The New Glif, on Kickstarter!

6 likes

Hello original Glif backers!

Can you believe it's been almost six years since the original Kickstarter campaign? A lot has changed since then, and we still have you to thank for taking a flyer on a couple guys with a simple idea, and effectively launching our business for us. We are forever indebted!

Since the original campaign, we have released several updates to the Glif as new iPhones were introduced, but we are back on Kickstarter to launch our biggest redesign yet. Smartphone photography has advanced significantly in the last half decade, and we want to make the best tripod mount for smartphones, period. Check out our campaign page to learn about the new Glif. We are even releasing a couple other accessories to go along with it.

We hope you take a chance to check out the new campaign, and would love if you would consider backing the Glif again.

Thanks for your continued support!

Tom & Dan

New Project!

Hello Kickstarter Backers!

Well, it’s been a crazy and amazing last few months, and we’re finally ready for another Kickstarter project! We’re calling it the Cosmonaut. It is a minimal, wide-grip capacitive stylus for touch screen devices. Here is the project page.

The idea for this project actually came out of a blog post that Dan did right after the Glif Kickstarter campaign ended. We realized that the perfect stylus for an iPad should be designed to feel like a dry erase marker. Some people seemed to agree, so we thought hey, maybe this can be our second project. We’ve been working on it for the past few months and we have finally arrived at something that we are really excited about.

Like the Glif, we’ll need your help to make this project a reality. We’re trying something new this time around, by instituting a “pay-as-you-wish” payment model, a la Radiohead. Essentially, if you want to become a backer, you can pledge as little or as much as you feel this product is worth to you. We’re very interested to see how this pricing model works out.

Thank you all so much for your continued support. We’re very fortunate to be able to do what we love, and it’s all because of you guys.

PS. There is a very very small percentage of you that have not received your Glifs. This is most likely because we never got your shipping address via the survey we sent out. If you are logged into Kickstarter, there should be a banner at the top of the page that says “Action Needed!” You can fill out the survey from there, and we will get your Glif shipped out ASAP. If you did fill out the survey, but never received your Glif, please email us at info@theglif.com and we will make things right. Thanks!

The Glifs are Shipping

Hello friends,

Well, it seems the grand finale of this project is in sight, as we have started to ship out the Glifs to our backers. Please be patient if you haven't received a confirmation email yet, it will take the fulfillment center a few days to get through all of the orders.

We wanted to take this moment to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. It has been an amazing journey so far, one that will continue on into the future. We're still blown away by the response this project has received, as well as all of your enthusiasm and support. We love that it is possible for two guys to have an idea and turn it into a reality, with the help from a spirited crowd. We live in an awesome world.

We will continue to monitor this project page and check our Kickstarter messages, but moving forward the best way to contact us is on twitter (@theglif) or email (info@theglif.com).

We are so excited for everyone to get their Glifs. If you like it, tell a friend (theglif.com)! If you don't like it, tell us (info@theglif.com). Your comments are incredibly important to us; after all, you're why we're here.

Cheers,
Tom & Dan
