We are looking to relaunch our Kickstarter campaign and one of our biggest mistakes was asking for too much money. My boss relied on his resource who gave us a rather expensive quote to tool one design. I believe with tooling/packaging/logistics the amount added to $150k. That seems rather expensive for a zinc casted bathroom part.
Are there any resources available who can cast zinc and create the right surface finish for a reasonable price?
We were working with LaFrance on some cast zinc parts with various finishes. They are a badging/nameplate company and probably not doing the actual casting, but might be able to point you in the right direction.
