The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Here is the new design for the table to hand out. Let me know what you think. I believe NeedanID will be bringing the old style also.

I have 250 of the old design coming on the August 20th. We can make a couple of biz card holders too for the table this weekend when it’s cool enough to use the laser cutter.

Heads up the QR code on the cards you are having printed no longer works. I just scanned it and it told me the campaign is no longer valid. Do not know if the site used to generate it is down or what. You might want to check on stopping the print. I checked the code on Frank's and it is still working.

Sorry I did not test the QR Code on that card out till just now. I knew I was using the ones I have on the banner I just printed and they are current.

Thanks!

Well. It’s a bummer. We can draw a line through the QR code and the other links are still valid.
Greg, do you have the font file for the new cards? We can laser cut USCM and/or the Aliens legacy on the card holders in the correct font.

I just used the ones posted here previously. I think Moosh posted them last. I will look tomorrow. As for the logo I just used the one at the top of this page.

Do we know what email account was used to set up the old QR code? The Tech support said they can look it up via the orginal email account.

Ive been in contact with the company that created the QR code. The latest message follows.

Hi William,

Thank you for your message.

I see that there is 1 Dynamic QR Code created in the account registered under (redacted)
Dynamic QR Codes created within the free 14-day trial period get deactivated once the trial expires. These Dynamic QR Codes can be edited even after printing and also collect scan statistics.

Static QR Codes will not expire. These cannot be updated and don’t collect any statistics. Unfortunately, it is not possible to convert Static QR Codes into Dynamic QR Codes or vice versa.

An account upgrade to one of our plans will keep Dynamic QR Codes active. To do so, click on https://app.qr-code-generator.com/en/site/upgrade/

In case you would like to use only one Dynamic Website (URL) Code and up to five Static Codes, you can activate here our Free Plan. No editing feature is available on this plan.

If you have any questions, you can reach us at +1-(646)-712-9308 Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm CET. Alternatively, leave me your number, a time and I’ll give you a call back.



So the basic is 5 euro a month and good for 10k hits. I’m not willing to spend that much on a qr code.

Speaking of recruiting and YouTube Aliens Legacy videos, they definitely work, at least one got me to join. This is the one that got me to start collecting parts for my outfit:

Within a minute of watching it, I had ordered BDU's, belt, boots, patches, and pouches. :mrgreen:

Yeah people can moan and complain all they want about the parade but that is what we are known for. And like it or not the color guard is what leads it. I do not own or want a set of service Cs. Nor do I want any real medals/ribbons. Just not my thing. Extremely glad to see this is what made you want to join!

We burned a biz card holder last night and I put the results into the USCM admin FB page.

We have discussed that. Who will print them out and apply them? The cost of doing that is probably the same as the cost of the cards. It is looking more and more like I will not be at Dragoncon Sat. Derek will have the new cards I am having made.

Thanks!

Greg

Card design looks great team, but I notice that the NZCM Delta isn’t on there (could have something to do with none of us being able to travel to international cons? I dunno).

Not picking, merely an enquiry...

Sorry about that. There are several that are not on there. I do not have the files for them. Do you have a vector drawing of the official delta you can send my email? This year's cards were kinda of rushed. I know I would like to get NZ, France, and Mexico if someone can say these are the official recognized deltas and have the vector files.

So I rarely visit this subforum, but I've recently learned that the crappy design for business cards I created in an extreme rush back in 2014 was popular enough to be properly resurrected as the forum's official design/recruitment card.

Some (late) background info/admissions: My PC crapped out shortly before the ALIENS EXPOsed event in Calgary in April 2014 and I hadn't yet reinstalled my advanced editing software, so I made a shoddy attempt with Microsoft Paint (I recall doing it twice, once with a plain white background and again with the forum space background). I used a free QR code generator, but I don't ever recall having to use my email address, so I'm honestly a bit concerned that this company apparently had my details still...

The QR code did in fact lead to the USCM Enlistment Youtube video. For the record, I never anticipated using the cards years on from then, so I wasn't concerned with the length of expiry. I had fully planned to redesign the cards at a later point, but life was busy and I actually haven't gone to any cons since the fall of 2014. I'm going to my first one since then next weekend.

Thank you to Greg who picked up the ball I massively fumbled and then forgot about, and I'm tickled you guys enjoyed the sentiments I intended with the original attempts.
