Our Second Kickstarter
Two years ago, the Kickstarter community helped us, two sisters, Lucy and AJ, from the heart of England, realise our goal of creating the world's finest luxury t-shirts for videogamers. Our company has grown from that successful beginning into one of the UK's most prominent gaming fashion brands, worn worldwide. It's taken us 12 months to research and develop this beautiful wallet, simple, sophisticated, and with no compromises on quality. We are back to humbly ask for your help once again to create this exceptional product.
Gametee is a 100% Independent, Artist-Owned Business
We were founded on the principle that videogames are a meaningful art form. We treat our customers with love, respect, and kindness.
Every aspect of the creation and design of our wallet has been carefully and lovingly considered. Crafted with sincerity, passion, and care, we believe that it represents the finest wallet ever created for gamers.
Expertly handcrafted from smooth, Grade One luxury Italian leather, this traditional, sleek bifold wallet features the three-scales symbol, which was also the inspiration for one of gaming’s most iconic symbols. Simple, and distinctive.

Reliable RFID Protection as Standard
Traditional RFID fabrics are not dependable security for your cards, only being effective at a small range of frequencies. Our solution is to include an electromagnetic shield sleeve as standard with every Wallet. This ensures maximum available protection against 'skimming' and identity fraud.
The sleeve fits neatly into the wallet, and features a beautiful, Kickstarter exclusive design. A practical addition to every pocket.
A Powerful Emblem from Gaming Heritage and Japanese Culture
All gamers know the importance of this symbol to videogaming culture. But the emblem has a long and rich history, and is thousands of years old. In 1138 in medieval Japan, Tokimasa Hojo entered a cave on Enoshima Island, to pray that his descendants would be prosperous. The dragon god that dwelled in the cave heard his prayers and granted his wish, leaving behind three of his scales. This became the crest of the Hojo clan, and can be seen widely throughout Japan today.
The name for the symbol in Japanese is 三つ鱗, meaning 'Three Scales.'
The three-scales symbol is also present at the Zeniarai Benten shrine in Kamakura. It is believed that washing money in the waters of the shrine's spring will double it. We hope that your wallet brings you similar good luck and financial prosperity.
We have created a host of beautiful campaign exclusive rewards to accompany our wallet. Each pledge will bring us closer to our goal of crafting the world's finest Wallet for Videogamers.
Having previously completed a hugely successful Kickstarter project in which all rewards were delivered in less than four weeks, we feel certain that we are able to produce and ship premium quality rewards quickly and efficiently. We are a reliable, trustworthy independent company, based in England, experienced and qualified in manufacture and shipping.
This slim, beautiful, functional wallet is one of our proudest achievements, reflecting a year's research into the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. The RFID sleeve, which comes as standard with every wallet, offers maximum protection against fraud. We believe our work represents a pinnacle of taste, style, and durable luxury.
