When I first read this a couple of days ago I thought it sounded like it could be a spam email, or if it was a phone call I'd put it in the same category as a telemarketer. Today, after reading it again, I still feel the same .... and I don't buy from those types.
That's what I thought at first, but after looking around Google for a while, I couldn't find anything other than his one website as the source. So I think it's just a person who invented something and is at the beginning stages of selling it.
I rarely have a problem with peeling. I dump the boiling water, refill the pot with some cold tap water for a minute or two until i can touch the eggs, then the eggs go into a large bowl filled with really cold water (or, water that's been in the fridge for a good hour prior since I don't keep ice around). Cold contracts, and the egg pulls away from the shell. The only time I have a problem is if my bowl is too small for the number of eggs, then some of them don't get cold enough.
The other method I know some folks swear by is poking a hole in the bottom with a needle before cooking. I always meant to try that.
I agree with Chris, you're asking $250 for a kit, I wouldn't buy into it unless I got full company info.
Also, there are some questions that come to mind - one by reading your customer reviews which is can the resulting "peel" be varnished? And I see there is some warm heat involved in making the medium work, so how does the finished art react in hot weather? Does it get sticky or runny? That could present problems later on if the painting ends up behind glass it could stick, or it could end up a fuzzy painting by collecting dust. How does this paint react to sunlight vs. a regular painting? What is the paint made of, is it paint or dye or what?
If the machine was working great before the needle change, I would say it's the needle that could be the problem. Not all needles are exactly the same. It may be that your needle is coming up short (or coming down short) and not reaching the far enough to grab the bobbin thread. I would try some other needles. And make sure there's no crud in the bobbin area.
"Branding" is a real overstatement here, as far as online crafters go. Most are going out of business as soon as they upload their first item for sale. They'll take your logo that's a circle and force it into a rectangle sized banner, breaking the first rule of "branding", not noticing that it looks hideous that way and not really caring if it does, so long as they don't have to pay you extra to make them a proper store or blog banner.
Did you guess yet I'm also a graphic designer? Well, I gave up the crafter crowd some years ago in favor of pre-made stuff I sell on Zazzle. If I have to make a profit of $15, I'm not going to suffer through never-ending "convos" and impossible requests from folks who barely know how to turn on their printer, much less how to print those awesome stickers they said they wanted.
There's a reason why etsy has so many logo sellers carrying $15 price tags. Just sayin'.
All good advice. It could be a pretty good seller at Christmas craft shows. You might want to enhance your visual experience, since you're not filling them with toys yourself, with a photo insert in the see-through pocket(s). For example, take a photo of some lego characters or crayons, etc. in the size/shape of the pocket, then print it out and insert it into the pocket so people can see just what the deal is when they're looking at it. I would go so far as to make a little insert list of theme things folks could fill it with. Grandparents, in particular, can always use some new ideas.
What I would do is make a bag insert - a panel with pockets - and attach it to the inside of the bag with snaps or velcro. That way you can test out what works/doesn't and you can change things over time if needed. Just take a newspaper or grocery bag to trace the size of the inside and you're good to go.
I think I would make the bag more like the ones with the zipper; you can see the body (front and sides) is just a long rectangle. Sew the zipper to that first. Then the lid looks to be the lid and the back side of the body; sew the zipper to that next because it will be less restricting before it's all connected together at the sides and bottom. Then all you have to do is sew the body together, then sew the body/box to the bottom. Then sew the handles on the outside of the body.
If it's a nylon bag or nylon blend, it would be impossible to guaranty any kind of result because nylon isn't typically colored with dye, it's most likely a different process, and depending on the process, bleach may or may not work; regular bleach can disintegrate nylon and not affect the color anyway. I would try RIT color remover in the washing machine. I would also prepare myself to kiss the bag goodbye, whatever the method chosen.
Indeed, Chris is right, the uses for a 3-inch box aren't numerous. Sure, you can sell them, but you have to sell them for peanuts, around $1 per inch, and you'll have better luck if you're in a show next to a jewelry crafter or someone who sells something that can fit in your box. Probably 15 years ago, or when they weren't so plentiful, I was buying a bit of a collection of boxes, and the 8-inch ones - highly decorated - were still only getting around $15.
