Q: Free TMW stickers for SASE or $5 donation?

#1 Unread post by totalmotorcycle » Wed Jun 08, 2011 4:18 am

My plan is to make up some FREE Total Motorcycle stickers to give away to those who would like some (professionally done of coruse) and I am looking at some possibilites:

1. How willing would you be to send a self addressed stamped envelope in exchange for a couple of free TMW stickers?

2. Would you rather I mail the free TMW stickers to you in exhange for a $5 donation?

3. Your suggestion. (no, I can't afford free stickers and free shipping, after all, the site is free already).

The goal would be to get some great TMW stickers out there to share with friends or put on your bike or your toolbox or stick on a sign ect.

Suggestions and opinions wanted!

Donation--I'm horrible about actually mailing things out and who wouldn't want to start selling stickers online to pay for his more risque hobbies?

True that, but TMW has never been about profit (or making money first unlike almost every site out there), I do it to support motorcycling and motorcyclists worldwide figuring if TMW can help milllions then it would be beneficial to us all rather than just to me.

I don't mind giving the stickers away free (which would be at a loss) but the donation would be towards shipping and handling and say up to 5 stickers at no cost.

In the next week I'll be getting the order ready to be printed. I'll put some logos up and you can decide which one(s) you like as a sticker the best. :D

Any chance of either lapel pin for my riding jacket or a long sleeve shirt or sweat shirt?

Not for the same price but would add some practicality to the donation. I have no problem putting in some $$. I know stickers are easier to sell but I don't like putting stickers on my cage. Maybe a $5 donation with option for you to keep the sticker.

I can look into a lapel pin, I haven't thought about it before but it is a good idea considering I even have a few myself! I can understand not wanting to put stickers on your cage, I was thinking sticking them in other places (no, don't go there) like on the tool box or around the garage, house, laptop, road sign, you name it. Consider them "where would be cool to stick this stickers". :D

Let me look into the lapel thing...

I would make a donation for lapel and stickers. I might even add more if it gets your monitor raised to a higher level....

I'm a t-shirt kind of person and rarely put stickers on anything, but were I inclined, I would rather donate...

Weren't there t-shirts at some point? I could really go for a brightly colored TMW t-shirt...

No matter what token is given, an option of a traditional donation should be included for those that just want to give. Just my 2 cents ---That's a Joke.

I think some 'swag' for any donation might be a nice addition - ppl can donate whatever amount and it earns them some 'appreciative swag' :D
still recovering - back to crutches, then walking with a stick, then running - then hopefully riding again!

Donation is the way to go. I know it's not about profits, but it's also not about a completely free ride either. I love the way you've handled the structure of your site, but I would have gotten a donation before giving full access to the site. Not a huge amount, but to either get an ad free version, or just complete access... Good thing it's not my site eh???!!!

Donations accepted here at par: walloffame.htm but you already know that, you are my #1 donater! Maybe someone will step up and beat you for first place? :D

Glad you like the structure of the site, I try to keep it simple. :D Hmmm, what do you mean by "complete access" everyone has full access when they register (I'm confused)...

Yup, TMW T-shirts, I still have them and they are unfortunately still in storage some 8,000 miles west of me. Bightly colored ones? HELL YA!

Here they are: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/shopping ... andise.htm can't wait to get them out and sell them once again.

Donations accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365/366 days a year here: walloffame.htm no donation too small or too big.

Great idea. I used to give out TMW motorcycle stickers (top quality ones that I paid $$$ so it wouldn't hurt paint and you could peel it off years later, but again, they are in storage). And FREE T-shirts too for those higher donations. Right now, you get a nice Rank Tag, a place on the Sight Supporter List and a warm fuzzy feeling by helping TMW help millions of riders.


Whew. Now off to bed and call it a day, it's 12:03am and it's time to stop working.

I'm sure I am in the minority here giving away everything for free and full access and the majority would agree with you. Guess I'm just nutz! :crazy:
