Podcat’s EGC Tribute

I don’t know how I missed this until now, but I found this link on Podcat about me and my dropping the term audioblog. The suggestion is to use “pog”, which I can’t say I like in this context. What I do like is the mocked up pog in the style of the doodads from the early 90’s. How much does it cost to get coasters made? That would be awesome. I like this design a lot and am highly flattered that someone would bother to do this. Thank you!

  1. for 10,000 is the cheapest (and the smallest minimum order) I could find after looking for about 10 minutes on the web. Doesn’t look like small runs are terribly profitable or at least the various manufacturers aren’t interested.

    What am I doing actually looking up the answer to rhetorical questions, you might ask. I don’t know.

  2. Wow, that’s about $640 more than I’d be willing to put into such a thing. I guess I’ll just look the the JPG and dream a little dream of watching my mint julep glass sweat frosty condensation into such a thing.

  3. Hi, Dave:
    You can’t argue that $.066 per unit is that much; the problem lies in having to buy a gazillion of ’em. I found a couple of smaller lots places, with an accompanying increase in per-unit cost:
    http://www.cafepress.com makes promotional materials in small lots, but the closest thing they’ve got to pogs is a 2.25 inch round magnet. One is $1.25, 10 can be had for $10.00, and 100 fetch $75.00.

    offers the full line of spiffy, heavy-duty barlike coasters, that can be purchased in lots as small as 500 units, at prices between $0.21 and $0.28 per unit. They’ve also got a line of “Wedding and event coasters”, minimum 1000 units at $0.09/unit. I thought these were a little bit tacky.

    Finally, I have a son-in-law in LA who is a graphics designer; I’d be glad to forward the specs to him, and see what he could do with it.

    My opinion is that any New Thing(tm) deserves the appropriate style and amount of swag.

  6. I’ve decided then whenever I wish to reply to anyone’s blog post, that if the response exceeds a line or two, I’ll craft the response in an external editor, and paste that into the website form. This should eliminate the trail of dreck I posted up above. I’ve seen other people do the same thing, and thought “What a jackass”. I have met the jackass, and he is me.

  7. Ken, I saw all of your comments come through fine. That’s cool that these could actually be feasible, if a pretty low priority in the scheme of things. I would like to get t-shirts though. Why not, I think? I just sent around a XMas list with an Achewood “Everybody Dance Like There’s Ass in your Pants” shirt on it. If I could have a shirt that cool, I’d be a happy man.
