But they are a for-profit business, right? Seems like they are leaving a large amount of money on the table. Seems odd to me.
Gotta consider it this way, they make money on the advertising and footprint of the forum, to have a license plate frame with raised two color lettering is roughly $20 a piece, to get a bulk order for pricing to drop you generally have to buy 100 or more. If You only have 7-10 people purchasing a plate, you are sitting on $1,800 worth of product that the likelyhood of selling over the next year or two is minimal.

Yeah that's kinda lame. They buy the forum to let it die? They have people wanting to grow the following but won't allow them to make promotional items to grow traffic that makes them $? Weird.

I talked to them prior about this but I never really heard back about it, if they give me the OK I'll make a custom run of some, but they won't be as cheap as they were ($15). The last purchase we did was for 200 and it took over 4 years to finally sell most of them..

Just food for thought.

Please talk to them. Show them how quickly all 21 of the frames you had sold out. Shit, I wasn't on the board for less than 20 hours and they were all gone with multiple people begging for more.

You could even start a pre-sale/pre-pay thread...given who you are - I highly doubt anyone would have a problem giving you a pre-payment of $20 or even $40 dollars to get in on a new batch of these (even if production/shipment was months away).

Supply/Demand. I think more people want them now because they are "rare".
