2nd Amendment Magnet Ribbons, Pre-Order Now

THR members, we are ready to begin accepting orders for our 2nd Amendment Magnet Ribbons (see this thread (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=102848)).

After compiling the votes we have decided to start with 250 each of designs 1 & 2 that GOT designed for us. This will be silver ribbon with dark silver edge and black (or blue?) print.

*** Late flash - several people, including our designer GOT, have suggested BLUE print instead of BLACK print. I like this idea, so as you order please include a vote on whether you want them printed BLUE or BLACK. We will only order them one way, majority vote wins on this one. ***

Due to the costs involved, we are not going to place the order for three weeks. During this time we will accept 'definite orders' at a reduced price. After we place the order the price will go up. Payment is not due until product is ready to ship.

The pricing structure is:

Until order date of October 22nd, 2004 - $2.40 each ribbon magnet plus shipping of $1.00 per 10 (or fewer)

After order date each magnet will be $5.00 plus $2.00 shipping per 10.

The problem is that it is going to cost $1,773.00 to order and distribute 500 of these ribbon magnets, and so far only 125 have been spoken for. We are not able to afford to risk this much money without some assurance the expenditure can be recouped. If this offends anyone, feel free to suggest an alternative method of financing this venture.

If anyone can get bulk orders from gun shops, etc., then we will be happy to discount for larger quantities even after the order date.

You may e-mail David Row (THR member dav) at davrow@san.rr.com (mailto:davrow@san.rr.com) to place a definite order, or you may list it here. I will tally the results and present them in this thread.

You can also check our 2nd Amendment Ribbons website at davrow.us (http://davrow.us) where we will offer on-line ordering in the near future.

10 of #1
10 of #2

Both blue.

Just so I understand this... Its advantageous to place the order BEFORE October 22 as its only $2.40/magnet. In other words I pay $50 ($48 plus $2 for shipping for 20 magnets). If I order after October 22, I'll have to pay $102 ($50 plus $2 shipping). Is this right?

I'm going to visit some local gun shops and see if I can get more orders so my total may increase.

dav
September 30, 2004, 03:17 PM
GOT, yes you understand correctly, but again if the orders are large enough after the 22nd then the price can be discounted.

Everybody, your request on this thread reserves the quantity you ask for at the lower price. We haven't setup to receive payments yet, so we'll let you know closer to the actual order date where to do that.

BLUE is winning so far. Hope mattz357 doesn't get to upset with me... he wants BLACK. heh heh :uhoh:

Is this for the original "Patriot Blue" or the navy blue in GOT's design? The patriot blue does stand out pretty well now that I look at it again.

GOT, can we see them in "patriot blue" for a reference? Thanks!

GOT
September 30, 2004, 08:15 PM
Here is "Patriot Blue": IMHO the printed version of this patriot blue won't look as majestic as the navy blue. The NAVY BLUE is going to look nice and dark from far way and then when you get close the navy blue color will become apparent and will look quite nice I think (and the silvery look of the ribbon is more enhanced with the darker navy blue). But like you say, what majority wants :)

I won't be disappointed with any of the three colors. With any luck, we'll have them in time for Christmas, one of these would make a great addition to the 686 I got for my dad.

oldfella
September 30, 2004, 08:27 PM
Hard to explain - I like them both... the Patriot Blue is "softer", nice; but the Navy Blue has a more "serious" tone to it... do I make any sense?

GOT
September 30, 2004, 08:32 PM
Makes sense to me. Like the difference between a light blue day suit compared to a dark blue business suit. The guy wearing a dark blue suit always seems to have more authority and presence.

The transparency should work. Sometimes if you simply copy the image, you will lose the transparency (the alpha channel... or something like that). In that case save the image and THEN open up in whatever app you're using.

GOT
October 1, 2004, 08:36 PM
Oh and Dav, you might want to mention that the "ribbon shape" is a design by MagnetAmerica.com. I'm only using MagnetAmerica.com's ribbon design becuase its for their ribbon-magnets anyway.

If people want a "copyright" free image then I could whip one up for whatever use they want.

October 3, 2004, 08:45 AM
dav, NOT including those you listed in your original thread, or those that said "I'll take x amount of whichever," we have 164 orders for #2 and 69 for #1 at this point. Overwhelmingly, the preference is blue. Given those numbers, I'd like to propose that all of us #1 voters consider the fact that if we could accept #2 instead, we could order 500 of #2 and 0 of #1, making the price cheaper for everyone. Food for thought.

oldfella
October 3, 2004, 09:08 AM
I second that - most every one says they'll take blue or which ever is agreed upon... lets go with Mattz suggestion and be done with it.

