Chicago fan buttons...
« on: July 23, 2009, 04:20:22 PM »
Hey all...

I am considering producing a very small limited edition run of buttons for the gang in Chicago since so many of us on this board are going.

4 designs... (Bono Fan, Edge Fan, Adam Fan and Larry Fan) with full colour pics.

I need to see if there's enough interest for me to go through with it and see how many I should do... they are going to cost me roughly 48c Canadian to produce each button with a setup fee for each design so I'd probably look for 50c/$1 for each one just to cover the cost of production/setup and I'd eat the rest for shipping etc.. I wouldn't be shipping them individually and would be giving them out in the GA line/on Friday night in Chicago before the gig as I hope a bunch of us will have the chance to meet up.

Interested?  Post here and I will get the project underway if enough peeps are interested!

EDITED: Rethought this, and instead of separating to guy/girl for 8 designs will just use "fan" for 4 designs... that way you can express that love either way you want to with the same button... :D

Ah here is your thread EF ! Yes I want a button! If you love all the boys equally can you possibly get one with the band on them or must I choose?

Well, this plan is definitely in motion, I've had a big enough response through PMs.  I will give you all some graphics to look at and more info to follow... ;)

Hi EF !  No entire band buttons? If not I will let you know which one I will choose. Tough decision!

Oh no... you've got to PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE, baby.  I pretty much started this whole project with the sole goal of getting you to "pick one", already.   ;D

It's like flipping a coin in private, if you flip it again after the first time, you already knew the answer before you bothered...  ;)

Hey SG, why not get one of each? That's what I want to do. That way, no matter where I end up in GA, I'll have a button to cover that band member. ;D Though it'd be pretty hard to end up with Larry, eh? ::)

I can't play favorites.
So in other words, 4 for me, please!

Thanks.

Birdlover

Ooops, forgot about my daughter. Could I buy 2 of each or is that being greedy?
