Topic: CSA Logo - Buttons (24 msgs / 680 lines)
1) From: Sharon Allsup
Does the CSA have a logo?  If not, anyone want to take a stab at 
designing one?
I have multiple sizes of button presses and can make buttons and 
magnets quite easily.  If one of you wants to take a stab at a logo 
I'll make 'em into buttons and we can announce our snobbery to 
the world!  I already do small custom jobs, haven't had the time to 
do it as a full-fledged business like many others.
OK, it's probably obvious I'm bored and trying to put off my 
systems assurance case study research .... but ... logo should fit 
cleanly into a 2.75" circle (for a 3" button face); be visible and 
readable from several feet away which means keep the text volume 
minimal and the size large; and from a technical press standpoint, 
try to avoid having a circle surrounding the logo UNLESS it's bled 
out around the sides.  Better to bleed out to 3.5" so it wraps 
around the edge of the button (crimps are on the underside); that 
way it's not a precision nightmare trying to line up the cut-out 
button artwork with the shells on the die.

Great fun idea. Could look good on the alt.coffee t-shirt currently going
into another  production run. (we ordered one for each of us:-) Just in case
you don't follow a.c the text on the t-shirt, in the shape of a cup, seen athttp://www.printroom.com/_vti_bin/ViewImage.dll?userid=frcn&album_id(810&image_id=6&show=image¶mE399
 is as follows:
I made a double espresso today and..
it was really quite tasty except I should have used eighteen grams of
coffee instead of seventeen grams and it should have been ground about
one-half click finer in a grinder with flat burrs and the humidity in
the kitchen was about three percent higher today than yesterday and
the flavor balance was a little too far towards bitter and was lacking
some of the chocolate taste and fruity overtones I like and I noticed
that the crema was about three millimeters thinner than last Monday
but the pull would have made a good ristretto if I had stopped at
twenty-three seconds instead of going to twenty-seven seconds since
the crema wasn't as rusty-colored as it should be and the water
temperature was about one half of degree too hot at the beginning of
the pull and about a degree too cool at the end of the pull but
stability was good in the middle thanks to my PID control and possibly
it would have been tastier if I had brewed it in my press pot or my
vacuum brewer but I should have taken that Sumatran Mandheling in my
home-roasted blend about six clicks further into second crack and
maybe it should have been post-roast blended and I think that three
days rest is a little too long for this blend because of the
dark-roasted Yemen Mocha I use and I?m going to tamp to thirty-two
pounds instead of thirty-three pounds with my next double shot because
that worked well last week and maybe I should try one of those
stainless steel convex tampers instead of my flat aluminum tamper and
I really need to get a triple basket and I?m think it?s time that I
move up to a rotary pump model or at least one with a heat exchanger
although I have had my eye on a new four group commercial machine for
some time now, but seriously, other than that
...it was the best espresso I?ve ever had!
If you think I?m obsessed, you should meet the rest of the group!

schweeeeeet .... do you think you could come up with a sharp 
enough printer that it'd be readable shrunk down to fit on a 6" 
button/magnet face?  (I can do 6" but wouldn't be willing to just give 
those away, the 6" blanks cost waaaaaaaay too much compared 
to the 3")
I've given some serious thought to making magnetic buttons for 
each bean type, and using them to indicate what bean is in what 
jar.  After a year it'd be a fridge-covering record of what had been 
drunk LOL

I don't think mike was suggesting that the CSA button should reproduce 
the alt.coffee t-shirt.  My take on what he was saying was that once a 
button is done it would go well with the t-shirt.   I don't think he 
proposed an actual LOGO.
The only Idea I can come up with is not fit to print.

Reminds me of Ravenswood's "No Wimpy Wines" logo.  ;)   Me?  I prefer to
focus on the positive, not the negative.

8) From: Ed Needham
http://www.homeroaster.com/intro1.htmlScroll to near the bottom of the page.  It says "Bad Coffee" with an
international 'NO' symbol over it.

9) From: TFisher511
The quote below the Bad Coffee logo might be more appropriate. Both are right 
on topic.

Since I'm already set up with CafePress I'm willing to take a CSA Logo and
set up a little store where we can get shirts, bags, hats, and *coffee cups*
with the logo.  Since this won't be 'my' stuff it will be priced right about
the CafePress base price.
Haven't read the whole thread yet so if someone else is already offerred
then just ignore me.
Enjoy!

Charley,
    I sent you a copy of the no bad coffee jpg off list.  The link to 
the picture of the alt.coffee t-shirt was from Mike,  I have deleted 
the e-mail that had it so you might have to go to the archives to fit 
it.

Charley,
    I did not bother to check the size, if I had I would have used 
ImageReady to trim it down to a reasonable size.  I would prefer 
something better also but I don't have any good ideas.

How it got to 250 I have no idea. of course. Don't even know
what a "k" is (please don't tell me, neither;o)
The link to the alt.coffee tshirt that I couldn't get to was
posted a few times as part of this same thread. I still don't
see that "no bad coffee" logo on your site-wierd, since
everything else shows up (I guess)

I don't know the mechanism by which it grew but by the time I harvested 
it off the page, it was up to 168k.  Things don't usually grow when I 
collect them although I don't do it that much.  Mostly stuff for 
classes that I want to be able to show incase the internet is not 
working when I teach the class.

we know we are addicted to coffee-but i would keep away from refering to
hard stuff (except hard beans)
Staying on Mikes alternative track ("Who says I'm cracked? or  If you think
I'm cracked you don't know coffee beans!-etc") how about
 "My bean is so cracked they threw me into the Coffee Bin"
or
 "We're not nuts, we're just a mixed bag of Beans (perhaps a bit cracked,
though;-)"
Best,
Myron
