The Past, Present, and Future of Hero Holds


The past, the present, the future. Much has been professed about time. Countless idioms contradict themselves regarding the importance of time. Does history repeat itself? Should I live for today? Is tomorrow a new day? The answer to all these questions is yes!

The following is an update of the past, present, and future of Hero Holds.

The future of Hero Holds will bring new, innovative ways to express yourself. Designs, colors, brand logos, custom mini photos-all of these can be added to the corners of your art. Close your eyes and picture the world map in your office hung with Hero Holds. In each corner is a small photograph from your last trip to the Bahamas. Swap those pictures out when you get home from your next trip. Keep your living space fresh. We’re also dreaming of matting that is compatible with Hero Holds. Give your college degree the formal appearance it deserves and still avoid the frame and holes in the wall. The design and technology behind Hero Holds is sound, but there are countless ways for us to reinvent the brand in the future.

The present. A gift. Hero Holds has been extremely fortunate to have so much support. From product tests to brainstorming sessions to this Kickstarter campaign, I’m grateful for everyone who has been a part of the process. Personally, I take the most pleasure from the daily interactions with customers, partners, and friends. Hero Holds is a product, a solution, but also a vehicle for me to have fierce conversations with others. 

Currently, we are at 37% funding for our Kickstarter campaign. We have 11 days left to reach our $12,000 goal. We’re not on pace, but there’s still hope! We’re getting media coverage later this week. We’ll continue to tell our story in the coming days.

The past. A closed book. Available for us to study and learn from. Let me share with you a pattern I’ve noticed from my past. I have been afraid of failure. I grew up playing sports and am pretty competitive. I like playing games I can win! A fear of failure is unhealthy. I recognized it and didn’t like it. I would like to think I’ve overcome this fear a bit, though. I mean, exhibit A, look at that first attempt at a Hero Holds. That clunky device didn’t cut it. It was a total fail. It’s laughable. But it makes me smile for more reasons that just its shortcomings. We burned through dozens of prototypes, brand names and design ideas to get to today’s Hero Holds. As of now, Hero Holds provides a brand new, superior poster hanging solution that can’t be achieved using any other device. 

As they say, the future is unknown. I couldn’t be more excited about the next 11 days. Today is the day for you to reach out to those who should know about Hero Holds. 100% of your friends want to save time and money. According to our surveys, 100% of our customers have been pleased with their Hero Holds. We have 11 more days to dream big and try to bring this Kickstarter campaign to its funding goal. If it’s anything like the last 30 days, it’s going to be fun!
