So your gonna make a pf banner with that on it? @Dustin

2017-12-01 17:45:07 UTC  

Sure. It might just be a simple stencil with rods.

2017-12-01 17:46:56 UTC  

I can make a custom stencil and mail it if y'all cover postage

2017-12-01 18:00:25 UTC  

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

2017-12-01 18:00:46 UTC  

We could also get one printed.

2017-12-01 18:19:45 UTC  

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.

2017-12-01 18:22:01 UTC  

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.

2017-12-01 18:25:13 UTC  

I have been thinking about that.

2017-12-01 18:25:56 UTC  

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.

2017-12-01 18:26:51 UTC  

The prices for these things vary, from a few grand to over 10k.

2017-12-01 18:27:28 UTC  

I have been looking for a used one. No luck yet, though.

2017-12-01 18:37:15 UTC  

$31 and some change to get one well printed, if someone wants to whip up a design.

2017-12-01 18:37:20 UTC  

I'm happy to pay for it.

2017-12-01 18:37:42 UTC  

My dimensions are 7' wide, 2' high, but that can change as needed.

2017-12-01 18:44:15 UTC  

We could expand to "Build the wall. Deport them all."

2017-12-01 19:27:07 UTC  

@dustin#4380 I think I am also going to make my banner say "Deport them all!"

2017-12-01 19:27:26 UTC  

Sancuary City Chicago get fukt.

2017-12-01 19:42:57 UTC  

@Dustin reach out to RAM maybe one of the goys in there would halo you out idk

2017-12-01 19:43:55 UTC  

The only thing I'm unsure about is the design. Thomas and Josh are better at that than I am.

2017-12-01 19:45:37 UTC  

Yeh get thomas to make one for you or sowmthing.

2017-12-01 19:49:39 UTC  

https://kek.gg/i/5wTQw.png We need a guy in SF.

2017-12-01 20:18:07 UTC  

@Dustin DM me the dimensions and resolution you want and I'm game

2017-12-01 20:20:17 UTC  

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.

2017-12-01 20:28:05 UTC  

Should our ballcaps be tan, dark blue, dark grey?

2017-12-01 20:29:46 UTC  

Dark blue

2017-12-01 20:34:21 UTC  

@502ssOtto If you can make stencils, I would order them from you.

2017-12-01 20:35:58 UTC  

I can cut up to 20" wide

2017-12-01 20:36:14 UTC  

Past 120" long can get squirrelly

2017-12-01 20:36:30 UTC  

Holly shit how come I'm just hearing about you and custom stencils?

2017-12-01 20:36:43 UTC  

Just send me the image you want and size

2017-12-01 20:37:41 UTC  

@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.

2017-12-01 20:38:57 UTC  

Yup. I've got it on order.

Too big to unfurl and show the whole thing. This is the bottom portion.

2017-12-03 05:40:23 UTC  

All I smell is paint

2017-12-03 05:40:51 UTC  

That looks wonderful. What is that fabric?
