ok people. I think there is a chance we can get the pins made cheaper than cafepress. we need an image to use first. let's all work together to come up with an image then we can shop around.

I feel the same way about you guys, even though I'm a comparatively new 
(elderly) addition to the 'family'.... ^_^

"Since 2005 is going to mark our ten-year anniversary (counting from the 
meetings at the School of Visual Arts; Metro met less formally as early as 
1994), I 
thought it might be cool to make something tangible to commemorate the 

Fantastic idea! T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and/or baseball caps with a 
newly designed logo ("Metro Anime 10th Anniversary 1995-2005" and some cool 
grafix) would be super, and if you'd like to make a profit we might be able 
to open 
an online store on the Cafe Press site


which is specifically for that sort of creative promotional merchandise.

"My thought is, if I were to do such a thing and it actually made a profit, I 
would dedicate the same to help pay for a big anniversary party in 2005. 
However, I would rather hear if people would actually want such memorabilia 
themselves rather than as a fund-raising donation."

IMHO we could get the best of both worlds by merchandising the shirts, mugs, 
and caps on the Cafe Press site to the public for profit, while having a new 
set of cloisonne pins with the anniversary logo made specially for ourselves. 

The price you proposed sounds pretty reasonable for a spiffy, durable pin 
we could wear to meetings, film events, cons, etc.

And using any profits for a big anniversary bash would be GREAT! So, count 
me in.

Peace and Pocky,
The Jillster
