    Hey guys, I need some advice. i am gearing up to go out and speak with local gunshops and firearms related businesses about hosting the Washington Gun Rights pamphlet here in Spokane.

    What do you guys think would be the best way to approach this? I mean, I don't have an official affiliation with a group or anything, other than OCDO, so.....?

    How are you guys approaching people?

    This sounds like a good topic for our Saturday get together! I'll think about it and get back to you Saturday morning over coffee.

    "Hi, I'm so and so. I just wrote this pamphlet that details the rights of Washington State gun owners with cites to various RCW's and case laws. This should help gun owners gain a greater understanding of their rights and responsibilities under state law, plus be a valuable resource to give to your customers when they ask questions about the law. Would you mind helping us to distribute these?"

    I'm going to go to the local indy book store in Oly and see if they will host some. I'll print up a 100 or so, they probably will.

    AH-HA!!!!

    So get this, I can get 5,000 of these printed in COLOR for $275!!!!

    Good thing I have a buddy who does graphic design work and has printing connections and a corporate account he can use. Staples wanted $325 for black and white!!

    So...who wants to go in on the first run of them with me? I know that's a lot of pamphlets, but hopefully that will just be the beginning.

    That's a good price for both sides color!! Only 5.5 cents per pamphlet. Just think about how many stores in the state can host them, and how many people we could potentially convert.

    So, I'll start a group buy right here and now. I'll pick up the first 1000. This should be enough to really get some out here in Spokane for a while.

    When there is a total commitment of $275, I'll submit the order. Just post how many you want right here in this thread.


    Once I get them in hand, you guys can send me a check, money order, or paypal for the pamphlets and a little bit for shipping, and I will ship them out!

    Here is how they break down for different quantities:

    100=$5.50

    250=$13.75
    500=$27.50
    750= $41.25
    1000=$55.00

    Put me down for 250. That should cover the Pullman area as well as get me started in the Tri-Cities.

    Hey dave, I will be posting a new pamphlet shortly with http://www.concealedcampus.org listed, as well as a bit more underlining like you had suggested in the RCW's.

    Now that I am looking at it, and can get such a good deal on color copies, I am trying to look at where I can add some more color to keep the eyes on it, but still keep it as professional and appealing as possible. If anybody has suggestions or ideas about where to add color, PM me and they will be considered.

    Maybe you could add color by highlighting key phrases instead of underlining them.

    Blue might work if you got it light enough that it didn't obscure any of the words. The nice thing about yellow is that it's bright, gabs your attention, and is easy to see through.

    I can manage the $30 for 500...I'm in.

    You won't even have to ship....I'm scooting through Spokane on my way to Montana in late May and early June (return trip). I can pick em up in person!

    Surf:

    Money is snug right now but I will drop you a check for 500 if you will PM me your details.

    I look at it as a long term investment and know a few gun dealers who will likely keep them handy.

    I was reviewing the new color changes and found one TINY nit to pick:

    On the first page, left column, last line you wrote "Refer to RCW 9.41.300 on reverse to view the complete list of restrictions."

    The way this pamplet is folded, wouldn't that actually be INSIDE the pamphlet and not on the back panel?

    ha! Good one. I fixed it. I also just got the edited photo of Thomas Jefferson on it now, which should look much better when printed.

    Morris,Trigger Dr and Nathan added to the list.



    My buddy said they can be printed on high quality paper in matte, glossy or semigloss. I was thinking semigloss would look the best. What do you guys all think?

    I don't know about which paper would look best but I'm thinking of ordering a few of these:

    those are nice, and cost effective too. While I don't have any places to host the pamphlets yet, I plan on it soon. These will certainly make them more visible. Good find!!!
    It would be easy to print up some small stickers to put on the inside behind the pamphlets that say something like "to resupply these pamphlets, call surfj9009 at xxx-xxx-xxxx".

    that way when the business runs out, they can give somebody a call to get more. I mean, that makes it a no-brainer.

    Edited to add: I just ordered 12 of these, shipped to Spokane, I paid $38.62.
