RWVA Logo 50" x 60" Blanket
« on: February 18, 2011, 06:40:05 PM »
I took it upon myself to create a 50" x 60" fleece blanket with the RWVA logo for use at gun shows, promotional events, shoots, etc.  I am not selling these, but with the permission of the higher-ups, I would be happy to make the artwork available to anyone who wants to have one of these made for promotional purposes.   With approval I'd be happy to post the file here (it is nearly 4 MB).  Mods, please let me know if I have permission to post the image file.

I had it printed at Kodak and the cost was only $31.19 (including shipping) with a first time order discount of 50%.  Add $20.00 for normal price.  It took one week from order to arrival.  I just received it today and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised by the quality.  I was not expecting much since Kodak requires a bitmap graphic instead of a vector graphic.  The pixelation is very minimal and almost unnoticeable, even up close.  Here is what it looks like:

 
This is NOT the file, it is just a thumbnail image.  Don't use this image to make a blanket!

Thanks.

How bout flags? 

I got a guy here in NYC that says he can make some flags cheap.  The logo on a white background or whatever. 

Does this exist anywhere else?  Is the idea of a flag frowned upon?

The RWVA oval logo is trademark protected by the RWVA. 

I would assume that something like this could be done, but it would need to go through Riflewoman, the AB and Fred.

One a personal note.....I would love to have  one .... two!   O0

I've looked into flags before, at Fred's request.  But like many AS projects it died on the vine.  If you would like to look into it again and get some pricing etc.  I'll take it to the AB for approval.

I'm on it.

who wants straight black logo on white (cheap)?

Black and Green logo on white blackground (two color screen)?

Then there's the combos of black logo on green background and blah blah blah forever.  I'll look into everything, but who's got an opinion. 

Personally, I like the simple one, and then a more complex one.  Say Black on a light green, or black and green on light green.

Then there's the question...  do we put the word "Appleseed" on there, a web address (NO!!), or something else...

If this is not the place to discuss this, you can pm me.  I will start a new thread when I have something to say and post a link here. 

Far as I'm concerned we can continue here, but I'm not good with the discussion protocols.  Pardon, and no offense.

Thanks RW!!!!!

I will make this happen!

Black on light green.  No web address.
