Sure. It might just be a simple stencil with rods.
I can make a custom stencil and mail it if y'all cover postage
The only thing I don't have *if* we wanted to use it, is the PF fascio. But if it's just a grommet banner with stencils, I can make that
We could also get one printed.
Rather than paying a ton of money for each banner to be printed, perhaps we could purchase a wide format fabric printer, and do it ourselves for significantly less. We could get that money back by printing banners for other groups.
I have been thinking about this for a while, but right now I am working on buying a large-ish color laser office printer for flyers.
That's an interesting idea. It wouldn't be cheap I'm guessing. The professional ones are also massive. Not sure who'd be willing to house it.
I have been thinking about that.
I am considering leasing some space in a warehouse, so if that happens, I could house it, and feed it the 240 it would need.
The prices for these things vary, from a few grand to over 10k.
I have been looking for a used one. No luck yet, though.
$31 and some change to get one well printed, if someone wants to whip up a design.
I'm happy to pay for it.
My dimensions are 7' wide, 2' high, but that can change as needed.
We could expand to "Build the wall. Deport them all."
@dustin#4380 I think I am also going to make my banner say "Deport them all!"
Sancuary City Chicago get fukt.
@Dustin reach out to RAM maybe one of the goys in there would halo you out idk
The only thing I'm unsure about is the design. Thomas and Josh are better at that than I am.
Yeh get thomas to make one for you or sowmthing.
@Dustin DM me the dimensions and resolution you want and I'm game
Wide fabric printers would be nice, but if we, as an org, have a good few grand to spend, we may have a few things higher up the list to purchase for our guys. The hardest part is that Paypal platforms everything, and aside from Bitcoin, there's no reliable way to make transactions on a certain scale without making your own full shell of a business around the org that turns into a bureaucracy.
Should our ballcaps be tan, dark blue, dark grey?
I can cut up to 20" wide
Past 120" long can get squirrelly
Holly shit how come I'm just hearing about you and custom stencils?
Just send me the image you want and size
@Dustin The caps we have set for folks to buy have a velcro patch on the front for patches, for when we get around to printing some custom flag/logo patches for them.
Yup. I've got it on order.
@everyone The Practical Activism Guide for postering and bannering, as well as other tips and helpful guidelines for your activism.
Great iteration. Nice choice of photos too.
Actually, im probably going to just cut them my self tonight.
Too big to unfurl and show the whole thing. This is the bottom portion.
All I smell is paint
That looks wonderful. What is that fabric?
