Those who bank with Simple will be familiar with the great cardboard/rubber band wallet that comes with the card. After trying it, it’s hard to go back to a bulky leather billfold. Hence my sadness when the rubber band finally snapped a couple months ago.
So I made a new one. Bass wood cut to 99mm x 56mm, with 12mm wide inlets centered on the sides and a #84 rubber band.
On one side I’ve placed my ASU card, exposing the magnetic strip needed for key card access pads all over campus - studio, bike storage, etc. No need to pull out the card.
I tried returning to a billfold, but couldn’t do it. It’s significantly slimmer, lighter, and can be placed in my front pocket - potentially reducing loss or pickpocketing.
Have a few more ideas to add. Perhaps a v2 is down the road.
