Making Different Mills Vendor Mints

Got some of this in a short version and photo shopped to be large enough then made them up. Something different. Rick B

Nice job. Turned out great! It takes a little time to do these right, with the foil and all, but well worth the effort.
Sure a far cry from tossing in a load of Life Savers or Certs, which are nowheres near original. Not to mention, that
over time, Life Savers are going to go to hell, and not be edible anyway., and if they start to soften and leak, then
you have a mess on your hands.

Awesome talent there how did you print those on a home printer? Gorgeous machine too by the way I love the vendors for some reason. Did you go through all this for one machine? If you have another I would love to see it!

SLOT DYNASTY you are correct. Making them is all the fun and you appreciate them more.

Richard, I found laminated ones that were to small and had to photo shopped them to be a hair longer and to make a full sheet of 12 to be cut out. I never seen this style before so I am holding them close to my vest pocket :) I am thinking of selling them as whole completed pieces. I enjoy putting them together. Rick B

I am thinking for the time and money in them I would ask $1.00 each plus $6.00 priority shipping. I have about 45 minutes in time to complete them maybe an hour. What do you think? Rick B

I just would buy the paper labels and glue them up myself. I just bought a 100 rolls of breath savers mints
that fit my machines on the cheap off amazon. But you have inspired me to think outside the box and I admire
your skill and talents. I'm still a week or two away from filling my latest project, and then another couple weeks
on the next and the next ugh.

So roughly $48.00 plus the shipping (I think my FOK ,4 column takes 48 of them?).
don't sound to bad. you need to have the "kids" over for the summer.... "help makes these for me , a summer vacation project" ; should reduce the price down a bit. use only the females ,they have better eye - hand coordination with craft projects, And 100% better at color matching !!

Want a side project ? I need a set of reel strips made...... for a "1950" pace , Harrah's jackpot only slot. been to busy to make them myself.

you recheck your numbers, see if you really want to make these to resell, ect. & let us know.
currently my machine has a partial set of the "1933 chicago century of progress" type in blue.

Would go $50.00 shipped. As for other stuff like Reel. Not sure how I would go about that one. I am only tinkering around with some of this. I have to busy of a life at the moment to start doing that much work :) Rick B

Rick; I was joking on the reel strips...... BUT , you do do fine work. actually these strips were casino made , not to be found out & about being reproduced.

the price on the "mints" sounds good !
