Is the WGA interested in having a store with logo items of just about any kind? One of my co-workers has a little side business where he makes excellent mugs, travel mugs, license plate covers, poker chips (like a white coin), you name it and he charges about half of the cafe press prices. He can even personalize it with your caching name or event name on the back side for no additional charge. He has no set-up fees, no minimum order and he lives in Superior so you can pick stuff up to save shippping. I had some mugs made by him and gave them away at a recent event so some area cachers have them and can vouch for how nice they are. Just thought I'd put it out here in case you wanted something like that. I can give his info to anyone who wants it through PM.

No one is interested in having WGA stuff? His large mugs are only $6 and the small ones are $5. The design is set into the finish of the mug so it never comes off in the dishwasher. Do I have to give one away so you can see how nice they are? Wink

I was giving someone else the chance to respond before mentioning that we had a Cafe Press store for quite a long time and didn't sell much of anything, if anything at all. If we do decide to go down that road again, we already have an online store also.

How about some pictures of some of the stuff that he has done for other people, might be nice to see some sample ideas.

I'd be interested in WGA merchandise. I visited the cafepress site once and I remember at the time thinking that there wasn't much being offered. Maybe I'm not remembering right? I visited right before it disappeared, though, so maybe there used to be more stuff.

I will post some photos of mugs he's done for me. He does one-off stuff and two sided mugs for no extra so I order stuff all the time for different activities I'm into. He's making 5 mugs for me to give away at our leap year event with a coin design. The front of the coin on one side and the back on the other. Instead of the tracking number on the coin I put the cache even GC number. I did that for another even we did and they turned out pretty cool. Cafe Press charges $12 or $13 for the same mug he charges $6 for and his have the image in the finish of the cup so it never comes off. I'll take some pics and post later. He calls his company Aunt V's Expressions and he has some pics of work he's done on his website if you Google that name.

Your logo would look very cool on a regular mug or travel mug to bring out caching in the field.
