We just got our wooden nickels in today and I want to do some trading but I don't want to spend a lot on postage, how do you all trade yours? Do you just send them in regular envelopes with a regular stamp or do you put them in bubble envelopes? I have a few envelopes from coin trades and purchases but not a lot of people use regular stamps on their envelopes? I want to be able to just put them in our mail box instead of having to keep going to the post office. Any advice is appreciated.

 

We will be trading a good bunch of these for other sig items (preferably other nickels) or coins if you don't have your own sig item. Just pm us.

Hey Victorviking,

 

We would love to trade nickels with you but for some reason I can't get to your profile to pm you? Looks like the site is having some problems. I never got your pm either? Anyway you can email us at wheely5@hotmail.com. That goes for anyone else who wants to trade too:)

Yeah, slowdownracer has some cool trades. We got ours yesterday. I also sent n8turgrl a request for a trade and have not heard anything yet? Hope everything is ok.

Thanks for the kind words, dardevle and nichipra. After about 2 years of collecting nickels and chips, close to 200 by now, they are all "cool". Cheaper than coins, and a bit less shiny, but still all the values and sentiment for each geocacher who has one made or makes their own. Any day with a wooden nickel trade in my mailbox is a great day, another connection made to someone else, somewhere else in the world.

 

Keep them coming! Any more new traders? Anyone need help getting started, just e-mail me.

OTazMan,

Yours went out in the mail yesterday. Thanks for trading!

 

Got Slowdownracers nickel and poker chip a couple of days ago. I agree with everyone else. They are really nice. Thanks so much for trading.

 

It's so nice to be able to trade on the internet. Very few people seem to make wooden nickels around here to leave in caches. I think we have found a total of 3 all summer.

 

If anyone else wants to trade, just send me an email.

If you don't mind my asking, where did you get the labels for your poker chips? The office stores around here only carry the 1 inch labels that are perforated down the middle. I have been making ours using sticker paper and my scrapbook circle punch. It would be so much easier to have 1 inch labels.

 

Anyone need help getting started, just e-mail me.

I don't use store-bought stickers either. I'll e-mail you my instructions.

So far we have wooden nickels or sig items from slowdownracer, n8turgrl, and OTazMan. Thanks for the trades:) Some of our nickels and sig cards were traded for coins but we only have around 15 left so if you would like a trade let us know:)

Hey GBOTS, I recieved your nickels today. VERY nice. The blue and red one is really :rolleyes: .

I have to apologize though. With getting ready for hunting I forgot about the trade we

set up. I am sorry that I have not yet sent you mine yet. I am packaging mine up

as soon as this is posted. They will be in the mail tommorow.

Thanks again for the trade! :D

I never even realized that there was a Wooden Nickel Trading Forum on here! I have been printing and producing my own sign nickels at my dining room table for a while now. It seems like it takes a lot of work the way I do it, but I really like how they turn out.

 

First, I came up with a design idea, then went out and shot the photography for the front side (I used photography from my trip out west for the back), and played with everything in Photoshop to make it look the way I wanted it to.

 

I print on glossy paper, but the ink tends to bleed if it gets wet, so I need to protect it. First, a spray on acrylic coating, then 3 coats of clear varnish. The finished product looks really nice. It's a lot more work than what I see from other nickels I find in caches dropped around here, but I am really proud of how mine stands out.

 

I tried making a few 3" nickels, but they didn't fare as well. Seems they are far more likely to find air pockets between the print and the wood. They also tend to end up kind of wrippled-looking.

 

I'd be really interested in trading with some folks from far away places (Im in NY state, USA). Write me a message if you are interested!

Ok folks, I am just finishing off a batch of coins with the 4th coat of varnish. I have emailed about 10 of you to see if you are still interested in trading, and I have already heard back from 3 of you. Hope to get some of these coins in the mail tommorow, and to hear from some more of you soon!

 

Thanks!

Ok! I sent wooden nickels out today to the following cachers:

 

GBOTS

Nochipra

Slowdownracer

Dardevle

Dream Cachers

Frank n Beck

OTazman (sent two)

Let me know if you don't recieve them in a few days. I am in NY, so your proximity to that state may affect delivery time.

 

Looking forward to seeing your coins!
