The great thing about using my own resources eg adhesive vinyl, quite a unique and otherwise very expensive product (eg £90 per application) is that I can keep my costs low and raise more funds, instead of paying a third party a significant cut and having to raise the price because of this. Also, it makes each product totally unique as I've literally hand crafted each one. The joys of being an artist. Btw I already have about 100 metre of vinyl I got from somewhere.

But yeah for larger orders something like cafe press is good, I'd rather offer something artisan and cut out the middle man.

I'm looking into ads eg text links. I already monetized tapatalk and literally no one noticed so looking into it. I had thought it might be better to generate some automated revenue first before offering something like this, but for a few experimental orders, I could literally do this now.

I think we can offer something better than stickers for prizes.

I mean, I can literally cut about 50 grcade vinyls sometime this month only at material cost because I do the cutting myself and see how that goes.

It was an example. Once we get a few suggestions, we should then vote on the best ones and you can experiment with those.

This is pretty good :lol:

I also liked the logo Mocky did a while back.

Cool. Well let me know. I'll put together a few of my own ideas and develop the most popular ones on here. Then I'll probably make them to order.

My dad still does that printing job so I suppose I could always get posters etc printed if someone wanted one of those.

Great idea, I like the idea of meme lines with a logo, nice and simple.

I would definitely buy a few bits from it.

I have a GR mug at the moment which I had made but to have a place to get stuff would be awesome as am helping the community as well as getting cool stuff.

I would love a 3D Gr logo for my desk too.

I can see my buying far to much stuff already...

I could probably laser cut a GRcade logo from something sick like solid aluminium block, that wouldn't be cheap though lol, I could do a wood version. Or even cast the logo in bronze if anyone fancies spending about 50 quid.. :p

I was thinking resin type stuff in the colours, a bit like the android models you can get. But aluminium or vanished wood would be cool.

Hugo quotes is a great idea.

"just plain wrong"

"Universally abysmal" on a mug.

:lol: that would be fantastic.

I could even get a hand blown pint glass with it written or engraved in.

Mugs seem popular, I'll need to find a method for that as I can't do ceramics myself.
