Keychain/Cell charm resources?
« on: January 14, 2009, 12:24:49 PM »

I noticed a couple of threads had some really good resources for making buttons and stickers, which are fairly common objects that sell pretty well.

Would anyone know a good resource for taking illustrated images and instead of doing the stuff I mentioned, putting them on little laminated charms for things like keychains and cell charms? I know there's a way to do them at home (hopefully something other than "shrinky dinks"), but I can't recall how. Also, I would prefer to do them digitally, so any online resource that people can vouch for would be appreciated.

I suppose one thing you could do is buy keychain kits and cell straps seperately, and put the straps onto the keychain-charm instead of the metal keyring.  I've been poking around looking at straps, too, but I haven't seen much in the way of plastic.

Before you spend any money, always check with whomever is running the AA you are going to.  If it is A-kon, I would HIGHLY recommend talking to Hastur.

What kind of illustrations?  Are they yours, your own art, or are you wanting to use illos that others have done, to make the keychain/thingie?

As long as it's your own illos, you're golden.

Yeah I tried google, too. Found the Zazzle place, but wasn't sure what to think. I'd prefer to have a variety of images. The last link was awesome, thanks. =) I think I may do that, and make em myself.

If you can figure out 15 different ways to word what you want, Google is the best thing any artist can possibly have.
