What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

In 2016 we came to you with an innovative smart access wallet, the Disc Wallet which gave you instant access to your everyday carry items.

Thanks to your incredible support we were successfully funded and launched our brand online. Backers from all around the world were able to make their everyday carry lives more accessible. So thank you everyone.

Now we're back in 2017 with our second product, the Disc Passport Wallet. 

This time fueled by the frustrations shared by our previous backers in carrying around their passports and associated items whilst in the airport and in their travels and being unable to find a carry solution that actually works.

We understood your frustrations and went back to the drawing board to create the ultimate minimalist passport wallet with all the features you need to make your travels easier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our products are made to inspire the everyday modern world looking for accessibility and freedom in their daily essentials.

Our materials are ethically sourced, we support our local manufacturing partners and focus on using premium eco-leather of the highest quality and durability to last a lifetime.

Full-grain leather is a premium grade hide which showcases the leather's natural grain and texture. 

An appreciated aspect of full-grain leather is the ease of maintenance and the consequential textural beauty on the surface, developed over time and continued use. 

The result is a super soft, supple canvas that fits perfectly in your hands ready for your travels around the world.

  

 

 

 

 

                                 

 

 

                                           

 

                                            

                                            

 

              

Disc Passport Wallet was designed after hearing from our previous backers, seasoned travellers and the everyday carry community.

We completed an intensive 6 month-long prototyping process with consistent stages of testing feedback, iterations to perfect the Disc Passport Wallet as we move into production.

 

 

 

This is our second Kickstarter. We successfully launched our first Kickstarter last year and fulfilled products to happy backers from all around the world.

We have worked with the top manufacturers, leather suppliers, and shipping partners to help us manufacture our first Kickstarter and we are partnering up again with them for the Disc Passport Wallet. 

We trust them and we learned how to work with them to achieve the best results. 

The next step is to place the order for materials and start the first production run of the passport wallets.

We met our targets from our prior campaign and are confident in our planning to deliver in time again.

Please review our Production Schedule below:

 

We have already completed and successfully fulfilled the original Disc Wallet and we are currently manufacturing our 2nd Kickstarter for the Disc Passport Wallet.

Here is what backers from our previous campaign had to say about our first product:

We are confident in our team, our products, our fulfillment partners and are looking forward to creating our second product, the Disc Passport Wallet for you.

 

We are Disc Wallets an independent design studio based in London UK. 

Inspired by the design principles of minimalism, simplism and exploration, we are passionate about creating products with the top craftsmanship and never compromise on quality.

All our products are made in-house meaning we re-invest everything back into manufacturing and materials whilst offering savings to you as our backers.

We always challenge the status quo and will continue to listen, evolve and bring out exciting products in the pipeline. 

We need your support to launch the Disc Passport Wallet. We are raising funding for manufacturing, packaging and logistics.

We have a small team with big ambitions and want to say thankyou for giving us the opportunity to create the Disc Passport Wallet for you.

 

  

Our products are covered by a 2 year warranty from the day they were bought when used under normal conditions and for the purpose intended. 

We use materials of the highest quality our products are durable for a lifetime.

Try not to excessively pack with more cards than recommended as it defeats the purpose of the minimalist travel wallet. 

 

 

 

 

      

Launching new product lines on Kickstarter allows us to go directly to you, the customer. It's a win-win for everyone. 

You get new products earlier and at a better rate than anyone else (and you get to support our team/mission), and we get to raise funds before production so that we have a better understanding of sales and demand before we get started.

We have open channels to easily connect with you. This includes our website, email, Instagram and Facebook. We actively listen, respond, and refine our products. 

You're part of the process, we're excited to see where we take this - together. Thank you for joining us on our journey.  

— The Disc Wallets Team

Risks and challenges

All projects have their challenges. Because the Disc Passport Wallet will be made 100% in-house we have full control of the high quality of the work performed. This allows us to keep prices down and have control over the processes involved.

Additionally, we successfully launched and delivered the Disc Wallet in our first campaign in 2016.

We've found that having a working prototype is not enough. In order to accurately calculate manufacturing time, a production run is needed.

We've done this and planned accordingly including surveys and logistical partners. If volume overwhelms us, we have a professional post-production team on standby.

Our personal promise is to run everything as streamlined as possible and also ahead of schedule.

All profits we make are re-invested back into our business and will go into the development of our next project which is well on its way so watch this space!
