  • The year you started making chainmail
    1999
  1. Im in the middle of making a mobile app for my store and I was thinking of doing a few things with it. 1. Include ring suppliers in a directory, like TRL 2. Include other maillers chainmaille stores in a directory 3. Feature other peoples work on the app. 4. Make tutorials for or have someone elses tutorials available on the app, or include multiple tutorials from various sources. This would include push notification capability that would allow businesses who are listed on the app and have an announcement to make to be able to notify everyone who has the app downloaded to their phone. My questions are: 1. Should I just make the app for my store and then make a second app with all of the rest of the content on it? 2. What type of offer should I make? I was thinking $10 a month to be listed with push notifications for announcements etc. 3. Should I make the video tutorials myself instead? Its a lot of work, I could do it, but Id rather help someone whose already doing it as Im good at building apps and have no idea how good I would be at doing tutorials. Any thoughts or questions to help think this through are appreciated!!
  2. Does anyone have any of these laying around that I can buy off of them?
  3. Thats pretty cool!
  4. I recently started my own website to sell my stuff at www.maillewerx.com, so I changed my profile name here as well to reflect that. just FYI. I haven't posted here in some time and am just getting back to mailling full time to increase products on my store. Going to be making a large ring order soon I hope. I'm curious to know what's been selling for you guys? Now that I have my store up I need to stock it and am looking for more ideas! Once I have it all up and running I am planning on building an app for it to help keep my customers around, that way when I make something I can just upload a picture of it to the app and send out a notification to everyone that has the app on their phone and hopefully I'll make a sale!
  5. Can you practice with larger rings? I find that helps. Whitesmoke
  6. So I realize this post is 4 years old but I just moved to Kenosha about 5 minutes away from Bristol by crow. If anyone nearby sees this post I'd love to meet up at some point whether its at the Renfaire or somewhere else. Whitesmoke
  7. Yep, its a real place. I've pretended to care about football and the Packers to get an 'in' with the locals. It's in the 50's today but its supposed to freeze over next week sometime then apparently its a frozen wasteland until May.
  8. Just moved up to this frozen wasteland because of work, had to leave my nice warm home of San Antonio. Anyone in the area and/or want to meet up somewhere? Whitesmoke
  9. I'm in the middle of a move across the country so everything is packed for now but PM me. I think I may have the older scales and may also be willing to get rid of them.
  10. I'm trying not to judge my work by other's responses but I gotta say, I was surprised that a 10,000 ring project didn't garner more acknowledgement. Thanks for letting me know the post was ok. I was having trouble posting the pics so I wanted to be sure that other people could see them.
  11. What are you using if for? By 'Hold up," what do you mean? If you're just making it to wear, just because, then I'm sure you'll be fine. If you're making if for a purpose I would recommend something closer to 16G 1/4"ID. I currently have two shirts I'm working on out of that ring size and it works very well.
  12. Can anybody actually see this? Are the pics too large? Is the text readable? I find it hard to believe that after four days no one has seen fit to comment. I didn't think it was that bad of a piece. Could someone tell me if the post is ok? Thanks Whitesmoke
  13. This is my fifth or sixth bottle wrap. I picked up the bottle at World Market and all rings are TRL. Stainless Steel and Bronze 22G 1/8" ID. Approximately 10,000 rings give or take, using strips of HP 3-1 sheet 6, and Interwoven 4-1 to connect the strips that created the nice striped texture around the bottle. Comments are critiques are always welcome, thanks for taking a look. Also, I apologize in advance if the text isn't readable, I couldn't figure out how to change it.
  14. Are you on IFI? Anyway, post this in the "Trading Room," as a WTB and you may get a hit. I'm not selling mine otherwise I would PM you.
