The lack/love of money is the root of all evil

I’m not sure if you’ve come across Tyvek before but it’s a pretty cool material and is exactly what the Paperwallets are made of. It’s breathable but waterproof and is very strong and difficult to tear but easy to cut (with a knife or scissors). And it takes a screenprint very nicely too.

The guys from Paperwallet got in touch and asked if we’d like to design a couple of wallets for them so we thought we’d give it a shot. I already had the idea of using ‘the love of money is the root of all evil’ but then found the similar-but-kind-of-opposite quote  ‘the lack of money is the root of all evil’ (which i can find attributed to both George Bernard Shaw and Mark Twain – take your pick!) I can see sense in both these statements to some degree or other so surely the best stance should be to respect money as a necessary evil of which you need some – but not too much! And this is where the wallet comes in handy – to remind you of this from time to time…

We’ve got one more wallet in the pipeline so expect something new soon.

Cheers
