WARNING: Hundreds of comic books were harmed in the making of these products.
I'm Daena and I am the hands and home behind ReGeeked. In early 2011, I wanted a comic book wallet. But I wanted it to be made with real comic pages. And I wanted it to be laminated. But it should still be flexible. And I wanted it to hold all my cards and cash. And I wanted it to be well made without tape or glue. But I couldn't find one. Already having some amateur knowledge of fashion design and pattern making, I decided to craft it myself. And it worked! I still have that first wallet and now there are hundreds of ReGeeked comic book wallets all over the world.
WAIT, YOU USE ACTUAL REAL COMIC BOOK PAGES?!
Yes, everything is 100% genuine comic book pages. No photocopies or prints. Each product is tagged with the original publication date of the comic(s) used, if available and the date it was crafted.
HOW DURABLE ARE THESE? HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Most wallets will last 2-3+ years with normal daily usage. Because everything is laminated, they can withstand a minor spill or a bit of rain. While I would not recommend it, I know from personal experience it can survive at least two runs through a washing machine and will still be usable.
All wallets and accessories are created with genuine comic book pages and news print, making each a unique and one of a kind find. Each wallet is first cut from discarded or damaged comic books and layered with other recycled papers before being laminated by hand with a vinyl laminate. This technique provides protection for the comic pages and keeps the wallet durable while also maintaining the flexibility of paper. Luggage tags, ID holders, bookmarks, and cash envelopes are laminated by machine to give them more structure and help maintain the integrity of the piece. Any scrap pages are then used to create pins, magnets, and key chains to keep waste to a minimum and give as much new life as possible to what might previously be considered worthless. All wallets and larger accessories are tagged with the publication date of the comic(s) used when available and the date it was crafted.