TennTucker, I thought someone would steal the pink ribbon I got for my wife too, but it has remained on her trunk lid for several months. What mildly concerns me is our midwest winter weather. Salt, ice and water may not be friendly either to keeping it on or keeping it nice.

I'll still take a total of 20.

mattz357
October 3, 2004, 10:06 PM
NoHarm, as of right now it is scheduled as a one time buy. The minimum order is 250, which is the most prohibitive factor. Do you have a gun shop or do you plan on selling them at gun shows? I hope that they somehow "make it big." I don't think many forum members are from central IL, but if I ever see someone with one of these on their car I'll honk and wave like crazy. dav, it looks like we may sell out of these earlier than we thought!

GOT
October 3, 2004, 10:23 PM
I hope we get enough requests that we can have both design #1 and #2 printed inexpensively. I like them both.

I bet if these ribbons are popular enough that MagnetAmerica.com will sell them themselves as well. They already sell most of the other ribbon designs individually.

oldfella
October 3, 2004, 10:46 PM
order 500 of each #1 and #2.... I bet they will sell quickly. We can ask folks on other gun boards to see if we can move them.

mattz357
October 3, 2004, 11:00 PM
I posted a link to the original thread on Glocktalk, S&W Forum, and SIGforum and didn't get much support. Several of these sites have links to the order page and still not much support. I think relying on other forums would be a bad idea, but someone like NoHarmNoFAL may help out quite a bit.

GOT
October 3, 2004, 11:12 PM
I posted a link on several other forums as well. A couple of people have responded positively. I'm working on getting some local shops to put in a request, as I would like to order more. If we wind up with a surplus I will take a bunch of them. One of my brothers is pro-gun/2nd Amendment and I bet he could move several of them too (lives in Arizona).

Someone sugested to me that I should tell the NRA about the ribbons (I have no idea how to do that). What about GOA and SAF? Do we want to tell those orgs about this?

mattz357
October 3, 2004, 11:21 PM
I can't speak for dav, but I think telling other organizations is a great idea! They are likely to order large quantities, so that should make shipping easier on dav, and they will also hopefully get the magnets to reach farther and to more people.

GOT
October 4, 2004, 12:10 AM
OK, I just emailed several gun-rights and 2nd-amendment rights sites. Lets see what happens (is this a grass roots adventure?).

Hey Dav, you might want to update the ribbon images on your site (at http://davrow.us/ ). I sent out a link to your site and this thread with all the emails.

Just to keep everyone posted (and since SkyDaver asked...)

Currently we have 59 people ordering, 221 of design #1 & 272 of design #2 for a total of 493 ribbons!

Obviously, I need to increase our order before we've even received any. The price will be coming down from the $2.40 previously posted, but we won't know the new price until I've had a chance to talk to our printers.

Thanks to all for pre-ordering so we could make a valid estimate of demand. More news soon.

Everybody:
It appears that there may be a slight problem with the light gray background (don't know for sure during the weekend). However in light of that, to increase the contrast of the text-to-background-color there needs to be a white border placed around the text. This actually increases readability above and beyond the light gray versions.

Below is more refined version of what the final product will look like (based upon a proof from MagnetAmerica.com and including the white border). For scale reference, this image is 50% the size of what the actual ribbon will be.

If people don't like the white border then we can insist on that the lighter gray coloring. Its just according to the proof from MagnetAmerica they made the gray coloring a lot darker than I did (just trying to prepare for the case that we may have to use a darker color for the ribbon).

What do you all think?

October 10, 2004, 02:52 PM
Matt - Dav - GOT Over 500 are already spoken for... if you order 1,000 of the #2 dark, they will all be gone within a month after you receive them.

GOT
October 10, 2004, 06:44 PM
This great! If we order 500 the price drops to $1.90/magnet, and if we order 1000 the price is $1.50/magnet, right?

Cacique500 the actual size will be approximately 8 x 3.9 inches. They are the same size as all those popular yellow "Support Our Troops" magnet ribbons (MagnetAmerica.com prints those to). I guess the size gets all messed up depending on what kind, size and settings of the computer monitor one has.

Just so everyone knows, the darker gray color is from MagnetAmerica's proof. We specified a lighter gray (for better contrast and readability). So until we talk to them tomorrow we won't know why they made it so dark. It could be that they made a mistake. It could be that the metallic color I talked to them about, figures out to be that dark when they try to represent it on a light-emitting medium (a computer monitor). I don't know yet.

