    I like the magnet and think I need two. I don't need the lapel pin becuase I could put one magnet on my car and stick the other directly to my clothing. It would adhere because of the metal plates that I wear duct taped to my body, underneath my shirt, mall Ninja Style.

    Hmmm - quite a lot of interest it seems.

    I sdid research getting some done before but as ever - relatively small orders mean higher costs.

    Not sure about the flag, much as I like including Old Glory in about anything. I'll think on that and see if anything works but chances are IMO it might detract from the impact of just the two strong colors.

    John - if you have some links to outfits that print these things, yes - do PM me, even if just for ref' right now.

    OK, I'll look in my links, I know a few places that I've seen that have these...prices ranged from just under $2 + shipping all the way to $7 plus shipping...these were for quantities between 1 and 100 if I recall correctly.

    I fiddled with this on and off today - redid the whole thing again in fact for various reasons and played around with flag aspects.

    An overlay of semi visible flag was one idea but somehow it really didn't work - too ''fussy''.

    So - what I did reckon worked fairly well was putting a flag up top - mirrored - either side of smilie. Therefore - posting that one for a comparison. People might say - but where is 9mm?! Well - it doesn't fit - my excuse is - it's hidden under the ribbon crossover

    The original was actually taken while it was on my truck - thus the background color etc. Shot a new pic off the truck for this attempt. Placed it on a sky just to have something as background.

    Yeah baby! That's what I'm talking about!

    If you need hard numbers before you think about producing them I'm good for $30-40 worth of product. I'd love ball caps, especially a couple in kid sizes for me runts.

    I will explore re magnets but ball caps etc - not so sure. My wife embroiders and finds this sorta detail translated onto a cap is not easy at all, even with high stitch density.

    Same might apply with pins too.

    Chris,

    Count me in on a small order also.

    Not trying to steal the thread, but any more rumblings about a CC logo for shirts or hats. There is a really nice shop right here behind where I work, I'd have no problem taking them an image and checking on pricing and qnty price breaks.

    I posted this in the other thread too.

    Initial exploration makes me think the cost will be too high. Unless I ordered 500, they are pricey. If I got just 100 then by time shipping etc factored in, and not making anything much myself - we'd be looking at minimum $4 each. I don't see anyone wanting to spend that much.

    Mike - no more rumblings on t-shirts etc. I think the main problem is similar to what I am saying on magnets - qty to cost limitations. Add to that, it is something extra for someone to have to take on and include time demands re shipping and general organization etc.

    Like so many things - if the market was predictable and guaranteed, at a high qty level then, not so much problem. I can't see any ideas here leading to even into three figure sales to be honest.
