With the efforts that went into our failed Kickstarter behind us, we are moving on. We want to be sure now all our current customers that have now since gone on to pre-order the phone floaty on our website will get them before Christmas. I am excited to announce that this is looking very positive, with our packaging and products now all now being approved in the production sample phase.
Our packaging was finalised yesterday and we have also now gotten each of our different models off the production line and are ready for their first run on the factory floor.
The packaging shown was the first sample of the packaging, after testing we are going to be able to shave 15mm off the thickness so please judge it on the design rather than the size for now. Let us know if you like it in the comments below.
Customer Feedback Update
Personally I think the product is looking great and the more I have been using the prototypes over the last couple months and showing other people that spend a lot of time on the water, I continue to be overwhelmed by the positive feed back saying no it is not too bulky and yes they would buy one to just have in the boat at all times. I have had it on my phone whilst traveling and walking around all day and I agree it is not perfect for everyday use, but it isn't too far off a normal case.
We are looking for a partner to work with us to run a ongoing instagram competition where the Phone Floaty community can tag us and our partner whilst doing their fun water activities. We would like the partner to supply the competition with a fishing tackle package so entrants can go into the draw to win some fishing gear. If you know of a contact at a brand like PENN, Abu Garcia, Shimano or other similar we would love to speak to them.
The website is still open for Pre-Sales and if you are reading this you are one of the lucky ones as you have the chance to score a Phone Floaty at 50% during the Pre-Order Phase.

We have had orders coming in from Canada, the US, Australia and Korea at this stage so I would love to thank you all for getting behind the start of the Phone Floaty.
Once again thanks for the support and keep on doing your floaty things!
