About this project
Over three years ago, Vinco started to bloom in my mind. At the age of fifteen, my curiosity got the better of me and I made my first wallet from a sheet of A3 paper. It took a lot of thinking and most importantly maths (I loved maths), to figure out how I could hold it together without getting up to find some glue.
After a couple of months when the wallet wore down I had to make another. This time Ibbé had the brainwave that I should shrink it to the more readily-available A4 size while still maintaining the functions, so using a week of calculations with Ibbé we did just that!
We made the most functional A4 wallet around!
The Vinco wallet has been perfected with you in mind from its early stages on my desk in 2010. It's perfectly crafted to look like a wallet but slimmer, more eco-friendly and minimal.
The Vinco wallet is made of card so if you don't like your wallet, if it has been written on or even if you want a change of colour you can pop it in the recycling and get on with making yourself another right away!
With virtually no cost to the environment, it's incredibly eco-friendly.
The Vinco wallet also offers two extra pockets not found in traditional wallets for easy access to those cards needed most.

Here at Vinco we've found that traditional wallets don't fit to everyone's needs so with that in mind, everyone can have a different wallet. We believe in simplicity so we made our guide as simple as possible for you.
We didn't just create a wallet, we created a notepad and a permanent University timetable, work timetable or shopping list which can be altered if you write with a pencil. Vinco has many uses. Using your own creativity, you can unlock those that aren't too apparent.
It caters to everyone.
Vinco is made of card, so you can easily dash through RFID scanners!
Vinco comes with one for everyone. Be unique and opt for the artist's touch or a colour of your choice. There are twenty in total, take your pick! (not yet, we'll send out a survey after the campaign ends)
We need help from you in order to get this product to your pocket. We seek those who can adapt to change, the ones that love creativity and those that love everything. Your support will help us bring this wallet revolution to the masses.
Your funding will help us develop an app for iOS and android so you can design the wallets on your phone and we can ship out a wallet to you, quickly, easily and best of all very low-cost.
We will use the funding to hire people to make the wallets by hand. But don't worry, we'll pick the finest of the lot who can make your wallet as perfect as can be.
Best of all, Vinco is designed to look nothing like a traditional wallet so potential thieves will be unaware of what this bundle of joy actually is. Vinco is a camouflage for your money. If they don't know what it is, chances are, they won't steal it!
We are Vinco. Two brothers.
One who made the idea and the other who made that idea a reality!
What we are giving you is the heart and soul of what took many years of perfection for us both as well as a lot of input from various others.

A great thanks from us here at Vinco!
Risks and challenges
We are going to hire people to make the wallets for us. In order to achieve the perfection and uniqueness we want, we are going to inspect each and every wallet before it is shipped!
That's why all wallets will be put together by a team, handpicked and overseen by us, working day and night hopped up on caffeine so you can get your wallet as soon as possible.
We don't expect any delays as the wallets are going to be made ϟsuperfastϟ by us and shipped super quickly to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
When the project ends, I'll send out a survey for all the types of paper you guys use.
I'll personally look for those sizes and change the guide so it works for you, your guide should accommodate the paper in your home country!
Your made Vinco wallet will be in A4, because it was born to be in A4!
