Plywerk HQ is proud to announce that our crowdfunding campaign to bring Vinny into the world for real is on! In case you missed it, Vinny is the latest addition to our Plywerk family. He’ll be joining our world-renown collection of handmade, hardwood photo and art display products, and he’s perhaps the most unique one of the bunch yet! He’s all about showing his love for music by offering you three visually stunning ways to display your vinyl record collection: as a stand, a wall frame, or a crate. So how do we prepare for a crowdfunding campaign? Well, if you visited the above link for the campaign page (here it is again because I'm nice like that) you may have noticed a bottle of locally-made juniper gin. Drinking that gin was one of the more important steps to ensuring a successful crowdfunding campaign. In fact, it was pretty much a prerequisite to the next step, which was interviewing each other about our musical preferences. Some people just need a couple of drinks before going on camera. The whole reason we decided to design and build Vinny is because we, ourselves (like most human beings), enjoy listening to music. Putting a personal touch to the project through video interviews with Plywerkers will undoubtedly boost the popularity of Vinny’s crowdfunding campaign. We think. Deciding which albums to feature in the campaign photos was also no easy task, especially when it came down to deciding between Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and Katy Perry’s Prism (just kidding—that was never actually a choice we had to make. Pink Floyd was in from the beginning. I mean, come on, how can you promote a vinyl record display product and not use that album to do it?) Of course, in the end, it’s the albums you will be displaying that matter most—so head on over to Vinny’s Crowdsupply page and sign up for updates! We’ll let you know the campaign is live, and what you can do to get a Vinny or two of your own. If you're as excited as we are about Vinny, come and join our huge Vinny
Party! It's on the 5th of March and it's at Made Here PDX! Details here.
