Why do I love making DIY kits?

It has been my goal, my mission and my skill to take what is seemingly hard to understand and make it easy - and also really fun!

I spent 6 years teaching technology to adults, and the most common sentiment was "well, I don't know how this thing works." To them, electronics seemed like an alien language that was impossible to learn. (And this was coming from very intelligent people - my students were successful lawyers, artists and entrepreneurs.) 

So why were they so hard on themselves?

Most electronics hide away what's happening behind a plastic shell, and that makes people feel unwelcome to explore and learn what's going on. People fear its complexity because they don't have a place to begin to understand it.

For this kit, I wanted to show just the very very basics of an electronic circuit - a simple battery and LED. I hope that this project will not only be a fun and easy activity for parties, but also may spark the curiosity and confidence needed to explore what can be built with a basic knowledge of electronics. 

Why do I need so much money?

The initial costs of making paper cut-outs are high because they require me to purchase several steel rule dies. There are also expensive set-up fees to have the dies put on a professional press. 

But there's good news! Once the die is on the press, it can make thousands of cuts in a very short amount of time!

Stretch Goal

If this campaign reaches $10,000 every kit will be stamped with shimmery foil accents to add a classy touch to the light-up project!

Foil stamping has similar costs to die cutting, so I will need more money to produce the shapes with foil - I hope we can make it happen, I love the shimmery foil so much!

Risks and challenges

I'M PREPARED TO MAKE THIS PROJECT GREAT!

Electric Embellishments is my baby - I've worked very hard to foresee the costs, risks and challenges the project will face. I will be relying on manufacturers and suppliers that have been working with me to determine the costs and timelines for this project. I believe they will be able to provide their products and services within the timeline of this campaign. If anything unforeseen happens, I promise to keep excellent communication, and clearly define any changes. :)

The road to a product can be bumpy or smooth - but I hope you'll join me and enjoy the ride! I love sharing my process with backers, so I hope you'll find backing this campaign interesting and fun!

NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BACKERS:

Some countries may charge you a customs fee to receive your shipment. Please contact me if you need help determining if a customs fee applies and how much it will be. Your items will ship from Jersey City, New Jersey, USA.

I'd like to be honest and say that international shipments are tricky and some get stuck in the mail or come back to me - it's just unfortunately the way it is. If an item is returned to me, I will refund the cost of the kit minus the cost of shipping (because I have already spent that money). Thanks for your understanding!
