Hi Kickstarter!

Just in time for the holidays we have launched our Carbon FIber Money Clip Kickstarter 2.0! All orders will ship the 1st week of Dec!  We are excited to introduce new fabric patterns with Kickstarter pricing (more than 50% off retail). Handcrafted in San Diego, CA we proudly only use American sourced Carbon Fiber/Raw Materials to assure accountability in quality.

Our design philosophy combines:

So our products are:

After some hefty research, multiple failed attempts, and lots of head scratching we were able to construct three different money clip designs with three different fiber types that embodied our design philosophy and standard of quality

Our first successful design is The Classic. The Classic Carbon Fiber Money clip took multiple revisions before we figured out the carbon fiber type, fiber orientation, and the perfect resin to create a strong light weight carbon fiber composite with a beautiful surface finish throughout the design.

We were so impressed with ourselves we decided to make it again! Only this time we made it bigger, resulting in our second money clip, The Grand.

The C&C Clip is our third money clip, designed to keep your cards and cash separate. The development of this design was a bit more complicated than our previous design and it is our largest clip.

Why we used carbon fiber?

You're probably familiar with carbon fiber, you probably know its in all the fancy cars and that they use it in airplanes or maybe you're a serious cyclist with a carbon fiber bike frame you can lift with a finger. You know where and why its used but do you know why its expensive?

The difficulty with carbon fiber is not the shortage of material but the attention to detail needed to create a quality carbon fiber piece. Carbon fiber starts out as strands of fiber which are woven together to create a fabric which is typically combined with other material such as resin to create a composite.

Once you apply the resin to the fiber there's no turning back without compromising the strength. This typically leaves you with a lot of defective carbon fiber resulting in the high cost of production.

Where we come in! Our goal is to produce a high quality product that corresponds with an affordable price. The money raised from this Kickstarter will go towards manufacturing our carbon fiber products on a production scale.

This is our second Kickstarter launching carbon fiber money  clips. We have learned a ton from our first Kickstarter and we know what we are doing this time.We will have all products shipped out in Novemeber 2015.

At this time we don't see any risks or challenges, should they arise we will update our backers accordingly. We manufacture and process these ourselves, therefore we will be working hard to ensure you get a quality product ASAP!

Risks and challenges

This is our second time launching carbon fiber money clips. This time we are back with all new style money clips. We learned a lot from out first kickstarter, we know what we are doing and have perfected our process. We need your help to purchase materials in bulk and get these products to market.
