Sorry guys- yep, still making these and yes, I keep track in my KLOV thread. I think there are about 25 orders or so right now. PM me here or on KLOV and I'll respond.

Oh, and yes- I make the ones for Gene at ILP!

In case anyone wanted to see more of the final product, here's a couple pics of the ones I ordered. First pic are the fronts, second pic are the backs. Third pic is them hanging on my nifty key rack :)

Still active- I actually have 30 orders in queue right now, but to be honest I get most of my orders from KLOV members. I still check PMs and get notices when there are new posts in this thread, but feel free to un-sticky if necessary.

It's been a while since anyone has given a thanks for this great service. I got my keychain last week and have just been so busy that I've not had the chance, but thank you very much. I know that with as many of these that you do this must be very time consuming. The keychain is much smaller than I thought it would be (which is great) I was worried that it wouldn't fit so well in my pocket.

Thanks again!

Can I get one for my son, with his name on 1 side, and a picture of his slot machine on the other?

I am in Pittsburgh as well.

I can provide artwork.

Sorry guys, I don't get here too often.  Yes, still making these and I'm jammed with orders right now.  PM me with your requests, your email address and zip code & I'll return your PM with further instructions.  Thanks!

John is a great guy, and I know from his posts on KLOV that real life just gets in the way and rather than keep playing catchup, it's better to just put things on hiatus for a while. I look forward to him resuming this when he can (and glad I put in a request in June before the cut-off date  >:D ).

Im sure i was in before the cutoff date, I was wondering the other day why i hadn't heard anything about my order and then when i came to look at the KLOV thread found out he stopped. Ugh, i was looking forward to those.  :-\


At any rate, i found a Chinese supplier for the exact same blanks he was using.  So i ordered a metricshit ton of tag blanks and some other cutting/printing supplies. Now as soon as my order arrives i can make all the tags i want.
 
;D

Who was the supplier if you don't mind sharing? Like to make my own as well.

They look like these to me.

Time wise, it's not a viable business for me to make and sell these myself, but I've done a couple dozen now for myself and friends and they're awesome.

The odd dud per bag of 50, but all in all very much worth it.  If you have a large number to do maybe get a couple bags.

Those look great, thanks for the link! I assume you just used nice inkjet paper, did you print double-sided or sandwich prints back-to-back?

Sandwich, yes. On matte finish Brochure paper. Photo paper was too thick, and standard white printer paper was too poor for print quality. I tested a few types. This worked best for weight and finish.
