About this project
The Dizmio Wallet...
For the Dizmio wallet we wanted to create a wallet that was incredibly small and yet allows the user to carry as much cash/ cards as they want.
The Dizmio wallet:
- Has a slim, minimal, & functional design
- Allows the user to carry cash & cards
- Expands to be able to accommodate an insane amount of cards/ cash. We have tested it with up to 20 cards & it still had room for more!
- Helps protects against RFID skimming theft (watch our video below)
- Is very durable and lightweight
At its thinnest point the Dizmio wallet is only 2mm (0.079 inches) thick.
At the thickest point ( around the elastic strap) the Dizmio wallet is 6mm thick (0.24 inches).
The Design - Final
We went through countless prototypes until we settled on a Design that we believe fits all of our goals. The Dizmio wallet has a unique shape with very specific and functional grooves. The shape of the Dizmio wallet provides a pleasant user experience.
The images that you see are of the Dizmio wallet that you will receive. All images show the final production model of the Dizmio wallet.
The Dizmio wallet is composed of two aluminum plates & one elastic strap.
Rewards! Below are the rewards that we are offering.
Reward: Color Edition
The Dizmio wallet will be available in a few yet undetermined colors. We are letting our backers select the final colors! The final colors will be chosen based on popularity.
If you select this pledge please leave a comment and tell us what colors you would like to see.
The colored images (blue, orange, red) are simply mockups.
The "V" Shape
As you can see from the image above, when the Dizmio wallet opens it forms a "V" shape. The "V" shape helps keep the cards from falling out the bottom and it also helps push the cards up to make them easier to grab & sort through.
Quick Card Organizer
By placing your index finger at the top of the wallet & thumb at the bottom of the wallet, you can quickly organize/ straighten your cards located inside the plates.
Located on the upper left corner on both sides of the Dizmio wallet is a curved thumb groove. The thumb groove allows for easy removal of the outside credit card.
6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum Plates
We chose aircraft grade aluminum 6061 for the Dizmio Wallet because it allowed us to create a wallet that was incredibly thin, light, and strong. The aluminum plate has grooves on the side which keeps the elastic strap in place.
Each Aluminum plate is 1mm thick (0.039 inch), and is very solid and extremely difficult to bend. The aluminum plates are anodized to protect against corrosion & finger oil.
Aluminum Production Steps:
The aluminum plates undergo an intensive manufacturing process. First the aluminum plates are laser cut, they are then tumbled which helps smooth the edges, the aluminum after this is sand blasted, anodized, and lastly laser etched with our logo.
We have chosen a manufacture who upholds very high standards. We promise that none of the aluminum plates shipped will have any scratches or defects.
The Dizmio wallet has (1) one inch elastic strap. The elastic strap is composed of high quality rubber and polyester, which makes it machine washable.
The elastic strap is off-centered towards the bottom of the wallet. By placing the elastic strap closer to the bottom it makes the wallet easier to pull open from the top.
Stop RFID Skimming Theft
The Dizmio Wallet is made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. This material is able to block & interfere with RFID signals. Our wallet helps protect you from RFID skimming theft.
Help Us Achieve Our Goal
With your help we can produce our first batch of Dizmio aluminum wallets. We need to raise a minimum of $15,000 which will help cover our manufacturing costs and the minimum order quantities they set.
We have all of our manufacturers lined up. This means that once we receive the funds we are able to right away begin producing the Dizmio Wallets.
We expect to start shipping towards April. We want to get the wallets in your pockets as soon as possible and we will make every effort to do so!
Help us spread the word about the Dizmio wallet. Feel free to include and share these images on your blog, facebook, twitter, and anywhere else!

Risks and challenges
As with any Kickstarter project the main risk involved is meeting the shipping deadline. Our shipping time frame for the Dizmio Wallet is towards April. We believe that this is a realistic shipping date and are certain that we will have every order ready by this time.
Another potential risk is in the manufacturing of the wallet. We have very high standards and refuse to ship any wallets that are damaged or scratched. Due to this it might delay fulfillment.
We believe everything will go smoothly. We have a great team, along with an outstanding manufacturer. If any delays or mishaps happen, I will always be in communication with all Kickstarter backers by posting frequent updates.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
