Sawyer Sunglasses - High Quality Floating Wooden Sunglasses

$6,197

10% of our Kickstarter funds will be donated back to the Kickstarter community to support other projects!

Goal

In order for this campaign to be successful, we need your help to fund initial manufacturing costs. The money will go towards building our inventory, beginning ad campaigns, and hopefully building displays. All of these are in an effort to jumpstart sales on our website as well as wholesaling to retailers. This Kickstarter Campaign is your chance at becoming the first to wear a pair of our sunglasses and your chance to receive discounted pricing.

*Measurements Below are given as (Lens Width-Nose Width-Temple Length) in millimeters*

Receive a carrying case ($20 value) if our campaign reaches $5,000 and a Sawyer decal (as well as a case) if we reach $10,000.

Manufacturing

As for our timeline, we currently have an inventory of 50 pairs of sunglasses in the various styles and lens colors. Our manufacturer is established and open to any orders we may have. We plan on building our inventory towards the end of our Kickstarter campaign if we have raised enough money in order to quickly fulfill all orders. 

Also, in the case where our inventory cannot meet demands, almost all orders we make to our manufacturer will be fulfilled to us in 2 weeks maximum, leaving about only another week for fulfillment to our customers.

Legal

In terms of legality, the style of some of these sunglasses may look similar to others you have seen before, because, numerous companies use the classic "Wayfarer" style created by Rayban. It is a common style across all different brands of sunglasses companies assuring the legality of our design.

Our Story

We started Sawyer Sunglasses as two college students looking to identify ourselves with something bigger. We believe that connecting a memory to an image is not something any camera can do. An image in your mind can never be reproduced nor replicated in any other format, so it is our mission to enhance that image. When you look back on your life, those rare instances and memories tie together to create a timeline of who you are today. Our mission is for each of our customers to get more out of the experiences they live. Become a part of our journey by helping us with our campaign.

Risks and challenges

No manufacturing issues are anticipated. While we expect to ship our sunglasses immediately upon the conclusion of this campaign, there is always the chance of a delay due to extraneous circumstances.
