Yeah.... I'm just struggling with what design to do! I've been playing in CAD all day and I'm kinda back to square one now.

I will be getting one with my local club logo on it:

We're trying to get a group buy together. Whalen will waive the custom engraving fee if we get at least 5 buyers.

Ever think about doing a MU Whalen group buy?

Hey Miles... I've been giving serious thought to the Whalen too. Maybe we could do that group buy thing if we can get 3 more people in on it.

Whalen won't do group buys if I remember correctly
If there was one, oh man, the list was going to be a long one..

That's what I thought too, I was just going off what dickdavid said. I hope it's true but if it's not... I'll probably still get one.

Sorry for the misunderstaning. The only discount Whalen is giving is that he's waiving the custom engraving fee (usually $20) for orders of 5 or more. We haven't worked out all the order details yet, so I'm not sure if it's one buyer for all five or if folks can order their own from the same design.

Here's his email reply:
Hi Richard,

Thanks for your interest in my shift knobs!

That logo would be no problem to engrave; however, I would require a DXF file of the design, for programming purposes.

Can you provide the DXF file? If not, I can have Craig Burkett of Evergreen Graphic convert your jpeg to DXF for me.
Normally, I pay him $20.00 to do that; but I'll eat that cost, if I can get five or more orders.

Speaking of orders; let me also offer a discount of $20.00 per knob (my usual engraving charge), if I can get five orders or more...

...Let me know if you would like to pursue this. If you can't supply the DXF, I will forward the jpeg on to Craig.

Best regards,

Doug


BTW. If you have Adobe Illustrator, it exports to DXF. I'm not sure if it works okay, so a guy in our local club, with a CAD program, will check my file once it's ready to go.

Yeah, sounds like it's for 5 or more as long as it's the same design.

I think the official MU logo would look great on a Whalen...

I think the MU logo on a Whalen would be AWESOME! If I wasn't already committed to my Whalen, I'd be on this deal.

Honestly, I would totally do the m|u logo, but I finally came up with something really cool that I wanna do... And it involves stick figures
