    Just a quick one week poll.

    I have had a couple of people contact me about getting VMB Wristbands. I am all out and I would need to put in a new order for a couple hundred more.

    I'm trying to gauge what the interest is on the board for new wristbands.

    Things I am hoping to do differently this time:
    - No stripper glitter!!!
    - Larger size for bigger wrists

    Any suggestions or comments? If not, please answer the poll.

    Also, someone contacted me a long time ago with a source for larger sized wristbands (9" I think). Can you send me a PM if you're still around as I seem to have misplaced the link. :oops:

    Yay for no stripper glitter! I got two of them and one of them still has the OG stripper glitter, the other does not. I kinda washed it off, lol.

    While I will mourn the absence of stripper glitter, thankfully I have my own supply of midlife glitter to fill in the blanks! Yay for new bands!

    3.0 will complete the trifecta for me! Although when mine arrives I’ll need to adjust my will so the kids won’t fight over them when I go to that big casino in the sky...

    I find wristbands to be uncomfortable but I am happy to pitch in the cash if needed.

    What if I had a larger band available? It appears I can get them 1/2" and 1" larger than the last two batches. A number of people have asked me to find a larger size.

    So far the yesses are beating the nos. I guess I'll move forward.

    Like I said, I'm looking at the 1/2" larger band right now. I may do a small batch of them to see how they work out, even if the price is a little higher on my end for a smaller batch.

    I'm thinking the same green band, but with yellow lettering. Should be much easier to spot than the original version, which is what I was hoping to achieve with the stripper glitter version. :)

    I've got some shopping around to do this week, but I'll report back with what I find. Please let me know in this thread what kinds of things you're looking for in version 3.0.

    I’d definitely be interested in the earlier version. I think yellow or even white lettering would work. IMHO, the white lettering would really pop and stand out. Between trips I’ll wear one of the newer version ones inside out to wear off the glitter but it doesn’t work too well. Loved the pre-glitter vintage. I also think getting some larger bands would be sweet. I’ve had two of them snap on me in Vegas. I’d be happy to chip in to get some new ‘old’ ones….

    In my case it's not a matter of size; things like jewelry and watches sometimes give me a rash. Because I am delicate and weak. However if I ever make it to a meetup I will try to exhibit it somehow.

    IIRC I once suggested a black version with maybe green or gold lettering,
    on size, a size that would perfectly fit a nice tip wad of cash would totally work for me.
    currently using random purple broccoli rubber bands and it's near perfectly sized for that, and my skinny wrist even, actually.

    I’ll go for a couple normal size. I’ll take whatever you decide.
