We just got QS stickers in the mail today:

And I am really excited about them!

They represent one of our first forays into paid advertising. I am planning a more legit post with an actual give-away in it, but know now that we will be handing out a lot of these to our fans. Here's why I like stickers for advertising:

-they are inexpensive, which is good

-They allow people to show support on what they like, be it their binder or deckboxes or anything

-They are more visible than T-shirts. I don't wear T-shirts with anything printed on them unless it's my vintage Admiral Kirk from Wrath of Khan(!!!) shirt or some residual thrift-store shirts from when I was more of a hip-star. Shirts are also expensive unless you screenprint your own (which I can do, but I am too busy to atm).

-They have trade-specific uses - my dream is that if two people each have a QS sticker on their binder, then they are extra-cool trading partners to each other and tell us about it.

-They are easy to send out and pass around.

Promotion-wise, I see sending out two stickers to anyone who signs up for the promotion, so they can have one and ideally give the other to a friend, who will also use it. I'd like to get pictures of people who use them and put them on the site.

Just about the most important thing in running a social lifestyle site like QS is creating a "tribe" of users who you take care of and who honor you by using your products. These stickers are a great branding opportunity in that regard. Special thanks to the guys at Yo! MTG Taps for having a pretty rad name and telling us where to get quality stickers.

By keeping up closely with emerging trends in the field, Doug is able to predict what cards to buy and when to sell them for a substantial profit. Since the Eternal market follows a routine boom-bust cycle, the time to buy and sell short-term speculative investments is often a narrow window. Because Eternal cards often spike in value once people know why they are good, it is essential for a trader to be connected to the format to get great buys before anyone else.

  1. these are ok i guess,but i could print one of these in 30 seconds. i relly like this site and im going to recomend something i cant belevie i havent seen on the bigger sites. why not have a free deckbox template on the main page ? printer friendly and free add for you ,free deck box for players,(minus sheet of card stock and a little ink).
    put you logo all over it ,word of mouth will spread easily, even if people dont want the logo box they will visit the site for the free templates. side load boxes ,whatever its really easy, i have made several boxes just from measuring store box, cutting temp and glueing.i have one made from a lightbulb box even.
    like i said its free to everyone,basicly and no shipping is more add money for you to expand with.

    most deck boxes are all one peice so it would be print ,cut,fold,and glue i can make one in 5 min.

    think about it,hit me up if you need help

  2. That's a sweet idea, we'll do it. If you have advice, email me at doug at quietspeculation dot com

    And if you could print up 250 of these stickers, that'd be cool too : )
