Flash Friday: Fast Money

Happy Flash Friday everyone! We’re going a little image heavy with today’s post. I’ve mentioned before how sometimes I have topics for Flash Friday planned out for weeks in advance and sometimes I just stumble onto a topic that morning. Today is one of those later situations. You see, my wallet is dying. It’s served me well over the years. The Guinness logo on the front is almost unrecognizable it has seen so much wear and tear. It is time for a new wallet, so I figured it was time to get a Flash wallet. Luckily there are a lot of Flash themed wallets out there to choose from.

The Vintage Flash wallet is really nice looking. It is a little yellow for my own personal tastes. I’ve mentioned in the past how I prefer symbols over actual characters on my Flash merchandise and that hasn’t changed. It is a good looking wallet; it has that retro look that a lot of people like. In the end it wasn’t the one for me.

The Boundless Flash wallet is more my style. Sure it is a simple design, but it’s striking. I was really getting ready to order this one and go on with the rest of my morning. The more I thought about the lightning tips sticking off the wallet the more I disliked it though. I can easily imagine them catching on things or getting bent out of shape. Reluctantly, I passed on this one too.

Hahahaha. No. No offense to anyone who currently has this wallet, or is looking at the picture and wants to order one, but it’s not for me. Next wallet.

If you’re looking for a more recent Flash image, this wallet is wrapped with the image from the first issue of Barry’s first return. The one before the new 52. I know, we’ve had so many relaunches lately that I get confused too. Anyway, if you want a modern looking Flash who doesn’t have a chinstrap and a million lines on his uniform this would be a great wallet for you.

I’m calling this one the Graffiti wallet. I won’t lie, this one made me pause too. It has a lot of good things going for it. The character isn’t on it, only the symbol. The wallet is mostly black. I even like the paint drippy logo. It ended up being just a little too much going on though. I’m good with one logo; I don’t need to see the lightning bolt six times on each side.

What is this? Could it be? A simple red wallet with the classic Flash symbol placed in the middle. I know some people might find this one boring, but it was exactly what I was looking for. The wallet is made out of tyvek, which will supposedly make it hard to tear or rip. Regardless of the materials, I’ve already ordered this one. Give me a week or two and I’ll let you know if it was worth all the trouble it took to find the best one.


  1. Ive got the new pre-52 relaunch Flash wallet. Fantasticaly light.

  2. Ben, that's fantastic to hear. The one I ordered is the same material as that one.

  3. I actually have and use that last one listed. The solid red(on the outside anyway) Tyvek Wallet. It is super lightweight and you barely know it's in your pocket. It's made out of the same materials some of the mailers the post office uses for express or priority mailing.
