Re: The Key Fob


I"d be up for investing quite a bit for a rather large chunk of a larger order. I'm planning on doing a few sci-fi conventions this year as a vendor and was thinking about doing something to promote lost room

I will invest.

I nominate Paul to handle the actual transaction (assuming we get sufficient buy-in so that he doesn’t have to front anything). I trust Paul, and he has a good eye for this sort of thing.

Good news fellow Collectors! As of the beginning of the coming week, I have a job!

Have high hopes for keeping this one. If someone is willing to send me one, and accept PayPal pays, I´m in too for one!

Re: The Key Fob


A larger order?

mmm....okay, then someone needs to make a good black and white of the printing on the fob. I made one, but it's not perfect. Maybe someone can do better.

I have one company that's going to give me a quote for making a custom logo stamp, so it'll be the cost of the stamp plus the cost of fobs, and the imprinting.

If people want to share costs, that's fine.

i would too, but i don't think enough people would want to put in a minimum order for each fob. maybe just use a number sticker.

yeah, depending on how much, i'm willing to chip in for 100 fobs of my own, assuming they are priced at the whole sale rate. i might be out of a loop, but the links lean me toward only being like, .50 per fob if you order in bulk or something.

correct me please if i missunderstand

Re: The Key Fob


it just occurred to me that if a hotel only has one room 1, 1 room 2 etc, then why do places like these want a minimum order of 50? it should be easy to print say, 2 or 3 as a back up incase one goes lost, but 50 of each room key? that seems out of whack.

Re: The Key Fob


To set a few things straight :

They offer printing in THEIR font because they already have lettering for "Hot pressed stamps" They have lettering ONLY. So if someone wants something like we do, they have to make a stamp of the logo.

 A custom stamp costs a minimum of $200. This is just for the stamp. And then something like 59 cents for each fob to be printed. I'm still waiting for my quote, but 50 fobs would be $230 ish. But 100 fobs would be $259.

That's the difference between $4.60 a fob and $2.60 a fob.

The more fobs we have printed, the more that $200 is divided, and that lowers the per fob price. That is why TrekClassic's fobs were $15 apiece. He didn't buy that many, and that made each one be more expensive.

I want to get 50 fobs, so that I can offer them with my keys as a set.

It might be possible to get numbers 1 through 10 if we make our stamp without the number. But then, they'll use whatever font they have in whatever SIZE they have. It would likely make the Room 10 key be LESS accurate. Only by having the 10 as a custom stamp can we insure it's accuracy.

Which is the long way of saying 1-9 is not practical.

****************

Does everyone agree on YELLOW printing ?
I asked for the quote for the metallic gold, so I need to know if I should change it !!!


also, is my picture okay, then? I don't see anyone saying no....

'room' needs to be bigger


what was the original of this fob anyway, is this another fan-made replica? If it is then we need to make comparization with screenshots.
