Dream Big. Or Else.

Posted by Lance Atkins on November 23, 2010 7 Comments

As a little kid, what did you dream to be? Astronaut? Dancer? Cowboy? Robber?  I, for decades, have wanted to be an airplane pilot. I blame it on the movie “Top Gun,” which was clearly the pinnacle of Tom Cruise’s life and career.

Blackbox Case has formed as a product of friendships and, well, dreams. We dream of being artisans, giving back to our community, changing the industry norm, pushing wood to a new and unseen level of perfection, creating something new, employing someone who is down-and-out, building a children’s school in Abu Dhabi.

…There is one caveat to your dreams, though. You have to risk that which you fear most: failure. So we set before you our risk. We have been working so, so hard to perfection. There are jobs that have been quit, money invested, and a few cuts and criticisms along the way.

We encourage you to follow our journey and to start your own. What do you want most? Start a business? That pretty girl on the subway? Ride a wild ostrich? Believe you want it and do it. We promise, the freedom is wonderful.

Welcome to the family, and meet the new Blackbox Case.

I’ve been using my MacBook Pro 13" oak case for 2+ years and re-stumbled across this post.
I have an amazing case for my laptop and it still looks and performs flawless!
Congrats to Blackbox case for starting and living your dreams. It is a rarity to find a well made and unique product then to hear of the amazing people behind the product.

Keep up the great work – keep living your dreams and inspiring others to kick fears ass and do what we dream!

Thank you,

Got the case I ordered and gave it to my daughter last night as a Christmas gift and she absolutely loved it, I knew after initially seeing it on line that I could not go wrong ordering it for her, I was correct. Thanks for the great product & I plan on ordering more for myself and others, great product!

Merry Christmas to the BlackBox Team and congratulations on the development and implementation of a great product!

Every year he says, “What do you want for Christmas honey?” with that expectant grin. Every year I say, “Oh I don’t know. You decide.” A few days ago, I got the look again, but this time I had an answer. Thank you for my Christmas gift, these are stunning and probably my best accessory to date.
