Thank you.  I cant take 100% credit.  I use a vinyl plotter to cut my stencils.  I am not a hands on artist, but i can work my way around Adobe Illustrator enough to fake it.  I have done hand cuts, but gave them up out of frustration.

Some basic tips
1.) Use iDye Poly for really bright and bold colors.  Rit was good, but they changed the formula about a year ago.
2.) Use Oracle 651 or 631 vinyl instead of contact paper.  You can find it online or at any sign store. 
3.) if you are gonna hand cut, use fresh blades.  nothing worse than being almost done and having a dull blade ruin your work. 
4.) Learn Adobe illustrator or inkscape.  This makes stencils easier.  (#1 for me)
5.) practice on misprints.  I buy boxes of random misprints from Discraft and DD.  They are usually under $10 each.  Once dyed, sell them for double to a buddy. Its worth it IMO.
6.) Goof Off to remove stamps, not goo gone or acetone.

I cant really think of any other tips, but I can try to answer any questions.  I am gonna try to come to tags next weekend, maybe we can go into more detail.

  If you are really gonna dye a lot, it's worth getting the plotter.  After the initial cost of the plotter, It cost me about $1-2 per disc for vinyl and transfer tape.

Just realized when I erased my facebook, it erased all the links i posted.  Here a few from my archives.  Some retired, some lost in the area.  Sadly none of these are in my bag anymore.

Already registered myself.  I will contact Towch again.  They sent a CTP pack for the J-town Fest, maybe they will do the same for this.

Thanks Jesse.  You ran yet another great event.  I had to leave early after the round.  I hope everyone liked the Towches.  I actually got to use mine for the first time today.  Thanks again and see you guys soon,

Just received my CTP pack from Towch. They forgot the stickers and mini scrubbers, but we got the 5 towel pouches, a banner for the event, and 3 CTP markers.

I don't know how to give them out so that is up to you guys. I will get there about an hour before registration. I will bring them and we can decide on a plan.

Here is their link for anyone curious about them.

:( this is the response I got back.

We were unable to find any events mentioned or shown for your October event. We regretfully must decline the sponsor pack without confirmation of a valid event.

I told him that I would contact him for the next event that can be confirmed on PDGA. So this time it's an unfortunate no, but I hope to still be able to get a CTP pack in the future.

I really like the wind flag.  On Thursday we were saying how #9 would be great with one on top of the pole in the fairway, but at $30 each I understand why we don't see more.

The last message I received from Towch they said they just needed to do some confirmation on there end and we may have something setup. I don't think we need the FB page, but if we do I will let you know ASAP. I just want to contribute something to the fest.

Sounds like we don't need an events page as long as we take pictures. I will follow up and let you know what I can do.

Might be a dumb question, but is there a round of golf going on too???  If so, I'd be willing to purchase a CTP pack from a new company Towch. They just want to grow their company. I attached the message they sent to me. If this is something that j-town would like, let me know.

From Towch-  That was posted prior to our 100 Towch giveaway. What we do offer is a Towch CTP pack. It's $15. You get 5 units, a banner, some decals and some mini-scrubbers. With 3 CTP markers for you to use. Give away a couple per hole or save 2 for ring of fire... We need photos from the event and it must have a fb event page to be considered. (Essentially, the $15 covers shipping.)
