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

Hi! I’m Annia and if you are like me, your pet is not only one your best friends but also a member of your family. I have a dog and have many friends and family with either cats and /or dogs and they are considered members of the family. I personally celebrate my dog’s (Sydney) birthday and include her in family celebrated holidays. Sydney is now 11 years old and in the 11 years since we adopted her, not once have I been able to find pet themed gift wrap in stores or easily found online. I started making dog themed wrapping paper for Zazzle, however by the time It was all said and done the price was way too high for customers.  

MY OBJECTIVE  

I would like to create fun pet themed gift wrap and eventually gift tissue paper, gift boxes, bags, gift tags, and other fun pet themed products. I have other great ideas and I’m looking forward to sharing that with you guys, but one project at a time.  

WHAT WILL YOUR PLEDGE WILL DO?  

While I’m able to create the designs on my tablet on my own time, the printing, packaging, and shipping to my home is a big expense. I found several printing shops in the United States that can either print rolls or sheets, however I can have more of my designs printed if I purchase by the sheets rather than rolls. The minimum price locally for a minimum order of 1000-foot roll of one (1) design is $2500 for printing only. Your pledge will not only contribute to the production costs but will also go toward branding, copyrighting, and creating a platform for my products to be available via online. I also plan on visiting with purchasing at several pet shops when I’m not at work and hopefully creating enough sales to be able to print by the rolls and thus making my products more affordable to the customer. So, with that said, I really hope you like my designs, please check out what I’m working on my Prototype Gallery. I have budgeted for five (5) designs to be printed and I’m really looking forward for your input and helping me decide which designs make it as part of this project and sharing more designs as we go through this process together. 

 Here are more fun things that will be available If I can exceed my funding goal by: 

  $1000 – Print stickers and/or gift tags of a single design(s) of the repeat version. If we reach this goal, all $5 or more pledge level will include a gift tag or sticker of the initial chosen design.

  $1200 - Print two (2) additional sheet designs that you could help me choose from, I will be posting more designs as I create them. This will also provide a couple more choices for backer reward levels.

 $2200 - Print two (2) additional designs along with stickers and or gif tags mentioned above that you could help me choose from, I will be posting more designs as I create them. This will also provide a couple more choices for backer reward levels and gift tags or sticker of initial chosen design to all $5 or more pledge levels.

  $2700 - Print 1000 feet of one (1) additional design that you could help me choose from, I will be posting more designs as I create them. This will also provide one (1) more choice for backer reward levels.

  $5400 – Print 1000 foot rolls of two (2) additional designs that you could help me choose from, I will be posting more designs as I create them. This will also provide two (2) more choices for backer reward levels. 

 Beyond: If we approach new stretch goals there will be more backer rewards like gift tags and additional products! 

Risks and challenges

Of course, there are always unforeseen risks and challenges that can arise in creative projects, and while they cannot be controlled, I believe that life is about taking risks and living outside your comfort zone and the biggest risks you can take is by doing nothing at all. As an Engineer, I have learned to evaluate costs and weigh in risks and challenges and accounting for them as best as I can. I will never know if I do not take this risk.
