    OK, so I ran this idea by the Boss and got the OK. I worked with TSS to get them made up...and this is what we came up with for the NES Community.

    I will have these NES Ovals for sale at any Gun Show that I'm working at for $5 each. Every cent will be donated to Comm2A. I figured what's a better way to spend a little to get a lot?

    SO, if I'm working at a show, come by and pick one up. I only had a 100 made, so I don't know how fast they will go.

    Here's the design that we came up with...

    OK, so if you want, you can send me a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope. I don't have any envelopes, nor do I have any stamps. So, if you PM me for my address, I'll give it to you and you can send me 5 bucks for each sticker you want. I'll send them back in the SASE you provide.

    I'm not doing Paypal for these...if you write a check, make it out to Comm2A.

    DO NOT MAKE THE CHECK OUT TO ME!

    Just know that I have no idea how long it will take to sell these stickers. So if you do write a check, it might be months before it's cashed. I just don't want you to wonder why there's money in your account when you balance the check book. Or forget and it comes out months later when you don't expect it.

    Also, if you're in one of our Group Buys, and you're going to be picking up directly from me...let me know if you want one and I'll bring one with me.

    I suggest you remove "foundation" as this does not appear in the Comm2a name.

    I like the extra little touch at the bottom of the oval.

    Can I just mark it out with a Marker? The Proof was run by Derek and got the OK. I guess I should have asked you guys first...my bad. It's on the part that will be tossed out...and not on the part that will be stuck to whatever it's put onto. Does that matter?

    I think they gave out the ovals at the very very early beginning.

    I'd rather donate $$$ to comm2a and get a kewl sticker than join the NRA and get a bunch of chinese BS. (mind you, i support the NRA, but i support comm2a much more)

    Derek is a Comm2a director. If he said it was OK, it's OK - it's it not worth any "post printing" effort, especially since it is on toss out part as you note. Don't even bother with the marker.

    Very nice work on the design.

    I'll keep an eye open at the gun shows. I'd like to pic one up.

    As an aside, is there any chance someone will make up some stickers with the "shield" logo? My wife wants one for her car.

    I would certainly be in for one or two NES ovals if they were available by mail.

    Thanks C-pher. That's what I call grassroots activism.

    We actually have one. Mrs. BidDaddyAl did a great oval design for us, we just haven't gotten around to having them printed. Devoting bandwidth to that and distributing them just hasn't be a priority consider other things we've got on our plates.

    Who kicked you? it wasn't me.

    You're welcome. It was the easiest way I thought that I could do something to help out.

    I'll tell everyone what.

    If you send me a pre-stamed self addressed envelope and 5 bucks, I'll send one back to you.

    PM me for my address.

    Nice! Not sure if there's already an NES member "in charge" of printing these, but shoot me a PM in the future if you're looking at running some decals and I'll see what I can do (I run some digital printers and plotters at my work.)

    That's awesome for you to do and offer up.

    What is the overall size of the oval and backing so one would send the correct size envelope marked "Photos Do Not Bend" ?

    Standard Envelopes have fit them fine.
