Hi!

The last few weeks were amazing! We were able to test every prototype and make the necessary adjustments to prepare the injection mould machine for the production. Besides, the packaging is completely finished and we received it! We used 100% recycled paper for it.

If everything continues as expected, we will be able to start the production on 15th June. After that, we (Judith and Carlos) will manually pack every guitar pick set by ourselves, our home is becoming kind of a warehouse :) . This will take us a while, but the delivery date remains stable and punctual.

The red card on the following picture will be the 3rd Stretch Goal. Inside of it, there will be an extra guitar pick, which you can keep, or give away to your best friend.

A short reminder for the 65 supporters who did not answer the survey. Please provide us the delivery address so we can continue processing your order. Thanks!!

Injection moulds are finished!
about 1 year ago – Mon, Apr 29, 2019 at 11:05:09 PM

 
Hello all,
 

It’s been a few weeks since our last update, and we have some great news. Yesterday, we finished the manufacturing of all 4 injection moulds. We finally received the material for the production, including the ECOBlack version, which looks... very black! =)

For the next four weeks, we plan to improve the detail quality creating more prototypes out of the machine, testing them and evaluating the visual appearance. If necessary, we will make some adjustments in the moulds and prepare them for the production. For example, Rombo Diamond will need a modification on the structure to improve the ergonomic experience. 

Besides, we will continue working on the packaging layout and format, which we hope to get in the next 3 weeks.

Thanks for being there!

Hello!

The injection mould machines are being manufactured right now. Here is a picture of the current status of the Rombo Diamond Mould:

We manufactured the first prototypes which will be sent to our guitar pick testers very soon. We are super happy with the first results! Besides, the first samples of the guitar pick holders arrived this week.

What do you think?

Next steps:

  • Complete the mould manufacturing (Estimated date 30.04.2019)
  • Finish the samples submission process (Estimated date 31.05.2019)
  • Start the production (Estimated date: 15.07.2019)
  • Deliver your picks to you (Estimated date: 15.08.2019)

Did you find this useful? We hope so!

Project news: Packaging design!
about 1 year ago – Sun, Mar 31, 2019 at 12:33:01 AM

 Hello!

We promised ourselves to keep everyone informed, including us. The updates we post are like a personal diary for us, and they help us remember what we have achieved, like a checklist.

About the survey :

758 backers out of 863 answered the survey - This is awesome! If you haven’t answered yet, don’t worry, the survey will be available until June.

 About the project : 

The material has been purchased, and the injection mould machines are being manufactured right now. In the meantime, we are working on the packaging layouts and packaging engineering:


We decided to use 300gsm silk paper, which offers a lot of printable surfaces. To fix the picks to the packaging we will use silicon dots. The first layout sketches are ready and they look like this:

What do you think? 

For the next update, we will prepare more concrete information regarding the injection mould machines and the production of the guitar picks.

Dear Backers,

The funds have been transferred and everything is ok. We have signed the orders for material procurement and next week we have a meeting to discuss the technical details of the future production process.

In the next days, you are going to receive the Kickstarter Backers’ survey. This survey will be sent by our post campaign partner Backerkit.

In this Survey :

- You will provide your information such as : Name, address, …
- In case you purchased a Pick Set, you will make your pick and colour choice

That’s not all! If you want to modify/upgrade your reward(s), you will able to do so. If you need any help, contact us at info@rombopicks.com. So we can help you with this.

PS: If you are one of the post-supporters from our pre-order store you won’t receive this survey, since you already sent us this information after you purchased.
