I announced back in March that the Society’s membership kit was getting a redo. After a couple years of the “Rocky Butte Light” logo, I wanted something cleaner and simpler, more akin to the Great Northern Railway (US) logo from the mid-twentieth century. Since the pre-order went live, I’ve gotten several orders for the new kit. Thank you for the support!
But I’m sure there’s some of you out there that have the old kit and are perhaps reluctant to purchase the new one. You already have your membership card and the old design in stickers, buttons, and a patch. Why bother with the new design?
Well, there are a couple unique things happening in the new kit. I’m going to share them with you today in hopes to tempt you. Also to tempt you: The pre-order sale will continue until June 1st! You can get the basic kit for $20, and the deluxe which includes a year of Postcard Club for $35.
Stickers: Like the previous kit, you’ll get three SoTS logo stickers. Unlike the previous kit, one of the stickers will be reflective! Yes, that’s right! Stick it on the fender/mudguard of your old Raleigh Superbe for both extra safety and to let the world know that you are a proud member of the Society! The white/red/black color scheme works well with the white bit on the fender and the red reflector.
Pin: In the past, I offered basic one-inch badges. I always wanted to move to The Next Level and get nice enamel-and-metal pins, but the high cost scared me away. Not this time. For the first time ever, Society of Three Speeds has fancy enamel pins! These 1.25″ pins are expertly made by Falls Creek Outfitters, the same folks who make our patches (see above). Check it out in all its glory:
So, you want these new and cool things? Purchase the new Membership Kit. I don’t know if I’ll be offering any of these things a-la-carte to existing members, so buying the new kit at the low price is the best way to get in on the action!
And remember, you will get:
- A patch
- Three stickers
- A button
- The membership card
Here’s how to order:
- Basic Membership ($20 plus s/h) from my Etsy Shop.
- Deluxe Membership ($35 plus s/h) from my Etsy Shop.
The special prices are good until June 1st, after that they will go up most likely by $5.
And don’t forget, I still have the old membership kits on discount! For only $10 plus s/h you’ll get the old patch and three stickers of the old design. This special price will also continue until June 1st or until I exhaust my supply, whichever comes first.
