We are thrilled now that we have received the first load of Sam boxes fresh from the factory!
The boxes turned out even better than we hoped. The surface is quite durable
and relatively water resistent. The boxes are robust… and finally they are real
carboard boxes like we always wanted them to be! Like in the 80s, only cooler!
The boxes (and a lot of other things in the final distribution of Sam) are hand made.
They are also not ready as such, because we don’t want any cartridges or disks to
fly around in the box. Therefore, we put so-called inlays into these boxes that hold
what’s inside. The design of the inlays (they need custom made implements to
make them fit) is ready and along with the boxes we have also received the
first couple of hundred inlays.
And that means the next step in the production is beginning for us now:
we have to glue the inlays into the boxes! We were testing out numerous
glues until we found one that suits Sam, however we are good to go now!
In the end, every piece of Sam’s Journey will be a unique labour of love.
