About this project

Pull the clip off binder, and find your card. No hidden nooks for things to get lost in.

The durable ABS plastic protects your cards from damage such as scratches, bending, and cracks.

Binder sits comfortable and compact in your pocket. You’ll hardly notice it. Due to its clever design, it won’t damage your clothing or the objects around it.

Binder is unaffected by water or sweat. Depending on what you keep in it, Binder is virtually waterproof.

Binder will hold any card, business card, note, ticket, or currency. Anything you can fold binder will hold.

Binder compacts currency and notes creating a uniform bundle that won’t shift in your pocket.

Binder came from my friend and my search for a better, thinner, and easier wallet. Expensive wallets, innovative wallets, well made wallets: none of them quite met the requirements. The leather would stretch, the Velcro was unfortunate, and the elastic would fatigue. Then someone suggested the office clip. It worked great! However, there were some small flaws, it didn’t protect the cards, it looked cheap, and the clip got stuck in pockets. So we set out to fix it. Through months of refinement, testing, CNC time, and tons of resin; Binder ended up as the product you see today.

I have production set up ready to go, and am just waiting on the funds to purchase the first round of tooling. We have sourced the finest materials available and the wallet will be made in USA.

Lining up thousands of orders and shipping them successfully is a daunting task, but I have partners ready to help out if the load is larger than expected.

I am a design engineer based in Bellingham Washington. I’ve worked in renewables, design, and the chemical industry. I’ve really enjoyed designing this. I had an eighty-dollar leather wallet that I loved aside from its tendency to drop my ID on the floor occasionally. Binder has completely replaced it. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I do.
