My husband, John invented Tape-Seal. It is a uniquely formulated, brushable clear acrylic gel you apply to the edge of painters masking tape. Tape-Seal fills the small voids at the tapes edge. Tape-Seal creates a barrier that prevents paint from bleeding under the tape leaving a clean, sharp paint line. www.PerfectPaintLines.com
I`m fortunate to have a creative husband I think we checked out Meridian as one of the options and for sure Uline. Only problem for us was our dimensions were so unique that trying to fit a 12 pack of our product didn`t work out. Otherwise, agreed that going premade is the best route whenever possible!
HI Jennifer, how have your boxes come along? If you click on my profile, I`ve added a picture of the box that John designed / prototyped for the die cutter. We then print up the graphics on our laser printer and there you have it!
Hope you had a great 4th of July!
Hi Mark, I`m glad to see that this thread has been `brought back to life` from such a long time ago! It has been useful to read thru.
Tomorrow my goal is to contact all of the local TV stations to `pitch` our product, Tape-Seal. Do you suggest using the pitch of `local couple invents X` or is it best to pitch the product when dealing with local media? The product would appeal to any person who has ever painted a textured surface and used painter`s masking tape but I don`t know which would be a better pitch in this case.
Finally, when I sent out our first press release I received some great responses from national mags. Nothing has transpired since then (4/25/08) with the national DIY mags that initially contacted me. I did one follow up a few weeks later but am unsure at what point a person is considered annoying. My nature is not to be pushy but also realize there is a benefit in being persistent until there is a flat out NO. Should I do one more follow up and ask the question of `what is the story missing`?
Thank you in advance,
Any other suggestions pertaining to our new product would be great. Thanks so much for the insight!
