We are super excited to be back with our 24th project and show you our latest patent-pending design that we call the Ti Click EDC (Everyday Carry).
A timeless titanium click pen designed to play well with others.
Until now, if you wanted ditch your cheap plastic click pen and upgrade to a more professional pen, you had to lock yourself into a pen with a preset length that would fit your favorite refill inside or do some ninja-style hacking to make it fit inside.
Our new click pen completely changes the game for good and allows you to have more freedom over what refill, length, and tip size works best for you...all in a timeless titanium design that will gather compliments for a lifetime.
Why EDC? (Everyday Carry)
Simply said, EDC is all about focusing on what objects you have with you everyday. The key/crucial items that have purpose, value, and help you do what you do well throughout your day. We prefer to carry fewer, high-quality, and extremely versatile objects that let us do more and carry less. Premium EDC gear that builds and attaches memories to them in the hopes that both can be passed down to future generations.
Adapt. Outlast. Repeat.
This world is constantly changing and companies quickly come and go. We've seen major brands and refill companies discontinue entire lines of pens/refills in the short time we've been around. Ultimately making their pens completely obsolete once the ink is gone.
Making a pen out of metal so it will last a lifetime is only half of the solution to us, it has to intuitively adapt and have the ability to use a wide variety of refills, brands, and sizes well; not just the refills that a pen/refill company controls the ultimate fate of.

Our company (Big Idea Design LLC) started back in 2011 after our very first kickstarter project. So, to us it simply feels like home. We don't have (or want) any investors so we bring our new products to the kickstarter community. We simply love being an active part of this community and making unique products with our backers that are both affordable and built to last.

Risks and challenges
This is our 24th kickstarter project so we are very comfortable knowing what it will take to bring this project to a successful completion. The only risk we foresee would be shipping a little bit later than the estimated dates show if the project is extremely over-funded. We have planned in extra time but if a production or shipping delay happens, we will let update everyone know about it ASAP through a project update. The pens shown are also functional prototypes and the minor design elements or dimensions may need to be slightly adjusted during mass production to ensure we produce the best pens we can for everyone.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
