Introducing The 2022 Bitcoin Briefcase



BACKGROUND:
For 20 years, ClearPC has built custom promotional plexiglass briefcases for companies like Helmut Lang® and Microsoft®. We've worked with Rhianna's Fenty® brand and were privileged to be a part of Capitalist Man's art shown in the New York Post. In February 2022, we are launching 100 completely clear "Bitcoin Briefcases," each one containing over 1000 gold, stamped "Bitcoins" with a custom laser etching of the Bitcoin logo. Each Bitcoin Briefcase will be adorned with gold colored case hardware to match the gold Bitcoins suspended inside the briefcase. These coins will be located in a central housing, suspended seemingly in air. Overhadowing this, the laser etched Bitcoin logo will present a unique view of the suspended coins inside.

For more information, stay tuned to this web site (photo above is our ClearPC Promotions briefcase on a sandy beach, Summer, Victoria BC Canada). We look forward to showing you the real Bitcoin briefcase as soon as we have imagery. For now, a pre-order is available below via our Bitpay® link (Bitcoin is accepted as payment method only, no other cryptocurrency or fiat currency is accepted for this offering).

PROPERTIES:
The light transmission properties of the Bitcoin briefcase is higher than glass. The case is light and strong and features clear acrylic hinges, a sturdy 3/8" thermoformed handle flanked by 2 nickel-plated acorn nuts for fastening and 2 nickel plated door clasps. Eight clear bump-ons are situated on the bottom of the case and on the back side providing protection from table scratches and offering a secure grip to avoid slides. Each case is built by hand, flamed for ultimate clarity and polished to a lustrous shine. Ships in a protective plastic bag, bubbled wrapped to ensure safe delivery.

OUR PROCESS:
We begin with two CNC cut sheets of plexiglass, heating and bending the two halves to form the rounded edge body. To form that edge, the heated sheets are allowed to cool in a restrictor and once at the appropriate temperature, we bond the edges to each half. All bonds are given 24 hours to cure. This bond is actually a molecular bond and forms the two halves of the case. The result is a sealed, waterproof, super-strong half-box. The excess material from these edges is trimmed using a high speed router table. The resulting cut forms a milky color on every side but once hand flamed with an oxy-acetylene torch, each case edge shines.

Once the two halves of our case are formed, bonded, routed and hand-flamed, we join the two halves using a clear acrylic hinge. Both halves are first placed into a second restrictor and then aligned. The hinges are then applied with the same bonding agent to form an ultra-strong join. At this point, all of our square acrylic risers are cut and bonded to the case bottom. These risers allow the case to stand vertically, above the hinge barrel and pins. Each one is flamed for clarity. On top of each riser, we add a clear rubber "bump-on" adding a non-skid grip to the bottom of each case. We also add four more clear bump-ons to the side of the clear acrylic briefcase in all four corners. This allows you to place the plexiglass case on a table with the side down and open the case without the briefcase touching the table surface. Bump-ons have a super-grip so the case doesn't slide.

With the bump-ons installed, our clear briefcase is ready for catch hardware. We marry a nickel-plated catch to the case aligning both halves with eight stainless steel screws. The catches match the handles four nickel-plated rounded-over acorn nuts (sometimes called castle nuts).

The last item we add is our own, in-house manufactured clear acrylic case handle. Our briefcase handle starts out as a handle pattern cut from a sheet of cast 3/8" plexiglass. This sheet thickness offers a very solid handle feel in 3/8". We place the cut handle pattern over our metal oven molds and the handles are then heated to approximately 400 degrees fahrenheit. Once heated, they fall naturally over the molds. The handles are then allowed to cool in the oven slowly and many hours later, are removed from the molds. Each handle will then undergo hand-flaming, polishing and lastly, installation.

Finally, we center the handle and join it to the briefcase with gold screws from the bottom up, capping the tops with attractive, gold acorn nuts. All of the acorn nuts match the gold hardware of the catches nicely.
