Now that the prototypes are compete we are ready to go to the next stage
which is the tooling molds and after that manufacturing.
The Tooling molds take about 50-60 days to machine, test and debug and we need to cover those expenses up front. During the time that these are being made we will finalize packaging, colorways and start implementing some of the marketing/promotional plans as we get ready to place factory orders for production, For this we will need 10 Eth and will keep regular updates to keep everyone looped in in real time.
After the molds are done we will place orders with the factory for 5500 pcs in Red, Black, Pink gold plated chrome and blue . The gold will only be available to Noun holders (5 pcs per noun will be shipped to each holder through a token gated portal on our site.
We will have these available to ship to events as needed as well as have a some available for museum shops and DTC retail . A lot of this will be more clear once we start marketing and soliciting orders
Here is the full document with breakdowns and marketing information etc.
Thanks for the update! Is the gold always exclusively for Noun holders, or is it just the first order (the 500 batch) before exclusivity is relieved?
the plated gold is an idea for a way to reward holders, include in a “welcome to nouns” onboarding package for new members and as gifts to people that are building and contributing to the project/community at large. At this stage it is a proposal so anyone has any other ideas I am always willing to change my mind
Here is the final design schematic for the glasses with all of the new changes approved for tooling. Thanks for your support. We should have images of the molds and test shots in about 45 days.
These are looking excellent @BigshotKlim. Well done ser and am very excited here.
Thanks so much, I am super pleased with how well this has been going. It is very liberating to have the only req for a project be “make the most awesome thing” and not make this for 2 bucks, or follow these guidelines. It is not easy but has been incredibly fun so far. My new proposal is up as well and your NOUN head is one of the proposed characters =)
Tooling has been scheduled to begin as soon as we make another round of revised prototypes and test the fit of the nose bridge and longer ear stalks. … Thanks for looking
Molds in progress. looking good.
