Thank you for the suggestion. The board has budgeted $400 for cache container stickers. The precise design, price, and timeline for availability are yet to be worked out.

I just happened to do a quick search online and noticed that custom bumper stickers (full color & 3"x10") can be purchased in bulk for 560 / 1000 or less than $0.60 each. At this size you could have multiple smaller sizes with on larger one.

Just throwing out ideas and leveraging on the bumper sticker idea. I've never purchased these, but assume that a bumper sticker would be "weather friendly" and it included full color at no additional charge.

This idea was discussed in the board meeting along with several others.

One thing we learned is that company's that print stickers will likely not take a job if you are planning to "cut up" the sticker into multiple stickers. They know this by the design you submit. They earn revenue on quantity printed. It is generally frowned upon in that industry to print 2 stickers on one sticker. This is typically why stickers aren't as cheap as you think they "should be".

In this economy, I'm quite sure if you approached a printing company with a 2 or 3 up design and explained to them that the 3 parts were meant for an individual cache and therefor necessary, they wouldn't turn you away. Just design it in such a way that it looks like a concert ticket or hunting liscense that has a number of integral, but separable, parts.

I think the case could be made that a sticker design like that could and would be used for multi caches. Now, if some cachers decide to use them for different caches, that's their perogative.

Thank you for posting that. I agree but was unable to articulate it as well as you did.

I done lots of customer specific labels and the easy way to explain a 2 part on a single label (with a dashed line withOUT "cut here") is to say it's going to be folded around the corner so it's visible from 2 sides.

On a side note - I found another site that gets the price down to around $0.37 for a 3x11 full color. 2x3 would be 0.16 each. All assuming 1000 quantity. I think this is a very doable project at either of these prices.

I agree with the concept of "dash line with no words" that would allow for visible on 2 sides. And I don't think that this is dishonest, as I could see them being use that way, especially on an ammo box.

I just got off the phone a monent ago with a client. It didnt bother them that we might cut the sticker up to make two of them, it was even suggest they could put in a perferation to make it easier to separate. I hope to get some pricing from them in the next few days.

Maybe I am missing something here. Why would/should the WGA cover the cost of these and make them free to its members? Or are you thinking of selling them at the WGA store?

they would be sold. Far too costly to give away for free.
