About the Product

Chomp Cards are a fresh take on the traditional greeting card. When opened, Chomp Cards surprisingly bite onto their recipient's hand! They are great to send to friends, family, coworkers, kids, and anyone who likes a good laugh. The patent pending design is recyclable, safe, and easy to use.

How the card works: 

  • After ordering online, you will receive your Chomp Card(s) in the mail.
  • Personalize your card and then mail it or deliver it in person.
  • After being delivered, the recipient is guided to open the card’s packaging.
  • Once opened, the card bites rapidly onto the hand of the recipient!
  • Laugh, and enjoy the card again and again!

Meet the Team

Trapdoor Designs is a brand new company created by Matt Callahan, Seth Einbinder, and Jordan Zipkin - three friends from college who live in Milwaukee, the Bay Area, and Montreal (respectively). Our mission is to create products that are silly, enjoyable, and cleverly designed.

Matt Callahan

Matt is our principal designer and inventor. Matt studied Sculpture, and Psychology, Neuroscience, and Philosophy (PNP) at Wash U, and has since grown into a terrific problem solver and inventor with professional experience working in a variety of design contexts. Matt likes reading about philosophy and neuroscience when he is not making art or adventuring outdoors.

Seth Einbinder

Seth is our head of strategy and operations. Seth studied history, economics and writing in college. He currently works for a customer experience analytics company solving tough technical challenges for his clients. Seth likes to travel, watch sports, spend time with friends, and run like the wind.

Jordan Zipkin

Jordan is our head of finance and analytics. He has worked as the head of operations for a Canadian publishing house, and is currently running analytics and M&A for a family of health care startups. Jordan likes climbing, thinking analytically, making puzzles, and listening to music with friends.

Risks and challenges

At Trapdoor Designs, our objective is to only bring products to market when they are truly ready. We have already spent months prototyping our design and working with local manufacturers to ensure feasibility.

After working together on projects for years, our team has gained experience handling all kinds of surprises. With our diverse skill sets and combined experience, we are confident that we can work through challenges as they arise. If our project is funded, the only surprise you should expect to receive is your very own Chomp Card in the mail.
