Travis, a tip of my hat to you.  What a fabulous idea/gift. Your mom must be proud! Just want you to know I really enjoy your creativity and thoughtfulness.  Now if I just lived in Texas I'd come and see your band.  Ah, well.  So it goes.

Those are great!  The hand-drawn pictures of consumer products remind me of some of Roz Chast's cartoons.

If you'd like advice from a not-so-successful web store owner, I'd say, try designing large bin stickers!

You can print them up like at a copy shop or sumthin, then sell them via your website for a few $$'s. If they are super successful, try a wholesale print shop after that.*
Configure them in different sizes for different bins.
This would also solve the sharpie decay issue, which unfortunately, happens rather fast-ish on the plastic that I've used them on, like 2-3 years.
They'd also be cheap to ship, certainly cheaper than trying to mail off a bin lid, and then they could be fastened to other surfaces as well........

And if you do go this route, I'd like to be first in line to order said stickers.

And while I've not tried it, I do hear goodish things about cafepress-I know there are several threads on this elsewhere in craftster......

*because of Day Job, I know several sources if you're interested.  The founder of our company had his friends print up a giant red sticker with the white letters 'BUSH' that's designed to go under the 'STOP' on a stopsign and he handed them out to everyone in town.....clever eh?  Too bad the cops don't agree........

Wow I am impressed! Your artwork on the recycling bins are awesome! I like painters pens too! They are way better than sharpies Cheesy
