since the banner has been quite popular....the guy who did the banner sent me an email asking if we wanted to print up some other items to give to members and such.

ie tug bumper stickers, or little tug decals, or other tug items that could be printed on a small sticker or vinyl paper etc. maybe even some of those "oil change" type static stickers?

what would some of you guys be interested in? (new ideas will be added to the poll as they come in!)

Bumper stickers etc that go on cars don't appeal to me;TUG is the sort of thing I would want to brag about while on vacation. Perhaps instead some pre-printed business-card sized invitations to join TUG, with a blank to write in our referral email?

I have thought about printing business cards myself, with the website address and my username. Gotta get that lifetime membership. :D I have a few referrals, just need a few more.

Doesn't it take ten referrals for the TUG lifetime membership?

Gee, I've always liked the logo. Of course, the palm tree is my favourite category of flora, and invokes images of warm sunny climes! :D

I think the logo is okay, but it might be better if the graphic was smaller and the TUG was bigger. I don't like to have advertisement on my car or clothes but I will wear a small descreet logo of something I believe in (especially to timehare presentations!) :ignore:

I think thats a good look for a sticker.The TUG font,blue and red colors with the white backround will look very familiar.Now if only we can get you to put back the life preserver avatar back.

ok...so the printer guy gets back next week and im going to have some samples of each of these made (obviously the small sticker seems to be the favorite)

Ill be giving these out to various members, need some ideas on contests to award these as prizes.

they arent super expensive or anything, so im not looking for extremely complex or detailed contests...just something simple where the winners will get these items. based on that we can have more made and continue on with it.

Whos got some ideas (best ideas will win stickers...see how easy this is???)

I was thinking any of the people who participated in the banner can pick an item of their choosing for the first one.

What else can we think of? longest thread of the week/month? (whoever started the photo thread deserves 2 prizes now that I think about it!)

talk to me goose! whats a fun way to give these things out once made?

Oval Stickers In O. B. X. Style


-- hotlinked --

There are those who think the oval OBX-style stickers have jumped the shark.

Not me.

I think stickers like that have become a standard format.

So what TUG ought to print & distribute is oval OBX-style stickers in black & white, with a small curved line of print below the 3 capital letters saying Timeshare Users Group - [I]www.tug2.net[/I]

Printa-Printa-Printa.

Outstanding !

Accordingly, in the poll I vote for None Of The Above -- unless the bumper sticker option includes the black-&-white oval OBX-style design.

Plus, when the printer has the oval-sticker design all completed & ready to go, TUG should make it available (members only -- password, etc.) for printing out at home via the TUG web page.

The problem I see with this is that in all honesty it would probably go unused if left up to the user to go down to the local office supply store to purchase the special type of printer sticker paper and then come home and print it out. Also, not everyone is computer savvy and would understand how to down load the image to print it out or align it correctly for their printer.

Why would you want a TUG advertisement be for members only? :shrug:

Too Simple ?

Shux, I'll just print'm out on regular paper & place'm on the insides of the car windows with the printed side next to the glass.

Plus, I expect TUG members to be more mindful of the best ways to use TUG promotional materials than the non-members, advertising & non-advertising mox nix.
