Support the Artists
The artwork on the wallets and accessories brings personal and creative expression to your everyday accouterment. Our focus is to be a platform for the artist so get their art and names out there, while creating artistic accessories that are as comfortable as they are exciting. The best part of what Paperwallet does is finding new artists with something to say, and something to share.
Paperwallet supports the artists through the Paperwallet Artist and Affiliate Network. The artists earn money every time their wallet sells on Paperwallet.com and the artists and affiliate partners use links to promote the artists’ products through their own respective networks. If you would like to become an affiliate partner with Paperwallet, just get in touch we would love to start working with you!
If you have ideas, if you're an artist, or you just want to get in touch…let us know
Collaboration is really what Paperwallet is all about. Paperwallet works with artists, brands, institutions, and companies on collaborative efforts all over the creative space. Each collaboration tries to bring innovative product design and creative expression together.
Working with artists is something we do to create all Paperwallet designs, but many times we partner up with artists to promote a broader goal. Check out our recent collab with Ai Weiwei, a prominent Chinese activist, and one of today’s most important and controversial artists. With exhibitions in major art museums around the world, Weiwei’s art is centered around the need for free expression and deals directly with his experiences in mainland China. In creating two wallets, Weiwei hopes to raise awareness for his Free Expression campaign and raise money for activities in this arena.
We also connect with brands to connect our artists with other innovators making next-generation products. Check out our collab with Taiwanese design house, Bitplay, to create a modern twist (it’s awesome) to a classic lamp. These limited edition pieces are nearly sold out and only available in a handful of places. The lamps shades were designed by Paperwallet artists and printed on Tyvek®! Check them out here.
Companies with a focus on design like Cartoon Network and Shutterstock continue to work with to make sure their branding efforts stay effective and fresh, and we have worked with companies like these on dozens of designs that we make exclusively for them. You can’t get these limited pieces on paperwallet.com, but here are some images of these collabs.
