Send them a logo and they'll print it and ship it. Ive ordered from them off ebay before, EXCELENT communication and no shipping fees one you order 3 of them

It would be sweet, Overclockers Club just did a sweet badge, I think SG should. One for SG and One for Folding.:nod: :nod:

If you come up with a logo, i might be able to get us a special deal from the person i orderd from before on a mass order.

DHD, Bouncer, Ken...honey(lol)..Phillip. Sticky this one eh? I'm sure Oxblood, Indy, EA, Chris....somebody could whip up a snazzy logo and get a group discount(we all pitch in). Heck, you could order like 100 and make a small profit on all sold. I'd LOVE a SG sticker fer my comp, and my car ya know?

We're certainly ok with using our logo as long as it is used n connection with the site...

If some of our resident artists can come up with a good idea/logo for a case batch I'm all for it, let me know if I can be of any assistance providing higher quality versions of the current one, etc.

Well, if we plan on using the existing logo a higher res would be helpful. Also we need to know what the dimensions should be. And generally prefered colors from various members seeing as this is not for one person in particular. Also any other specifications that the printer makes. (format to be saved in etc.... BTW, I wouldn't go less than 150 DPI or more than 300 DPI. You are probably not going to see a huge difference between the two unless you are producing larger pieces of work. Anyway, I am going to go out and grab some food and check back in here later to see what's up...

Case batches are 1x1", I'd go with a higher resolution image, 300x300 should do great... The examples @ http://www.teamgod.net/Vortexpc.htm can give you some ideas.

Here are some files you can use:

main SG logo:
http://www.speedguide.net/~philip/misc/sglogo_web3.psd

Fonts used:
http://www.speedguide.net/~philip/misc/Feb_____.ttf
http://www.speedguide.net/~philip/misc/Fe______.ttf

The way I see it, the batch can contain just "SG", or both large "SG" and smaller speedguide.net somewhere... With some nice background images ;)

I'd sure like to see Banshee / Ghost / Chris do one as well... Where did you guys hide ? ;) :D

How about putting the entries to a vote? Get these photoshop and paintshop gurus to work on their finest. I think it'll be a tough call. These guyz do excellent work.

Submit a design on a case badge
Enter it in a poll and vote

This sound like a good idea? I might be way over my head, but i just thought i'd put it out there :D

Thanks guys, Yours is cool Amro, looks great.
Only thing I would change on yours would be to pull it in from the sides a bit, know how them badges are with the clear bubble finish, it may distort a bit at the edges.

Personally after reviewing this thread I think it's a fantastic idea! Nothing like promoting SG.

Has this idea been canceled?

I'll look into a Paypal account for this venture. Only concern: if enough money cannot be collected, hopefully I won't be stuck paying paypal fees to refund the cash.

here's another place that does custom badges.
http://www.securisysagency.com/case_badges_custom.html
Thing is, they'll do 10 of them for $1.90 each. 100 of them would be $89.99, or $.90 each. I'd front the cash to get 100, if everyone really wanted all the same badge (it would be a cool show of unity for SG). I'd ask for payment after I get the badges.
The shipping from that company is free, but if I have to mail them out to everyone who orders, it may be not much less than the $2.00 each.
There's a review:
http://www.modthebox.com/review54_1.html

We'd need a 600dpi, 1" x 1" .bmp of whatever we want to order. My vote is still for Amro's design (although they all are pretty sweet).

http://webpages.charter.net/amromousa/sg_case_badge_amro.jpg

Edit: perhaps some active recruiting in the General Forum would spark some more interest:) Anyone? Anyone? The more that are ordered, the cheaper they get.... (now watch me get stuck with mailing out 10,000 case badges, lol )

12-15-02, 11:38 PM
I printed out a few. The best looking printed version was from the 300 dpi .psd file. The fonts and "swoosh" were bigger, so they could more easily be seen in the 1" x 1" printed format. Good work Amro!

You've done a lot of work... no need to do more. I think the larger font 300 will be easier to see when printed. I'll contact the company and ask what 's the best from their experience.

I am right here :)

Have we all agreed on the design ? ( I like Amro's design as well )

Also, I suppose I can setup a Paypal payment and collect the money, so I get an idea of what quantity to purchase... Then ship the badges when we get them . LMK

Ive been swamped with work, I'm sorry.

600x600 pixels would be a better quality... Not required, but we might as well.
