About this project
See what people are saying about Whooz?
"Dress your charger as one of these 4 characters, and set it right once and for all!" Drool'd
"Not only is Whooz? such a simple, can’t-believe-we-didn’t-think-of-it-first kind of idea, but the stickers are really cute." PadGadget
"vinyl wrappers that make differentiating your cable a cinch while looking cleaner than your name Sharpied to the side" Gear Hungry
"These stickers are just simply fun!" Holycool
WHOOZ IS IT?
Do you have 2 iDevices and 6 cords? 4 iDevices and no cords? How many times have you left a cord somewhere because you thought it wasn't yours or taken a cord because you thought it was. In the beginning white cords were cool but now there are a million bazillion of them and we got issues.
At $10/pack Whooz is a simple, fun, and affordable solution to this problem. Each pack comes with four sheets of removable vinyl labels with each sheet sporting a different look. One sheet includes labels to cover one adapter, the ends of one usb cable and one set of earphones. You can combine the labels in fun ways to create your own look or keep it simple.
These also work on the new iPhone 5 / iPad lightning connector and earphones! There are extra labels to cover the new shapes and sizes.
Currently Whooz covers two formats. There's a pack that fits iPhones and iPods and another pack that fits iPads.
Whooz will be printed on a durable removable vinyl so it can handle a little action and won't gunk up your cords. The labels are finished with a laminate and UV resistant coating to protect it from the elements. I have a great local printer ready to start as soon as funding is met.
Your donations will cover die costs and minimums for an initial print run. With your help I can hopefully get this up and running and start working on new fun designs to add to the selection.
Thanks so much for all your help!
Risks and challenges
I specifically chose to pursue this type of project on kickstarter because being a one woman show I didn't want to be overwhelmed by too many unknowns. The manufacturing is simple, straightforward and just down the road so I can easily oversee all steps in the process. The one challenge I do foresee is the possibility that I could have 1000+ packages to ship in a fairly short time. Hopefully, that will be the case and I will be throwing a Whooz party and inviting all my peeps and posse to get down on order fulfillment. Of course there's always Craigslist too.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
At this moment Whooz? only works on Type A "american" style cords. If your cords don't look like the ones in the picture than they won't work.
Yes! Extra labels have been added to both packs to use on the new lightning connector.
The same labels fit all iPhone earphones. For the new iPhone earphones you will need to place the labels higher up on the stem so they don't cover up the noise cancellation holes.
Unfortunately I can only guarantee that US orders will be received by 12/25. I will be shipping international orders first to give them as much time as possible to find their destinations.
