The 2013 promotional Grow with Grubbycup collectible buttons have arrived. Printed for the Grow with Us Hydroponics customer appreciation weekend – Boston Freedom Rally – Nickel City Wholesale Garden Supply (special thanks to General Hydroponics) tour. Hitting Rhode Island, Mass, New York, and maybe others before heading back to California to get back into the studio and record more episodes.
Almost half of the first run have already been given out, and only expect to have a pack or two for myself left at the end of the week.
The first six button set features
1) I love Herb the Wizard’s Magic Potions – I’m pretty sure I’m going to change these to either just I love Herb the Wizard or just go in a different direction with these.
2) Sancho Bonsai – I like these, and one of the more popular buttons. It is clean and easy to read. Will probably keep this design for the Sancho buttons at least for a while.
3) The original Grubbycup button with the growing G logo – The first and most popular of the Grubbycup promotional buttons.
4) A crop of the Grow with Grubbycup show logo – May change the text to be larger, and tweak the purple G.
5) Grow with Grubbycup green with heart – Cute, but will likely be replaced by a different button.
6) Admit One Alphred’s Dungeon Pass – I really like the concept here, but the script came out a little difficult to read. Will likely change for the next print run.
So Gentle Readers, why the extra details about the buttons? And why point out which ones will likely not be reprinted?
Because some folks collect them. Not because they will ever be worth any more than they are now, but just for fun. By posting a chronological record with photos, descriptions and comments, I hope to make it a little more fun for those folks.
Current plan is for the next set of buttons to be used as giveaways for Gentle Listeners, but still working on the details. Until then, if you see me, don’t be shy about walking up and asking me for a button, I try to keep at least a few in my pocket for just such an occasion, particularly at events (limited quantities, while supplies last).
