So, you’re interested in getting standy with a Baltic birch StandStand? Great choice! We want you to be as knowledgable about your StandStand as we are, so here we’ll dig into our choice of material and tell you about just how awesome Baltic birch is.
First off, we chose Baltic birch for its unique strength, flexibility, and sustainability. It’s used in everything from longboards to airplanes, and it grows like wildfire.
Just a few months after our Kickstarter campaign ended, we decided to join the big dogs at CES 2015, the largest technology industry trade show out there. As a startup, it can be a bit intimidating to set up shop next to the Samsungs and Qualcomms of the world, but we felt that a place like CES — with its tech-focused and design-loving attendees — would be the perfect spot to get the word out about StandStand, the portable standing desk that every techie should have to work smarter and healthier!
Like many other startups exhibiting at their first trade show, we felt a bit overwhelmed with the booth options at first. Should we go with the relaxed, lounge style? Or the super shiny tech feel? Or try to get as much sustainable wood in our booth as possible? How many StandStands should we have out for passersby to try out? Chairs? No chairs? Couch? Carpet? Flyers? Banners? Built-out displays? AHHHH!
As you may know, we got started on Kickstarter, and we just wrapped up shipments for everyone this past December!
Emails and photos from happy backers have made this holiday an especially nice one for us. After all the hard work and uncertainty involved in a project like this, the satisfaction that we’ve been hearing has been such an encouraging validation of the project. Thank you!
