As for most Inventors, great ideas for new inventions sprout up like weeds.
The ideas are the easy part. It's the "now what" that sinks our Genius Invention ship.
Such is the case with me right now...in a magazine, I saw a really cute idea and with a simple suggestion from my daughter, I have come up with an awesome invention! Think Silly Bandz, Pillow Pets or those crazy, little erasers...this idea for an invention is totally gimmicky and would have a short but profitable shelf life and it's not something you could trademark.
The two products that would be sold in the package are already manufactured so all I would have to do is purchase them wholesale.
What I WOULD need is a little bit of money, a design for the packaging and a company that would package them. Oh yes, and a name for the product - but that's the easy (and fun!) part.
Then...the time to take my product to market but I am getting ahead of myself.
My product idea is "all dressed up and nowhere to go." Where do I find a manufacture to package this brilliant idea?
Because I can not trademark this idea, I can not send it to a company like Edison Nation...I would have to do this completely on my own...no reality show, no big company taking over and giving me 2%...just nose to the grindstone, fingers crossed and faith...
If you, my loyal Product X'ers, know of a company that could package my new "Product X", please let me know.
All I need is a piece of cardboard about the size of a washcloth with two clear plastic containers attached to the cardboard and a tiny hole in the top that would allow for a hanging display.
I can't believe I am even considering doing this again...gotta love Inventors!
