2019 decals coming soon?

Here's the update (quick facts). The UER Store has seen:
  • 70 orders in 9 months
  • 44 from USA, 25 from Canada, 1 from Australia
  • 561 decals mailed out
  • Currently the store is 74% of the way to turning a profit.
And now in more detail:
  • Today I adjusted some of the prices to make less popular decals more affordable
  • I just sold out of Large Kirkbride design decals, while supplies of the Infiltration logo and website hex pattern decals are also dwindling (4 and 11 decals, respectively)
  • I've received orders from folks that didn't even know about UER, and one from someone who found UER through the Etsy site
  • Running a store like this one is a long game. Investing in inventory ($600 of my own money) with the potential to eventually cover all of Av's costs.
  • Buying decals in bulk saves money, so I end up with things like 96 Barn of Doom decals to move.. It also means I need to think orders through carefully and order lots of product in long intervals.
  • Because the store hasn't broken even yet, another order means investing more flySparro cash, at the risk of slump sales, but also with the potential of bringing in good money for UER. It could go either way.
  • I would like to include some more decals (like this or this) but it is difficult to know how they would sell.
  • I have added Donation 10 and Donation 25 items on the store for folks that want to get a lot of decals for their money and just pay a nice round amount. Better value than any of the combo packs.

  • Please take the time to submit thoughts on decals to this thread. Possible thoughts include:

    • "I'd love to see a UER _______, I'd buy it in a second"
    • "I would order ten decals of IndoAnomaly's butt"
    • "I think you should produce the ______ decal that ______ designed!"

    Providing feedback helps me avoid producing items that nobody would buy, and keep you, the explorers, satisfied and loaded with cool swag.

Thanks for reading! Visit the UER Store on Etsy and share your thoughts on future swag.

Think I grabbed the last Kirkbride sticker which I bought for someone. I got a bunch of other ones, and really liked the manhole ones. Those straps were also a good idea to have in the shop.

I needed to cover up the [company I work for] logo so I could use this notebook and not be embarrassed.
This is where I write directions to explores. I don't have a smartphone and I usually don't lug my laptop around. I had gotten my partner a GPS but he doesn't lock his car, so it's gone now. Anyway, this little black book is a great stash of coordinates, and now it's fashionable, in my opinion.

Hi Reverend Hearse!

We ran out of Infiltration stickers! Waiting for another order. It's just tricky because ordering in bulk can cut the cost in half or more, so it's difficult to just order more of one or two items without driving the prices up.

Before you ask which way to go, remember where you've been.

It's time!

We're now accepting suggestions / requests for any new decals (or swag).

I will be placing another bulk decal order in the next month here, to restock those oh-so-popular Infiltration decals, among others.

Let us know what you'd like to see here.

What inspired the UER Yacht Club stickers? I feel like there is a story behind the name.

See here and here.



I think the sinking yacht sticker is great; most of what we explore is on it's way out.
Good lines, clean, simple, but eye catching and a bit cryptic.

Sinking ships are also a UER tradition; a way of indicating a crippled or hopelessly derailed thread.
Perhaps started by Sleeper Spirit, certainly popularized by him.




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.
