What's a go-comb?

Go-combs are combs that fit right in your wallet like a credit card. Made from a variety of plastics and metals, they're durable, waterproof and work well in all hair types! Some even double as a mirror, for the ultimate grooming accessory.

Who are go-combs for?

It's pretty simple: if you have hair, you could use a go-comb. We have a variety of materials and styles to provide stylistic options for everyone, men, women, kids, pets, you name it! Whether you carry it with you every day, or use it when you need it (travel, beach, night out, etc.), you'll find it's a handy piece and a fun gift.

Tell me more about the rewards.

Below are some photos and descriptions of each reward level. If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Other Rewards

The rest are multiples of the above, so more for you or share the go-comb love!

Why are you raising money?

So far I've been able to run my go-comb production through laser cutting. This was a great way to test out the product and concept, without a lot of up front cost. Now that the interest in go-comb is growing, I need to bring manufacturing up a notch to meet the demand. 

Your support of go-comb will go toward two areas:

Scalable Manufacturing
I've done a lot of research and have found local manufacturers I want to partner with — we've come up with a new process that will both bring costs down while improving quality. These processes require a significant up front investment, which is why I need to raise some funds.

Personalization Equipment
One thing I've learned (and love) is that people enjoy giving go-combs as gifts. Whether a stocking stuffer, a Father's day gift or groomsmen/bridesmaid set, personalized go-combs were really popular when I offered them. In order to offer personalized options again, I need to invest in my own laser cutter, which will allow me to fulfill personalized orders quickly and efficiently.

Last but not least...

I want to give a huge THANKS to everyone who contributed to building this campaign: my awesome friends who braved the camera, Andrew who lent us legit photo equipment and most importantly my husband Zack who shot and edited the video — I love you!

And here's an advanced thanks to anyone who decides to support the campaign or shares it with their friends. This will not happen without you!

Risks and challenges

In order to confidently deliver rewards on time, I've already done the legwork in developing manufacturing relationships and even testing materials. These manufacturing partners are accustomed to high volumes, so I'm optimistic they can handle all of the orders (I hope) Kickstarter brings in.

The biggest potential hiccup would be becoming overwhelmed by orders, in which case I would need help with shipping. That seems like an excellent opportunity to hire a team, and tackle the work together. I wouldn't mind some company!
