Miss Out on Backing Tiny Survival Guide and Card?
As my friend Creek Stewart says…“It's not IF—but WHEN.”
Every day, people like you (and me) are thrown into life and death situations without any warning. Unfortunately, folks die every day due to lack of knowledge, skill, or preparation. But you don’t have to...
Hi, my name is David. I'm the Founder of Ultimate Survival Tips (a popular survival blog and YouTube Channel with over 425,000 Subscribers). I'm also the Co-Host of The SURVIVAL SHOW Podcast, a Serial Entrepreneur, Outdoor Skills Instructor, Designer of the popular (Kickstarter-launched) MSK-1 Survival Knife, and a Former U.S. Marine.
The Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE is the fulfillment of a dream I had nearly 7 years ago, to design a rugged, compact, everyday carry, emergency reference guide that YOU and EVERYONE you Love (regardless of skill level) Can Use in TWO Distinct Ways:
#1 - As a PROACTIVE, Everyday Carry, Learning Tool - To help you train and prepare - BEFORE a disaster.
#2 - As a REACTIVE, Emergency Guide - To help you navigate a potentially life-threatening situation - DURING a crisis event.
So I asked my friend, Craig Caudill (Author of Extreme Wilderness Survival and Founder of Nature Reliance School) to help me develop this unique, "never been done before," everyday carry, micro-survival guide.
The Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE is patterned after our popular Ultimate Survival Challenge - Level 1 training course, and boils down over 35 hours of training to the essentials you need when things go bad!
“Think of it as a Life Insurance Policy in Your Pocket.”

Great Question… First, we selected a font that is highly readable even at smaller sizes. Then we experimented with various formats and layouts to organize the guide in a clear, logical, and systematic way.
Next, we spent nearly four months measuring every word… writing each line in the simplest, most concise, accurate and useful way to convey the most information possible.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, we knew each and every illustration needed to be clear and demonstrate tips, techniques and skills accurately, often without the aid of words. So essential illustrations were meticulously hand drawn using pen and ink.
UNIQUE PRINTING PROCESS
Using a special 3-row by 12-column folding process and high-resolution printing on special paper, we have been able to condense the equivalent of a book nearly 75 pages into a guide the footprint of a credit card… making Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE the first publication of its kind.
Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE is designed in the USA, using durable tear and weather-repelling, hybrid materials found in the world’s toughest wilderness maps
Add our Patent Pending, Made in the USA Tiny SURVIVAL CARD to the Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE.
Tiny SURVIVAL CARD Includes:
- Mini Knife / Spear Point / Signal Reflector
- Micro Finger Drill / Awl
- 3 Sewing Needles
- 2 Small Fishing Hooks
- 2 Medium Fishing Hooks
- 2 Double Finishing Hooks
- 1 Mini Button / Fishing Lure
- 2 Mini Gig / Harpoons
- Fine and Medium Hack Saw
- Mini Tweezers
- Magnet Base
Every Tiny SURVIVAL CARD is Made in the USA and is crafted from 0.025" thick, (USA origin) 302 stainless steel (which is known for it's strength and corrosion resistance). Every card comes on a magnetic base allowing you to pre-sharpen the micro knife and place it (and many of the other tools) back on the base for storage.
NOTE: The Tiny SURVIVAL Card Knife does NOT come pre-sharpened. We will show you how to do this (at home) once you receive your gear.
According to a recent FEMA survey, a majority of American adults DO NOT have an emergency plan, sufficient supplies, knowledge or the training needed to survive a major disaster. So, Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE is a great tool to help ANYONE be better prepared.
Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE is also perfect for folks who like to hike, camp, fish, hunt, backpack, travel, explore new wilderness or urban destinations. SO basically EVERYONE!
My heart is to get The Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE into YOUR hands... and into the hands of millions of folks around the globe who want to be better prepared for the inevitable emergency, crisis or disaster.
So please share this campaign with your family and friends.
By supporting this project you will enable us to fund our first large production run and you will be partnering with our team to begin the process of getting Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDES and Tiny SURVIVAL CARDS into the hands of people around the world.
THANK YOU for your encouragement and kind support!
And remember, BE PREPARED… Because You Never Know.
Risks and challenges
We have done our best to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project and realistically estimate delivery of your rewards - because, that's the FUN part. Everyone is bummed out when rewards are late, and we don’t want that to happen.
To dramatically reduce risk and meet our stated ship dates we have successfully completed a pre-production run of both the Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE and The Tiny SURVIVAL CARD with our manufacturers. Packaging and printers are set. And our team has already developed a system of packaging and shipping these items.
In the event that you all support this project "beyond our wildest dreams" all of our systems are completely scalable and are designed to meet almost any demand.
I (David) have spent over two decades in Corporate America as a marketing, business and product development professional. And this is not my first rodeo.
Leveraging my successes and learning from my past campaign, I am very confident we WILL not only manufacture and ship the rewards for this project but we will do it with excellence and on time.
One last thing... We are excited to announce that the Tiny SURVIVAL CARD has been registered with the United States Patent & Trademark Office and enjoys a Patent Pending status... and that the Tiny SURVIVAL GUIDE is registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.
