I would go in on one with the Makerspace's name on it.

I will throw in $25 if we want to go down that route.

Count me in for $25 also - it would be cool if we could get the logo on it.

Thanks,

I agree we should go for the logo.  ($350).  I'll put in $25 too.

I propose that the Board of Directors vote to match any member contributions dollar per dollar up to $350.  

I will also chip in $25 of my own money.

I just put together a Wiki page to track group buys - it's here:

And I'll put $25 toward this.  I think it is a fun, social thing to do.  Someone will have to go find it after it's installed, so we can get a picture of it at the 'space.

We're at $175 - half way there.

Should we ask someone to make some art?  I'd love to see the Makerspace logo in the middle, with some tesla-esque stuff around it.

I'm down for $25 and, now that Maker Faire is over, I could volunteer to do some custom design work (That is, I don't care who does it, but I'll toss my hat into the ring if no one else offers).

Interesting...  You were just the person I was thinking of ;)

Why don't you throw out an idea or two on this thread?

(Your pledge added to Wiki - new total $200)

Tom Gr. just pledged $200, bringing the total up to $400!

A single brick is $350 - so we're already there.

If we keep getting pledges, we can purchase an additional brick.

If we get to $1200, we can get a 4 brick array.

I can champion this. Brant proposed a board match. Was anything decided?

It is listed on the the indiegogo campaign that " The sooner you back the project, the better the location of your brick"

I can purchase the brick tonight and collect the pledges later.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, We voted this down. As one of the no votes, I will tell you that I personally love Mr. Tesla. There are more important things to spend precious member dues on (cough, buy the building, cough).
 
I talked it over with Lara last night, and we are personally chipping in $25 to the cause!

The makerspace will have a 8x8 brick with a logo at the Tesla museum! They will send ask for our logo and text after the campaign is over on November 8th.

We get a logo and 2 lines (20 characters per line). One line will say Milwaukee Makerspace. What's the opinion on the other one?

I have received payment from Shane and will be updating the wiki as I receive from others.

20 characters or less :) We could always include the "Milwaukee Makerspace" in our logo and include a 40 character statement

I don't think we could have text that small even in the graphic.  It wouldn't hold up to traffic over time.

Do spaces count?  If not it could be:
Making a better world
It is 21 characters though with the spaces...

Maybe:
Community of Makers

Thanks,

How large of a logo will they let us use?

An 8x8" brick is a healthy size and I could definitely work the text into the logo very easily.

If that were to work, I'd like to offer my own saying (made for a poem on the greatness of makerspaces which I still haven't finished because projects) "Makers unite for the glory of Things."

Well, it doesn't have to have spaces...  How about:
Making aBetterWorld

That is 19 characters with only the one space and I don't think it is hard to read.

If the graphic can take over the whole brick, then Shane may have a better idea.

Thanks,
Joe Rodriguez

The recently received logo parameters follow

Logos should be emailed as an IBM-compatible file. Acceptable file formats include EPS, PCL, PCX, CDR OR PLT (PDF, JPG or BMP images cannot be accepted). Images should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and should be provided in black and white. Logos not supplied in the specified format can be received as true camera-ready art but a minimum charge of $100.00 will be assessed per logo. The company that engraves the bricks may also require an additional charge if the logo is highly complex.

I would to like to send something in the next 7-10 days.

I plan on sending the following 2 lines for publishing

Milwaukee Makerspace
Make a Better World

I have been updating the group buy wiki page as I receive payments. Let me know if I forgot to mark somebody.
