About this project
Challenge the status quo and say NO! to bulky iPhone cases.
Introducing Slip Stopper
Slip Stopper is a simple and sexy solution to stop your iPhone 4/4S from slipping out of your hands or pockets.
Slip Stopper preserves the natural flow and beauty of your iPhone 4/4S, while addressing the extremely slippery glass construction.
Created from an epoxy resin material, Slip Stopper is a gel adhesive for the front and back of your iPhone 4/4S that provides fantastic grip without adding any bulk like all cases do. In addition to being scratch resistant and adding shock absorption, Slip Stopper (0.15mm) raises the edge of your iPhone slightly to prevent screen scratches when you put your iPhone face-down.
Once we raise $4,500, the project will be funded!

The Story Behind the Inspiration
As gadget geeks who love our iPhone 4/4S, we're always torn. Here is the dilemma:
On the one hand, we're tempted to put a big case over our iPhone 4/4S for grip. But the problem is, even the thinnest cases add bulk and disturb the natural flow and beauty of our phone, especially something gorgeous like the iPhone 4/4S.
On the other hand, if we didn't put a case on, the iPhone 4/4S is just too darn slippery with its glass construction. It slips out of our hands or pockets too easily, which is no good.
Then we started thinking, what if we could have a simple and minimalistic adhesive on the front and back of the iPhone 4/4S that doesn't add bulk, and at the same time, provided more grip? We tried looking for a product like this, but no one is making it. Not the big case manufacturers, not even here on KickStarter, until now.
Prototype v.s. Final Product
In our videos and photos, we were using a prototype of the Slip Stopper. The final production version will iron out all imperfections, as well as take feedback from the KickStarter community into consideration. The final production version will be compatible with both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
Slip Stopper will be available in pure WHITE or pure BLACK.
*How to Pledge & How KickStarter Works*
We're asking you to pledge so together we can rocket-boost Slip Stopper into production. All of the money received will be used towards the production process, as we need to order in bulk in order to customize Slip Stopper into specification, from the material used to the dimensions to the cut-outs.
KickStarter is a crowd sourcing platform. By pledging and supporting the project, you receive exclusive benefits outlined on the right. Once the funding goal is reached, the project is a go. If the funding goal isn't reached, all of the pledge money will be refunded/returned by KickStarter. To find out more, check out:
Thank You & Thank You Again
Thank you for taking the time to check out the Slip Stopper project and supporting our entrepreneurial dream of creating a simple and elegant solution for the iPhone. We are looking to crowd sourcing to compliment our own investment so we can order in bulk from the manufacturers. This ensures we have the leverage to customize Slip Stopper exactly the way we want, as well as keep per-unit cost low.

Apple is a trademark of Apple Inc., no endorsement implied.
Yes, they do.
We don't recommend it because we think bumper cases look hideous...but if you must go to the dark side, they do fit with the Slip Stopper =)
