GB: Interest: EC travel coffee mugs & possible Carbon Fiber?

Alright guys this is a joint-effort group buy for me and CelicaGTizzle. The idea is a coffee mug that has a collage-type picture of sweet celicas that will go around the mug...with the EC logo going around the top or somethin. On these mugs the bottom comes off and there's a cylinder that goes around the mug that we'll cover with the collage (printed out on photo printer), glue on and stick back in there. Kyle will post some pics of the mugs when he gets a chance. Anyone interested?

NOW UP as you see is a pic of the real 3k Carbon Fiber mug...This is my prototype...anyone interested? It would cost $45 shipped...

BTW our other group buys; kyle's clear Sidemarkers and my EC apparel have first priority...we're not abandoning them at all...just came up with a new idea and wanted to gauge interest wave

This seller is located near: EAST GREENVILLE, PA

Here is the 2nd pic. Remember these can be completely customized so if you want certain pictures on there then I can put them on there. Send pictures to Smitti87@wideopenwest.com.

Also, remember this was thrown together quickly so you could get a general idea of what the mug will look like.

I think the Carbon Fiber mugs would cost ~$45 plus shipping and i would need 6 mugs sold...but...well i have to get a sample and see exactly how much I use...and if i'll be able to do it well enough, etc.

take the first one and invert it. make it white on black (white words/picture on black background) instead of black on white.

hey guys i posted a pic at the top...here's a pic of the Carbon Fiber one showing the seam so you can see how 'clean' it is. I mean it's not the greatest because of that seam there...but there's no other way i could get Carbon Fiber in there and everything. But as you can see that is real 3k Carbon Fiber. and actually...if you can take it out and cannibalize it to use it for something...you can do that too. The piece in there now is actually coated with 3M self adhesive on the back

what is '3k' carbon fiber? j/w

i usually just know it by weave pattern and by how many ounces it weighs..3k is a brand?

3k just means 3 thousand fibers per square inch or something...it just tells you how thin each fiber is basically...Theres a few different weave patterns too... idunno

No, I believe the K refers to the strength of the Carbon Fiber. 1K would be the lightest but also the weakest Carbon Fiber and a higher K would mean it is heavier, but stronger. I could be wrong so don't quote me on that...
