This simple system of individual finger bumps simply peel and stick to the flat back of your device in any array that naturally fits your hand, and the way you use your device.  With phones getting larger and tablets rapidly replacing the laptop market, it's not unusual for consumers to own 3 or more devices. Griptipz give you the ability to grab and hold your product tight  - with more comfort and security. 

Similiar to the resistance that bumps provide a rock climber to pull against, Griptipz give the user a patent pending system to snug their device into the pad of their hand to increase sure-handedness.

Who's talking about and mentioning Griptipz

Ergonomic comfort in 5 fun colors

Griptipz are constructed out of a soft, santoprene, rubber like material that provides a comfortable bumper for fingers to pull against. By placing the bumpers exactly where your hand naturally wants to grip on the back of your device, you can stop cramping, uncomfortable, contorted squeezing and juggling of your phones and tablets.

Product brochures for the holidays! Delivery in February 2015

Although we can't get you your products for this holiday season, we will ship a small Griptipz brochure (for each package in your order) in time to fit into a holiday stocking or gift box.

Help us go VIRAL and receive FREE product!

Help us go viral to reach our stretch goal of $200,000 and we'll double your order. This offer is available for anyone who has backed us to date (as of November 27) and for those jumping in now. Please follow the instructions closely below and you can complete your holiday, unique gift needs! And you can feel so good about helping a start-up reach our goal!

Here's how it works - you MUST complete all 3 steps

1) Choose the product level/color that you would like to back (we're so grateful). Once Kickstarter ends December 17th, you will receive a SURVEY and will be asked to identify which additional FREE products you would like to receive. Note: this must be at the same backer level and, includes product pledges only. 

2) Share this Kickstarter with this link: http://bit.ly/Griptipz on any social media such as facebook or twitter and of course; please tout the fact that you just backed this very cool Kickstarter product and by doing so, they can also receive FREE product.

3) Shoot us an email at customerservice@griptipz.com with a screenshot or a link of where you shared it.

It's that simple.

We love seeing how excited everyone is getting about Griptipz!

Our timeline to your reward

We're in the process of die creation and with your support, we will move into injection molding and packaging by mid-December. We anticipate your product delivery in early February. 

Our 'Stretch Goal'

Our 'stretch goal' of $200,000 would enable us to build out a semi-automated assembly line which would really help position us for mass distribution. Let's see if we can get there together!

Risks and challenges

When taking a new product through development and into production, there is always the chance of unexpected challenges. We have assembled a team of engineers and manufactures who together have many decades of experience in research and development working with consumer products. We are confident that any potential bumps that arise would be easily resolved.

We have chosen Colorado Manufactures for Griptipz and intend to assemble all product here as well. All manufacturers and printers have been brought together to ensure that we are working as a unified team.

We have a quality control process in place and are confident you will enjoy your end product.

We intend to provide images, videos and as we begin to market to the general public, we hope to include you in some of our fun!

Thank you again!

Robin and Hannah
