A big thanks to everyone who came out to see the Outside Edge booth at the 2015 Chicago Pinball Expo! We had a great time meeting and talking to all of you. And, if you found one of our lampshades, coaster sets, or neon clocks that you just had to buy, we are so grateful for your help in making our launch such a big success and a ton of fun.
We sold most of our white speckle lampshades, and completely sold out of the black. If you haven’t seen them in person, check out the end of Croooow’s awesome Expo review!
We are making more shades right now to sell from our web site and at the Texas Festival in March. We are also hoping you can help us with something else...
We are looking at placing a significant order of actual lamps (not just the shades) to offer for purchase. There are two styles we are considering. One is the Silver Ball (shaped like a giant pinball!), and the other is the Black Tower (see attached pictures). The final prices will be dependent on the quantities we order, but we think we will be able to get the costs down low enough that we can sell them for around $200 each. That’s $200 for an awesome silver ball or black tower lamp base, PLUS your choice of white speckle or solid black shade, PLUS your choice of any four swappable inserts (and we have over 30 titles coming soon to add to our launch set of 24 titles).
Here’s the big question: Would you or someone you know be seriously interested in buying one of these exceptional lamps for $200 by next Spring? If we get enough positive responses we will go forward. If not, we might just keep our ridiculously cool prototypes for our own gameroom, and they will be the only ones that exist.
Please let us know, and thank you for your help!
