Vinyl is Back! Well, BN Vinyl that is!

1100 posts in this topic

Well, after reading BadAndy's post about Releasing geocoins...

I started humming that old song "Please Release Me... let me go..."

 

And then it hit me!!! A NEW COIN!

 

Fluttershy

Stray from the Pile (the Dog Pile of Geocoins we all have! :ph34r: )

 

Here it is!

 

1. I need a Producer

2. I need 2/3 other "Recording Artists" who would like to contribute toward a 3/4 Geocoin Set.

3. This will be available Spring 2007.

4. Please email me if you're interested!

5. If you'd like to see what your Record would look like for fun Try it here: Make Some Vinyl

6. Post it in this thread!

 

I'd love to see a Yemon Yime Record!!! :ph34r:

Depending on how many you're thinking of making, I'm in to do 1/4th or whatever.

 

Sent you an email.

My song name is a spin off of Alan Jackson's "Gone Country"

I think that this will be close to my final design the colors are our (father and son) two favorites

Thanks for the feedback!

 

So, what I'm trying to decide is how to go about this???

 

A record has two sides= One Individual per Side.

On your side:

 

Top = Your Name

second= Your Record's Name

 

Choice of two different colors

Each coin will have the "adapter" design in the center

 

Produced by= will be the vendor we choose,

I'm also going to ask Jamie aka MadHatter to do the artwork and I'll include a little logo of his.

 

Bottom = The name of your song. Can't be the exact name of a song...

 

Also, you can include one little logo/drawing on your side to make it unique. It will go on the opposite side of Jamie's Logo.

 

3 Coins would be 6 People. 300 coins to produce?

Details will be discussed on the rest...

We still have a functioning turntable, (and over 500 albums!). We also own a couple "one hit wonder" caches, so we would be interested. Will need to think of the right song. I'll send you and e-mail.

:ph34r:

So two different cachers would share a coin?

Or maybe it would be better for all coins to have one common side and then each cacher could have their own coin.

 

I think it would be good to have 5 people in this each gets 50 coins and then it could have an icon.

Sounds good to me. I would be willing to pay for 50 coins to be made as part of an order.

That's pretty neat... I'm just too computer illiterate to know how to post my "album" here! Do the pics have to be hosted at another site and then get moved here?

This sounds good, but I wonder what the one common side would be?

 

I'm thinking 6 people, 5 + me. There seems to be a lot of interest.

 

Would these be trackable? Would we sell sets? Thoughts?

I think they should be trackable and it seems to me that people are more interested in singles instead of sets (I remember a topic about this) If I remember right people didn't like to pay $25-30 for a set when they only wanted one. you could always offer some in a set and some as singles. Just a thought :ph34r:

If the point is for them to travel, I think they should be trackable, but hey I'm open.

 

As for selling them, I guess it depends how many will be made, we probably be up for financing our own share if you don't want to sell them. And remember if they are not trackable we wouldn't be able to mention selling them on this forum.

I agree, they should be trackable with an Icon. :ph34r:

This is a great "generic" back. We could put the tracking # below the "trackable at geocaching.com"

or this:

 

Just have to add the colors:

I vote for this one with the colors looking the same as the other one. But where would you put the tracking #?

I sent my thoughts in email. If 2 cachers share a coin, the costs are less because there isn't a 7th common die to be shared as far as cost. But, whatever the others want, works for me.

 

Basically with 6 people and 1 vendor name, you'de simply have a single die fee and the cost of 50 coins delivered. It's easier to manage. But again, I don't care which way it's handled.

 

I also said that selling them as singles would be best for the same reasons mentioned above. If all the coins share an icon, then some people won't want to buy a set. I also want to add that selling them should be left up to the individual cachers involved. It will get way to confusing otherwise.

You could put the tracking # over where it says Stereo and Time.

 

EDIT TO SAY: If everyone wants to share a coin that is good too. The addtional cost of adding a common side is only $10 per person if 6 people are involved. Either way is fine.

 

I for sure agree with AG that selling or what ever should be left up to each person.

 

Since we are including a vendors name maybe some vendor would be inclined to throw in an icon for free! :ph34r: That would save each coin person $25. :ph34r:

That won't work well. Too much raised metal overlaying raised metal outline. It's gotta be a box on one of the sides or something else.

I've got it! After Stereo Time:

 

Geocaching Logo or Mad Hatter's Logo will be on the left

 

and your own Logo is printed on the right, on the front side, replacing Stereo Time in the front.

We're going to talk to a Vendor on Pricing, and come back with costs.

 

Please post if you're definately interested in having your own "Record" in our Collection.

 

Thanks!

The vendor I suggested to Allie already confirmed they'd work with us and provide some sort of discount for their name in the "produced by" field.

#6. Goes to GPX Navigators

 

That's for our team of 6, but if you're still interested, please don't be discouraged!

We're getting a price from the Vendor and once I get a Quote, I will inform you.

Perhaps you can do another round of 4-6 people. There are several that inquired.

I'll let you know! :ph34r:

Allie, if you get enough people committed, you could bump this to 10 people for 500 total coins made. We'd get a large price break at the 500 mark (and that would make the pre-discount base figure I emailed you even lower).

This is such a FUN idea!! I love it!

 

The Cach-u-nuts want in on a side if there's room - and of course we'd be willing to mint the coin for a "very" good price as well :ph34r:

 

Send The details to us at The Caching Place and we'll get you some pricing!!

Thank you very much for your offer, C&G, but we have found a vendor.

 

If you'd like a Side, we're looking for 4 more spots to fill. :ph34r:

Hey Fluttershy, what are the chances of the Cach-U-Nuts and I sharing a coin? Of course assuming they are interested in sharing?

Even if there are only 8 of us, if the price break at 500 coins is significant, we could each get 62+ coins instead of 50. If it didn't add too much to the cost we could be convinced into that.
