Shipping Worldwide - Case of CableKeeps

Posted on August 02, 2012 by Jim Young | 0 Comments

Here's half of our first retail production packed up and ready to go to Los Angeles.  Feels so good to have everything packaged, cased, and paletized.  Our heads are a swirl of ASN numbers, HTS codes, freight classing, part numbers, order sheets, tracking numbers, and production coordination details.  Special thanks to Reality Plastics (again) for supporting every detail and allowing us to poach units and packaging as needed to keep online sales and review samples going out the door.  Now we can sit back and watch sales take over, kinda.  Somebody beer me.

Production done!! Shipping Commenced

Our first orders have all shipped out and we're more than thrilled to be hearing such great praise like:

"Brought Goldie with me on a trip from CT to DC. Traveled great, plug management is AWESOME. Thanks so much." - resonate

"Received my Goldie and Nibbles today. They look and work great. Well worth the wait, thanks much!" - Paul Selby

"Got my Keeps Today, love them, . . . " - Jean-Claude Landau

"Mine arrived today in CA, got two Goldies and two Nibbles. Fit is great, both work great. Thanks Kickstarter and thanks Jim for hanging in there! " - Sami Laine


We had so many boxes we had to pile them up in sacks to take to the post office!  Shipping 1200+ orders from Kickstarter and online was a lot of work, but what a blast.  A labor of love.

Halfway through Production.

Posted on April 15, 2012 by Jim Young | 0 Comments

Our injection molding tool had to be moved to another supplier who in just 2 days has calibrated our parts and starting molding production units.  As of this writing we're halfway through production with a completion set for Tuesday.  Once the parts arrive we'll be boxing and shipping.  You will get a confirmation email when your order goes out along with a tracking number.  Take a look at the pics and movies.

Site Update

Posted on November 27, 2011 by James Young | 1 Comment

We're in the process of updating our site so that NiceByDesign.com can function better as a hub for all our activity and not just function as a shopping page.  Our previous theme was somewhat limited, but then you can't really complain when it was free!  The new site won't see many big changes until after our Kickstarter units ship out in December, then we'll be turning on expanded shipping options, more news updates, and new Kickstarter campaigns.  Hang in there while we fine tune our new home.

Things are hopping.

Tooling is moving along nicely.  We'll start updating our progress regularly now that more things are coming in.  We're in the thick of making final packaging decisions and getting our vendors in line for Kickstarter fulfillment so everything gets pulled off perfectly for December shipping.  Lots of moving pieces, but I've been down this road before with PadPivot.  Definitely easier this time working with local vendors.  Hard work, but a labor of love!
