    A pin badge - good for advertising and could be discreetly worn on the uniform (shirt collar maybe)

    A Lanyard - useful, they don't make an explorer one...

    A cup - stainless steel, with a lid, insulated - perfect for camps!

    I voted for a few, but a lanyard is a big one for me.

    I wear them all the time at events. In Switzerland I was seen wearing three neckers and three lanyards, all at the same time.

    I think the key thing that th epoll doesnt take into account is price. I would buy a lot of the things on thier and have voted as such but only if they where at a reasonable price. Or if they where quite dear then i may not buy as many of the things.

    I agree with humpty that obviously the price would be a major deciding factor, and we would probably have to pay for postage as well.

    I voted for Pin Badge and Lanyard, because I agree with what others have said in this topic about them. Although I usually wear my Jamboree wristband, I feel that wristbands aren't a fashionable as they were. It's sad that even though wristbands are mainly for charities, that most people gave up wearing them once the craze had passed.

    Its likely that we'd only get 1 or 2 things made initially. Yes price is an issue, as is postage. Someone to do it is also a issue

    Lots of issues

    Youd probably be making most of this stuff to order so the costs would actually be quite a lot. its unlikley you could justify buying 200 wristbands in the hope that your going to sell them. And to get good deals you probably need to sell them in the thousands.

    I think that the best idea would be to bulk order things. So you will be invoiced for the cost of the item once 100 people have ordered one for example. That way you get the bulk discount which makes all these things resonable and also allow people to keep their money until the order is about to be placed!

    If you need anyone to help out with this im always here (at my desk )
