Posted:Could it possibly work with the "Home of Poi" bit going horizontally at the top, then the little fire-spinning person quite large beneath it? Or would thatr be crap?

I'm thinking of it engraved here, probably wouldn't look that great in colour. Hmm.

Love the work Mech, but I must say I'm loving the "Do not set self on fire" one far too much for anything to look good in comparison.. peaked too soon! wink

Posted:I think they'd know a lot.

Think about it, women spend aaagggeeesss making themselves look pretty, so they should have a good idea of what is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, more so than us boys who don't spend ages in front of the mirror, right?

Posted:No... the reason its going down the side is because on a lighter there is more space going down the lighter than across... if it was to go across it would have to be written alot smaller. xxx

Posted:i know that there are some companies, such as http://www.pipeshop.com,
that allow you to get customized Zippos for free or a very small fee, depending on the graphic you want. The minimumk order is 50, but the more you buy the more of a discount they give you.

Here is the important bit: The Zippos are actually customized by Zippo... your order is made by Zippo themselves, not a third party, so you warrantee or lifetime gurantee is not voided. you can get any style of personalization you want, laser etching, acid engraving, silk screening, etc. all of them are free, if you meet their parameters (such as only printed on one face of the zippo and only 2 colors) but if you want to exceed their parameters it still is not expensive. thats an american company, but they deal directly with zippo which is their appeal. i dont know if there are opther companies that do the same thing. if you were going to do it, malcolm, i would reccomend you check this place out, i have had nothing but success with them in the past with my zippo orders.

*shrugs* I'm not too bothered though really, I'll almost certainly buy one regardless, as long as it's a decent windproof one.



edit... the main picture I used was originally entered into the t-shirt competition by Brian Saccomano, I only butchered it to get it onto the lighter wink

Posted:I personally would prefer one that doesn't say 'home of poi'....purely for that fact that I don't want to hurt my staff's feelings.

But then again I do kind of like the home of poi writing because it gives it more of a personal thing. Like a sense of belonging and being a part of something that you can brag to everyone about.
