Information: The decision to make a keychain was thought up by a multitude of people. Mr. Clarkson the Engineering and Design teacher, Mr. Sexton a math teacher, and Mrs. Tusick the Entrepreneurship Teacher and myself. We decided to go with the keychain idea because it was something that we could produce efficiently as a product for our Flameworks Studio. The Flameworks Studio is a student run business that students produce products to sell to students, parents and community members. A keychain can be made into many different sizes, shapes, colors and thicknesses. It can be personally designed with whatever the customer would like to have written on it. It can also have a name, date, initial, etc…
I began by trying out different shapes, sizes and thicknesses. I believe about ⅜ inch thickness is good so it won’t be too large hanging on a set of keys. One fail that happened was with the round keychain. I believe that the attachment loop is too close to the edge and may end up wearing too thin. These keychains all printed rather quickly and would be an easy project to make for a group of people.
