Only Premium Members can start a new run.
If you're truly ambitious, you may be able to figure out who to talk to at Barbasol... I know they were going to make cans for Chronicle's run of Cryocans before they folded.Hello all. My current design is a decal which is added to the can. However, I am working with a supplier to see if I can get the cans printed directly on them.
Yeah, he would be buying the cans outright so he wouldn’t need to worry about licensing.Dunno... if he's buying the cans from them...
I think you are misunderstanding what I said. I was referring to his statement : “I am working with a supplier to see if I can get the cans printed directly on them”. Not from Barbasol. See post 24.Did he say he was buying them outright from barbasol? He said he has vinyl labels. So I presumed he located vintage cans and slapped the labels on. Regardless, if he were to buy cans directly from barbasol, and they know he’s creating Cryocans, you better believe that barbasol would ask him for a purchase agreement spelling out what exactly he can do with the cans and he’d be paying an additional amount. Licensing is involved in anything you sell.
Moviefreak, you seem so certain of your stance. But I wouldn’t bet money on it. Their internal lawyers would never allow it otherwise.
I wouldn’t say I misunderstood. You quoted Shpider, who was referencing Barbasol as the supplier. See post #28. So, rather your post was misleading. On the other hand, if you had quoted or referenced post 24, which you didn’t, then you would have provided the proper context to understand your point. And our arguments are flying past each other now that you changed the context to what you intended, but didn’t properly refer to.I think you are misunderstanding what I said. I was referring to his statement : “I am working with a supplier to see if I can get the cans printed directly on them”. Not from Barbasol. See post 24.
I was saying if he is buying from a supplier (again, not Barbasol), he won’t need to go to Barbasol for licensing. If he went and told them he was getting cans printed elsewhere, they would definitely have issues. But if he doesn’t say anything, only sells on a small run, he won’t be on their radar. That is what I was saying. Most people here stay below the radar, but if his run gets too big and attracts too much attention, it is the studio he would have an issue with, and most likely even Barbasol when they find him printing cans somewhere else. And yes, I am confident in my statement. I work in the collectibles industry and the company I work for holds almost 30 licenses from different film franchises.
Over the past 2 years I have been on a quest for the most accurate Cryocan replica from the original Jurassic Park movie. It took a lot of work, but I believe I have got there. I just finished a pilot run of about 25 units which went to members of the Jurassic Park Motor Pool. I am planning my next run now and wanted to see if anyone on here would like one. If you are interested the work I did to get to this point you can find my other forum post documenting my progress and all the improvements I have made over the past two years.
