About this project
With hundreds of wallet designs out on the market, consumers are still...
- Carrying too many cards (pull out your wallet and grab the cards you use on a daily basis. You will be surprised by how many you really don’t use)
- Fumbling for their cards at the register
- Being exposed to data theft
These frustrations encouraged the development of a device that eliminated these problems and that just...Makes Life Simple. The solution is Spectre Wallets.
What is Spectre?
Spectre is a stainless steel, RFID blocking wallet that features an auto-ejecting credit card slot. With the slide of a tab, Spectre ejects your credit card(s) partially, allowing the card(s) to be swiped without them ever leaving the wallet. Spectre also features a leather pocket that secures up to 3 additional cards and/or cash. Spectre allows users to customize their wallet by offering a variety of leather colors and the option to have their initials stamped onto the leather.
Spectre is designed to Make Life Simple by reducing transaction times, eliminating bulk, preventing theft and giving you instant access to your most frequently used cards, with just one hand!

With a mission to make life simple, Spectre Wallets aims to reduce transaction times, eliminate bulk, prevent theft through RFID technology and give users instant access to their most frequently used card(s) with the world's first auto-ejecting wallet.
With the original concept formed in March of 2013, Spectre Wallets has underwent various redesigns, secured a patent and established relationships with businesses for production capabilities.
By using local expertise and craftsmanship, Spectre is manufactured in the United States, with a majoirty of its partners in the Dayton area! By doing so, Spectre can not only ensure its quality, but also help boost the local economy!
Over the past six months, Spectre has established a number of relationships with other businesses around the Dayton area.
A laser cutting facility based in Covington, Ohio. With years of expertise, Champion provides not only offers accurately cut parts, but also a fast turn around time and the capabilities to produce either 1 part or thousands! All laser cut pieces are deburred and polished to ensure the Spectre fits smoothly in your pocket.
A full turnkey specialist in Contract Packaging and Fulfillment services, whose clientele consisted of The Dollar Shave Club, will assemble, package, and ship the Spectre Wallets anywhere in the world!
Located in the greater Dayton area, Adapt-A-Pak will supply packaging and shipping materials for Spectre. Adapt-A-Pak's state of the art facility will allow for custom designing and mass production capabilities to meet Spectre's needs.
Dicke College of Business Administration: Ohio Northern University

Patent Status: Pending
University of Dayton Research Institute: Fastlane
Fastlane, a branch of the University of Dayton Research Institute, works with small and medium sized manufacturing companies to help them overcome obstacles to growth. With Fastlane’s knowledge and expertise, they assisted Spectre in overcoming supply chain and functionality problems to ensure a consumer ready product!
With a funding goal set at $35,000, a majority of the funds will go straight to production! Funds will be used towards production/laser cutting, deburring and polishing stainless to ensure smooth, rounded edges, leather, stainless steel springs, assembly (rivets, pins, labor) packaging and shipping. Remaining funds will be used to help promote/market Spectre Wallets. Below is an estimated cost breakdown.
Risks and challenges
There are risks and challenges to every project. While it is impossible for every project to go according to plan, Spectre has taken steps to combat delays and setbacks.
The current projected time for cutting, deburring and polishing materials is around 6-8 weeks. If demand is high or the laser cutting machines need maintenance, Spectre has other laser cutting shops on standby to help fulfill orders.
Material acquisition time is between 1-5 weeks depending on stock/supply. If supplies are out of stock, acquisition times will be pushed back an additional 2-3 weeks. I have other suppliers on hand if needed to combat delays
Assembly will be the slowest process in the production schedule. However, as more wallets are being assembled, assembly times will be reduced. Projected assembly time is 8-10 weeks for Backers on Kickstarter.
