    Gauging interest.. Thinking of making some tote bags with Rick's rig. Will probably be limited to black in color bags and white graphic. The chairs at this point I'm not sure of cause I need to find a cheaper vendor that who I currently use.

    Well choice number 1 is about $3 higher in cost than the other option.. I'm gonna order a few and do a test run to see how well the low heat applied vinyl adheres to it and if they actually are okay after having heat applied to them.. Stay tuned..
    Pricewise, I'm gonna try to stay around $10 before shipping.

    ...Just a thought..:scratch:...Could members send in the backs of their folding chairs and have you install the logo's??

    ...I'm not sure I would ever use one of those peachy bags but, I could use a couple new medium size trail bags with zippers and zipped side pouches...:D

    Okay on the bags.. We've got a few choices.. We can use either use a single compartment duffel bag or multi-compartment (zippered) bag.

    Singe style

    Choice 1
    18x10
    [​IMG]

    Choice 2
    16x9x9
    [​IMG]

    Multi-compartment

    Choice 1
    24x12x11
    [​IMG]

    Choice 2
    24x12.5x10
    [​IMG]


    Cost wise the singe compartment style ones would result in the bags being around $12 or so before shipping.. The multi ones would be pushing closer to $22 before shipping.

    The duffle bags make way more sense. They will be light and compact enough to ship cheaply, the chairs will be big and heavy, not to mention you can get folding chairs for like $9.99-$19.99 all over the place, but they don't seem to get much use except maybe by those who regularly go camping or attend outdoor events.

    Going by the poll results, you'll probably sell 100+ bags easy. I doubt it'd be worth your while to go through the hassle to sell just a few chairs.

    I think it would look best on the front pocket, vs the top flap.

    I'd pay extra for name/username on the top flap :D
