Risks and challenges

We have completed four large writing instrument projects over the past 3 years on Kickstarter and we will use this experience to successfully deliver your Ixion fountain pen.

Throughout this time, we have developed strong relationships with experienced manufacturers which is crucial to delivering a high quality product on time. We are using the same manufacturing techniques as our previous four projects and have developed a production prototype. The Ixion is ready to go into production.

We know that there can always be some unexpected delays during production but we have planned for this and extended our production schedule accordingly. Raw materials like bar stock can arrive late during busy periods of the year; machines can break down and require servicing. These are minor delays that can be absorbed easily into our production schedule, and which do not affect the feasibility of the project.

Another common challenge is fulfilling a project that exceeds its project funding goal significantly. To solve this potential issue we are working with large manufacturers that can produce our pens in any quantity realistically possible on Kickstarter. We do not anticipate any extension of the delivery date unless the project exceeds 2000 backers, at which point we would need to revise the manufacturing completion target date.

We are also working with a professional logistics and fulfilment company which will handle all shipping and packing operations to avoid any delays during the shipping phase of the project.
