INTRODUCING THE FLIP WALLET 2.0
Last year we introduced Kickstarter to Arkin's minimal Flip Wallet, and this year we are taking the design to the next level. Upgraded features along with a blast of brightness bring functional individuality to your pocket.
Inspired by music, adventure and good friends, ARKIN create wallets and accessories that compliment a lifestyle filled with good times.
Gearmoose “The Flip Wallet provides twice the storage opportunities as other minimalist wallets, in a stylish, compact design.”
Hongkiat "The Flip wallet consists of 2 cardholder pockets that are folded and held in place with an elastic band."
Gadgeteer "Simple design and material are what attracted me to this wallet."
GBlog "Bringing it all together, the Minimum Fuss Wallet by ARKIN tucks everything in one perfect package."
MinimalWallet "It's made in the UK from elastic that is triple stitched for added strength."
TheGrommet "The Flip Wallet is a fuss free alternative to traditional bulky wallets and flimsy plastic card holders"
There have been a lot of minimal wallets on Kickstarter, and we mean ALOT! Some have been good, some really really bad and but mostly they have been a little bland.
Flip 2.0’s minimal design makes it perfect to use anywhere, a great everyday wallet, or just your weekend card holder.
From the start we really wanted to bring colour and creativity to the Flip Wallet. Our plan, and this new Kickstarter project is all about injecting some real personality into an object you use daily.
After months of researching, experimenting and testing we have found a way to add all the pattern and colour we can dream up to our wallets. This project is about raising the funds to purchase the equipment we need for short run sublimation printing, giving us the freedom to constantly change up our designs - minimal wallets with maximum colour!
Not only that, but we have upgraded the original Flip Wallet design to make it more robust and user friendly.
Honestly, we loved the experience so much last time that coming back for round two was a natural choice. Thanks to the backers of our previous project we have all the facilities ready to make the wallets. Adding colour however, is a fresh challenge and requires new materials and equipment. So that's why we are back, looking to fund the purchase of our new equipment.
Thanks to some lovely people we have been able to fully test out the machines we plan to purchase and use. Prototypes have been made, tested and fallen in love with and now its time to share our colour-filled dream with the wider world.
We believe that Kickstarter is the start of something bigger, and having this new equipment will give us the chance to constantly update our wallet range, leading to artist collaborations and a flow of fresh ideas.

Summer is almost here, and we are really feeling sunshine vibes! This season palm prints are seriously popular and its not hard to see why. Which Palm Wallet do you love most?
Can I still get the original Flip Wallet colours?
The simple answer is yes. You have two options if you would like to purchase one of the original Flip Wallet colours (subject to availability).
Option 1 - Add £14 per original wallet to your Kickstarter reward. Your original coloured wallet will ship with your Kickstarter reward once it is ready. You will be able to specify colours in the backer survey at the end of the project.
Option 2 - Head over to our website www.arkinsupply.com and order via our online shop for immediate dispatch.
We need to reach our £2000 goal to purchase the specialist printing equipment needed to create our new colour filled designs. This will give us the basic setup we need, and anything over will give us the opportunity to upgrade the system.
Last year I gave up trying to fit my old bulky wallet into my bag and pockets. In the search for the perfect replacement in which to keep my bank and travel cards safe, I designed the Flip Wallet. The small fuss free card holder became a Kickstarter success story surpassing it's initial target and going on to reach 700% funded.
We learnt a lot on that first campaign, mostly it was a smooth process and such a positive experience we have come back to do it all again…

Risks and challenges
We know that running a start up is a challenge, but having experience and having an organised team that's committed to fulfilling the rewards is our key to success. All we need is your support to make all this come to life. Let us put a bright Flip Wallet in your pocket and ship it worldwide.
International Postage Options
One of the major lessons we learnt through our previous Kickstarter project was that international postage can be a massive headache! While the vast majority of rewards successfully found their way to their respective backers, a few needed an extra helping hand to find their way.
International tracked postage is considerably more expensive so we are going to give you the option to pay for it or not.
UNTRACKED - If you choose this option your wallet will most likely reach you with no problems at all. We will have a proof of postage, but after that we will not be able to track your package and unfortunately will not be held accountable if it fails to reach you. This is the cheapest option.
TRACKED - If you choose this option you will be able to track your wallet as it makes it's way across the globe to you. If a delivery problem arises we will be able to see it and hopefully rectify it. Your wallet will most likely reach you with no problems at all. We will provide you with a Royal Mail tracking number and you can use their website to check the progress of your reward. This is the more expensive option.
If tracked postage is unavailable to your country we will refund you the difference.
All UK based postage will be sent Royal Mail 2nd Class. If you would like Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For please add £2.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
