Calc Camasi

Hello. 

I’m Oana and I’m that kind of girl that takes advantage of the simple things around in order to make people’s life prettier. And yes, I’m the girl with the black hat in the video; I’m the one that gave birth to this idea and then kept it alive for 2 years now. And I’m also the one that you should follow in order to find great stories about this project and to see that no matter what, I will make home-made ironing happen! :) 

Reallythanks for being here!

Calc Camasi

Story of Calc Cămăși

For one and a half years we’ve been testing the market, price ranks and we have validated the idea with minimum initial investment, through a lean start-up principle. In the past half year, Calc Cămăși prepared to became a business ready to be relaunched in January 2014. Calc Cămăși irons efficient and properly. Traditional, home-made in our home locations. Besides what you knew about us, the new Calc Cămăși it will be addressed not only to men, but ladies and families also, in order to iron not only their shirts, but also some other regular to-wear items: 


Adults: shirts, blouses, trousers, jeans. 

Kids: shirts, blouses, trousers, jeans..

Family: bed sheets.


The nicest part of this business is the fact that we don’t have headquarters or an industrial hall with lots of ironing machines. Calc Camasi doesn’t agree with the automation yet focus on classical, by-hand and properly ironing. Each lady will be ironing at her place, in a room screened from animals, smoke and odor. All the orders will be placed and payments will be done on the web platform that we’re already working at.

Team

People say that Oana manages to bring close to her great people. It happened in this project also, cause I managed to bring closer some awesome people that we’re willing to help, even though the budget was always close to zero. About them you will hear more during this campaign, on facebook or blog. And trust me, you’ll like to meet them, because they are doing great jobs!!

Budget

We’ve turned to the crowdfunding system cause in order to bring this project to the next level, we need to cover some needs that need to be payed in advance. 6500€ is the amount that we plan to spend on a car that will help us deliver in Bucharest (3500€), and also to build an optimized web platform that will manage properly the whole system: payments, shirts tracking and easy communication with the customers (3000€). 

Risks and Challenges 

When it comes to fulfillment, every project has potential obstacles. Of course, we expect to avert them. If we don’t raise enough money to buy the car, we will still deliver your shirt with our personal car. So that your items come back to you in the timeframe promised. 

And since that campaign ends just before Christmas Holidays, we are nervous about that people leave Bucharest and the vouchers won’t arrive at them in hard copy. We are willing to send them digitalized so they can arrive in time to the right person.

Other ways of supporting

We also accept: 

  • sponsorships for ironing machines 

We dream to iron with the best domestic ironing machines. If you are a brand on this market and you feel like collaborate, we are ready to say out loud that our ladies iron with some great classic but god damn good ironing machines.

  • your mom or your neighbor

We’re looking for the best skilled ladies in Bucharest. We like to believe that we invented best this job, and that we also have some natural rules for it. So if you know an unemployed lady that spends her time at home, she knows very well to iron and she lives in Bucharest (any area) and she is open to a collaboration that will bring her great financial and social horizons, we are here ready to meet her!  

  • the car you have, but don’t need 

Maybe you have a car that you don’t use anymore. You don’t have to give it to us for life, but rather borrow it, and we’ll pay the gas and find a driver for it. For Calc Camasi, the delivery system is not a source of income. It's a need of the customers that we’d like to cover and a financial opportunity for someone that will do with passion this service.

  • offers for B2B partnerships

If you have a company that has employees and partners, then you’ll definitely will be thrilled to surprise them in an unlike way: gifting vouchers. We create them especially for you, and personalize the vouchers especially for them.  

Notes

  • the delivery will start as soon as the campaign ends. And as we wish to deliver them personally, we’ll do our best to arrive at you very close to Christmas, Dec 23rd. 
  • vouchers can we used starting with January 15th 2014, just after the relaunch. 
  • the acquisition of the vouchers can be made from the left hand side list of rewards, and the personalization request can be done at oana at calc camasi dot ro.

FAQ

  • Ce face practic Calc Cămăși? 

Practic, călcă oamenilor cămășile ca acasă, doar că la noi acasă! Se bazează pe priceperea doamnelor și pe magia socială construită prin întâlnirea cu persoana care îți calcă hainele. Care nu e nici soția, nici prietena, nici doamna care îți face curat. Este o doamnă aproape de tine care se pricepe al naibii de bine la ceea ce face.

  • N-ar fi mai logic să faceți livrarea cu un curier? 

Nu. Pentru că cel mai probabil, curierului nu îi pasă de cămășile tale așa cum ne pasă nouă. Ți le promitem călcate impecabil, deci vrem să ți le livrăm tot așa. Insistăm pe lucrurile bine făcute, și chiar n-am vrea ca lucrurile la care și tu, și noi ținem, să ajungă printre niște colete și scrisori. 

  • Călcați și la domiciliul clientului? 

Din motive de siguranță și respectare a intimității lui, nu. Călcăm la noi acasă, în cele mai decente și firești condiții. 

  • Cât va funcționa serviciul după lansare? Și cât va costa? 

Clientul își va aduce hainele la călcat la cea mai apropiată doamnă din zona în care se află, sau alternativ va accesa serviciul de livrare disponibil în București. Prețul serviciului este de 6 lei, aplicat oricărui obiect vestimentar de adult, plus un cost suplimentar de 20 lei aplicat extra în cazul serviciului de livrare. Plata și comanda se vor efectua în prealabil prin platforma web.
