The Wetpixel Quarterly team is thinking of producing a 1-yr collectors box, which will hold (not surprisingly) 4 issues of Wetpixel Quarterly. We are sold out of issue 3 at the moment, but have enough in our archives to produce about 50 year-one bundles, which we will likely sell enclosed in aluminum, laser-engraved collectors boxes.

We had a sample of the box produced, and it looks beautiful (see below).

So the question is, would you buy the standalone box for $59.95 + shipping? If we get enough interest, we'll do a larger run!

Great Idea; make sure it says Wetpixel Quarterly and the year on the spine for the bookshelf. (I know you probably planned that anyway.)
Nikon D800, Nikon D7000, Nauticam, Inons, Subtronic Novas. Lens collection - 10-17, 15, 16, 16-35, 14-24, 24-70, 85, 18-200, 28-300, 70-200, 60 and 105, TC's. Macs with Aperture and Photoshop.

Yeah, we might have to use a fancy sticker for the spine for the "Year 1" label, so we can get more made at once. They get cheaper if you order a bunch. :) Whatever we do, it will look nice...

Just a thought; how about bundling this in as a subscription option from now on?

OK. We're pricing out engraved metallic stickers for the side panel and shipping to San Francisco. These things are expensive, and we may have to push them up past $60 a bit. I'll keep you informed. :)

Eric,

I'm sure you've thought of this, and it's too late for redesign anyway, but I would think a 2- or 3-year capacity box would cost about the same, and be more practical for more people. You wouldn't even have to have it say what year it was for - just send along preprinted labels for each year, and people could label their own. Just a thought. I'll buy one as shown, but I was just thinking a lot of people might prefer less of a cost for case vs. subscription... :)

I agree. It's never too late for a redesign unless it's been ordered.

Hi Eric, does that price include the back issues from this year?

Yes, I'd be iterested, but I'd be after the magazines themselves too, as I haven't gotten around to signing up for them yet.
