This project will only be funded if at least $7,000 is pledged by Wednesday Aug 22, 6:15pm EDT.

We were recently referred to this site as a great way to share Kickstarter projects. We have had a great time getting to know the Kickstarter community and have been so pleased with the backing support we have received on our first project.

As of today, we are 76% funded and have just 15 days left to go. We'd love if you would take the time to visit our project, consider it, and hopefully so inclined to pledge and/or share it with others!

The Pen Case is made from 100% leather and keeps your favorite writing tools safely in one place. We've found that this has been greatly backed by not only pen lovers, but business owners, artists, bloggers, and other everyday folks. We also share rewards options on some of our other best selling items including briefcases, Taxi Wallets, and ePouches.

Feedback is of course always appreciated - feel free to message us at anytime!

Alicia, great idea. It's simply, yet elegant.

What other products, if any have you brought to market before? What made you turn to Kickstarter?

There is likely quite a large market for this product out there!

Hi SocialCam. The product that started it all is the Taxi Wallet - a travel wallet that has quickly become a preferred everyday wallet for men and women. Since then, I have brought a number of handbags, business bags and accessories. The Pen Case brings us back to where we started -creating an item that meets the needs of many (just as the Taxi Wallet has done). We brought it to Kickstarter for a few reasons. First, we wanted to gauge the market for such a niche product - and it turns out the market is broader than we thought! Second, because all of our products are designed with our friends and family in mind, we wanted to bring it to the community. Kickstarter was a great way to reach out, get feedback and get inspired. We're having a lot of fun watching our dashboard each day and now that we are in the last stretch of our campaign (just 15 days to go!) we are hoping to get a strong final push.

As of this morning we officially met our funding goal. As other project creators know, people often change their mind and the numbers can go up and down. We appreciate extra support to get us above and beyond our goal!
