The New QE2Story Badge!
« on: Jan 14, 2011, 06:22 PM »
Well they arrived today!  I was quite excited opening the box.

I would like to thank Richard for the original forum logo design on which this is based, Lynda for organising the entire thing, and, importantly, the generous donors to the forum who have made it possible for me to pay for these before any are bought.

And now for the unveiling (attached).  They're lovely quality I think.  Perfect for quite subtly showing your support both for the QE2, and this website.

I'll add the ability to buy them to the Shop in the next couple of days.  For UK customers, they'll be £5 for one including postage.  This allows us to break even.  The cost is relatively high because we've had to order a relatively low number of them.  If you order more than one, I can lower the price for you (because there will be no additional postage & packing).

Hi Rob
I would really like one. How much including postage to South Africa?

I'd also like to know how to buy a badge from the US.  Thanks.

Thanks Bob! Glad to hear it was easy, even on an Iphone!

For those of you reading in guest mode, as you might have guessed, the badges are now available to order in the shop!

Hi Bob - Just ordered new badge and stamp ... it was very easy, even the pounds/dollar ratios were computed for me.  Thanks ... great job.

I am really pleased at how the badge has turned out.  When working with the badge manufacturer you only see the design image on paper and you miss out on the full effect.  The task was made easy because of Richard's Forum Logo design which gives an up to date look to the forum web page header and transferred well onto the badge design.    The moderators made the final choice for the badge and it looks like a good choice was made. I am certainly looking forward to wearing my badge.

Thank you to everybody for your feedback, and your many orders!  The first batch of badges will be in my local postbox this evening.  We will all be very interested to hear what you think of them, and we'll be expecting photos of you wearing them in interesting shippy places!!

I just want to let you all know that I've been able to lower the overseas prices by a whopping 50p, after sending the first couple out to establish the cost.

If the people who have already bought at the slightly higher price would like the 50p refunded, we are more than happy to do this - please just email admin@TheQE2Story.com and we'll sort it for you.

I was absolutely delighted with my new QE2 Story Badge when it arrived in the post this morning and have been wearing it all day.  In fact I  think it looks better than in the photo shown in the QE2 Story shop.


Rob asked forum members to take a photo wearing the badge at interesting shippy places.  I will think about doing that when we are out and about at 'shippy places' but in the meantime I hope you like my photo of the QE2 Story badge taking pride of place on a QE2  picture that has a special place in my house.    

Looking forward to hearing what other forum members think about the badge and seeing photos.

I don't know if this was intended but looking at Lynda's photo above, the new badge has the subtle appearance of an anchor.  This is very appropriate since the QSF is now the place to anchor all things QE2.  Well done design team!
