What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

Using a combined approach of 3D printing and silicone casting techniques, IRON & GLORY has curated a special edition of bottle stoppers in 10 different designs. Organized into 2 groups, the complete Animal Edition consists of: Lions, Tigers, & Bears; and Dogs & Cats, each of which is available in four finishes: gold, silver, white and black.

DOGS & CATS includes:

  • American Bulldog 
  • Bull Terrier 
  • Doberman 
  • French Bulldog 
  • American Pit Bull Terrier 
  • Pug
  • Cat 

These breeds were selected for a variety of reasons. Molding is challenging new medium. We started with a larger pool of designs from which we then edit. Technical execution was also weighed with popularity. You won’t have to work hard to find Pugs and French Bulldogs in New York.

Stoppers are cast from hand poured resin in silicone molds. This results in a solid, dimensional product that captures incredible detail in each animal. The Animal Edition stoppers are then nested on a food-grade quality stainless steel cone bottle stopper that includes a rubber seal to ensure freshness.

Use the stoppers on your favorite bottle of wine, whiskey, gin, water, or whatever your beverage of choice. They also make a great gift as sleek perfect finishing touch for your home. 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

   

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

    

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

From our base of operations in Brooklyn, New York, maker brand IRON & GLORY currently fulfills orders to stores across the USA and select regions of the world.

From years of experience in bringing many new concepts to market, IRON & GLORY is confident in introducing casting as our newest enterprise. Scalability remains the greatest challenge for many small businesses, but our small team has been extensively planning and preparing for significant growth. We have outlined a timeline for fulfillment based on conservative estimate delivery dates, aiming to exceed expectation and shipping rewards ahead of schedule.

As a small business, customer service and communication with our backers remains our number one priority with regular updates and phone/email support at (855) 691 7446 or info@ironandglory.com, Monday through Friday 10am to 7pm.
