Why We Got Started
Sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment when a brilliant idea comes to you, when inspiration strikes just the right notes to show you the path waiting ahead. Not us. We love traveling! That’s how we got the idea for Newverest. It’s as simple as that.
Okay, maybe not quite that simple. There is a bit of a story behind it. Our best friend was having a birthday, and we were on the hunt for the perfect gift. Only all the good gifts had already been taken. Our bestie is an enthusiastic traveler, but what’s the perfect gift for a traveler? We didn’t want something you can pull off a shelf at any big chain superstore, we wanted something special. Something that would really connect with him.
That’s when we found the thing that would change our lives forever – the Scratch Off map. What better gift for an explorer than a way to keep their memories alive? They can showcase the places they’ve been and plan the places they want to go. But all the maps we found were cheap and poorly made. Even with so many sellers, they were just copying each other’s badly made designs. Heck, we could do better than that. Voila! The Newverest Trek Scratcher® was born.
