Mel.Net stickers
« on: August 25, 2018, 12:58:13 AM »

Not sure if this is the right place for this. Theo?

Following up on The Man Formerly Known As Edward's suggestion I have  investigated the practicality of getting Melodeon.net stickers made, to the same pattern as Steve's melnet badges..
I have located a source. The price would work out at, about,  38, plastic, secure but removable adhesive stickers for £5.00, delivered. Payment via plastic fiver in the post.

Given the batch sizes I would need 10 people interested, or 20, or 30, etc..

Anyone?

Not sure what I'd do with 38 of the little b*****s, but put me down for a sheet, please.

If enough people are interested much smaller batches will be possible, but I can't afford to stand to the balance [Edit: i.e., my wife wouldn't let me] and I don't want 400 of the little perishers, either.
I'll ask a local printer I know if he could manage a smaller batch.

Cost per sheet of eighteen,  from the firm I have contact with, would be be about £1.60 plus delivery (I think that quantity would fit a standard letter). Minimum batch I can buy at the moment is 25 sheets.

I don't care how long it takes to move them, but I haven't got a way of keeping their availability in the public eye so, what didn't go quick would be mine forever.

"what didn't go quick would be mine forever."

Yes, of course they would. But then you'd have more than anyone else in the whole world! Doesn't that appeal to you, even a little? "THE MELODEON.NET STICKER KING" It's a grand title!

Not wishing to tread on anyone's toes (and tell me to bu88er off if I am); but I have a friend who could print some of these if no alternative exists...

On plastic, or vinyl media that has removable adhesive?

I will need to confirm, but he has printed stickers before - IIRC vinyl on a peel off backing. Sticks quite well to fabric...

What I was looking at were  stickers that could be put on an instrument, etc., (securely) and peeled off after an indefinite period without damaging the surface were attached to.

They sound interesting, though.

Not that I would claim any expertise regarding glues, but I have had some experience with vinyl lettering on vehicles and signs. I've successfully removed many vinyl stickers from gloss paintwork, varnished surfaces and plain wood by gentle application of heat from a normal hair dryer.

Apologies for not responding sooner - just back at work after the long weekend.
My friend will be back at his desk today as well; unfortunately in a different office for today, but will contact him to see what says (at worst I'll hopefully see him on Friday, so will have answer by the weekend).
He has a large vinyl printer (3' - 4' width IIRC) with the print medium being roller fed, so there are no 'sheets' per se.

Once again - apologies for the long silence...

Finally managed to get in contact with my friend - he can produce the stickers at about £1.50 per A4 sheet (equivalent); how many he can get on a 'sheet' depends on the size of each sticker.
