Whew, this post has been hanging around in my head for a little while now and I was waiting until I got some good photos of our new product before I posted but there’s a couple things tugging on me:
- TD fans are excited about Celtic bags
- I am excited about Celtic bags
So I have to post about it NOW hehe.
Ok so it all started with my little poll on this site to check the pulse of the Celtic idea… and many of you have weighed your votes showing me that Celtic would be widely supported making me think:
yeah this idea is going to fly no problem 🙂
So Celtic has three (coming on four) design styles and three “printing techniques” that will all be applied.. I say printing in quotes because the really exciting part is that one Celtic bag (one series, I am planning 4 designs in this sub-family) is going to be a STRUCK CELTIC MEDAL and really not printed at all hehe.
So here is the END RESULT that I am trying to achieve.
This has been slapped on some green bag material I had left over.
I wont be using this color FYI
Then we struck our first medal and it came out like this
(I stuck this on some black I have left over, no I won’t been using black either).
The first casting was no bueno for me.Not colored and shiny enough, back to the foundry we go…
I did stick it on my broadsword to take some test shots however, I’m a geek like that.
(My 4 year old was astounded that I pulled out a real broadsword).
So now I have my new medal from the foundry.
This is MUCH MUCH better.. I am running with this…
So that is the breaking news from Third Die.
I will be developing 4 medal designs each placed on 2 different colored bags. The bags will be the standard great design, some different colors then what the 6 company bags are in right now (those with the TD logo).
They will still be reversible but who will want to put the medal inside? I dunno.
I am thinking these bags will sell for $19.99 what you think about that?
Anyway as outlined in my previous post CELTIC CROSS TEST PRINTING V1 I will be doing 6 Celtic printed bags on top of the 4 medal bags all with custom colors!
These should come out in mid-late November … fingers crossed 🙂
