Help jimmyCASE Move Out Of My Garage

I launched jimmyCASE in my garage in Glendale, California.  Prior to the launch of iPhone 6, I have been making all the cases myself in the garage.   With the launch of the iPhone 6, the interest-list for a new case has been huge. To handle the anticipated growth, we are moving to a factory in Downtown Los Angeles, where we have done two successful test runs.  To order the materials needed and fund the first iPhone 6 factory production run, we need the help of our fans and the Kickstarter community.   PATENT PENDING

The Elastic Is Tacked At The Bottom, So Your Cards Can't Slip Through

We Are On A Mission To Simplify Your Life

Our Unique Product

  • Elastic pocket stretches to carry what you need - Unlike wallet cases made from plastic or leather which have limited stretch, jimmyCASE is designed to stretch a lot and bounce back. jimmyCASE's elastic bands are custom-woven for us to stretch and hold up to six cards or bulky items like your car key or lipstick.   They don't stretch-out and will bounce back to hold one card tight.
  • Premium construction and materials - Unlike most iPhone cases, jimmyCASE is assembled by hand in the USA.   The wood core is fashioned with military-spec mahogany, incredibly strong and light.   The silicone bumper wraps all the way around the phone and covers the front with a thin edge to prevent on-table scratches.
  • No pesky flap - Unlike folio-style wallet cases, there is no flap to get in the way when you are talking on the phone, or block the camera when you are taking a picture.

Wouldn't it be great to simplify your life and get rid of your wallet? As a TV production executive (American Gladiators, ABC Family), I was always frustrated carrying my wallet in one pocket and iPhone in another -- on the set, going through airport security, or just sitting down with my stuffed pockets.  I designed the jimmyCASE in my garage and gave up my TV career to make jimmyCASE full time.

Your phone is with you all the time. Why not put it to work, carrying exactly what you need.  Dan Smith

Risks and challenges

I plan on shipping on a first-pledge-first-ship order, starting within one week of Kickstarter funding, and shipping all jimmyCASEs within three weeks of funding. I plan on shipping all cases in the initial run of 1,050 units before Thanksgiving.

If I need to deliver over the 1,050 units in the initial plan, these additional units would be delivered soon after the three-week initial period.

The vendors are prepped and ready to deliver the mahogany wood and silicone bumpers for the initial order immediately upon funding.

The #1 priority at jimmyCASE has been exceptional execution. Instead of starting off with a Kickstarter campaign, I launched the company earlier this year, making cases, scaling slowly and optimizing the sourcing and manufacturing processes. I have successfully produced over 750 cases by myself in my garage. All the materials vendors have been with jimmyCASE since the start and made multiple successful deliveries.

The only long-lead item is the elastic band material, which is already in-house. I ordered in bulk and took delivery of the custom elastic material earlier this year. If there was a catastrophic event (fire etc) and the existing material was lost, I would experience a multi-week delay in delivery.
