    The Laces // The Packaging // The POS : Fanfuckingtastic! Great example of seeing a gap in the market and making it your own. Hope they fly out of the shops.

    Very innovative way of packing laces, really encourages closer inspection and collecting.

    I love this! I don’t know if there is a market for cool laces but I don’t know anything about skateboard either. But I like that he identified an opportunity, a niche in what he loves to do and made not only a kickass product but a great packaging that comes with it. Love it when the packaging is relatively known to be used for other things…Test tubs :)

    Revolutionary! As simply as that. Congratulations

    Indeed, a very interesting approach! And it takes up minimum space on the shelf, while presenting the product in a very unique way.

    Hey Kevin,

    You have seen this before. Some toy manufacturers have been using two liter pop bottle blanks to package their small science kits toys for ten years. The blanks (bottles before they have been heated and expanded to that familiar shape) look just like a bigger test tube. Your use for pencils was nice also. There is a company that markets their pencils to schools for fund raisers called “Smencils.” These are also in test tube like packaging to protect the smell part of “Smencils.”
