MicroManufacturing

We’re getting further into the development of our company, focusing on what we’re doing – micromanufacturing – to make a cool name; something along the lines of micro14 and variations on that. The product that I’ve chosen to develop further for our company is a d.i.y. postcard; a picture frame that you can insert your own picture, moment, location into to give to a friend or loved one as a cute little snail-mail present.

I’m currently looking at mailers and postcards so that I can get a better understanding of possibilities, materials, and manufacturing. The challenge with this studio is making products that someone else within our “company” can re-create for us to sell – so it has to be totally feasible and working ASAP. These aren’t just study models.

Today and tomorrow I’ll be working on ways to finesse the first iteration of the picture-postcard and expanding upon the idea of having something to hold up the ‘frame’. I’ve also been thinking about picture corners, and wondering if that’s easier and cheaper than cutting out two pieces of card stock and gluing them together to make a ‘folder’ of sorts for the picture itself to slide into. Lots of shopping and trial & error to be had in the very near future!
