Confession: I had ZERO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING WHEN I FIRST STARTED. Ok, that's not much of a confession as it is an obvious sentiment...give me some credit.
When I first started the process of creating our button covers and then manufacture them, I got REALLY good at the "nod and smile." My engineer would explain the next steps and I would do the following:
- Nod in agreement, while spitting out some packaged answers that injected the words he had just said -- Such as "mmhmm, definitely injection molding over CNC routing and PAD printing," "OK, yeah, and the mold will take how long?" "Yes, ABS is clearly the better option"
- Get into my car and write down all of the bizarre words I just pretended to know.
The process of developing a new product is a long and confusing one. This video goes over how our Button Covers went from an idea to an actual custom product made in Orlando!
