Well if we put two of our logos on the coin then not only would they make cool geocoins but we could hand them out kinda like a business card.  Just my 1.273957263405 cents worth. happy061.gif

We'll get that inforamtion at the design stage. They'll send us a proof for us to authorize before production.

Here's my first choice for mfg:

If your item is not at that size, they will fix it for you, It will just take a little longer.

Rocky said 250 (thats their minimum amount) cost 1400 dollars.   :scared:  That aint going to work. We got to find them cheaper.

Maybe we could have a rubber stamp made and stamp them ourselves. Use wood and indelible ink.

We dont need 250. or printed on both sides or several colors.

I like both these ideas right here, maybe both sides camo, or just like they are, one side camo and one side black.

I was checking out their site too Swede.  I might see if they can put my Super Squirrel image on a coin with the Wildsurvive logo on the back. :thumbup:

Coin Size     100     250     500     1000+
1.0" (25mm) Coin    $1.87    $1.57    $1.27    $0.97
1.5" (38mm) Coin    $2.07    $1.97    $1.87    $1.73
1 5/8" (42mm) Coin    $2.57    $2.47    $2.37    $1.97
1.75" (45mm) Coin    $2.77    $2.67    $2.57    $2.07
2.0" (50mm) Coin    $3.27    $3.17    $2.97    $2.57

Oak coins. They dont have wood. So 1.5 inch would work 100@ 2.07= $ 207.00  2.07 apiece.

We need to turn in both designs but Im thinking the coins are not colored. I think they will sell them for you so any member wanting some can just order them from oak coins. However it kinda looks like Im going to pay the 200 bucks. We''ll have to figure that out but it would save me from more trips to the post office.

I sent the first design and asked if they had colors at the price quoted. The first design didnt leave a place for the tracking no. Im a member at geocashing.com.

Just one side unless they print both sides at the price quoted.

They can do a hundred with this design>



They got a standard stamp for the back>

Eric,
 
I am attaching a quote for 100 coins with only one die side.  However, we do have a standard die that you can use for the other side at no additional charge.  It has a place for the tracking information, so we wouldn't have to try and squeeze that in on the front.  I am attaching a copy of the artwork for that.  Please let me know what you think.
 
You can use color on the coin.  You are able to use up to 10 colors on each side with no additional charge.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you would like to move ahead with this coin project.
 
Thanks,
Sara

Total   $3.32/coin   $332.00   

If you would like to make sample coins before going to full production, there will be a $20 fee (plus $10 - $18 shipping) for basic samples, which would allow you to see your coin in two different finishes.  If you are interested in more than two finishes for the samples, let us know and we can provide you with pricing.

We will also be happy to work with Groundspeak to arrange tracking on your behalf.  Here is a summary of the Groundspeak charges for 100 codes:

 
100 Groundspeak tracking codes   $150.00   

Our quotes are valid for 30 days. We make our coins with a copper or bronze base metal, not zinc, to ensure the highest quality.   Please let us know if you need your coins for an event or specific date. Please be aware that securing permission for the use of trademarks or copyrighted material is the responsibility of the customer.

Thanks!

It costs another 150 dollars to have them tracked. Too much. We dont need them tracked any how. This is just for advertisement. If they want to tell us they found it they can come here and tell us.

We can pick some colors for the front. Maybe a brown boot print.

Swede,

See if they will stamp sequential numbers on them and we can start a thread about the coins. Whoever finds one can at least track the # here on the site. Say for instance #24 was found in Ohio, #2 was found in Alaska, etc. etc. We don't need them to be tracked on geocache.com. Just have SK revise the front to say "Log this coin at wildsurvive.com" Then who ever finds it can log on here and we can have a thread "stickied" to the front.

How's about them apples poncho?
