I've thought about doing some merchandise things for BoB before. At first I wanted to see if it was going to stay around, that seems to be the case now. Then I turned over control of the board to DPG. We'll get together and talk about different possibilities.

T-shirts or some type of apparel with a logo. I have a cousin near Atlanta that is an outstanding graphic artist that does t-shirts for our family reunion that always turn out real nice. I would be willing to talk to him about doing something for us.

My original idea was to create a mascot for the board. "BoB" (we could make it a characteur of TJ Very Happy) I've looked into professional designers and it seems it could be done for anywhere between 200 and 600 dollars. Then I was thinking about setting up one of those on demand store fronts to keep start up costs down. I looked around a bit on the zippos and it seems we could order a minimum of fifty for around 600. When I talk to DPG we'll figure out the best way to get started.

I know that ASP does an annual Zippo and it always turns out real nice. Someone sent me a brand new one in brushed brass and it looks outstanding.

Several years ago I contacted Zippo to make an SHPC club lighter. The problem with doing them was that we had to place a mimimum order of 20-30 lighters as I recall. I guess we'd have to see if we have 20-30 folks here that would buy them?

Any idea what the cost could be? I guess that would make or break it for me, the most I could justify* would be 25-30 bucks.

That would be about the price I'm guessing, maybe a few bucks less. Smallest order I could find was fifty though.

This one may take some time but I'm sure we can get something going sometime soon.

As for shirts and mugs and the like, I think if you can provide a hi-res jpeg you can get those web based merchandising outfits to set you up fairly inexpensively. Both Briar Blues and Pease have stores, maybe Greg could give you an idea of start up costs?

It's zero with those storefronts, well with Zazzle anyway. I was thinking about something like that until we can bank enough to put an order in for something more substantial like the zippos.

PD is right, you can do the shirts and such for about what the shirt or mug, etc costs, like my cousin does for us. We do the shirts with a fairly complicated graphic for $15. I'm not a Zippo fan so that is why I haven't spoke up on that. Of course it would be up to the majority.

Zippo?

I fill my Ser Jac Maxima Maxima Maxima with Walnut. Douse it liberally with lighter fluid. Put a match to it.

It's also an excellent alternative to the salt and alcohol treatment.

That's called a "Maxima cocktail".

(Molotov cocktail for reference)

Ah! I get it!

Fill your pipe with Walnut. Light it. Throw it at the enemy.

Cool

From the research and checking I did Zippo no longer does "custom" logo lighters but sold that portion of the business to a company called Leed's out of Pennsylvania. From what I can tell the minimum order on custom lighters with a logo is fifty. It looks like the cheapest (depending on whether chrome or brass) goes anywhere from around $25 to $35. This is with one name and logo (one color). Not sure if it is extra for the pipe type Zippo's. Here is their Internet site.

Here's an example of the ASP club pipe. I have the one done in brushed brass. It has prices listed, which should give some idea of the individual cost.
