Barnacle Coasters Launches Successful KickStarter Campaign

Company Brings On Funded Today To Increase Pledges 

— Barnacle Coasters, a mobile and reusable coaster, has recently reached its funding goal on KickStarter. They have also partnered with Funded Today to help bring their product to a wider audience and increase pledges for the remaining weeks of their campaign.

About The Coaster

Barnacle Coasters were designed to keep condensation from dripping off a cup or glass. This coaster fits securely around any glass and prevents drips from any angle by trapping the condensation and keeping it in. The coasters are dishwasher safe, portable and come in multiple colors.

Pricing and Availability

Barnacle Coasters are available to back now on KickStarter. The campaign is hopeful for an increase in pledges with the help of Funded Today and their team. Once the campaign ends, the coasters are set to produce and ship to all backers by November of 2017. The starting price for a 4-pack of coasters is $20 USD.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, July 19, 2017

San Diego, CA— On Wednesday, August 9th, 2017, San Diego’s hottest startup, Barnacle Coasters, the creators of an eco-friendly beverage coaster that traps condensation and keeps surfaces dry, will launch its nationwide Kickstarter campaign at DeskHub, San Diego’s premiere collaborative and co-working workspace. 

“People have literally been using the same ancient coasters forever. We are a company seeking to disrupt this sleeping industry. Our mission is to produce a game-changing coaster for people who care about our environment,” said Mark Prophet, CEO of Barnacle Coasters. 

“We’ve always seen ourselves as a launchpad for world-class companies and products. The San Diego Startup scene is taking off and we are proud to be a commander center for Barnacle Coasters, an environmentally-conscious company with a global outlook.” said Monique Williamson of DeskHub. 

The Barnacle Coaster can be used with various containers to mitigate and preclude undesired dripping by collecting condensation and directing it to a reservoir at the bottom of the coaster. The coaster, which attaches and moves with the cup, may be installed and removed with one hand to end issues associated with condensation dripping on your desk, coffee table, clothes and provides stability on uneven or smooth surfaces. 

Barnacle Coasters will use Kickstarter, the world's largest funding platform for creative projects, to provide the first-ever orders of the patent-pending coaster. The launch will take place at DeskHub, a co-working space committed to providing small and startup businesses with space and business resources, which works to integrate them with the larger San Diego innovation ecosystem. 

While protecting surfaces from condensation, the Barnacle Coaster is reusable and dishwasher friendly. With every purchase, Barnacle Coasters will be contributing a percentage of profits to The Ocean Cleanup, a global organization aimed to rid our oceans from waste. For more information on the Barnacle or the launch, please reach out to Co-Founder Alan Mondus at (612) 695-9279 or alan@barnaclecoasters.com. 

Don’t Sweat It.
