About Artisan Case v2
For this revision, my goal is to increase the quality and experience of storing and displaying artisans. These cases are stackable, with a museum quality UV filtering heavy-duty lid to ensure protection from yellowing for your resin collection.

These will come equipped with a foam insert and translucent silicon band to safely secure your caps during transport.


6x9 (54 Slots) - Archival Quality Artisan Storage Case


- Precision Machined CNC Acrylic
- Glass Bead Blasted Finish
- PlexiGlass Hard Coated Lid with UV Protection - more details on PlexiGlass HC
- Acrylic Display Stand
- Charcoal Travel Foam
- Translucent Silicon Travel Band
- Translucent Bump-on x 4
- Timestamp Ring


Cell Dimensions (LxWxH): 0.83" x .0.83" x 0.81"
Cell Wall Height: 0.34"





- Acrylic display stand included



- Soft travel foam and silicon travel band to keep your caps safe during travel
*note that production silicon band will be translucent



- Stackable with thick 3/8" bump-ons





Lead Times, Quantity, and Price
Production lead times will be 8-10 weeks, MOQ of 150 units, with a price point of $148. I'm hoping to open this up for GB in a few weeks!


Thanks!

Thx! MOQ is 150. Once it reaches that many orders I'll close the GB.

I couldn't agree more. That flex is insane, and that case amps it up 10x fold. Hot dam!

A few quick updates:

1) Prototype should be arriving later today. If it meets my expectations and I'm happy with the quality of the machine work and bead blast, I'll plan to open the GB as soon as possible.

2) Current Interest Check is up to about 120 cases. This GB will need to meet MOQ of 150 in order to proceed.

3) After further discussion with my manufacturing plant, we have aligned on a new UV resistant Material for the lids. It is a grade of PlexiGlass with an optical hard coat. This does two things A) creates a much more scratch resistant surface and B) includes UV resistance and absorption properties. The coating will only be on one side of the lid, something to keep an eye on if you are wanting to maintain the scratch proof outer layer (UV will work either direction).

Here are the specs in case you'd like to read further on this material:

Prototype came in and I'm very happy with the quality!

Working on an acrylic display stand to be included. Once I have the stand parts in, I'll be sending the prototype and parts for a photo shoot, followed by opening the Group Buy. I'm hoping to get this thing opened in about 2 weeks.

I can't speak for Hayt but I'm pretty confident it will. He's got 0.81" (20.5mm) as the height and while I'm not 100% sure that's the inside available space, it does seem that's what he meant by cell dimensions. And if so, that's enough to fit a Bruce (19.33mm) which should be a good deal taller than a BK.  :thumb:

(just realized this might be Rome messing with us, but it's still good info for others!)
