About this project

What is it?

It's simply a personalized identification for your drinks that lets you know whose drinks are whose.  Consequently, this keeps us from sharing germs etc and helps you finish one drink before opening another. Make sure everyone has My Germs on their bottles!

We're Wasting Money & Resources!

Without knowing which drink is ours, the safest route is to get a new one. This creates massive amounts of waste in the form of unnecessary discarded bottles, valuable water, beer, sodas, juice and more being poured down the drain.

 "This is great tool that everyone should have and I love the colors!" ~ Sarah S. of Houston, TX.

My Germs Makes Parties Better?

Most of us have been to a party and seen lots of half-full or nearly full bottled drinks left lying around. We know the reasons why too! My Germs Tabs change this.  Knowing where your drink is allows you to finish it before opening another and the longer the drinks last, the better the party!

We're wasting resources and money!

It's quite possible that we are wasting trillions of gallons of water and pouring billions of dollars in bottled drinks down the drain.  This is a world-wide problem and it can now easily be solved.

Problem Solved!

Park Your My Germs Tab On Any Magnetic Surface

Keep My Germs tabs at home for all your friends and family to use and they won't open more than one bottle at a time, making them more efficient drinkers!  They will dispose of, or recycle their bottles instead of leaving them lying around half-full and nobody will share GERMS!

Keep Tabs On Your Bottles and...

  • Be sure everyone know whose bottles are whose.
  • Help prevent the spread of germs. 
  • Greatly reduce plastic, glass and aluminium waste.
  • Make your social gatherings last longer!
  • Help people be more responsible.
  • Safely put drinks back in the cooler or fridge.
  • Save money!
  • See your bottle at night. My Germs Tabs glow!

ID Your Drinks Before They're Stolen!

My Germs For Promotion!

The best way to keep your brand in front of people is to give them something they can use for life.  Get custom My Germs Tabs in the color/s you want and with a custom message around the rim and we'll consult with you on how each tab will be personalized differently!  You are not going to believe how awesome of a promotion it will be for your company or major league team!

Funding Needed

We are seeking funding of $8000 to pay for a production mold that when needed, can produce as many as 100,000 blank My Germs tabs per week. We also need an additional $5,000 to retro-fit and upgrade the machines at WristbandConnection.com where all the personalizing will be done. This will also pay for the jigs to be made that will hold the tabs into the machines as they are engraved.  

Thank you!

Thank you in advance for your support us in getting this project off the ground.  We know you are going to love the product and it will improve your life in many ways.  It's a lot of fun to use, has more benefits than we have mentioned and we look forward to seeing your ideas for uses soon. Thank you for sharing My Germs and please feel free to contribute to any of our social media pages.  We look forward to your ideas and interacting with you about them.

I've put hundreds of hours into this project and am pumped to finally have it live! But now we need to get it on front of the right people. I'd love your help spreading the word. Thanks!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges related to this project are minimal for us. Over the last 13 years we have personalized millions of silicone items and created systems for dealing with hundreds of orders per day with high efficiency. Scaling would be our biggest challenge beyond 6480 units per hour, but we have experience in scaling our operations and if My Germs reaches this kind of demand, we expect we will be ready to take on the challenge.

The relationship with our manufacturer goes back nearly 10 years and they are experienced in delivering hundreds of millions of items per month. In the event there is any issue with this manufacturer, we have 4 more back up manufacturers who can produce My Germs Tabs.

Although you are funding a new idea, you are not funding a startup, just our project's financial needs to create the product efficiently.

We hope you enjoy the process as much as we have so far and that you love this product as much as we do!

Thank you for your support, please continue to show support by sharing our campaign with your friends and contributing in the comments. We are really looking forward to producing My Germs bottle tabs for you!
