Ever wished you were cuter, lighter, and more portable? 

Foldable.Me lets you create a little cardboard sidekick to look like you or your friends. Customise your Foldable on our website and we’ll send them on a postal journey to anywhere in the world.

No messy glue or scissor work needed. They come precision cut and scored. A few quick folds and they'll be standing proud at just over 8cm tall.

The perfect lil gift

We think they make an awesome gift. Who wouldn't love a little friend to hang out with at work, at home or in the bar? You can even add a hidden message on the bottom. 

Why we made them?

We set out to make an affordable personalised present that didn't suck. Until now, mass customisation meant 2D - lame gift cards or t-shirts. We wanted to offer something a bit more special.

And so the Foldable.Me service was born. Working with the talented Chris Beaumont of CubeeCraft we made a simple model. People simply loved the little guy and wanted one for themselves. We knew this needed to happen.

What we’ve done so far

Burning on coffee fumes and enthusiasm, we launched a website and built a super slick character creation tool. A small batch of prototypes have been manufactured and most of the production details have been finalised. 

What you are supporting

Foldable.Me is so close to being a reality. We just need your help to pay for tooling and production of the first print run. Additional money will go towards creating more clothing options and facial features so you can get the look you want.

A skilled team of illustrators and printers design and manufacture Foldables in the UK and USA. Each one is made to order using high quality inks and top notch card. To keep things simple worldwide shipping is included.

Thank you for your interest. We hope to have Foldables zipping across the world soon.
