    My duct tape wallet hasn't had the problems you described. I made sure I got all the edges very well though. I personally like duct tape wallets because you can do pretty much whatever you want with it.

    Try an outer layer of gaffer's tape next time. It sticks very well to duct tape, especially if you roll the duct tape so that some of the sticky side is facing out, and it's made to resist heat and moisture without getting all gooey. Cloth might be a more sure bet though. What about making a stencil of a Nep and sewing it on? (Not sure if stencil is the right term... I'm thinking layers of colored fabric in a collage, kind of like Matisse's later work.)

    I have only had one good wallet.
    It's hard to find one.
    I always buy a leather one though.

    My Swiss Army wallet rocks(swissgear), I've had it for over three years in my back pocket, it has more than enough places to put cc's, it also has an ID slot too... Something like 20$ at The Bay(a canadian department store). Best bang for my buck wallet-wise in years. Billabong make cool wallets that last long too. Check out sk8 shops...

    I'm with you there. Picked up a leather wallet with the chains on it and it hasn't worn out yet! I had removed the chains years ago....still get funny looks about the anarchy symbol on it at the checkout though
