Spaces for Ideas: Taking Pre-Orders Now!

The Pre-Order discount is over as this product has launched! Get your sketchbook at the Spaces for Ideas Store now!

Friends, the time has finally come! After spending a number of weeks finalizing the Spaces for Ideas Sketchbook, I can now confidently be in a position to take pre-orders!
Let’s sum up the Spaces for Ideas Sketchbook in my usual favorite way, as a nice succinct marketing tagline?

The Spaces for Ideas Sketchbook: Designed for people not afraid of big ideas!

Specifically, the key points are:
Who should buy it:
1) Creative people not afraid of producing and managing big ideas!
2) Team players looking for a platform for brainstorming with other people.
3) Ardent sketchers tired of pages that seem to run out of space.
4) Mobile nomads seeking affordable and portable sketchbook solutions.
5) Organized people looking for simple solutions for design documentation.
Who is this not for:
1) Creatives who have to sketch on small tables like those found in airplanes. Still a possible solution, as you can sketch on the folded A6 pages.
2) People who are allergic to creases.
3) Designers who have phobias of large empty pages.
4) People who can’t give up their boring standard sketchbooks for a paradigm-changing product!

One of the most challenging parts of this project was having to work out the costing and pricing strategies. I wanted to keep the prices as affordable as possible. However as my initial manufacturing quantities are not high (I’m funding this 100% out of pocket!) these prices are the best I can do at this time. Hopefully in future I can substantially increase the sales volumes and bring the prices down even more!
That being said, I would like to offer you each sketchbook at USD $15. As I much prefer to move volumes, I would encourage you to purchase a set of 5 sketchbooks at USD $60 instead. 5 Sketchbooks at $12 each is a 20% discount I’m giving you as a thank you for not having me queue at the post office for too long!
However to celebrate this momentous occasion and also get this show off to a flying start, I’m going to offer an additional 15% pre-order only discount! This means each sketchbook now costs $12.75 and $51 for 5! This special pre-order discount will last until Sunday 11 April 2010, 11.59pm, when we will have the official launch and all the pre-orders shipped!

2) Spaces for Ideas: The First Prototype
3) Spaces for Ideas: The Brand
