    I find these creations strangely charming.

    I'm saying. Should have posted only the first two pics. Once we started wading into Steelers purse territory, we had trouble on our hands...

    Those wallets look surprisingly intricate. Do you just weave little tape mats and tape those together again to make the bigger and folding items? Very cool in any way.

    The main part of the wallet is made from one woven mat. I fold that piece to make both sides of the wallet and the inside pocket. Then the card pockets are added.

    WTF?

    Out of all the noobs who post stupid shit in mc day in and day out to the tune of "help me pick out a double fucking monk" I'm surprised you all would pile so much shit on this poor guy.

    Yea, not igent approved goods but hardly deserved of the types of comments above. 'upset' "horrible"??

    All from n00bs themselves who've been here <a few months.

    OP: carry on, admire your creativity but Prolly not the best forum to sell these . don't let the clown posse get you down.

    I think it's great that you were able to create something like this out of tape, it definitely shows a "unique" artistic skill. Personally, I wouldn't ever have a need for one of these, and unfortunately this is not the type of product that will be received well around here.

    +1 But IMHO, better use/misuse of duct tape. [​IMG]

    Thank you very much.

    I really didn't come here to try to sell but more to get ideas and opinions. I hoped to get some ideas and see what I could do. Thought it would be funny to get ideas and post pics of my attempt. I realize this is a tough crowd and appreciate the feedback.

    OP is advertising his stuff in a forum about fine men's clothing. This approximates a direct violation of forum rules, contributes to the runoff of high quality posters, and wastes bandwidth. Granted, OP's subsequent postings make him appear to be a nice guy, but a mere cursory review of the forum would have at least prepared the OP for the onslaught if not outright convinced him it would be a bad idea to post in the first place. Also, they are made of duct tape. Duct tape.

    Why should he have to do a mere cursory review of the forum, when you can't even do a mere cursory review of this thread?

    OP - good on ya. I appreciate creativity and talent whenever I see it.

    Sorry, didn't know post would get people so upset. Duct tape/duck tape, I use both and never really gave it much thought. The tape I use is made by the company "duck tape brand". Regardless of your opinion on what word should be used, these are made with Duck Tape. I know they are not perfect and can look cheap. They are made with tape. If anyone has any ideas, post pics

    Don't worry, this is a tough crowd. Unless your product is made by Italians with names we can't pronounce, English shoemakers, or French leather makers specializing in green leather, all of which retails for a lot more than they are worth, but are always purchased at a significant discount, you won't get much traction here.

    I would imagine that the purse forum would a great marketplace for you. Good luck!

    I understand OP specified that the brand of Duct Tape is actually Duck Tape. My comment stands independent of that, as a plea to good tastes everywhere.

    C'mon, if duct/duck tape wallets bearing West Virginia logos aren't cannon fodder on a forum like this, I am at a loss for what is - aside from my terrible fits.

    OP, again, you seem like a really nice guy, and my (alarmingly singular) appraisal of your handiwork shouldn't dissuade you from making them to your heart's content. They are definitely interesting.

    If you can't Duck it, fuck it.

    Those look like they take much time to make. I bet if you switched to NASCAR themes, as opposed to NFL themes, you could make a killing.

    My wife purchased a coin purse made using a similar technique at Chichen Itza. Instead of duct tape, the local Mayans use the labels from discarded soda and water bottles.

    I appreciate seeing unexpected/unique materials being used for accessories, especially when one can't instantly recognize what that material is. Works perfectly for a wallet, which to me really should speak to the owner's individuality.

    Despite this, OP, your creative use of duct tape for wallets, etc would probably be better appreciated in the SW&D section, where experimentation is generally better-tolerated.
