We have used the best leather and hardware. Reviews will pop up soon and we are not nervous about them because we know the product is solid.

We have been using prototypes ourselves for the past 14 months and it's rock solid and ages beautifully.

Are you on our newsletter ? There will be a very compelling offer for early birds and people who buy two briefs.

We are doing 100 hour weeks until launch 10 days from now. Video will be hard to squeeze in before launch but will try getting something done for future reference. Please PM us with examples if you have any, would be great for our eCommerce shop in 6 months from now

You are right. We have one shot in our video that displays the messenger bags flap. It's a beautiful video clip and really showcases the leather. We are planning on giving all newslettee subscribees a sneak preview of the video 3 days before launch !
Stay tuned !

You should really consider posting photos of any bags or portfolios you have been using a that show some age. I can't imagine I'm the only one who would be interested in seeing this.

A great promo to run after launch would be to have owners send in photos of their purchases in daily use and (more so) after the leather has started to show age. Post them to social media, etc. Maybe, once a week/month select the best one and give them a discount on a future purchase. Would encourage repeat customers. #freemarketingadvice

Yeah, we have planned that for the future. Right now we are putting all our resources towards launching on time smile.gif

When we launch our ecommerce store: we will have a specific hashtag for each product, the Instagram feed will then be displayed on our product pages.

I got several PMs about it in addition to the mentions above, so the Linjer-folk let me test drive the black briefcase this weekend. You know how I feel about black bags, so I was really taking one for the team here (haha j/k).

For the sake of objectivity/separation, I started my own thread here:

Hi @Linjer, first off, congratulations with the start-up. Your products look beautiful and they are priced very attractively. I'm very interested in the cognac briefcase.

 

If your Kickstart campaign is successful (and I certainly hope that it will be), do you have an estimate of when the first batch of products will be finished for shipping?

 

Thank you and I wish you the best of luck with your project!

I also would like to know the same thing as well. I am strongly considering being an early campaign backer but I wanted to at least know when we could expect delivery, Thanks!

OK, I am in for the cognac briefcase when the Kickstarter starts. My email is the ...@sentfrom.com one.

 

Some suggestions for the portfolio:

  • add a few more pen loops, most people will carry color pens to highlight stuff when taking notes
  • some kind of cutout for storing a USB flash drive would be nice
  • make sure the portfolio can carry an A4/LTR sized notebook, not just a notepad

Well, I've read his thread and Rach certainly agrees with you. I am in for whenever you are able to make a navy briefcase. Regrettably, I already have enough cognac and black bags
