UPDATE

That's us hit our goal and our first stretch goal! This means that everyone who has kindly pledged will receive a 15% discount code for our website; The Battle Grid is now unlocked, all dice boxes will be felt lined and 2 new designs for the front of our dice towers and DM screens will be available to choose from (Designs will be released shortly)

We are now well on our way to our 2nd stretch goal of £1000! Because of the unexpected success of our project we will be updating our project to add a further stretch goal of £1250 which will unlock new upgrades and a new product!

Thanks again for all your fantastic support!

Who Are We?

Fandomonium are a manufacturer and retailer of homeware, collectables and accessories aimed at pop culture fans and tabletop gamers. We are based in the heart of the UK in Hinckley, Leicestershire and regularly attend Comic Conventions in the UK as well as selling through our website www.fandomonium.co.uk

We started off using our CNC laser machine and Heat Transfer machine to personalise and customise products such as boxes, tankards and tshirts. After doing the convention circuit for 4 years, we realised a large number of our customers were using our products for accessorising their d&d games and, being gamers ourselves, decided to dip our toes into the unknown waters of manufacturing. 

Months of trial and error later and our dice tower and DM screens were born.



 What makes your products  different?
 

Our aim from the start was to make tabletop accessories affordable for all levels of gamer, without relying on inferior materials or shipping from far abroad. 

The first thing we realised when shopping to kit out our own table was the relative lack of manufacturers making these kinds of accessories in the UK: the majority of products matching our requirements were shipped from the USA or China.

The second was price point. Those products we did find made closer to home were priced at a point which many of the gamers we spoke too found too expensive. 

By using furniture-grade ply and locally grown timbers sourced from within a 50 mile radius, we’ve been able to keep our costs down and our quality levels up and make what we genuinely think are some of the best entry-level RPG accessories in the country. 


Okay, so you’ve already got a laser machine and you’re already making products- Why do you need to do a kickstarter?! 

Simply put, we know we can do better! The popularity of our existing products is taking over our small space! Where we previously had a warehouse full of stock waiting for personalisation and customisation, we now have a warehouse full of stock AND materials AND we need assembly space!

Fortunately we’ve been granted the space to expand and move the manufacture outside the warehouse and into a custom built workshop.

A work in progress..
A work in progress..

This is where you, our fans, come in.

We’re asking for supporters to help us buy in the machinery we need to not only improve the existing line of products, but expand our capabilities.

With your help we will be able to build:

  • A finishing station with sanding and buffing machines.
  • Drill presses to speed up fitting hardware with precision.
  • Dust extraction and filtration systems to save us from choking! 
  • A dedicated painting and varnishing area.
  • Storage for components.

With all of this we would be able to manufacture a wider variety of products and, crucially, have enough stock to offer full customisation.

Want your character name on your dice box? Your name on your DM screen? Have a party logo or character family crest you want on your dice box? 

 With the ability to manufacture more stock more efficiently, our laser and heat press and, crucially, our time, will be freed up to offer you a truly bespoke and unique range.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk we can imagine is actually our ideal scenario! If we smash through our stretch goals and have an over-abundance of rewards to make, the chances are we may have to push back our delivery date. We have taken this into account somewhat with our estimates, and would like to be able to get rewards out before the date stated.
