Hello.

I've sent out lots of PMs to people who have expressed interest.

I've sent two paypal funding requests. If I've missed you, please pm me and I'll send you a paypal request right away.

Regards,

Randy

Sorry, I can't take credit for the lettering source or doing the research. Fellow member The Veg did this and gave me permission to use his work to make a batch.

And there you have it. A true Elan forum community project: three of us in it so far. :mrgreen:

Thanks, Scott, for the update, and The Veg :D

Okay, third set in the mail; that means 6 remaining.

Again, if you're interested . . .
- selling to the US: $29CA + $2.95CA + PayPal fees (3.7% + $.30CA) = $33.45CA
- selling to the UK: $29CA + $5.90CA + PayPal fees (3.9% + $.35CA) = $36.65CA

PM me your email address, and full mailing address. I will send you a paypal funding request.

Regards,

Randy

Thanks, Veg.

Okay, update: label sets 4 & 5 are now spoken for. That leaves 4 sets left.

Send me your email address so I can send you a paypal request, and then include your full mailing address, and we're on the way :mrgreen:

Regards from Surrey (west coast of Canada)

Randy.

Just to confirm I have received the labels.

I must say a big thanks for your efforts in arranging the manufacture of these Label Sets.

Ordered and paid $36.65 CAD (£22) on the 25 July, mailed in Surrey Canada on the 26, received today UK on the 31 July.
They were very well packed to protect from any damage.

Impressed, thank you. :D

Now to work out what goes where? :roll:

Ummm . . . wow. Who knew that Canadian and British postal systems were that efficient. And careful with our packages, too! :lol:

Thanks, Trevor, for letting me know. I had hoped the card stock and plastic would be rigid enough. Good to know.

Okay . . . so I've had interest in sets 6 & 7. If payment follows, that would mean there would only be 2 sets of labels left.

Send me your email so I can send you a paypal fund request. That's all there is to it.

Regards, Randy

ps. No profit made on these labels; just cost of production and postage. :mrgreen:

Greetings,

Still receiving interest for these labels, and sending out paypal funding requests.

Wanted to let everyone know that I do feel obliged to send labels in the order that I receive funding, not the order in which I receive interest/requests. Just a friendly reminder. :mrgreen:

I believe there are only 3 sets left.

Regards to all, and a safe summer,

Randy

Okay, off to post office now with latest 3 sets, and that means only one set left.

Thanks for your support. Regards,

Alright. Just back from the post office. All nine sets are now bought and paid for, in the mail and/or delivered. :D I do hope those which are still in transit arrive safely. At this point, the only recourse I have for non-delivery is a refund :shock:

Thanks so much for taking these things off my hands. I appreciate your support. Just looking back over the invoice from the printer . . . Printing one set of these labels isn't possible; they fit three sets to a sheet. Plus there is about $55 in set-up fees. The only reasonable way to do it is in bulk.

So thank you again for making this order possible.

I don't see any reason why in the future we couldn't do another run of labels, and if the layout/image doesn't change at all, we would save some of that $55 set up fee.

Perhaps next summer I will revisit/bump this thread and see if there is sufficient interest to go at this again.

In any case, best wishes to all, thanks for this wonderful forum which makes ownership both fun and possible . . .

Thank you Randy.

In case there is some interest in getting some sets in red, like I believe was originally offered for the US market at some point, I'd be interested to redo my Federal S4se...

I'm trying to imagine that, Nic. Very interesting.

My guess, from what I understand of the printing process, is that red would not be a problem, though it would involve an entire sheet (3 sets of labels) being done in red.

So next summer . . . :D Could be that we will have a built up demand again ?
