Gigs 2 Go is a credit-card-sized pack of USB flash drives, with "Tear-and -Share" technology. Simply tear off a tab when you need to quickly share files on-the-go. Gigs 2 Go is made from 100% post-consumer molded paper pulp. In December 2013 we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for production, and we reached our goal and began production in January 2014. Check out http://gigs2goUSB.com to order. Read Less

GIGS 2 GO™
Portable "Tear-and-Share" Storage
Made from molded paper pulp, this inexpensive, credit-card-sized data pack is a fast, easy way to share large files. 
 
Gigs 2 Go started as a blue-sky concept, which we shared through our Behance portfolio. But thanks to lots of great feedback and a successful Kickstarter campaign, we are excited to have Gigs 2 Go in production! You can get yours HERE.
When you need to share files on-the-go, simply tear off a tab from the GIGS.2.GO pack. Each tab is a tiny thumb drive. Because GIGS.2.GO is inexpensive and made from renewable materials, you can feel comfortable leaving the tabs behind. And you've still got more tabs, ready when you need them.
 
The molded paper pulp enclosure is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. It's renewable, biodegradable, lightweight, cheap, and durable enough to ensure that each tab should last for many uses.
The Gigs 2 Go pack has four tear-off tabs. Each tab is a tiny thumb drive.
The Gigs 2 Go pack is about the size of a credit card.
Because Gigs 2 Go is made of paper, it's easy to write on the tabs.

Handmaking early prototypes
The Gigs 2 Go package is made from post-consumer cardboard and a reusable rubber band.
Ready for Production: In the initial design stages of this project we have been approached by several manufacturers who wanted to work with us in making Gigs 2 Go a reality. After a thorough evaluation we have chosen CustomUSB, a Chicago-based custom flash drive manufacturer who makes custom products for Harley-Davidson, Mattel, and HBO. Together, we've tested several rounds of prototypes, perfected the paper pulp enclosure to make sure it is durable and the tabs tear properly, and that the electronics are robust and secure.  The design is finalized and we are ready to begin production.
 
Kickstarter Campaign: (updated) In December 2013, we launched a Kickstarter campaign to make Gigs 2 Go a reality. We reached our goal, thanks in part to the Behance community, and now we are starting production of Gigs 2 Go!  Gigs 2 Go is now available.
