I just had to show off my most recent get! This Victini is pink, but still pretty adorable. It is definitely a bootie, but it was so cute I couldn't resist! The back has "Pokemon" stamped on it, no é, tm, or any other markings.
My question is about another members question they posted a while back that I can't seem to find to link to right now:
Could we do a metal charm or badge design contest?
I was thinking about it when I saw the post, and since I was bored I decided to try and make a design! I am an Animator/Illustrator/Web Designer who is currently unemployed so I have a lot of time on my hands to play around in AI...
I know of a quality custom charm maker nearby me(Chicago) that can do metal charms as well as plastic ones. They are Printsess, and their prices seem pretty reasonable. I am going to use them soon to print out charms I am going to sell at a convention.
I would be happy to order and ship out charms if we did the contest, even if someone else won the design contest. They seem to only do charms though, not badges. So it would depend on which route we wanted to go.
So... badges or charms? I think either way this is a cool idea!
EDIT: Prices would depend on how many are ordered. If we wanted charms Printsess prices would be $4.50 for 100 2 inch charms. The more you order the more you save, so 500 charms would be $3.50 each. They can have three different sizes: 1 inch 1.5 inches and 2 inches - so prices vary by size and amount ordered.
