Chipwallet DIY Recycled Wallet

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2017-04-06

Imagine if you could help the world and simplify your life. With the Chipwallet DIY Recycled Wallet, you can do just that. Arriving as a flat board, you assemble this wallet on your own. The Chipwallet comes with individual plates as well as a woven elastic band. Simply pop the plates out from the board, arrange, and pop the band in place. Additionally, the Chipwallet can hold all that you need. It comes with two cover plates and two inner plates as dividers. One plate is for your cash and another has cut-outs to hold your keys securely in place. In addition, the Chipwallet is 100% sustainable as it uses post-consumer recycled material. This material is typically found in shipping so it’s strong, durable, and feels great. Finally, even with a capacity of up to 12 cards, the Chipwallet remains superbly slim to minimize the way you carry.

So a $12 rubber band, eh?

Is there any update on when to expect the shipment over here in Europe?!

Review from Kickstarter
So far so good. Thumbs up.
After working out that the black stuff that I got on my hands was probably a result of laser cutting the cardboard (ash/soot whatever) I was fine and cleaned it up.
The cardboard is a little thinner than expected but it’s still reasonably hardy. I’m not sure about the longevity of the product but that’s why I bought two!
Maybe V.2 could have some consideration put into some sort of hardening properties?
The band seems to be holding up ok so far and I’m actually considering putting some short sticky tabs on my cards to make them easier to pull out when the rare occasion comes along that I actually need them.
Next step is to personalise the card faces and see if the ink stays and doesn’t bleed and rub off on everything.

I don't normally give poor feedback but I'm just so disappointed. Cardboard is thin and for some reason the edges leave black marks all over my hands. Requested a green band and got black. Elastic is of poor quality. Money slot isnt correct size. All the best but this is definitley not for me. Not even usable.

Hi mookmill! Cool name btw! By now you should have received yours, all colored bands are out. Please let us know if you have not received your reward.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kristen! We are sorry it did not meet your expectations. The next thickness up is nearly double the thickness, we decided for a lighter and slimmer thickness. The keys are meant to not sit flush. Once we get enough traction, we can try to order a non-standardized thickness that is a good compromise between the slim size and enough to accommodate standard keys! Thank you for backing us and let us know if you have any issues.

Hi Christi! It was a compromise to have the cash slot just a little undersized, if we made it bigger, the margin becomes thinner/less material around. However, since the production chip material is stronger than we originally specced, we can certainly make it fit the cash better! Thank you and enjoy!

Review from Kickstarter
Received mine the other day and honestly I'm a little disappointed. The cardboard is so thin- a standard house key is thicker than it- I'll have to combine 2 wallets into one to make it functional. Just seems like something that should have been thought of before manufacturing.

Review from Kickstarter
Just got mine yesterday (WA state). I'm curious why the money slot doesn't actually fit USD folded into fourths? They show it with USD folded in fourths but the truth of the matter the actual folds are outside of the cutout which thickens the wallet. I might have to take a razor to mine. Just seems like a huge oversight. Otherwise, I'm excited to finally have the wallet.

I’ll second TJR’s question, I’m in Australia and I know it doesn’t take this long to ship something out here. Have the coloured bands actually come through yet and been shipped?

Hard to believe it would take this long for cardboard and rubber bands.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi There! How much will these be retailing for please and where can I buy more? Also, alternate coloured bands. Why not do a rainbow colour band? Or maybe a rainbow coloured wallet? To either send messages to fill in the checkout queue or to show solidarity?

Original timeline says they'd be shipping on October, but update #6 ends with "Your Chipwallet should be in your hands soon!!!" - so are we ahead of schedule?

@TJR One per wallet.

In the survey you ask "What color bandS do you want for your Chipwallet(s)". How many band colours can you put there?

@Alekhya Thats a great idea, We will definitely keep it in mind for the future!

It would be awesome if someway you could waterproof the wallets.

@Tray Say if you had more money than could fit in the space provided for the cash plate, which would be quite a lot, it would still stay secure in the wallet.
Jonahdel
Review from Kickstarter
@Chipwallet both sounds like a good idea. They could be add-ons as well so we can get waterproofing (if they're not yet there).
Tray
Review from Kickstarter
Say if you had quite a few dollar bills more so than what could go into the plate would you be able to put them with your cards in between the plates without the risk of the money falling out?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Jennifer! Thanks! We love your ideas for the stretch goal, we had some ideas for an expansion pack, either a blank or other function specific plates like for quarters, SD cards, SIM cards. Maybe we can start with first stretch goal for the extra plates and a second one for the extra band colors idea. What do you all think?
Jenn Elliott
Review from Kickstarter
I decided to back the Chipwallet with the normal pledge amount, reaching your goal for funding. This is a neat idea, any ideas for stretch goals? Maybe plate "blanks", more band colors (I'm partial to magenta/hot pink), some kind of waterproofing of the chipboard? Congrats on the successful project, I'd never before been the backer to actually get a campaign to funded status!! :)

@Jonahdel Great Idea, we can definitely get a triple early bird going.
Jonahdel
Review from Kickstarter
@Chipwallet Company - So, my 2 brothers want to get in on this but there is no early bird for the triple. I'm on a early bird double right now and going to the triple looks less of a deal. Any chance on a triple early bird?

Thanks Jonahdel!
We did have a few ideas for templates but weren't sure which one to go with, so we are definelty looking to have more feedback.
Jonahdel
Review from Kickstarter
This is pretty cool. The only thing I could ask for is a digital template that I can use in Photoshop to design stickers and personalize the wallet.
