Post by: spudie on April 20, 2009, 07:27:44 PM
Howdy,

Does anyone know when and where we can order the mugs/mousepads/etc of our mokes from MokeFest?

Cheers,

Spudie.

I spoke to Terry before I left and he was the man to make your orders to.
I plan on getting a couple and have neglected to contact him yet.

I guess ill just post my interest here and let him tell the story.

A list was started and money exchanged at MC over the week-end and Terry now has that list, however I'm sure he will be keen to add to the list provided your Moke was photographed in the photo booth.
I was lucky enough to have my moke done as a trial and the 3 mugs now are pride of place in 3 separate rooms in Tassie, never to see the inside of the dishwasher.

Hi,

Yes i will be taking orders for the stuff once i get the issue with the printer sorted out and i find everyones photos.

MMM, I actually did your Mugs as a gift for you and Faye, not a trial, but the next set went to pooh so I gave up trying to get everyones done that morning.

I will let people know when I am ready to start taking orders as I have a list here already of people who prepaid for some Mugs.

Like Rod, I was lucky enough to score some mugs of the Stealth and they look terrific.  Terry, your eye for quality must be keener than mine as they even make the Stealth look good (perhaps thats the problem  :D).
Thanks again Terry.

Yep . . . going to give Terry a couple of days "breathing space" then I'm coming in with the orders.  :D :D

Just to make it a bit easier, I have even done a bit of deep etching on Middie's photo to assist in the endeavour. It's in one of the folders somewhere called Middie or Wiz - can't remember now.

printer it won't fit through the slot. ;D

wants to see it. ;)

Terry,
Was just wandering how things were travelling mug wise?
I'm still keen to getting a mug (or 4) with my moke on it and there are probably others that may have been curious as to the progress of these bad boys.

Samm,

I had just finished a few hours of working on them when I read your post and yes they are coming but i am not sure about the results or the issue of postage yet so needs a bit more thinking/playing involved.

I actually looked at your picture a few hours ago as with the Trailer, which is an integral part of your image, it is going to be tricky to fit on the basic layout I am using.

Hopefully soon.

Terry, if it helps, I recently purchased a number of mugs from Byron Bay, and they were all shipped to me via australia post. They were wrapped in bubble wrap, then each in their individual box - no fractures!

Terry,
Great minds think alike... or its coincidence... either one.

Even if you cropped the trailer out of a couple for the generic sort of layout you are doing (?just moke and logo?) and possible having one on a mug without the Mokefest logo or a small one logo? I dont know how you are doing things so dont want to sounds pushy or clueless about how hard things are. I'm keen on two with my moke and Mokefest logo (if you can swing it with the trailer thats a bonus) and one with the moke + trailer. If i need to order a few more to make it more worth your while ill certainly consider it :) i have a few peoples birthdays coming up  :D

I have bought a couple of mugs offline etc and had them posted to me and they came just wrapped in bubble wrap in a individual box and were fine.

Thanks
Samm

g'day guys,
               feel free to order as many mugs with the "ratster" on them as you want
it won't worry me.

Hi,

I hope to receive a preview of the Movie this week but I have been warned it has a few more tweaks required so it will be soon'ish. Probably save a bit on postage and package it all up together for those who ordered other things.

Smoken,

I hope to have an order section on the new website but at the moment I am just trying to get the process sorted with about the 20 orders i already have and then once they are out of the way then I will be opening it up for others.

I have managed to do about 5 designs today with an average of about 1 hour per car as some just extract easy how they should and for others I just give up and chuck it all away to do again later. The effort is in getting the design and the cost is really in all the equipment so a couple of people have offered to do their own artwork which I will probably go with as it will make it a lot less time consuming for me.

Hi,

Here are a couple of Samples

And if I had a spare moment this is what your Mug and Stubbie holder might look like Smoken. :)

Post by: middie on May 12, 2009, 04:18:39 PM
Looks good Terry. If you can put up the dimensions you require for the mug and stubby holder I can finalise the artwork for Middie. No hurry, just when you finally dig yourself out of the pile of work you are suffocating under. :D :D

Wiz
Title: Re: MokeFest mugs?
Post by: Terry on May 12, 2009, 05:04:54 PM
Wiz,

I start with the image and extract it. I then crop it to just outside the Moke and then save it in whatever size the photo is so i can use it later on with out having to resize it larger and lose definition. For the mugs it then gets altered to 200ppi and then resized to 10cm. For the mouse mat the image of the Moke is 200ppi and 20cm wide.

If you want to send me the images from that point it would make things easier.

From there I apply a special profile for the printing equipment and duplicate it into the 'templates'.

If you want to do your own full Mug image the canvas size is 21.01 x 9.91 at 200ppi with a 5mm 'bleed'(white spaces in from the top and the bottom because of the curve of the Mug) while the left and right can go to the edge of the page.

Mouse Mat is w24.4cm x h20.5cm and the stubby holder is w21.4cm x h11.5cm and no bleed is necessary but looks better to have white around the edges where possible.

Yep . . . it is quite a bit of work doing deep etching on round (tyre) objects.

I have just finished etching Middie (Wiz/MrsWiz) and Middie (Wiz/TurnipBoy) and resized for you. When you are ready I'll send them along. Even managed to throw a pic of Rodger the Bodger into it (although he is facing sideways so had to have him leaning on TB's shoulder :D :D :D :D :D :D).

If you want to zip up a couple of problem Mokes and send them along I'll do a bit of etching for you to help.

So let's "spread the stress". :D :D :D :D

Don't forget a link to the Movie Short Clip. I'm sure everyone who saw it is excited about seeing Turnip Boy and Wiz in full acting mode :D :D :D :D

Plus there was some great voice-over effects which should be preserved for posterity.

Smoken,

I am not suggesting anything is wrong with your Mugs, but would you mind popping out into the garage and painting the Rat a deep dark blue. :)

I have been printing up a few of the mugs and except for one, the rest have been coming up well. I will try an get some photos up soon when i have successfully managed to get a Mouse mat and a stubbie holder.
