Have you ever considered the idea of having a segment of yo-yos or yo-yo available as a fully custom to order model? For example there is a particular shoe made by Nike one can customize online with your favorite team or logo set, colors and text like your name or logo on as a custom made order.
Low Key Throws does custom laser engravings on their wood caps.
But for a custom anno retail yoyo, it wouldn’t make much sense. To do a one-off colorway/engraving on every yoyo would require it to be quite expensive for the customer for it to be worth the hassle for the manufacturer.
Kyle used to have a website you could choose your profile and shape and bearing etc and they were cheep as I recall. I never dropped the hammer on that though.
You mean this site? http://kyostoys.com/
It has a cool little 2d/3d builder program built into the site.
Yep that’s the one!
Oh yeah- I saw that one this week also.
Lots of people do custom work and you can always prototype your own yoyos!
I’ve been known to do this too (done 3 so far). No idea about UNPRLDs pricing on this, we’re probably very similar though.
Oh cool, another totally awesome thing that I cannot afford to do.
And truthfully, I wouldn’t even know where to start lol.
I can make some custom stuff within reason. Usually just the choice of woods.
