I though this might help in our little PR campaign:


Based off the avatar I made myself... but it lacks color, so I might give it some later. For now I like the vintage look. Useful for sticking on your myspace, website, or w/e. Lemme know what you think!

That's pretty cool. Like the kinda thing you'd have in your signature... well, on another forum.

Right! You could use it as a sig on this forum, but that'd just be preaching to the choir Smile

Wow, I'm glad you guys like it! Here's a near finished version that I'm a little happier with (changed a few things layout wise).
If you want a hi-resolution version to print out, just PM me and I can email it to you!


I like this, bar for the "All hope abandon...". We know what it refers to, but it could be a bit off putting to anyone who doesn't get it.

That aside, shoudl it not be "a forum for", rather than "a forum of", as TGA don't sponsor it?

I like the banner too, but I also liked Emyr's work.

I think it's pretty spot on. I like the 'All Hope Abandon...' part, people who know the song won't care, and people who do might find it interesting.

Good work team!

Haha, I forgot about the "for/of" thing. I actually changed it when I did the banner. I'm aware of it, just forgot is all. Will be fixed soon.

As for the sign... I'll think about it. Those who get it will love the reference. I see how it could be a put-off, but.... I'll try to change it but still work it in somehow. Let you know.

And as for the banner vs Emyr's stuff, it's not a replacement. Her's was to replace this site's top banner. Mine's for placing as a small ad on other sites.

sorry, I missed that

yes, a banner add would be useful

any chance of making it an animated one that shows at least two images, as they attract more attention?

love the wording tdwag!
t-shirts/badges is definately something we should look into cos it would be nice to know if there other people from the forum at the next TGA gig you go to. i ended up looking a bit weird at the gig at the forum when i asked a few people if they were off the forum! they weren't but at least i introduced them to it!! if it was a badge it would need to be fairly striking either a brighter colour or an obvious graphi so it can be spotted easily. what dya think?

I was thinking, t-shirts would be neat... and buttons would work but I'm not sure I'd wear one at a concert.
But what about something like custom wristbands? (you know, wrist towels guitarists and punk kids wear). Not even anything fancy, just maybe a black one that says "Dimestore Saints.com" in white on it. Our members will know to look for it and we can spot each other!

I've been browsing the web, sort of pricing it out. If anyone finds a good deal, lemme know! I'm also going to check with my local sports store to see if they can do it.
I figure the best way to do it logistically is have one person buy them all and everyone pays them back. We'll see once we can find a decent price.

Thanks, but I was thinking something more along the lines of this:
http://sertopbands.com/2009/06/10/custom-cotton-sports-wristbands/

I've got one for guitar and one for tennis. They're a bit cooler than the plastic LiveStrong knockoffs, IMO.

Band related?


As for wristbands etc, I thought about just plain tshirts with 'Dimstoresaints.com' on the front and back, but wristbands, or something professionally done, seems a bit classier!

I like the sound of the wristbands, made me think of the fabric bands you get at festivals.
