of nerdwax... but we can guarantee that if you make us aware we will always make it right and learn from our mistakes.

We are so excited you are willing to partner with us in making nerdwax a reality!

We can't thank you enough!!
