Safe and Sound: Magnetic Boxes 2.0 Kickstarter
Safe and Sound sind mit der zweiten Version ihrer Magnetic Boxes auf Kickstarter unterwegs.
Magnetic Boxes 2.0
Magnetic Boxes for storing and transporting your collections of magnetically-based miniatures.
Safe&Sound Magnetic Boxes is an innovative, new approach to storing and carrying miniatures for all wargames systems. The boxes allow the safe storage and transportation of your miniatures in comfortable & safe conditions in a small space, always ready for a game.
If you play tabletop games, you most probably know about the foam-tray based storage system. With 10 years of experience in producing boxes and foam trays, we know something about this! One of our solutions combines foams with high-quality cardboard boxes.
Another popular way of storing and transporting miniatures is by using magnets attached to bases of miniatures. These magnetically-based miniatures are then carried in metal cases. This solution allows for the minimization of storage space needed for minis. At present, the metal cases come in the form of metal cookie boxes not always of a suitable size, very expensive dedicated cases, or heavy wooden boxes or chests.
With this Kickstarter project, we ask for your support in the creation of lighter, more convenient, and durable new versions of Magnetic Boxes for magnetically-based miniatures.
Safe&Sound already sells Magnetic Boxes 1.0 which are commercially successful.
In our Magnetic boxes 2.0, we use light-weight, high-quality cardboard boxes (more on that below) and solid metal plates 0,5 mm thick with an excellent ability to attract magnets.
The material in our boxes is a 3-layered cardboard with an additional carton layer taped on both sides. These 5-layer cardboard boxes are very resilient and durable, yet also very light.
Moreover, both sides of the boxes are covered by plastic foil, providing additional protection against tearing, helps keep the boxes clean, and gives some water resistance – liquid spillages can be quickly, easily, and safely wiped off before it soaks into the cardboard. (It takes prolonged exposure to liquids to damage the cardboard in the box)
With this Kickstarter project, we invite you to participate in the creation of improved versions of our Magnetic boxes, with new dimensions, which better fits the continually changing miniature market, as well as an upgraded design with a climatic set of graphics.
Safe&Sound Magnetic Boxes and Transport Bag in detail:
We have a decade of experience under our belts in “making boxes“. To create a good box, certain knowledge and experience are required, such as „cardboard physics“, proven suppliers, appropriate technology, and large production outlays, which generates high initial costs.
With your help, you will allow us to start this Kickstarter project immediately. In return we offer you benefits not available in our regular offers.
Apart from the main rewards, we want to propose some additional add-ons to help you magnetize your collection of minis. These include magnetic foil stickers, the most popular sizes of neodymium magnets, as well as additional metal plates which you can attach to the other sides of the boxes increasing their carrying capacity. You will also find additional boxes and bags you can add to your pledge. You can choose alternative color versions of the boxes and bags as the stretch goals of the campaign are reached. All these add-ons you will also be able to add after the campaign in our pledge manager
The additional bag can hold 4 x Vanguard Boxes, or 2 x Vanguard boxes and 1 x Strike Force box, or 2 x Strike Force boxes. This way you can carry any configuration of miniatures.
Additional Metal Plates
These metal plates you can attach to the inner backside and inside lid (walls) of the boxes increasing their carrying capacity. The metal plates are self-adhesive and their application is very easy. Simply take the protective paper off the underside of the plate and stick it to the wall of the box.
All plates will be available in all color versions as stretch goals open during the campaign.
With neodymium magnets, you easily magnetize your miniatures collections.
Thanks to magnetic foil (MF) stickers you will fast and easily magnetize your miniatures bases without the necessity of drilling the bases and gluing magnets.
MF Stickers are self-adhesive and are dedicated to caste bases with flat bottoms. Simply take the protective paper off the underside of the magnetic foil and stick it to the bottom of the bases. MF Stickers are 1 mm thick.
Thanks to these you will magnetize your miniature’s hollow bases from Age of Sigmar, WH40K, and other systems, easily and fast without the necessity of gluing the magnets. The sticker consists of a magnetic foil with a thickness of 1 mm and a carrier in a form of hard foam 2,2mm thick. The sticker fits securely in the base and protrudes under the edge of the base by 0,2mm, which allows for the full magnetic force of the magnetic foil.
Die Kampagne ist noch nicht finanziert und läuft noch 14 Tage.
