Roy, I don't need to drink spoiled milk to know that I don't want any.

Third point: This thread is an advertisement. The spokesperson for this advertisement, when challenged to defend his offering, finds the best plan of action is to act like a child who has been caught lying.

I hope you aren't a salesman in real life, your commission would be less than satisfactory. I don't understand what you do not intend to take away from acid- it seems to me that the very least you could take away is some tips, techniques, and social skills.

This is the people's forum- not mine, not yours. Also, there's a section dedicated to For Sale items, why don't you try selling your vinyl there? As far as I know, this part is for showing off, not selling.

showing off for whom?

i shouldn't have to defend what im selling because you don't like it. because you don't like it. means you should look at the thread think to yourself, "oh man i would never stoop to the level of buying vinyl of which i am unsure the quality especially from a person i do not know.." and that's that nothing more.. don't post your b.s. on how you shouldn;t buy from me and you should buy from them.. how i should do this and not that.. i take all the suggestions that anyone has even given me.. as long as it was given in the right manner. of which you did not.

IMO..( i just learned what that means...see i listen)
You rain on everyones parade. that's where the eeyore comment came from.

and as for making sure no one buys from me, ive had more people pm now that you started "Raining" so i'd like to thank you.

Showing off for all the disc golfers who frequent the Disc Artwork pages that have grown from a single thread (Acid's YAY!!! monster) to an awesome collection of dyes that we all love to drool at.

Why would you have to defend yourself to anybody? Are you not your own man?

I haven't endorsed anybody else... why would I do that? You have someone else's posts confused with mine.

If I have unpacked your broken English correctly, you're trying to say that I didn't phrase my suggestions in a way that coddled you? I gave two points of advice, 1) to upsize the piece of vinyl if possible and 2) to watch out for George Lucas. How should I have phrased my advice? Written on the back of a 6-dollar check for a single piece of suspect vinyl? I bet you would have paid attention to that.

Meh- you're just experiencing the initial flood of inquiries. Your stencil sale will reach an appropriate equilibrium in due course. Anyways, the readers of the forum like some drama, and I'm sure we have drawn quite a bit of attention to this thread, with your childish arguments and my logical attacks. Well, be sure to keep us updated on your business.

Last note- I do implore you to move your advertisement to the Buy/Sell/Trade section... I think these pages should remain free of that type of post. I support dyeing and selling, but it's nice to have a museum to browse instead of Dye Wall St.- "Buy! Buy! Sell! Sell!" That makes these pages a drag.

The Dude: Man, you're fucking Polish Catholic...
Walter Sobchak: What the fuck are you talking about? I converted when I married Cynthia! Come on, Dude!
The Dude: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Walter Sobchak: And you know this!
The Dude: Yeah, and five fucking years ago you were divorced.
Walter Sobchak: So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?

I see your clever signature, and I'll explain it to you. Despite the fact that it does not explicitly contain any name-calling, I still consider it childish enough to warrant one last attack.

Your first post on DGR was a misplaced advertisement. That tells me that you are here without our best interests in mind. You are not trying to "help out your fellow disc golfers". You are spamming the forum with business deals.

Besides, you have mistaken my dislike for your tactics as a dislike of you personally. I have no idea who you are, I just know that it doesn't matter.

im glad that you saw it. moving on.

"you couldn't be more wrong." adding to my list of copyright violations, i quoted Ross/Russ from 'friends.' And claimed it as my own.


i saw the buytrade forum and just assumed this would be a better spot for it. sorry duder, if i offended you with my massive spam attack on your DGR website.

I'm not sure what's going on here... At first I thought you two knew each other in the real world....

I dont see anything wrong with Thommie offering to sell vinyl cut on a plotter for a fee? I see two people posted that were happy with the service Thommie provided. I see one person who is not happy even though I dont think he ever dealt with with Thommie.

Then there's a two page pissing contest.

Anywho, carry on

Roy, I know Thommie personally and his work is top notch. I'm also not a person to give a good review just because I know the dude. If his services was junk I would not refer him to people on here. I typically prefer doing all hand cut but there were a few disc that I wanted to do that would have taken a long time to do by hand so he made some stencils for me and they worked out great.

My...hasn't this turned into a delightful mess!

At any rate, on the subject of whether this thread belongs in this forum.

I think this is a better place than the B/S/T forum. I don't check there, and I'm interested in finding someone to cut some dye stencils for some upcoming events I'm putting on in quantities that the amount of free time my career offers me doesn't allow me. I would never have seen this thread if it was in B/S/T and would've probably skipped on the dyes in the immediate term because of that.

At any rate, he specifically stated which vinyl he uses... Is that the "cheap" stuff, or is it good stuff? That was one point someone missed in the mud slinging...

651 is what I use for the vinyl stickers I make. It's an intermediate 6 year uv protected vinyl. Good for car decals and stuff. That's mainly what I use for all my vinyl work. For dyes I use 631. It's their economy vinyl. It's made for short term graphics and has a very low tachiness to it. I use it because it's really
easy to clean up without messing with the dye.

What can mess up the dye by the time you're peeling the vinyl off? Is it that the dye isn't fully set yet, and that cleaning up the residue can cause you to smear it?

It's not the vinyl residue itself that ruins it, it's the fact that you have to use chemicals to remove the sticky stuff that kind of starts to mess with the dye. You won't pull all the dye off the disc, but you will sometimes smear the dye onto other parts of the disc. Imagine cleaning a fresh dye job with straight acetone. It's gonna pull the dye off a bit and mix colors and crap.

Using the weaker economy vinyl let's me use a mild chemical to clean the residue off just minutes after pulling a dye out of the pan. I don't have to sit and wait for it to set
