We got a sample product in house that got a lot of positive reation: We could have sold the sample a dozen times over, when it was worn it got a lot of notice. It wasn’t an item we expected: It was a scarf made out as a colorful periodic table:
It wore well, and looked quite nice. The reaction caught us off guard to be honest.
The scarf is made of (polyester-based) Satin and was soft, comfortable, colorful, and especially nerdy!
Thing is: We couldn’t just buy few of these like we do other items. We had to buy a *lot* of them for the order. How could we do this? It was alot of capital to invest and while we were sure we could sell a few of them, could we sell hundreds?
Rather than make a risky investment, we decided to turn to Kickstarter:
So you can help support bringing this product to our offerings. You can get one of the first ones as a reward (or a bunch if you like!). If You don’t care for scarves or just don’t wear them you can still support us and get a reward! The $12 reward will get you a dog tag with your fasvorite element on it (you get to choose!)
So support our little foray into fashion and back us on Kickstarter!

These are 17-1/2″ x 12″ heavily laminated placemats with detailed color fronts that give information on a wide variety of science & math subjects, the backs of the placemats are in black-and-white and can either be colored with dry erase markers or have a short quiz to see what kids using the placemats have learned!The placemats are economical at just $3.99 so you can buy a bunch and rotate them over a couple of weeks!
