LOL! I love that picture. I tried to get in contact with the artist (you can see my comment on his site) but failed. I did edit it just slight... see my bubble? *grin*

We changed ours a little too...added a sweating penguin with it.

Getting off topic, but do those of you with wooden nickels use any sort of clear coat on them? or do you just release them as they are??

 

I have some wooden nickels that I just stamp and thats it. So far so good. Wanna trade? :grin:

 

For those of you that stamp your own blanks, where do you get your stamp made? I just got my avatar and would like to incorporate it into a stamp. Also, where do you buy your blanks?

I use laser-burned nickels from this site and release them as-is with no clear coating.

Here are our wooden nickels. We made these from stamps that I had made up with Staples Office Supply. I then colored them in and clear coated them.

Those are cool! How much does it cost to get a stamp made? And as for the poker chips, what kind of stickers are you printing them on?

 

I am heading to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to find some blank nickels and some Avery label sheets. I picked up the clear coat and small ziplocks today.

 

Hopefully I'll have some nickels to take with me to Michigan next weekend!

I'm putting together a Token/signature item cache and was wondering if anyone would like to donate a token to the cache? It will be called "Coins, Tokens & Nickels Oh My!" . I'm also putting in some of the pins that come with coins. I've also put in some tokens and nickels that I was sent duplicates of. And of course some of ours are in there and will be replenished every so often. And yes coins too!

 

Anyone else have a cache like this?

P.S. Willing to trade tokens if anyones interested. That was kinda the "proof", the real ones are wood background.

Keep your eyes out for new MetroGT FIMO tokens... went by the store the other day since they were having a sale on clay (1/3 off) and a coupon for 40% off any one item...

 

I picked up a pasta machine and 22 packs of FIMO!

 

Time to design a new token!

my daughter said "If you put a hole in the top, it would make a keychain"

 

I think it would definately make a nice zipper pull for your caching bag ;)

I think I have my design now... if only I could reproduce it on the PC so that I could have a design to follow.

 

I want my new design to also be my avatar/wooden nickel... so I'm trying to get it fixed first and I'll copy it as a FIMO... hopefully.

We are currently in the process of creating our second edition poker chip tokens.

Not sure how they will turn out yet, but we will be including our most recent caching cards along with them if anyone is interested.

 

Will keep you posted.

I like your coin GG, can you tell me who made them?

Thanks Brae

They are made by a guy that I work with. He has a side business of making scrapbooking cutouts with a laser. His laser is also capable of cutting and etching wood (obviously). If your interested send me an email and I can put you in touch with him. Just and FYI, they run about $1.25 each, not cheap, but cheaper than the real coins. Like I said, they look much better in person. I put one in an air tight coin holder and it looks sweet.

 

Geocoins.net sells coins wooden coins for $0.65 each. Custom has setup charge (essentially a die fee for a regular coin). And two sided coins are now available.

 

They are smaller (1.25" diameter) and made of bass wood.

 

Just an FYI for those looking for places that sell wooden coins.

I just got my wooden blanks in the mail and can't wait to start on the design (I already know, pretty much) but I have a question: Can I use the un-adulterated geocaching symbol on my wooden tokens?

 

Double check the info on Geocaching.com. You can use the symbol for presonal use, but I believe you can not make more than 100 if memory serves me right.

Some of the FIMOs look better than others, so I'm sorting them out at the moment.

 

I'll be sending one of each to the few people I am currently in the middle of a trade with.

Well, it's been a busy week here in New Westminster, with Kermit going to the hospital with what we thought a crushed thumb after he decided to drop a pallet of water bottle caps on himself.

 

Turns out that there were no broken bones, but lots of pain.

 

The packages finally made their way out yesterday (sorry for the delay) and we have received our first token from summerandnana.

 

Thank you all for trading...
