Hey Gang,

I have volunteered to handle this years glasses for the WCSS.

I need some opinions/feedback. Please respond to the following questions in as concise a fashion as possible.....

1. Type of Glass: Mug or Pint Glass?

A lot of folks, although very fond of their WCSS6 Mugs find them better for storing change or bottlecaps of simply sitting on a shelf. To me, pint glasses would get used almoast daily.

2. Type of "decoration"? Sandblast Etched or Screen Printed?

Sandblast Etch pros: Cool, 3 dimensional logo or graphic, customizable, ie you can have your name on the glass/mug

Sandblast Etch cons: Expensive, design can only be 1 color and not too detailed

Screen Printed pros: Multiple color printing, more elaborate and detailed graphics, inexpensive

Screen Printed cons: No easy way to customize with name

3. Which logo do you like from this thread http://www.ultimates...79&page=1&pp=10

In terms of pricing, I'm just estimating right now but heres my guess

Mugs Etched with name $15 or so
Printed without name $9 ish

Pint Glasses Etched with name $12 or so
Printed without name $7 ish

let the opinions and 2 cents throwing begin.....

I liked the look of the mugs from last year, so I'd like that. I'd also like to see the sandblast etched.

Either way, mark me down for 1 with my name on it.:lol:

1. Pint Glasses

2. I think screen printed would be pretty rad... assuming it holds up to dishwashing and such. Engraved would be fine though

3. I vote for TEX6. I'm currently getting some quotes on getting that design screened onto shirts.

I'm in for 2. Names: Monica and Mr. Monica

I too prefer etched. Mug or pint doesn't matter to me. Personalized as well.

My choices are,
OZ5
Q2
SJ8
__________________________________________________________________
NOTE

I added numbers to each logo for easier identification.

I am trying to get the poll function added to this forum. If/when it does I will construct a poll for it.

Good start Garner. Keep up with it though as time flies and the show is less than 4 months away.

Yes, a real poll would be helpful.

So far etched pints are in the lead. It might not be too big a deal to do both pints and mugs....we'll see

Etched pints would be nice, dont want to use it-might break.
Need to be different from last years.
Choice of name would be the same as last years. Might buy a few without names this year, for use.

Both types are acceptable, but I'm leaning toward the mug...12-16 ounce size would be optimal.

Prefer etched (for "voting" purposes).

No opinion or preference on logo design.

Definitely in for a personalized unit.

I'm told that I should stick to plastic glasses and should really consider bifocals. My current glasses look like Coke bottles. :-p

I'm going crazy paging though the samples. Anyone up to putting all the possible logos on one or two pages? Make it a poll that's easier to select and view.

I really like my mug, but it is true, I never use it. Maybe a large pint would be better. I'd like screen printing as opposed to last years etching, unless we decide on a mug, then etching would be better. Not that my vote is very helpful or anything... :drunk:

EVen though I won't be there this year, I want some more beer mugs :D Those came in lots of handy when I went over to the neighbors house with Caboobaroo the first weekend I was here :brow: Learned the hard way my alcohol tolerance at 7200' isn't what it is at sea level :drunk:


And my vote is for etched, although I don't much care either way pint or mug (maybe option of either one??) and of course, with names Hondasucks and Honda's 86 Brat

I'd like it etched, and a pint would be fine by me. Any idea what logo your going to use? I would suggest trying to get a few extra's, Im sure they'd sell out at the show.

I say an etched pint is my vote. No preference really on the logo. Want a name on mine and Shannons of course.

Just make sure the glass is stout enough that the etching wont weaken it too much.

Damn, democracy is hard.

I have made my choice based on some feedback in this thread and my own desires.....


Etched Pints it is.

Going to have to try a few different logos to see what works best for the process. Hopefully the artist(s) of said logos will not mind me tweaking them to make them work.....

I vote 16oz Pint glasses - large enough to hold a bottle of beer and its head.

...unless the beer garden has a keg/tap, then mugs are fine and will be used appropriately Posted Image (p.s. Light beer is not appropriate)
