Today I’ve finally completed something I’ve had in motion for a long time- starting a business! It’s called Glowing Key, LLC.
For the past 1.5 years, I’ve been developing a few retail-worthy products. Along the way my dad got involved and started developing a few projects of his own.
The big one for me is the Leo Frame. I spent hundreds of dollars on paper samples alone searching for the ideal blend for precut papercraft that could be manufactured for a reasonable enough price so as to be a plausible souvenir for one-off events or small businesses. The typical price for a small batch diorama on Etsy is $50-$70 and I’m happy to have developed something similar that will be much more affordable yet still provide an extremely cool keepsake.
My dad has been focusing on challenge coins, which we call Prove It Coins. We attend enough events and challenges (namely escape rooms) that we wish had simple souvenirs and this was his answer to that problem.
I also have a few other projects in the works that I’d like to market under my new business credentials. I’ve been developing a really unique board game that I’d love to launch soon, and I’m stealthily hoping it wins some design awards.
I wont be quitting my day job any time soon, but I love finally having a formal outlet to get some of these creations out into the world!
