These people have indicated interest in going forward with this project. I have indicated what I perceived as their preference. But if I "perceived wrong", let me know so I can adjust things. @Enrico - Yes for the small batch / local potter @cliffb599 - Yes for the small batch / local potter @kjbarth - Yes for the small batch / local potter @RyX - Yes for the small batch / local potter It's my intent to keep this list updated. Check back from time to time to see where we're at with this. Interest Poll: Those in favor of a shave mug type with more convservative "printed" lettering. @RyX @cliffb599 Desired price point range (No more than) $0 - $10 $10-$20 $20-$30 $20-$40 1 $30-$40 1 $40-$50 $50-$60 More than $60 Update 11/07/2019 There has been no more interest expressed beyond the 4 shown above. There has been "some" interest, again about 4 +/- in a "shaving" mug similar to what a commercial site used to have for sale. I've emailed them to see what, if anything, can be found out about that aspect. More when/if I know more...... There comes a time in life when you pose a question and it heads in a direction you weren’t expecting. This TSD Mug/Cup/Stein thing did that for/to me! But, be that as it may, I shall forge forward. And, in doing so, I humbly ask for the understanding, cooperation, and assistance of you fine folks here in “The Shave Den.” A quick catch up before I get into the meat of this. Back in February of this year, 2019, @Missing Lynx, a member on TSD, was taking a favorite mug out of the dishwasher when he noticed the logo of the manufacturer on the bottom. Liking how the logo on that cup had been handled, he thought about the possibility of a TSD mug/cup. So, he started the thread “TSD Fundraising idea that may have just fizzled” in “The Chatterbox” forum here on TSD. As you can imagine, discussion ensued. To keep from rehashing things that have already been discussed, click on the following link to catch up on what was said then. To read the original thread click TSD Fundraising idea that may have just fizzled As you can see, there was some interest, but no one took the reins to see what it would take to get it going. @Missing Lynx has since gone silent, at least of this writing in mid-October of 2019. Thanks are extended to him for his beginning of this idea. Fast forward to the present. I asked about a TSD cup one day and was pointed to the thread that had been started previously along with a couple of mentions that I could be the one to see what interest might be present. Since I’d taken the liberty of asking for a no obligation quote from the company that made the one @Missing Lynx had and since he was no longer actively participating, I said “what the heck.” Now to what I’ve found out so far about this. In the hopes of keeping this more readable, I’m going to try to include each aspect of this in a separate post so the resulting posts will be shorter and hopefully more readable.
