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.

Haven't used them but won't hurt to get some info from them.
