Here’s another quick update. We were thrilled with the first batch of prototypes that the new manufacturer provided in both look and feel. It has taken us a long time, but we’ve finally been able to embody the magic of our original concept in a mass-producible design.
We’re currently waiting on our second (and hopefully last) round of prototypes to work out some size-discrepancies. We want a consistent look across the PrismPal line and so a few measurements need to be adjusted.
A notable difference between the new versions is that the fabric is digitally printed, not screen-printed. Unlike before, you can no longer “feel” the pattern on the fabric. Rub your fingers across a cheap t-shirt and you’ll know what we mean. Now, the pattern is one with the fabric making it look and feel exponentially better. Check out the comparison below.

Our new and improved friend, Cubert!
We hope you agree that we made the right decision.
In the time that we’ve been waiting for prototypes, we’ve been able to wrap up all of the booklets and packaging designs. Here’s a new sample from Rhonda's edition of Hey! Prismland:

Lastly, we’ve been semi-regularly updating our blog with content that we think our customers will enjoy. We’re sort of throwing a bunch of stuff at the wall to see what sticks for now but as we grow and receive feedback, we’ll be able to better tailor the posts. We have also updated our website to include our worksheets. If you haven’t seen the page yet, check it out here: http://prismland.com/pages/learn
We'll be sure to let you all know as soon as we hear about new prototypes.
