Affiliate Ready

This is it! You are now the proud owner of the first of the yearly,
weekly, bi-annual, once in a while newsletters from The Masonic Shop. 

Uh... no, actually it's the second. But first of the year! I know 
it's next year because all of the checks I wrote out came back.

Ok, it's been like two months since the last newsletter. Wow. Time
really flies. It's true. You don't even have to be having fun.

Hey, for those of you who are really serious about our Craft, you may
want to check out this listserve.

Some really cool brothers (and some sisters) there in an off the wall
list that's sometimes really serious and sometimes really silly. Just a
great bunch of folks. In fact, you may even be aggravated by me on
occasion. (If you already get it, you can cut this paragraph out and not
read it.)

And for those new officers (congratulations!), you may want to check
this out. Some help for new officers. 


Ok, so what can I bore you with this time. Obviously since the last
newsletter we added tons of new stuff. (Nearly 5000 items so far)

Our affiliate program is still open for your fund rasing needs.

We still do custom designs for you or your Lodge for nuttin'.

The foreign brothers who use babelfish to translate this are still going
crazy trying to read the incredibly bad english here. But, I can just
blame it on babelfish!

Hmmm... what else...

(I'm trying to think, but nothing happens) (thanx curly)

Oh, I made some new designs for Scottish Rite brothers. Not to 
mentions Knights Templar. Oops. Too late. I already mentioned it. To be
honest there's so much up now that I really forget what's there myself.
There are some new regional mugs & steins. (If you want one for your
area, just let us know)

OH! I almost forgot!!!


I forgot. 


I'm not really too keen on this old thing. I remember when I was 
younger, I remembered. It gets pretty bad when you remember something
and then don't remember what it was you remembered. It's not really as
bad as it seems though. I still remember I forgot something.

Wait. My wife just handed me a note I forgot I had. It says... I am an
idio... ahem. I don't think that's it. 

GOT IT! Cut-ups. Since we don't have anything like small perforated
stickers we made a few that you can cut apart with scissors and paste
anywhere. They aren't paper, they're vinyl so they'll hold up pretty
well almost anywhere. If you don't want to buy the Masonic stamps and
would like to add a cool sticker to your letters, this if for you. No...
I said letters, not email. They'll stick to almost anything, but there
is a limit. I'm sure you can come up with tons of uses besides email.
Maybe a teeny bumper sticker or for the corner of your windshield. (And
hope the officer giving you a ticket is a brother)

PHA, HoJ, DoN ?
Right here.

On another note, it seems a lot of folks have been having a tough 
time browsing through the site. Just too many things to see. So, we
broke up a lot of it and gave some items their own sections. For
instance, under the fund raisingers, we put the Masonic magnets in their
own section. We're trying to add some semblance of order to the mess,
but it's not easy. Mugs & Steins have a separate regional section. 

We left the Shrine magnets & buttons under the Shrine section since we
don't have too much in the way of Shrine merchandise yet. But as we
build it up I don't know if we'll move them or not. If you have any
ideas about making it easier to find what you're looking for I'd love to
hear it. In the mean time, it may be easier to surf via our sitemap.


Don't forget to check out our wallpaper page. We still add to it once in
a while. (and we do take requests)

In the meantime... Keep it square!
