AWESOME GW2 DUCT TAPE WALLET


Hey everyone, Sienna here :) and I CANNOT WAIT to show you this wallet I made that is 100% Duct Tape. Yes, even the design and the letters :)

Here are the pictures:

The whole design

The middle of the design, how it looks when folded

The inside of the wallet with cards in it to proove they fit :D

The inside without cards, and yes, I know it looks like crap, but it was my first attempt :P

I'd show you the bill fold and the thinkness but the forums won't let me upload :( Let's just say the thickness with all if the cards and some cash in it is about as thick as half of a quarter, and with no cards or money, it's about as thick as 1/4 of a quarter.

If you'd like me to make you one I'd be happy to!
I'd have a price, though, as they are hard to make :P
-Prices may vary if I mess up a little bit lol

Smallet (Picture coming soon!): $5.00
Bi-Folds (picture coming soon!): $6.00
Tri-Folds: $8.00
If you'd like one, e-mail me at [email protected]

(YES THEY ARE HIGH QUALITY! Just wanted to clarify. I also cover the design in clear, durable, tape to make it last longer. They don't last forever, but they do last a while. I had one that lasted a year, but then my dog got a hold of it. Sorry, they are not dog proof :P)


Also, if you'd like a custom GW2 design, e-mail me a layout of the wallet you'd like(You can easily make one in MS Paint if you'd like. This is one of the good things about MS Paint, easy to make layouts with lol), with a description of what you'd like as well. (I want to make sure I give you what you want) The price may vary depending on design complexity. Thanks!

-Sienna :)

Looks good but I don't think duct tape would be the most professional thing I could pull out of my back pocket. I do wish you well though, very cool idea.

To everyone else, it's duct tape. Not very proffesional, but very nice, long-lasting, and I just think it looks epic :D

Are you sure you are able to make money from using the GW2 image? I know its only a small amount but ANET have their brand to protect.

I'll check with them :)

Since all I'm getting is haters, I'm no longer making these wallets.

^^^ Scratch that, I am if you want one :D

sorry but the wallets aren't worth the price you posted because of what they are made of along with the quality of product :/ was a cool idea anyway.

Very artistic yet functional use of duct tape!   It reminds me of the various duct tape Mythbuster's episodes :)

Made myself a duct tape wallet a few years ago - some parts are coming off now due to the tape I used being a bit old and losing it's stickiness.. but who cares, I can just repair it with duck tape and it'll look like new ;)

I don't see any problem with 'unprofessional' etc.. some people use leather, some keep their cards in a plastic case, duck tape works fine for me and compared to the size of my previous one, it's insanely light/thin.

More on topic - You've done a pretty nice job on the logo, I wouldn't have the patience to do it myself :)

Looks neat!

Although with how thin those letters are I'd be worried they'd come off. Do you have a sealant of some kind on it or a clear tape over it?

Yes, the whole design is covered with very strong, clear, packaging tape. And the places where white pieces of tape meet are also covered to prevent it from getting dirty :D

It's DUCT TAPE! Duck Brand, to be specific. Duct tape is pretty much thin, sticky, leather. Go buy a roll and see how durable they are. I also cover the design in clear tape. It's very high quality. The price is what it is because (a) duct tape is expensive (B) each one takes me hours to make and © The design is hard and takes me at least two hours. I cut very carefully, I don't want to sell someone a cruddy wallet!
