Unboxing Experience

Now that most everyone has received their Evoras, heres an inside look at what made the yoyo so special. Something that is always overlooked is packaging. Many people said they didn't care about fancy packaging but it was something I did for myself. So many companies out there have lackluster packaging, but for a premium product you need to go the extra mile. So I did.
 
Here is the dreaded packing sleeve that caused so much delay. The print finally decided to work, and in my opinion really sets it apart. The line work on the back side was done with combined efforts of myself and my sister. I make sure it was subtle enough for it to still look minimal.
The cards were printed on this ridiculously hard to find paper. Its not quite 12 point thick, but definitely a card feel to it. It has this really subtle texture that I love about it, and I was actually worried it wouldn't print properly. Worked out amazing in the end. 
I think the number one comment I got on the packaging was that it wasn't packaged like a toy, but rather a high end jewelry or electronic device. After all, we know its more than just a yoyo. I hope this gives enough insight for the ones who didn't get a chance to snag one up on the release date. I am already working on a brand new design and if it all works out - will be ready for November/December.

Hi, guess I am lat to the party. I really really want one, any one. If for any reason you find one for sale or have a line on one for sale, please let me know. I want one bad. Please. Great site by the way. And, what looks like an awesome throw. I’m not great, but have a fine appreciation for things well made and designed. I do hand engraving, like you find on fine knives and guns and accessories. If you ever need something, we could work out a barter! I’ll be keeping up with you for any future releases… Thanks, Brett

When I started yoyoing as a kid there wasn't much media. Youtube wasn't really a thing so you only had a few options to learn tricks from. Kens World On a String was a classic go to, with jpegs of how to do tricks, and if you wanted to watch videos it would be a painful download of Quicktime or flash videos. I remember vividly watching a video of a man doing the most creative tricks in an elevator shaft - you would know him as Doctor Popular. I must have learned a dozen of his tricks (and likely you unknowingly have too).

Last few months have been a bit interesting. Things here in Ontario are finally starting to open up again, which feels like a light at the end of the tunnel. I finally got to see my yoyo friends here for the first time since March in 2020 - almost a year and a half. Of course I brought many titanium yoyo prototypes, including the new Acadia.

For 2021 I started to focus on doing more releases in tighter clusters. The demand and growth has been nice but I realized that more and more people are in the market for higher end products. I have even noticed that more companies are producing yoyos in titanium. I always said I would move on to other projects once other companies started producing the products i felt was missing in the market. The previous triple zero release was a massive success, and it was the largest run I have ever done. I feel like everyone who wanted one got one, even if it was only just.
