    Dues and Finances

    This thread is for reporting and updates on information related to dues and financing.

    Dues are $50 annually, to be paid during the month of October.

    Dues should be remitted via PayPal if at all possible. Our PayPal account is ebaysales@dead-ends.com.

    Please see the Bi-laws and policies thread if you have questions about the benefits of becoming a dues-paying member.

    If you have a question about dues or finances, please send me a private message.

    Our PayPal account balance is $277.00 as of 09/27/2011. I will do my best to update this thread monthly, or as appropriate.

    Also, we are now officially in the black on the NHAA patches! we have recouped our expense of $207 and have now made $2! We have about 40 patches left and will make $200 selling them at $5 each.

    When we choose a vendor, i will ask. it should just be a matter of them swapping the plates around. if we're going to do reversible, then we probably need to have the casket logo full size on the front so we don't have to pay for them to make 3 plates. i'll probably start a separate thread for t-shirts.

    If you go casket logo on front it should be pocket size.
    However... I would prefer shovel girl (new design) on front full size and casket logo on back also full size, it would give it more of a concert t-shirt look.

    Maybe we could so some of each.

    i can say with 90% certainty it will involve the casket logo on the front and shovel girl on the back. the main question, i think, is whether the casket logo will be large, or pocket size.

    Careful with those hoodies. You don't want to end up like Trayvon.



    I don't like hoodies anyway. I can't wear them with the long hair. I pull it out because it's more comfortable and then I try to put the hood up and it just doesn't work.

    "GUS MUST DEAD" means "GUS MUST DEAD". No further explanation is necessary.

    We should just do some of each way, with the new design on the front on some and the back on others.
    I imagine like a concert shirt with the big flashy design on front ( new design) and something plain, simple, and to the point (old design) on back.

    I think that we should have the new logo on the back, that way if we have a jacket or vest on, we can wear our shirt under it and not look retarded for having the same thing on the front and back.
    For the front we should either have the old logo, big or pocket size, OR we could steal kevins tag idea and put "we want your body" where "gus must dead" currently is...if he's ok with it..

    i also agree that we need to come up with cool shit other people want to wear to generate $$$

    stuff like those rubber bracelets like on www.wristbands.net and buttons and magnets are cheap, and sell cheap, but if we sell copious amounts of them, they might be profitable

    I know a few people locally with them and have worked with three. Rowan (Rozzlyn when I met her) did them and sold them at Necto. Rob does them all for Dave (The Amino Acids/The Casket Bastards/The Ded Dave Show) and will mail them. Finally, Phill tends bar at Northern Lights where I used to work and that's when I got into the 1.5 buttons (which are nicer IMO). Generally prices are $20 for 100 buttons from what I've seen between the two. Buttons are 1 and 1.5 inches. I've even got a magnet that Phil did (apparently the press works for those as well).

    Getting a hold of a button press is vastly cheaper and you can get ones that will do multiple sizes. You could always get one of those, do work for other people on the side, and save the profits up to help offset the cost of a shirt press. Shit I like that idea, I might just do that myself. I could sell Hell swag to the stores in Hell.

    I totally understand. When I get some extra cash I will be getting some patches... however scraping together extra cash especially when I have other projects I'm working on has been difficult. Currently we have $20 in our coffer that one member donated about a year ago now and I've put in some of my own cash on the domain and buttons.

    The major key is to get some bad-ass swag that people will want to pay money for, not only to support the club but just because it's cool. I've got Reaper and Grimm Daddy working on some logo ideas and I want to get shirts this summer for all of us. I think a couple members have a printing press but I haven't talked to them in a while and they don't seem too enthused (probably why I haven't talked to them in a while).

    I'm just trying to come up with some ideas. If I can get a hold of (or get access to) a cheap press some how I'll be happy to make whatever the hell you want for cost.
