Check out our FAQs below to learn how to request tax exempt status or get a quote for your school!
To apply for sales tax exemption, first make an account on itsinventable.com. Then, using the email address you signed up with, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a fully-filled out copy of your most recent Tax Exempt Certificate. Make sure our information is included in the Seller Fields.
748 S 4th Street, 2F
Philadelphia, PA 19147
Once we process your request and enter the data, your orders from that account will be tax exempt. Please use this account only going forward. Tax exemption status is account-specific, and will not automatically be available to other accounts for the school or organization. If you need to place an order that does not qualify for tax exemption, please checkout as a guest or create a separate account.
We utilize a plugin on the site that can generate an quote before you place your order. Build your cart as you would to make a standard purchase. Then, click on the cart. Instead of checking out, instead click the "Educator Quote Request" button and enter your email address. You will receive a quote detailing the order you built, which you can submit to your school or organization. Your cart is saved between site visits, so you can come back and easily complete the checkout later.
InvenTABLE can only accept purchase orders with specific terms, because the product is still only available for pre-order and shipping timelines are subject to change. As a crowd-funded project, we need to take payment for pre-orders prior to delivering them. This allows us to pay for manufacturing of the pre-ordered product. Additionally, since we are in the early process of manufacturing, we can offer a delivery estimate but cannot guarantee a delivery timeline at this point. So, we can only accept purchase orders that align the following specifications:
- Orders will be pending until they are invoiced and paid. Pre-ordered products will not be shipped until they are paid.
- Shipping timeline is subject to change, as per Terms of Service.
If your organization is interested in pre-ordering InvenTABLE and can submit a purchase order that aligns with these terms, you or your procurement team can reach out to email@example.com.
We intend to accept purchase orders with a more standard process from educational organizations after we have available stock, and will issue an update to Kickstarter and our email list when we are in a position to do so.
Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with your organization information and the information you need. In most cases, we will be able to provide information like a W-9 to help you verify InvenTABLE and purchase for your organization.
There are bundles of 5x and 10x InvenTABLEs that are a discounted rate over a single purchase. Additionally, we've partnered with GovX to offer a 10% educator discount on any products. You can take advantage of this by clicking the GovX button on the cart if you have at least one item in your cart.
You will have to complete a form on the GovX popup which requires providing your email and other information to GovX for verification.

Hear what teachers have to say!
InvenTABLE is a true game-changer for young creators, sparking creativity and enabling safe exploration. It's such a fun maker tool, I can't help but wish I had one when I was a kid!

I'm really excited to see such an accessible tool that our students can safely use without having lots of adult hands on deck. Feeling empowered in that way would be game changing for our middle schoolers.

My son makes things out of cardboard all the time, but scissors and box cutters aren't safe. This is the perfect solution.
Father of 8 year old
There's so much autonomy in it and my daughter was so proud of what she made.
Mother of 9 year old
I love that my kid is learning about power tool safety and how to respect them. I'm less scared she'll hurt herself on mine.
