Default Cheap fast idea

Thinking of adding some pet themed things. Started with these. Sold 3 the first 2 days they were put out. Could probably be a good donation for a fundraiser. Simple pocket cut with a little text.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I have also had good luck with "I like big mutts and I cannot lie" and "My granddog is cuter than yours"

It's not fair, dog people (including me) are suckers for things like that

Those are cute! Get a poster with a cute photo of a puppy or kitten from the local animal shelter. State that you will donate a certain % to the shelter.

Good item to get people spending a little cash, and I like Who Rescued Who? Have some large ones they can order with their dog's name on it so they can hang it in front of their doghouse.

I think anything like that pet related would do well. I mean like how many times in our life do we get adopted? So far for me it's been 5.......and I miss everyone of them.

Dog House? OHHHH You mean on their front door! You don't rescue/purchase a dog to throw them outside in a dog house - they're part of the family.

@honesttjohn how big are these? They're adorable!!!

Secondly, if they're as small as I think they are, how are you getting the lettering colored? I'm having a devil of a time getting paint/ink, etc in tiny lettering.

They're about 6 1/2" square. They can be stretched or shrunk to any size desired. The "magic" of Aspire and CNC.

I mask, paint, and sand them just like I do all the others. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I know you're not talking about ex wives. Especially the "missing" part.

Okay, a lot bigger than I thought. They looked like they were key chain-sized. Either way, I love 'em!
