Step 1: tell us what you want. We prefer to have an actual sample of the product, your existing protective packaging, and the box around it. Plus a drawing with the dimensions and the weekly volumes. If you have no packaging yet, we’ll design something stunning together!
Step 2: we will make a render, which can be a copy of your current packaging. But where possible we try to incorporate improvements. Last but not least we always try to design the packaging for a ‘second life’. That means it can become a bowl, a coaster, a vase, a puzzle etc. Making one render usually costs between €100 and €200. In this stage we can give you a rough estimate of the cost of your new packaging.
Step 3: we will make the mould, usually with a 3D printer but sometimes even handmade or vacuum formed.
Step 4: Then we fill the mould and grow your first prototype. Making a prototype will cost between €400 and €800. At this stage we can quote you an exact price.
Step 5: you decide on giving a go or a no-go.
A mycelium product grows in 5 days and dries in 2 days. That means that with one mould, we make 1 product per week, 52 per year. With 20 moulds … Well, you get it.
