    And I was going to say, I don't see you making any profit from those prices.
    Remember you have to put Foam, weights, glue and labour into those prices.

    Yeah you WILL need photos. Only way you can convince people. If I were you I would put up the finest product.

    I think he is just trying to contribute to the community. Believe it or not, there is a way to make short stefans for less than 7 cents each lol.

    We are trying to be friendly, but your still lacking on trying to improve your grammar and spelling.
    And again you're obviously not reading the rules as you just double posted.

    well I'm not surprised kingcam isn't exactly very friendly.

    A) he's not the friendliest of people around
    B) you're trying to cut into his 'area', I suppose, which is stefan-making out of Melbourne.
    C) people can't take you seriously, as toobz said, with illegible posts. As you can see, toobz made a mistake by writing "your" instead of "you're".. but I'm not too fussed, I could still read what he meant. What's 'inrest'?!

    It's because some people don't like 'competing' with other businesses.

    If I were you I would take Toobz friendly advice. No BSM'ing Please =).

    That's why spelling and grammar and 'not double posting' is so important. If you're going to try to sell a product to someone, and type with poor grammar, no one is going to take you seriously. Double posting makes your look desperate.

    If I were you I would take this time to reconsider and fix yourself up so that other members can trust you and take your 'interests' more seriously.

    I'm one of the very few that doesn't care for competition of stefan making. Do what you want, and if you do make stefans just as good as a competitor's at a cheaper price I don't see why not.

    Posting a picture requires this code:

    I voted "yes", because the more people making stuff, inspiring and teaching others, and contributing to the community, the better.

    (even though I have enough darts at the moment, and won't be buying any)

    Multiple people selling the same product leads to competition and marketing.

    From the photo, your darts look like anyone else's.


    • What's special about your darts?
    • Why would I buy your darts instead of Cam's, or that guy over there?


    What can you do to get people interested in your product, and make it stand out from the crowd? Can you use different coloured foam or hot glue, for example?

    Maybe people could be willing to pay a bit extra for that something special -- if you're the only guy selling striped green darts with pink tips, for example.

    Cam pointed out that your darts are "too cheap" -- make sure that you're charging a fair price so that you don't lose out on the deal. Unless you got your raw materials from the hard rubbish, you probably paid retail cost. You can't make a profit or break even unless you charge for at least your cost of parts, your time, and a profit margin.

    I don't have a problem with more people selling stuff; just be careful that your contribution to the community doesn't leave you out of pocket.

    Yeap. Shadownerfer. I'm going to support you on this one. If you can make better darts for a cheaper price? Everybody else who is complaining can go suck one because who knows! You could be really good at this, just because your writing isn't good, doesn't mean your hands on isn't good.
    (note: just remember to fix your grammar).

    Go prove them wrong =).

    Just make sure you actually make better darts or else all this support is for naught. Only sell the quality product. If you make one dud dart, don't sell it. That's how the others do it.

    Those hot glue dome's don't look half bad too =).

    It seems that the only people complaining about your product (not the gramma/spelling/double posting etc.) is the other people making stefens.

    But gotta say guys, that's business!

    I like the idea of having as many people as possible making and selling. Gives potential customers a bigger choice, and breeds competition.

    If you guys can't match his prices, then beet him somewhere else. (Quality, Service, Range, whatever)


    I vote YES, however personally I'll probably be looking at Silitips rather than stefens.

    A little more info on EXACTLY what you're offering would be helpful though.

    Is there an issue with the hot glue breaking off? I think some of the hot glue darts last war cracked up. I just thought it may be the brand of Glue you are using?
