Sophomore spring was a pretty bad semester for me, mostly because I had a tendency to lose my Harvard ID. In the span of 3 months, I had somehow went through 3 different IDs, and so for my birthday several months later, my roommate decided to bless me with a Sinjimoru Stick-On Wallet. I never lost my Harvard ID again.
Whoever was the genius who came up with the idea of smartphone stick-on wallets has my eternal love, because it’s definitely a simple and ingeniously functional design. My personal story reveals its functional merits, because the stick-on wallet has allowed me to carry my ID, my Charlie Card, cash, even my credit cards when I need to run somewhere really quickly and can’t be bothered with lugging around my purse. And really, everyone now has a stick-on wallet on their phone because everyone knows that it is an easy way to make carrying things a lot less… well, sticky.
But personally, I like using the Sinjimoru stick-on wallet in particular—so much that when I had to switch a phone case, I bought this stick-on wallet again, instead of just using the myriad of free ones given to me by organizations—because of the fabric that it uses. Most other stick-on wallets use a plastic-like fabric that is quite expansive but eventually breaks under the pressure, especially if you pack a lot in (a lot of my friends go through several of these in one year). The Sinjimoru uses a breathable, elastic fabric, such that it is able to withstand the addition of various cards without a hitch and then can conform back to its previous shape for a lighter load. In that way, I find the Sinjimoru Stick-On Wallet notable in design because it shows how details can really push an already great design over the edge to become something even better.
