Injection Molding of a Card Holder





Gyro Holdings is in the recreational travel industry and markets accessories and memorabilia. After employing market research, one of the findings was that room keycards and boarding passes were kept by many as memorabilia for sentimental reasons. Instead of these items being thrown into a box to be rarely seen, it was decided to make a product that could display these items, giving more importance to these memories. It was decided the best method to display these items would be in a small frame with inserted magnetic strips so that it could be attached to a fridge or placed in a small picture stand in the customers home.

This new product follows Gyro Holdings' current product line of travel memorabilia and accessories. This product also works to test a new subcategory of the market for which there are no current products to fulfil this need.

Problem Statement

Manufacture a production run of 10,000 units of a ticket holder. This will be done by injection molding in either ABS or silicone. Assemble the two halves with a magnet inside and package the unit.

Envisioned Solution

  1. Using injection molding, manufacture the two halves of the ticket holder.
  2. Print logo on the rear half.
  3. Insert magnets between the halves.
  4. Glue the two halves together.
  5. Package individual units.
  6. Bulk package final products for shipping.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
