)-- An innovative new product designed as an eye-catching yet functional novelty item, the UP in Smoke Ashtray, has been developed by John Gangel of Ravenna, Ohio. The invention's unique design provides its users with a fully usable ash tray that will also draw some laughs.
The UP in Smoke Ashtray will easily lend itself to customization. The product is intended to capitalize on a new segment of the smoker’s market that is experiencing rapid growth. Additionally, the UP in Smoke Ashtray will be competitively priced and made from durable aluminum, adding to its appeal and making it a wise investment.
The inventor of the UP in Smoke Ashtray has developed a working prototype that has been utilized with success. The UP in Smoke Ashtray is also currently in Patent Pending status within the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Mr. Gangel now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the novelty products industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the UP in Smoke Ashtray on a worldwide basis.
In March 2014, Mr. Gangel contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the UP in Smoke Ashtray to potential licensees for a 2 year period.
