Nice things people are saying about our pens:
Coolmaterial - "We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again–the guys at BIGiDESIGN know pens. They’re better at launching, and delivering, Kickstarter pens than anyone else..."

The Clicky Post - "The Solid Titanium Pen is awesome and is still a fan favorite, but the approach to making it better was a great decision...Out of the Ti series of pens produced by BIGiDESIGN, I feel this finish is by far the most industrial and best looking. Bravo guys."

Everyday Carry - "Pens are a dime a dozen on Kickstarter, but one pen recently caught my eye—the Ti-Post RAW...it takes a slew of refills and there's the tactile pleasure of the raw titanium bar feel. "

The Pen Addict: Brad Dowdy - "Be sure to check it out if you are looking for a great EDC (Every Day Carry) titanium pen. I did."

Hi Kickstarters,
You spoke, We listened.

We had a ton of requests and great feedback from our Solid Titanium Pen + Stylus project and wanted to show everyone that we take your suggestions to heart. The combination of your good suggestions, our best selling pen, and our constant drive to improve came together to make the all new Ti POST RAW Pen + Stylus.

A versatile titanium pen for life +
We have a deep passion for versatile everyday carry items and strive to make purposeful objects that we can eventually pass down for generations. Objects that our children have seen us use on a daily basis, care for, & keep track of throughout the years. We personally don't like to carry a lot of stuff everyday in our pockets so the objects we do must be well-made, versatile, and have a purpose.

Manufacturing, Production, & Fulfillment Plan
Making unique products from scratch is something we are very comfortable with doing. We have been working for many months to ensure everything is lined up to get started once we have the necessary funding in place. We enjoy sharing exclusive info, images, and news about the projects to keep everyone involved in the production process and share what it takes to make the pens from scratch. Every pen and part is made using high-precision CNC machines just like our past projects.

Everything is now ready to get started once the project funding period ends. We are excited to start production and will personally oversee the manufacturing and QC process like we have with our previous projects.

Estimated Production Timeline
• Order materials & Start CNC Production of the pens - Early & Mid April
• QC of the pens - End of May
• Sort, Label, Pack, and Ship out all the rewards - Early to Mid June
Tracking numbers will also be emailed out to everyone after the pens ship out.

Why do we need your help?
We've spent many months working on getting the current prototypes to this stage. When you back the project, you will help us meet the minimum order quantities to purchase these materials in bulk. These bulk discounts are how we will be able to make these high quality titanium pens for such an amazing price for every backer.

Risks and challenges

We have put a lot of work, time, and thought into each aspect of what it will take to successfully complete this project. Our biggest challenge will be meeting our shipping delivery dates if the project is extremely over funded. Taking a product from a prototype into mass production will always surface new challenges that have to be addressed. It takes time and patience to make the right call and can even lead to minor changes and tweaks in the appearance than what the prototypes currently show. We have experience with large scale manufacturing and have established solid relationships with our time-tested manufacturing partners to minimize our risks and to help deliver the best rewards possible for backers.
