It seems like everyday we’re hearing about a hot new startup. ESPECIALLY here in Silicon Valley. But it’s not everyday that we come across one we think is this cool. (AND they’re using PunchTab!)
The concept: Artists and designers create and submit incredible designs, the FlyingFlips community votes on which designs they like best, the top-voted designs are then printed as flip-flops and sold in the online FlipFlop shop at FlyingFlips.com.
To make things just that much better, a second set of FlipFlops from EVERY pair sold is given to a person in need AND the artist also gets a percentage of sales generated from their winning designs.
(Seriously cool, right?!)
So basically, this is a crowd-driven site: a community for art & design, a platform for social change, and an opportunity for artists to get paid for doing what they love doing… They’re creating artist-designed FlipFlops that are produced and sold with a commitment to giving back.
Ivo Staiano and Paul Mon-Kau founded Vancouver-based FlyingFlips in 2011 and they’re loving their adventure. (Which is clear when you read their blog and website!)
Recently, FlyingFlips launched the FlyingFlips FlipFlop store and they chose PunchTab to run their giveaway, driving awareness and social sharing. (We’re proud to be their platform of choice.)
They told us that choosing Punctab to host their contest was a natural choice. (Warm fuzzies!)
“We love your platform, ease of use and analytic functionalities; we also appreciate the incredible support that you have given, and continue to give, us. Regarding integration, I don’t think you could have made the ux any easier, or to be frank, fool proof. Great work.” Kamil from FlyingFlips told us. (Thanks Kamil!)
So go check them out. Buy some flips and enter to win! We’ll get back to you with their results.
