I am moving forward with a large scale RON PAUL 2012 banner making effort. I have already ordered 8000 square feet of material. This is about a half pallet of tarps (about 500 pounds) to be shipped via truck to my warehouse. Six, 28x48 foot tarps will allow for the manufacture of 250, 4ft x8ft banners. These banners will be targeted for high visibility locations throughout New Hampshire.


BANNER PROJECT UNDERWAY! PRODUCTION STARTED 9th OCT.

Cost of tarps: $135 each = $810 + $299 shipping, $1109 for six delivered.

Other required supplies would include:
Grommets, self piercing (3000) about $250
Grommet installation tool, $100,
Nylon cable ties (4000), $100
150 cans of spray paint, $300
Six mylar 4x8ft stencils at $135 each, $810

Total estimated project cost: $2669, or $10.67 per 4x8 banner.

The banners will be constructed by a small team of volunteers at my facility in Manchester, NH.

I am asking for your financial support. See CHIPIN LINK BELOW.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

The time to act is now.

Thank you for your consideration.

The banners will be used all over New Hampshire. They will be placed in "high profile" locations.

Thank you for your donation.

Did you look into obtaining used billboard vinyl prior to ordering the tarps? Or even just cheaper tarps from a different supplier? You can get a 40'x40' tarp for $60 shipped...

And be sure to check ebay for the grommets... we buy ours at about 70% less than you're paying.

bump. Looks worthwhile to me. My only issue is that these signs may not last too long, as they will likely get cut down shortly after getting put up.

I want to make a banners that will stand up to winter weather.I donated, but Ouch! In the future, make calls locally. A lot of billboard companies will let their used vinyl go for free or cheap--like $20 a roll because it saves them the disposal fees. Even if you have to rent a pickup truck for a few hours to pick it up, it's so much more economical.

Tyvek also weathers relatively well, and you can buy 9000 square feet for under $300 at lowes. Some banners will inevitably be removed after just a few days or weeks, so they shouldn't be too costly.

Thanks for your support. I really appreciate it.
I went to the largest sign companys in the area. They did not have any sign material available.

10-04-2011, 10:34 PM
I expect many to be up for weeks at a time. I am making up to 300 so that we can replace any that are removed.

It's easy to find faults and reasons not to participate. I choose to make things happen, regardless of the obstacles.

When they take them down I will put up more. When they take down one, I will put up two.

Let it not be said that we did nothing.

The time to act is now.

WE HAVE SPACE for the BANNER PROJECT !

I have secured a suitable location in Manchester, NH. The historic millyard location should provide a more than adequate venue for the stencil painting of the banners.

Unfortunately I was required to obtain a short term insurance policy to satisfy the property owner. (additional $230)

Painting will begin on Sunday the 9th. I have the building through Saturday the 15th.

Any donations would be appreciated.

Thanks to all who have supported this effort.

URGENT

I need the use of about 2500 Square feet of floor space for five to seven days. Larger would be even better.
Space should be as close to Manchester/Concord, NH as possible.

The tarp material is 28Ft x 48Ft.

There are two locations willing to work with me however they want a $1 million liability poicy for the week. I believe this will cost $300 - $400.

If you can provide insurance free space or insurance for the space we have available please let me know ASAP.

PM me here on RPF

The next project is a Laser Graphics Projector. During August, I constructed a computer controlled, laser projector for an article I wrote " Laser Grafitti Activisim" for Ernie Hancock at Freedom's Phoenix, e-magazine edition. The idea is to use this projector to put highly visible text and graphics anywhere it needs to be seen! I recently used it at the "Leap for Liberty" Ron Paul event in Derry, NH. The phrases, "Ron Paul 2012" and "Freedom is Popular" were projected on the the large 20 x 60ft tent seating 200+ people.

Donation will be used to upgrade the laser portion of the projector, making it almost ten times more powerful. If the chipin is successful the 0.15W laser will be replaced with a 1Watt laser. This will allow projection of messages on almost any flat surface, anywhere!

Please help if you can.
Thank you for your support.

Thank you for your support.

Projecting messages onto Mitten's headquarters will be much easier than putting banners on an overpass.

"Black This Out" as they say...

Please tell you friends about the projector effort. :)
