Everything is on hold at the moment. Box work will be on hold for some time do to the fact that my partner is starting college. Yoyos will be made as soon as I buy a new laptop that can handle the program my CAD program. I’m gonna use the summer to raise cash for it.
Lately I’ve been buying and receiving some CLYWs that did not come with a box and or was sold/traded to me with out one. After a few months of not getting my hands on a the individual boxes needed I’ve decided to make them myself. I’ve acquired the same 3x3x2 kraft boxes that CLYW use for packing and going to be and will be partnering up with one of my friends to make custom boxes for those who are like me that need one but can’t find them.
At the moment I have 30 blanks. We still need to complete some samples that are still need to be finished but at the moment we are basically stack and are waiting for orders to come in. These orders will be our samples that will show our skill. Please drop off some orders soon.
Please just feel free to contact me and I’ll be able to talk 1 on 1 with you in order to start your order. Please have ideas, logos, medium type(pencil, water paint, micron pen, markers, etc), and etc ready before hand.
The price for each box will depend on a few factors like which mediums are used, the quality of the art, the number of panels used, how fast you want it made, and overall time it takes to make 1 box. Please take into consideration of shipping, yes it’s not going to be much but it’s still shipping. A sample or 2 will be posted up soon by the end of this weekend or throughout next week.
Please fill free to ether pm me, or leave ideas and comments below.
Request will be taken soon.

5/10/14 We will be officially starting then. All prices are not set but contact me and well start planning.
Over the summer I will be making small runs of throws that will be made with the influence of the yoyo community. Drafts will be uploaded and will be open for discussion in ordere to make a throw that will suit the needs of the yoyo community. Throws will be made of 6061, 7075, 7068, steel, and delrin. Samples will be made and pass around to local clubs, reviewers, players, designers, and those who helped throw in their 2 cents. Anodizing, tumbling, and blasting will be done in shop or sourced out to forum modders. Box work will be done by Dead_Ink.
The first throw will be a pocket throw that will change the way pocket throws are looked at. This throw will be one that will truly be a throw that one can throw in one’s pocket, carry around, play anywhere without worry of major injury to the yoyo itself. The finish product will be made of steel and or will have a detachable delrin/plastic rim ring/cap.
The complete product will have a
Diameter: of 46-48mm
Width: of 36.25-37mm
Weight: 60-66g depending on metrical and shape used.
Bearing: size-D or C depending on final shape and feedback from samples.
Response: Pads or flowable.
Shape: yet to be anounced but will most likely be a organic shape that will not have sharp edges ease of taking in and out of pockets or bags.
Throw characteristics: To me the perfect pocket throw is something that is that i need when ever im away from home and need to take a breather with a good combo evert 30min. My idea of a perfect throw would be heavy, fast, and super forgiving but i know this is just my idea of a perfect throw and not all will agree. I will allow the community to decide this part so that every one who picks ups one of these mini tanks will be pleased with it. Most likely it will be a throw that will have some float on it so that it does not feel like a rock on the end of the string but have the right amount of girth to give it the perfect amount of momentum without it feeling as if it has drag.
Cost: Affordable because some batches will have the same shape but made of delrin, or plastic, with weight rings.
Playability: fun for all to enjoy.
This is gonna be fun.