The problem arises when we have dark text AND a dark background. Either the text must be dark and the background light OR the text light and the background dark. If they are too close in value of light -vs- dark, then the readability will be hindered and we don't want that for an item that will go on a car. It would be fine for a poster where people will stand in front of for several seconds. But for a moving medium (your car) the contrast must be emphasized for quick recognition.

I'm submitting a "change diagram" on the proof for MagnetAmerica.com to correct several minor details. Then we will get another proof (dav gets the proof since the project is in his name), correct or accept it and then they print.

oldfella
October 10, 2004, 08:05 PM
I have a slightly different take, or opinion on the purpose of the ribbon; it is to be recognized as a cause...its readability is secondary. Most ribbons out there are recognized/identified by their color, not by what they say on them. No matter the color, it is most difficult to read anything that sized on the fly. The message on the ribbon, more often than not, is read as we walk by while the car is parked or stopped, or when the car in front of us is waiting at a stop light/sign. After a while, our ribbon will be recognized by its color, because they have read its message before, when standing still. Do I make any sense?

GOT
October 10, 2004, 09:02 PM
Yes, makes sense to me, and good point:cool: I was getting to where I couldn't see the forest through the trees, heh.

The other day I thought I saw a gray ribbon on some black Chevy truck (and just about panicked, thinking the color was already used). So I made my way though traffic to catch up with that truck. When I got close enought to figure out what it was I saw that it was a POW/MIA black ribbon... whew. Great to see it though.

mattz357
October 10, 2004, 09:23 PM
While the color will eventually symbolize our cause, it will take time for the correlation to occur. I would guess that over a million of those yellow ribbons are out there, in addition to the fact that yellow is already known to symbolize military support, and since we don't have those numbers we need visibility/readability or the correlation will never develop. With any luck, and if we do our part, silver will be as familiar yellow some day.

oldfella
October 10, 2004, 09:32 PM
One thing for sure, all your efforts and hard work - Matt, Dav, GOT, will not go unnoticed; soon these ribbons will be seen by a whole bunch of people... and will not take long before their symbol becomes part of the gunners' landscape. Thanks, guys.

Checking back in . . .

After some time (and experimentation, see below) version #1 is gowing on me. Put me down for 5, now, maybe more later. I'd like to show them at some gun shops to see if they have any interest in quanities, but want to be able to show them the real thing.


I still like the "Restore 2nd Amendment Rights" or "Second Amendment Rights" better. Over the weekend, I made one that looked OK (but low resolution) on my computer. I found that you can buy 8.5 x 11 sheets of magnet/paper that you can run through your printer and then cut to shape. $12 for 4 sheets. You can print 3 ribbons per sheet. I had to try it out. Well, it looked OK, but was kind of bland and fuzzy. I stuck it on my car next to a yellow "Support Our Troops" ribbon and drove around (including in some light rain). The experiment was not to judge reaction (there was none) but to see how it looked (bright blue on gray), etc.

Bottom line: Leave it to the professionals. Might last better if over-laminated to protect printer ink. Magnet sheet is thinner but OK for indoor use. This method might work if you really, really wanted only a few of a unique design.

Big thanks to GOT, Mattz357, oldfella, and others for making this happen.

I'll take 5 of the #1 design... either color is OK though I guess I'd prefer black text.

Edit to add - At $2.xx, I'll take 5 of whatever design, whichever color... If they get down to $1.xx a copy, I'll take 10... Again, totally open to design...

Havng actually read the thread now, I'm totally open to whichever design keeps cost down allowing for widest distribution... And actually, I'd prefer it to just say '...shall not be infringed' so as long as that is on the design, I'm happy...

:p

October 19, 2004, 08:28 AM
Hey Mattz357, yes, they sent a proof. However they added a color (for a total of 3... we want a 2 color job. Some miscommunication happened.). So I emailed them some more instructions late last night and then they emailed me back early this morning and I just now replied back to them with some clarifications. They are great to work with, however there is some miscommunication as we both try to figure out what each other is wanting.

It should all be cleared up today. They have the design down-pat, its just a slight color issue now. SO, we should have another proof today sometime, I hope :)

October 19, 2004, 08:56 PM
OK, once again I talked with the MagnetAmerica.com graphic people and straightened out the color confusion... whew! I think we are ready to go!!!

