Default Hobby turn Business Advice Welcomed

I have been working on a few designs for a while now for a brand and I had my first run of vinyl decals delivered today. I enjoy exercising my 2nd Amendment right, and thoroughly enjoy time with my AR. My family and I do quite a bit of shooting and we all feel very strongly about our right to do so. With all the push for gun control in the world I thought, what could we use but one more brand that supports the right to bear arms....

With that said 2nd Strong was born.... I have my paperwork filed for all due purposes of my brand and I am working on my website now. I do need some support and need to start generating cash flow so I can reinvest in the brand. Below is my first design which I do have quality vinyl decals available if there is any interest here, PM me if so...

Being I have been on this forum for quite some time, I wanted to share with you guys first. Let me hear your thoughts...

"The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it."

Thank you Bogue and Chris! I definitely wanted to get this out to advocates such as myself before the election. It is imperative that ALL Americans know how important this November will be. Part of my mission is to support our military veterans as well as help to educate our population on how important the 2nd is... Your input is most valuable.

I do a lot of work helping my wife on the side providing the same stuff (Decals, shirts, stickers, design work, etc) for businesses, the amount of pro-2A stuff we do now compared to a year ago is insane. I will say, especially if you use Instagram as an outlet, the amount of Pro-2A hobby turned businesses is growing daily, you have some guys who hit it early who have literally built huge businesses from it in the past year or so, the guy who coined the 'Hillary For Prison' stuff, insane the amount of product he pushes.

With POD services being what they are now, selling online has become insanely easy, if you're planning on sticking it out with your brand, look into it especially as you start out. I say this as someone providing the same service, we just can't compete. Most of the guys who try to order a couple hundred stickers and 50-100 shirts lose it all, it's just not enough, they have nothing above and beyond to provide to the consumer than the next guy selling shirts and stickers.

If you need help with anything at all, feel free to shoot me a PM. We have scrap vinyl laying around all over, I'd be glad to send you 50 or so decals to help get you started.

There isn't a more die hard Republican in the world than me,,,,,,,,yet I fear the stupidity of the American public and am convinced that Hillary will win, due to the unemployed government bums, non-workers, welfare recipients and illegals that WILL be voting for her. Yes, illegals vote, belief it !!!
And I'm just going to say it,,,,is Trump really the best we could come up with, seriously? The guy is a baffoon.

If you have stickers made for sale, let us know how to purchase.

If there were requirements to be able to vote,,,,say,,,,
1. H.S. diploma
2. Job
3. Land or home owner

Don't become myopic and stick just with AR logos. We long gun guys with A-5 s and such are just as serious and we don't want to wear a AR shirt! We start at distances where AR's quit. Both are necessary in bad times.

I already have other logos designed at this time. I am working on others as well. I like the long gun idea, maybe with a bipod and awesome scope???
