Something seems anticlimactic here. Anyone could have done this. What am I missing??


Is This a Club?


Hello and membership card question.

Jeff is going to make a sticky for this as time permits. I got this done with Ernie and Mark's help.

I believe there has to be some more official look to this thing. This is as generic as it gets. We waited and talked about this for some time and to slap this together is not doing it justice. Not to take away anything Chuck did. But there are designers here and they show up at contest time why not have a thread started with accepting ideas of how this should look. Unless people are using card stock of some sort it would look pretty cheap on just a piece of paper. Maybe incorporate this into a contest for the Summer thing.

Put some boarders on it. Have a pen design in it like the contests do. Maybe put the info on the back which includes the membership number. Not sure if these can be liscensed or officiated in some way so that they can not be copied by just anyone. As I said something does not look right here. We can do better than this.

Need to edit this because no sooner did I write this I see Terradex (John) did a little improvising and looks good but we can do better still and need an official card that is uniform so that it gets recognised like Mastercard. What would it cost to have printed up on plastic to make it look official. Send them out at Bash time when we do the mug drive and anyone that just wants one alone makes a small donation.

JT..........Step up to the plate. You say anyone could do this.
Instead of being a complainer.........show us what you can do.

Otherwise............STFU!

This is somewhat related to this post. I am a Gwinnett Woodworkers Member (despite only making pens and some bottle stoppers). I called Hartsville Hardware 2 years ago and asked if they would give 15% off to GWA members (and free shipping of course). They said sure. I have used that discount many times. A board member of the GWA simply sends Hartsville a member list and that is all there is to it. I do pay $50 annually to be a member (but I get 10% off from most WW stores). I AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT IAP CHARGES A FEE (not yelling, just emphasizing). However, giving Hartsville a call may not be such a bad idea.

Thanks Chuck for making the cards. I appreciate your time and effort.

Thats mature Wayne!
I see Ernie has really taken an edge lately to anything I say. Not sure what I ever did to him but you get put on the list too. Can no one make any comments without taking offense. Chuck put it together and yes that is cool but again we hold contests here that make logos for the year why could we not open up the conversation again and have suggestions. AGAIN I AM NOT A DESIGNER Where is our creativeness as a group.

Do you see my logo at the bottom of my pages. I created that and had a logo company make it into a design. I can tell you what I want but do not know how to put it all together. Is that what you want me to do??

Jt, people are tired of your trash talk. Its always, you can do it better. And it's every thread. Im tired of reading it. Either step up to the plate or quit criticizing. I wont respond anymore to this thread.
