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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

DroodleBooks are the world's first notebooks with unique coloring designs in the top margin of every page.

These beautiful, professional notebooks are designed in the US and manufactured in Germany from the highest quality materials.

Adult coloring books aren’t designed for professional (and often stressful) environments. DroodleBooks encourages doodling and coloring in these environments while being disguised as a practical notebook.

The designs only take up the top margin of the pages, where space is typically wasted or used for a single title or date. By serving as a productivity tool as well as a meditative outlet, DroodleBooks will benefit the personal and professional lives of many.

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

  • Vegan Leather Hardcover: The pages are bound in an A5 notebook with a vegan leather hardcover. You might be wondering - what is vegan leather? Vegan leather is synthetic leather that is sleek and timeless. However, unlike genuine leather, it is animal friendly and environmentally sound. 
  • American Designed, German Engineered: DroodleBooks are American-designed notebooks, made and imported from Germany. This was a critical decision when examining quality and precision. 
  • 160 Pages with 20 Unique Designs: 20 unique designs sit across the top of each page and were carefully selected from artists across the world. (Each design repeats 4 times throughout the book) 
  • Illustrations Sourced from Around the World: We worked closely with incredible artists from Croatia, Venezuela, Italy, India and Mexico to develop and curate the best designs to excite a different part of your imagination. 
  • High Quality, Recycle Paper: Sustainability is very important to us. We use only the highest quality, 90 gram recycled paper that won't let your coloring bleed through to the next page. 
  • Elastic Closure Strap: Keep your book nice and tidy with our utility closure strap. This feature secures loose papers on the inside of your notebook. A no-mess feature! 
  • Fabric Bookmark: Never lose your place by using the page-holder bookmark - made of soft and durable fabric. Elastic Pen Holder: Have a favorite pen? Always keep it close to your DroodleBook with the convenient pen holder feature. 
  • Environmentally Sound: We want to leave our mark on our Droodlers, but not on the environment. All the decisions we make, we make with an environmentally conscious mind.

We have no traditional investors. Instead, we are launching here on Kickstarter. The funds we raise here not only go towards paying for our talented artists and manufacturing, but also help us design future products and will enable us to test small batch custom designs and manufacturing.


 

 

 

 In recent years, studies have proven that coloring reduces stress and longhand notes improve retention of information. Team Droodle’s mission is to do just that! We saw the need for a notebook that incorporates both the creative, stress- managing elements of coloring with the functional benefits of a professional notebook. By serving as a productivity tool as well as a meditative outlet, DroodleBooks will benefit the personal and professional lives of many.       

 

 

Hey Droodlers, if you've made it this far then you must enjoy learning about the benefits and features of our DroodleBooks. So, check out this TED talk about the power of doodling! Then make sure you back this project so you can get in on the action.

 

Risks and challenges

The greatest potential risk for any physical product is manufacturing and shipping. The good news is that we have already manufactured over 1,000 units for testing and distribution.

DroodleBooks has been working with our manufacturers for almost a year to perfect the printing and binding. A German manufacturer was selected after testing several other manufacturers because of their precision and quality. We have sourced the best possible materials in order to create DroodleBooks.

Our goal was to ship DroodleBooks before the holiday season. However, we didn't want to fall short of our promised delivery date and have now committed to providing your books in January 2017. Our biggest risk will be to ensure your Holiday Tags arrive before Christmas. We are confident we will be able to make this happen so you can spread holiday cheer!

We guarantee that all DroodleBook orders will be received and you will officially be part of Team Droodle! If problems do come up or you aren’t happy with your DroodleBook, we promise to do everything we can to make it right. Remember - our product is all about reducing stress! :)