Below is the proof I'm sending to MagnetAmerica.com. Its based on their latest proof, and has the color ordeal all down pat. I'll post their proof, which will look the same, when they send it to me (I haven't post their previous proof because of problems, but now we're all on the same page... I hope... hah!).

FYI: The gray color will be a silver metallic ink. It will not look as dark as it does in this image, because the lighting will make it look significantly brighter/lighter. I made a visit to a local Kinkos and checked out a physical example of the exact silver color (PMS silver 877 in case anyone wants to know), and its a neat looking color that varies with the lighting.

October 21, 2004, 07:50 PM
OK, finally got things all straightened out and here is MagnetAmerica.com's proof that Dav OKed.

October 22, 2004, 12:13 AM
Yes to those who ask if a re-order is possible. I've discussed this with MagnetAmerica. They wouldn't give an up-front discount on the possibility of a re-order, but they will take into account the size of this initial order when (if) we do order more.

And if it gets real popular, we can drive the price still lower.

We only have 695 pre-ordered, so there are still plenty for distribution if you find anyone wanting a fairly large order.

It's gonna be hard to wait for delivery now. ;)

Everyone,

As GOT indicated, I am the one who will be handling distribution.

I am maintaining a list of everyone who has expressed an interest, whether here, via e-mail, PM or on my website davrow.us (http://davrow.us).

You can change your order here, or by e-mailing me (davrow (davrow@san.rr.com)).

We have almost 700 pre-orders, so we have a few hundred extra at this point.

Estimated delivery date is November 19th.

I am not accepting payment, yet. I'll send e-mail to everyone to let them know when it is time for that.

Thanks everyone, this is a fun and educational experience.

Since we have an actual order placed, it is time to get the word out. I'm going to do a little more work on the website to try to make it friendlier (designed at 1024 x 768, should have made it fit smaller screens).

And if any one wants to order from you, feel free to take orders. You can pass the orders along to me, or if you want to mark-up the price and sell them yourself that is fine, too.

I'm holding the price as low as I can for THR and other gun board folks, but even I will be selling at full retail in my wife's eBay store.

Hey all that will/are paying with Pay Pal. Remember, DAV is selling these things for about nothing. Also, remember that Pay Pal charges the receiver a fee for accepting credit cards when you pay him with Pay Pal.

It might be nice to send an extra buck or so to cover the fees that DAV will incur as the seller here. If he loses money on these, we surely wont have another chance to order them again at these low prices.

aguyindallas, thanks for the thought (and putting your money where your mouth is). I had no idea how much credit card charges were going to be on PayPal. 44 cents on $4.80 (almost 10%) to $1.18 on $30.

On the other hand, what all of you who have pre-paid are including in your payment is faith in me that I will deliver. That's worth more to me than a few percent.

Besides, once I have the product in-hand, I will be raising prices on future sales. So that should help recoup some of these expenses.

So, Birddog13, price remains at $1.90 until product arrives around Nov. 19th.

I'm glad this came to fruition and I just ordered a couple.

I had a thought (as if this wasn't complicated enough), how about some 1/2 or 1/3 size for ammo cans, file cabinets, lockers, & such?

The big ones are great for a vehicle, but smaller ones (about the size of a playing card) would be a bit more versatile. Maybe for the second batch or something.

Have you given any thought of doing decals too? They should be cheaper and might be better for some applications.

Pluvo,

The same company we are dealing with for this order MagnetAmerica (http://www.magnetamerica.com) also does smaller magnet ribbons and "static clings" (decals without adhesive).

If quality is up to expectations and demand for these ribbons continues to be strong, then future orders will include those options.

Matt, I tried pictures and scanning. Neither worked for me, they came out looking more like a graphic than our graphics examples. ;-)

I do hope someone else has more luck photographing them than I did.

Ringer - sorry 'bout that. The bigger orders weighed to much for 1st Class Postage, so I sent them Priority Mail. Cacique's was one of those large orders.

(on the other hand, Rich K's was not one of those, so I guess I don't know why they got 'em first. :rolleyes: )

Ha :neener: - I received my package yesterday (Saturday). I placed two (2) ribbons between my back and rear windows; the back of my trunk is mostly taken up with plastic & lights. My car is silver, but you can still discern the ribbon. Good show, guys; Thanks, Dav. Y'all take care, you hear?

I need some brainstorming help.

I went to a range clean-up on Saturday. Naturally I gave several of these ribbons to some of the other volunteers.

But how, or what, can I include with the ribbon when giving it to someone that would let them know how to obtain more?

