Understands today unveiled “Meet the Baxters” on Kickstarter, a family of rear-mounted storage solutions designed to promote happy workspaces, declutter desktops, and greet people with joyful artwork.
Ranging in styles and configurations, there are currently 5 Baxters in the family –Joe, Mary, Shira, Nigel and Art. They slide on the back of iMacs easily without tools or adjustments. Made in the USA, the Baxters are constructed from a very strong cross-laminated birch that provides an ideal blend of strength and weight. The result is a durable and lightweight storage solution that is beautiful and guaranteed for life.
The Baxters come in 3 surface finishes –1) walnut veneer, 2) metallic paint, and 3) contour custom printing in which customers upload their own artwork or select from stock art to print on all surfaces.
