What is Reflip?
Reflip takes any 10-second clip from a video of your choice and transforms it into a fun custom flipbook that you can gift to your friends and family or just keep for yourself! We found that many flipbook companies mass produce flipbooks from contrived photo booths, forcing posed pictures (which can be fun at times too!). But we wanted to create personal flipbooks that capture candid moments. Reflip is all about converting special spontaneous moments into surprising and delightful gifts, allowing you to create something special from what would have just been one more video on your phone.
Once we are funded, users can upload a video onto our website before purchasing a Reflip. They will be given the option to choose cover colors and add personal messages.
Why is Reflip Special?
Reflip is special because it is not just another fleeting video that you get in the form of a text message or in an email. It is a meaningful keepsake of a special moment with your friends and family. To make it personal, Reflip allows you to select a fun cover color, create a personal message, and send a Reflip through the mail as a surprise to anyone you want.
What will you give in your Reflip?

We can't wait to make your flipbook and see the videos you send us!
Bringing Reflip to Life: Why Kickstarter?
We’ve been cutting and crafting each Reflip by hand, and we've had success with small-scale production among our family, friends, and acquaintances. Through user testing, we've refined our product and live website, and we are confident that we are ready for full-scale production.
Unfortunately, it's not easy to do small print runs of flipbooks. Producing only one copy of your personal Reflip, cutting the Reflips from large 12"x18" sheets of paper, and binding them is time-consuming and pricey, which is why we need your help, Kickstarter! We are currently engaged with professional printing services and have received quotes for manufacturing our first round of 500 Reflips. Your money will go directly to helping us cover our costs for printing, binding, shipping, and delivering your Reflip into your hands.
What's in it for you?
REWARDS! We have spent the last few months creating Reflip, and we want to bring that to you!
As rewards for funding our project, we will give you Reflips and Reflip swag:
Reflip Sticker Reward
Stickers and Wooden Post Cards Rewards
Risks and challenges
We have been collecting our videos through our website, handcrafting Reflips, and delivering them to customers for a while now. Although this will be the first large-scale production run of Reflip, we are confident in our ability to deliver the offered rewards to our backers as promised!
We have estimated this Kickstarter will allow us to do a first run of at least 500 flipbooks but we also want to be prepared for any unforeseen challenges, or quantities greater than 500 so just to be safe we have given ourselves margin on the major steps of our timeline.
Our family and friends love Reflip and we are sure you will too... but we are counting on you to help us make Reflip the best possible product it can be!
We can't promise that everything will go perfectly with the production and shipping of Reflip, but we can guarantee that if you make us aware we will always make it right and learn from our mistakes.
We are so excited you are willing to partner with us in making reflip a reality!
We can't thank you enough!!
Iris & Steph!
