Packaging

Hello Kickstarters!

It has been a productive week at Supr Good Co. ramping up the manufacturing of 8,500 Slims for our amazing backers.

While we have some great updates planned for Slim, we wanted to also show off the gorgeous packaging. Developing packaging is always fun - especially when you get to team up with an amazing printer like Studio On Fire. These guys crank out stellar work.

Last week we finished letterpress printing our Slim packaging on a spectacular Heidelberg press. It is truly impressive to watch these Iron Beasts in action. The material we used for the packaging comes from the Gruppo Cordenons Paper Mill near Boston, MA called Wild White 166C. The Wild White 166C is a new paper stock from that mill and we are excited for Slim and our backers to be part of its debut run.

This week we will be die cutting and boxing up the packaging for shipment.

We can't wait to show you photos of Slim in the packaging.

Team Supr.

      @Tyler, @Tal, @Schmidwr, and @Ruben we will be sending out the survey tomorrow (September 12th). We had a few backers moving and wanted to make sure we had the most current addresses possible as we start coordinating shipments.

      We have been hard at work @Борис! We barely had time to finish our celebratory pancakes before starting work in the factory.

    8. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 11, 2012

      We will @Ryan!

      I really can't wait to finally get my hands on my Slim wallet. I've already reduced my current, old, clumsy and thick wallet to an absolute necessary minimum in preparation for Slim :-)

    11. Wan Kit Fong on September 10, 2012

      @Supr, i think i owe you the int. shipping cost. How do i pay you the balance?

      I was also wondering when I would get that email.

    15. Tyler Vance on September 10, 2012

      when do those emails choosing our colors go out??

    16. Борис Сингх on September 10, 2012

      Have you guys been enjoying those pancakes? The packaging and letterpress looks beautiful. Congrats guys on getting your project funded.

    17. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      We agree @Ashley! Studio On Fire is the best.

    18. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      Working hard every day to make that happen @Connor!

    19. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      @Emil we will. The packaging is very simple.

    20. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      @Jason and @Dave we will get something posted on Vimeo. Watching the letterpress in action was really awesome.

    21. Emil on September 10, 2012

      I hope you make it easy to open (no tape). I don't want to destroy beautiful packaging :)

    22. Dave Lehman on September 10, 2012

      Yes, +1 on the video of the printing process. Always fascinating to see these machines in action. The Studio Neat guys did a great job of this during the making of the Glif.

    23. Conner T on September 10, 2012

      Getting these in September would be very impressive!

    24. Jason on September 10, 2012

      Appreciate the attention to every detail. Packaging is so often overlooked. I would love to see some video of the printing process.

    25. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      We can't wait to get Slim into your pocket @Michel.

    26. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      Still the plan @Chris!

    27. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      Thanks @Emir. If there is interest, we have some great video of the packaging being made that we will post on Vimeo.

    28. Supr Good Co. 2-time creator on September 10, 2012

      We can't wait either @Kumar!
