This Campaign

ZucatiCorp is launching this campaign to help us fund the expansion of our current workshop and to help us grow and develop new products.  We're well on our way to becoming the premier provider for the finest dice, game accessories and tools but what we're still behind on is funds for an overall move into a larger shop.  Each time we run a Kickstarter campaign the funds are divided more or less in the following way:

1. Backer reward supplies, tooling and manufacturing costs: 50 - 60%

2. Shop maintenance and if possible expansion: 10 - 20%

3. Long-term business debt and business related bills: 5 - 10%

4. Research and development of new products:  5 - 10%

Our minimum funding level is set low so that we're able to ensure every campaign is funded at a minimum level and so we're able to continue our work. 

The more funding you provide the more we can do and the faster we can grow. It's all up to you how much we're able to accomplish together.

Thank you so much.

The Half and Quarter CORE

Each core provides utility and style to allow you to bring as little or as much of your key gear with you to game night or abroad. 

Add-ons

1. Cherry FLUME (no base) $45

2. Dice Base™: 2 Set (Base plus 1 plus 3/4) $100 

3. Custom Leather Adventure Bag for CORE components $100

Magnets

Both the Quarter and Half CORE cases are held together with N52 industrial magnets for a 100% positive closure. They may look little but with 5lbs for the Quarter and 9lbs for the Half these magnets are seriously strong and keep these cases closed under all conditions. While these prevent unwanted opening, a quick movement in the right direction (must be done with your hands) will release the gripping power so you can easily access your treasures. All the safety and security you want, and the easy access you need.  These magnets are a lifetime product and do not lose gaussian strength over time. 

The Quarter Core provides mini storage as well as holds up to two full sets of polyhedral dice. You can configure it to be a case, a vault or a combination where one side provides a micro-rolling surface for your dice stored in the other. Foam, Leather, Cork and Felt linings can be chosen post-campaign.  

The Half Core comes pre-configured in six of the most popular configurations. From a purely open format to a highly specialized dice and miniature storage formats you can be assured that your finest dice and miniatures will be well cared for in these cases. There are also some hybrid options where dice and miniatures can live together in harmony.

Risks and challenges

I've run several successful Kickstarter Campaigns including multiple campaigns simultaneously, and have a 100% successful track-record of delivering rewards to my backers on-time or early.

This project is limited and staggered so that it will not interfere with any of my current obligations.

This is a 100% American sourced project using american goods, and labor.

With any project there can be unforeseen delays in materials, shipping or other logistical factors. I've dealt with these issues in my other campaigns so well, that my backers were un-aware they existed, until I informed them the issue was resolved.

My goal is 100% on-time fulfillment with 100% backer satisfaction.
Ask, anyone who's backed one of my projects, you'll find that for me, this isn't just talk, its how I do business.
