    How can SmugMug afford to send out thousands of free straps? Is the return business that good?
    80% of all customers who have ever signed up for a SmugMug account in the last 5 years are still with us today, something we're very grateful for. In the meantime, the free photo sharing sites from HP (several of them like Cartogra), Adobe, Microsoft, Epson, Yahoo, Best Buy, Canon (two of them), and Sony have closed.

    I just signed up for one the other day myself though.
    is worth it...
    From my point of view if a company is doing things like this with some of the money I spend on my account makes it a no brainer when it is time to reup thumb.gif
    Is it worth it oh ya check out some of these sites and what can be done to them and there is a whole community just waiting to help you make yours look better when you are ready.
    I know my spelling and grammar are poor some times my spell check says "I got nothing
    for you" and there/ their is no grammar check yet so please forgive me Jesus did.

    As soon as I get some pictures worth muggin' I plan on buying a subscription. Maybe the return is worth it...

    Cause Smugmug rocks. That's why.

    Plus it is tax deductable due to being a form of Advertising. Not to mention pretty good advertising. The more people ask you about your sticker / camera strap and you tell them what a great place Smugmug/DGrin are the more sign up, etc.

    It is very clever advertising as well as good PR for current members.

    Best of both worlds.clap.gif

    Nice to hear that it arrived in the UK that fast. We had two returned for not having customs documents. One was to Canada, dunno about the other. Strange that 1 in a thousand or so get rejected for that reason and the rest go through.

    It would be a lot of work to hand-write customs notes on each international strap.

    That's strange indeed. Glad mine wasn't that 1 in a 1000. Woohoo!
    And I forgot to mention that those stickers arrived even couple of days earlier.

    Thanks again!

    FlyNavy: If that is also your SmugMug nickname, I don't see any orders from you. Can you PM me your address so I can check?

    Ziggar: It looks like your order shipped off last week.

    Hahaha, yeah, we made some adjustments based on feedback we got from the first batch. They are a little bit longer, the silk-screening is better, and the strap material that fastens is "rougher" to prevent slippage.

    Yup, I have your request. I think it will probably go out this next Monday, but maybe sometime later that week.

    I'm in the same boat. I saw Prezwoodz' strap and loved it, was hoping I could manage to get my hands on one! :D

    OK, I guess they all didn't go out the door on the day they arrived. I just don't understand mwink.gif:D

    Just curious where I stand in the queue (account name: LoveNLaughter, nickname: Scott_Quier). Added my request some weeks ago using your web-page/request form while logged in.

    If you sent me a couple or three, I'm sure I would find a way to affix them to my cars :D. I really like the idea of a clear/lettered/screen-printed window sticker - I could get all over that like green on grass (or white on rice, etc).

    Basically, we originally ordered 5,000 straps and ran out of supplies within a few weeks. If you didn't get one at that point, then you were too late. But we decided to order 10,000 more and fulfill all more requests. It took months for them to be manufactured, but they finally arrived two weeks ago and we are shipping them out as fast as we can.

    If you give me your SmugMug nickname or PM your name or address, I can look it up and make sure I still have your order.
