I would have worn mine at Whitby, but I couldn't get to them till I got back home last night! I'm over-the-moon with them, many thanks to all involved.

Now all we need is someone who can knock up some stickers, with glue that won't damage our instruments when they're pulled off!

Much appreciate that you took this on, nice one.

I thought I'd spotted you sporting one in the distance  (:) but was tied up with the Morris  :|||: so couldn't catch up with you to say "hello".
 Thank you Greg, the envelope arrived on the mat today, found it as we all staggered in after the parade this evening and will be wearing one tomorrow  ;D

Would Avery work, or are they too permanent?
[Edit: I think they are removable with an alcohol rub, but I've never tried it]

"Would Avery work"

I thought they made shop scales? Or, to put it another way, I've no idea whatsoever!
I had thought that the vinyl sticker man who has replaced signwriting would be the easiest, but they may be too expensive.

I thought they [Avery] made shop scales? Or, to put it another way, I've no idea whatsoever!
I had thought that the vinyl sticker man who has replaced signwriting would be the easiest, but they may be too expensive.

Avery are THE supplier for label blanks. Removable adhesive paper blanks would cost about £6 plus postage for box of 20 sheets. I have a friend with a laser printer who might help.
Commercial manufacture is cheap per label but minimum order quantities seem to be £40 (for 500 plastic labels).

I have another friend with a printing business. I could ask him for options.

Is there any interest

Depending on cost, I'd have a few. Don't know how many just now, as it's past my bedtime!
My printer mate (from our youth) retired last year, and he specialised in labels, b****r!

Cost of removable adhesive plastic labels, 40mm dia,  printed,  is about 8p each plus postage. But minimum order is £40ish, which is 25 sheets of 18 labels. If they're moved on by the sheet this would come to £1.60 a sheet plus postage (A4 envelope), which seems reasonable to me.

I think we need about 23 more people interested.

I'd take a sheet, and if the order proved to be difficult to make up, I'd take another as well.

New thread started in buy and sell (don't know if that's an appropriate place. Leave it up to Theo to decide). If you're interested, please post there.
