    Default pioneer plaque ID tags (SELEM)

    hey guys,

    i've been laser engraving little pioneer spacecraft plaque tags and it occurs to me that the laser community might also like them. they're perfect if you or your luggage gets lost while on interstellar travel. the plaque was flown on the pioneer 10 (1972) and pioneer 11 (1973) spacecrafts.

    i'm making them on my homemade laser cutter.

    the plates are metal, 3.5 inches by 2 inches x .020 thickness with .125 holes (8.9cm x 5.1cm x .6 mm) in the corners.

    they're really designed to be bolted to things, but i've had a number of people ask for engraving on the back, and i'm happy to do that.

    my first priority will be getting a batch ready for selem where people can just hand me cash (or lattes) and i don't have to deal with shipping and paypal.

    if you're interested in picking one up at selem, just post here so i can have a rough idea of how many i need to make (i have 6 committed so far).

    how about 5$ each for cash at selem. this doesn't cover my time, but who cares. selem is awesome!

    if you want something custom on the front or the back, let me know. unless what you're asking for is totally outrageous, i can do 10$ for a custom front and 15$ for a custom front and back. i would need to know very quickly as selem is less than two weeks away and my time is stretched pretty thin!

    see you all there!
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Hello,

    I would like to purchase 2 of your "Pioneer plaque ID tags", just as they are with no customization.

    See you at SELEM.

    WARNING BRAD: THIS MAY STING A LITTLE

    I have purchased a Swamidog show already.

    That is to say, I purchased said item before the notorious "Brad the Master Purchaser".


    Just to be clear, I was FIRST to make a cash purchase of the already iconic Swamidog shows.


    I believe LATER* opportunities to purchase Swamidog shows are still available.


    * For purposes of this brag-fest, the term "LATER" is defined as any such purchase made AFTER the FIRST** purchase . . which has already concluded.

    ** The rights to the FIRST purchase associated with this brag-fest is forever associated with a person who does NOT have the nickname "Bradfo69"


    Just having a bit of fun, my friend, but I think the more important message is that the Swami-store is open for business.
    "Help, help, I'm being repressed!"

    Hahahaha. Now THIS may sting a little.

    Nice try but....

    If we're actually being technical here. Swami should be willing to attest to this and, I if necessary, can probably conjure up the credit card receipt for the exact date but, I purchased my first Swami show in the late spring of 2013.

    Keep tryin'!

    (Creative post though!)

    You DID say "cash" so, if you actually handed him currency, then by technicality I supposed I can give it to you but, if you Paypal'ed it.... All bets off .
