V WALLET: ULTRA THIN MINIMALIST RFID BLOCKING
It all started when my mother in law had her credit card information stolen while at an art fair in Kansas City, MO (not a large city, thieves are everywhere). She did not lose her card or have it stolen by the thief. They simply acquired the name, credit card numbers and expiration date with a RFID scanner. These can be purchased for under 50 dollars online and now most smart phones can also receive this information with a free app. Since then we started the Protected Cards Brand so others can stop this from happening for a reasonable price with different products.
What We Need & What You Get
We need your help with getting the word out about this project and funding to purchase the inventory to be able to bring this to market at a reasonable price. We have been fully funded on Kickstarter so with this campaign we are taking additional pre orders and offering the same PERKS as we did on Kickstarter. With this we are offering the wallets starting below half the MSRP of 39.99-49.99. Please ask any question you may have about this project and we will answer them as soon a we can.
The V Wallet is a super slim minimalist RFID blocking wallet that can fit in your front pocket. Because of its minimalist design the V wallet will change how you carry your cards and cash. The V wallet is made with exquisite top grade genuine pebble leather. It has 8 card holding pockets and a center “V” pocket for cash (each side has 4 card holders).
Comes with or without a clear ID slot (ID slot V wallet has 4 card holding pockets on one side, 1 ID window pocket on the other side and a center “V” pocket for cash).
Currently offered in Black and Camel color but will offer in other colors if the stretch goals are reached.

Risks & Challenges
The only Risk or Challenge would be the time these will take to produce. Since we are not the manufactures of this product there may be some time differences than what we lay out in the process. We have been doing tons of research for a good factory to produce these wallets. We hope that there will be no issues with production. If for any reason we can not full fill our orders in the time that we determined we will absolutely keep all backer updated along the way.
