Keychains
« on: March 09, 2008, 12:40:20 PM »
Seems like a PLA keychain would be a good thing to offer since pretty much everyone has keys.  I've only seen a few that I like, though.  I don't want to be cheap and just get some metal thing with PLA stamped on it.  What I really want are these:

http://www.promotionalkeychains.biz/custom-keychains-manufacturer.html

Imagine the PLA bell logo in one of those formats.  My favorites are the "Artisan Series Zinc Alloy Plated 2-D Color Filled Custom Keychains" which is the 3rd item from the top.  I would love to have those made, but it looks like I'd have to spend about $2,000 up front on them.  That's a lot of my own money to drop on them and it would take years to make it back.  I'd have to sell about 400 of them at $5.00 each.  I bet 5 years later I still wouldn't sell 400 of them.

There are other options on that page which are equally cool, but they still require $1,000 - $1,500 to get started.  Screw that.  I can probably find a page that has slightly better prices, but I doubt it would be too much cheaper.

http://www.sz-wholesale.com/shenzhen_China_products/Solar-LCD-Keychain_1.htm I also like these solar powered LCD keychains.  I've seen these at giftshops.  They don't require any batteries and the image that they flash is really bright.  It's like a glossy image on paper, but it flashes or changes colors.  It's really neat.  I can't seem to find a page of these with prices right now, but I remember them being very reasonable.

http://www.laserengravedkeychains.com/keychain-flashlight.htm Then there's a laser engraved flashlight keychain.  There's tons of styles to choose from on these and they're always priced good.  A flashlight on a keychain could be useful too.

If anyone has any comments or other ideas for keychains, post them here.  Or maybe you can find a page that has better prices or better designs.

The voice bridge is pretty much a completely separate entity. The URL would be better.
I HATE the bridge.

Ummm, if you spent $2,000 on 400 keychains and then sold them for $5 each you would not be making a profit. With inflation,if it took you 5 years to break even you'd actually have lost slightly. Not to mention the time and labor involved in shipping and handling.

It's $2,000 for 1,000 keychains.  I just meant that I would have to sell 400 of them at that price to break even.  After that, THEN I would sell the remaining 600 keychains for $3,000 and I'd be RICH!  If I worked really hard at it, I bet I could sell all 1,000 keychains in just 10 years.

Well if that's not planning for the future I dunno what is. My own mediocre attempt at humor has been highly amusing to myself.

I'd totally buy a PLA keychain just so I could keep it next to my NYPD chain.  I really like the first one and the idea of the PLA bell seems neat.  I'm not a huge fan of stuff with logos.

Can I make the request for a bumper sticker?  Cause the regular sticker I have on my car half peeled off already.

Seconded, mine didn't last 9 months on my car. The Hell System sticker has taken it's place.

http://www.pens.com/pens/Product_Detail.aspx?prod=WhistleKyChainLight&design=Design-None  Here's a keychain that's a flashlight AND a whistle!  Maybe I could say it whistles at 2600Hz and make a fortune by selling them in the back of 2600 magazine.