My most recent thought is a small label to stick on the back of each one with my website URL.

Any other ideas out there? Thanks.

The sticker thing sounds like a good idea.

Also, since a few people have asked, I bought *a lot* of these ribbons to get the price down to what we got.

There are plenty for all the orders placed so far, and still plenty after that for everyone you can talk into getting some. Thanks.

I've already received a couple of emails regarding the ribbon... one of the people that emailed me thinks I designed ALL of MagnetAmerica.com's ribbons (they thanked me for the yellow "support our troups" ribbon)... :D

Dis here iz Pancho...

Sorry, I just had to do that - old age, you know :) :)

Anyway - you beat me to it - the photo.

Seems I used a flash too up close and got a bad shot. Tried to work it out but no joy.

Maybe I'll try again manana (oops) sans flash.

Looks good.

1 week?
1 month?

Well...funny you should ask. Mine wasn't exactly 'stolen' but when I arrived at a customer site today it lasted about 5 minutes...he saw it on the back of the car and 'wanted' it :D Fortunately, I anticipated this and ordered MANY extras!!

Interesting photo Beardking. It looks like the ribbon will reflect a lot of light. Thats going to be cool at night time and under headlight illumination.

GOT, yeah, they do seem to reflect fairly well considering that was taken in my kitchen without a flash (the flash kept killing the photo). I think they'll do great on the vehicles. Of course, it would do better for me if my Rodeo wasn't white and my wife's Honda wasn't silver. :D

I think, had 'em shipped to workplace, and they may have arrived Sat.

VERY nice. Gonna put one on my daily driver, see how long it lasts here (I ordered a bunch for this, and to give away a few to friends).

I'm glad you are all enjoying your ribbons!

I bought some clear vinyl labels (Avery 8667) to put on the back of the magnets with my URL. A little larger than I wanted, but I think this will do fine. I'll feel lots better about giving them away knowing people will know how to find more.

Beardking had a good idea, for me to post a snippet of code that attaches to the ribbon icon/avatar so people could easily set up a link to my website. I'll post that shortly.

Anyone willing to post a link to the 2nd Amendment Ribbons ordering website is encouraged to do so. Just add the code here to your webpage:
<a href="http://davrow.us">
<img src="http://davrow.us/rkba.gif" width="66" height="100" alt="2A Ribbons"></a>

You have my permission to link to my graphic on my website, but you really should download the attached graphic and put it on your website and link to that, instead. If you link to my site and it is having problems, then response on your site will be affected. If you link to your own copy of the graphic then your site cannot be impacted by mine.

Thank you!

Dav, Thanks for the source code there. Unfortunately, I'll have to link directly to your site for the image because I'm using a free blog account and I don't have any actual place to store the image.

Mine arrived today, and one is on my car.

I'll be driving to the gun shop tomorrow or this weekend to show it off :D

Digi cam should be here tomorrow, according to FedEx tracking, plus my son arrives tomorrow with his digicam, so I should be able to post a picture before this weekend

Apropos of very little, he has a Pentax Optio S, and we're getting an Optio s5i.

The Optio S fits in an Altoids tin, and the s5i fits in with a little bit of bending of the tin. Makes a neat camera case.

Mine were waiting in my mailbox for me today!! One on my jeep, one on girlfriends car and one on my friends truck. I know of 3 other people that I work with that want one too. I'm sure I won't have a problem "getting rid of" the others and will probablly be back to order more!! :D

This has been a wonderful thread, but since these ribbons are now for sale, it is probably time to stop my posting in the General Discussion forum.

The new 'Ribbons for Sale' thread is here: 2nd Amendment Ribbons (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=112943)

Thank you all for your orders and for your support of the 2nd Amendment!

Stealthmode (and everyone else), yes, both designs of the magnet ribbons are still available.

E-Mail, PM me, or go to my website at 2nd Amendment Magnet Ribbons (http://davrow.us).

I don't make changes to the website very often, but it was fully functional last time I checked.

Thanks,

Dave great thanks.

Are there any other ideas in the works I am always wanting to buy new pro 2A items like your magents. T-shirts and hats I like to give away as gifts also.

dav
November 28, 2005, 06:00 PM
stealthmode,

These magnet ribbons were a THR project - conceived and designed by THR members. I just did the ordering and distributing.

Too much money involved for me to expand into new ventures. Since I'm not in business and only distribute these basically to THR folks, I haven't quite recouped my investment, yet.

So, no other 2A items from me. Sorry.

Dav
