    Hello
    I currently put the plastic wraps with no logo on all my clients racquets after stringing. I always buy them from GSS. I am wondering how you all print or have your logo put on? I would like to have it done but I just don't know how to.

    Does GSS have an online site where you can buy stuff or is it only available if you go? (sorry, off topic)

    Wouldn't that cost too much ? $15 for the string job isn't much. start providing extra service like logo on every plastic cover, it would start taking away from the bottom line.

    Yeah, but advertising goes a long way.

    One hitting buddy of mine came to the courts with his normal frame, but I noticed a stenciled logo on his strings.

    When I asked what it meant, it was the logo of the store where he got it strung.

    If I hadn't noticed that I wouldn't have asked and he wouldn't have told me about the store......

    Plain bags just cut it.....like the pros, you'll immediately recognize a P1 or **** logo.

    Get your name out there and you'll drum up more business. Stencils and bags are a good place to start.

    The cheapest way to go would be to buy stickers for use on your printer and design your own.

    Contact one of the many plastic bag companies. You would provided them with your artwork which they will create printing plates from. The cost isn't cheap and you had to purchase quite a few (which was fine for us).

    i find it incredibly disrespectful that you used the word "retarted" to describe someones advice to which you asked for, as a father of a mentally challenged son it breaks my heart for you to use this word in this language, not only am i disgusted by your words i am disgusted by your personality

    I have better sense than to Help someone like yourself but i do believe in rescuing LOST souls. What You DON't know is i use a guy that used to string in the tour. He has his little gimmick to Drum up business. He used to do what you are about to do. but he stoped doing it.
    Instead he changed to a Sticker that goes on the throat of the frame with Tension and his business information. IT is NEON colored sticker so it is very noticeble. I get asked about the sticker all the time during matches. They ask me what is that on the throat of the frame ??? i tell them it is my stringer with tension and last strung date on it. and They want to know who i string my rackets with...................:twisted::evil:

    I do agree that such word should be blocked out. such as many other words that is blocked by the forum. Although Sadly enough, lost Soul such as this OP may find a way around it.........:???::???:

    Was hoping to get a GSS starting clamp but I can't find anywhere on their site where they would sell it online.

    Go to their site and on the top click on the stringing tools tab, and everything they have is there. BTW I have different 3 starting clamps, and I like the one I got from gss the best!

    Anyway could Tim Strawn or someone from over at GSS comment on this? I'm sure they know where the best place to have it done is.
