Well, the glow-in-the-dark translucent experiment that I didn't tell too many people about was a failure. (yeah, it was going to be neat). Oh well - the regular translucent suncatcher (warm and cool colors) are still a go!

 

Schedule is currently: samples and photos the week of the 17th, orders late July, ship mid-August.

They came out really nice Crake.

 

:rolleyes: I would agree that they are very nice. Just wonder why the above "poster" doesn't have a problem with the geocachers name not being on it when the above "poster" does have a problem when others don't put their caching name on other coins. I quote the above "poster" from another geocoin discussion "Too bad they neglected to put their geocaching nicks on the coin. Then I think it would be a fantastic personal geocoin. As it stands right now, it's a generic coin that somehow managed to get approval for tracking numbers. Shame." end quote. :anitongue: Guess it may depend on the coin maker?

Just food for thought. :ph34r: But enough of that.

 

Look forward to seeing these in a cache. At least I hope someone turns some loose. :ph34r:

Good point; I don't see a spot for a tracking number. Assuming it's on the reverse? And is that, in fact, two different color schema? Nice work, either way.

Thanks for the great comments. I'll try to answer several questions:

 

Trackable - YES these are Groundspeak trackable. The number goes between the .COM and KEEP. The Samples I talked about in the email are not trackable since they are samples. However the standard issue coins will be trackable with a custom icon.

 

Color Schemes - There are 2 color schemes: warm and cool.

 

Price: $7.90 each or 1 of each color for $15.

 

Availability: Orders in early August, and ship late August.

 

Name on coin: My name is always somewhere on the coins I make for myself. Usually along the edge. Coins I make for others depends on that individual's desires.

Just food for thought. :( But enough of that.

 

Because Crake makes art and others make coins :)

Will there be one icon or two?

 

Excellent question. There will be 1 icon, and it'll probably be the warm colors since that is how the design has been represented over time.

How many are you making? I am going to be in the wilderness the first week of August and am just wondering if there will be any left when I return.

You will be able to order from the suncatcher webpage (per forum rules I can't post a link directly to the store, but you'll be able to get to it from the coin's page).

 

As far as quantity goes, I will have sufficient coins on hand to satisfy all demand during the period that the coin is active. This period is no shorter than 1 month. I believe in stress-free ordering (no F5 hitting here!)

Status update: A minor tweak is required, so orders are now expected to open week of Aug 7th with estimated shipping by Aug 28.
