Paper creasing tool
The foldease is a versatile, paper folding and card folding tool which prevents paper cuts/friction burns and creates a neat, crease line
Concept development work focused on creating a thumb or finger mounted product that would create a neat fold in paper or card using a patented twin roller design.
CAD DEVELOPMENT & PROTOTYPING
CAD development work focused on create an ergonomically shaped rubber 'thimble' that would fit on a range of finger sizes. Integral to the design was a rigid plastic section that would act as a carriage for the twin rollers. Prototypes were created using vacuum casting techniques to provide a soft rubber section overmoulded over the rigid plastic section.
Injection moulding tooling was created for mass producing the product, and simple clamshell packaging was designed. The product was then sold direct via Amazon and online sales channels.
