    Hey TW,
    I've been making and selling 550 Paracord bracelets for friends and family for a couple years and I figure I'd make a post and let you know I can make them for you all as well!

    Here are a couple examples and a pic of the colors I've got now.

    Top to Bottom: Desert Sand, ODG, ODG/Tan

    Tan/ODG

    Red, Blue, Desert Sand, Tan, ODG, Black
    [​IMG]
    Orange, White, Purple, & Yellow
    [​IMG]

    My brother-in-law is a Firefighter and I make black & red ones for him and his station. They've also had me make some blue & black for police friends they know.

    I can buy more colors at some point, but I've gotta have 2 or more bracelets or items with that color before I go buy it.

    Bracelets - $15
    Dog Collars - $20-25 depending on size
    Lanyards & Zipper Pulls 6" or less - $10
    All prices include shipping.
    Clasp can be a knot, wood bead, or a black plastic pinch buckle, you call it.

    PM with colors & wrist size, collar length or lanyard/zipper pull length.

    Paypal Only Please

    I'll post more examples as I make them...

    UPDATE: Made this last week 11/7
    Double Cobra w/an extra red strand

    It's all a matter of finding the tag - I can attach it no problem.

    http://imprint.com/keychains/

    You can make a tag here for about $8 plus shipping it looks like. I'd have to drill the hole on the other side of the tag though.

    Glad to see the thread up and running. Just curious, do you think a necklace would be possible, or would it just not be cost efficient? I bet a red/white necklace would just look badass. Is it obvious I dig baseball? Lol :cool:


    My desired colors if you're starting a list:
    Bright Orange
    Navy Blue
    White
    Dark Purple
    Bright Yellow and/or Gold

    (I'd be ordering 3 bracelets and/or lanyards from that list, also a necklace if that was a possibility.)

    Let me know once you get enough requests to get those in. I'm definitely in no rush, except once the purple and gold one was made, I'm sure I can get you lots of business from LSU fans around here. especially if it was around football season.

    As I said before, hope you've got some spare time!!! :D

    Do you have any examples of the FF ones? Might buy some for my station.

    Also do you make monkey fists? (just wondering I have tried these and just cant quite get them)

    I do some paracord here and there, but always looking to help out a fellow TW member.

    I did a quick search and found this one. I'd be willing to bet it's close to this one (with a plastic clasp or button instead though.)

    Sweet!!! Sounds like I'm gunna have some busy evenings and sore fingers :D I can get the purple, yellow and white locally no problem. I'd have to order the orange online.

    As far as the necklace goes, it's no problem. It'd be the same price as a dog collar, but I'd recommend just using a knot or bead instead of the buckle. Just give me a length. They end up about 5/8" wide and pretty stiff so I personally would never wear one as a necklace, but it's your dime!;)

    The FF ones would be exactly like the Tan/ODG above except black & red. The only reason I don't make the ones like Bullzi posted is you can reverse the colors by just flipping the bracelet i.e. black edge, red center and vice versa.

    As far as the monkey fist, I can make them really good without a ball core. I've got a busy night but I'll try and get a pic up later tonight. Somehow I always come up wrong somewhere when I try and wrap a ball or marble.:(

    EDIT: I could also do white/red or white/blue for EMT/EMS

    Ok, my nice chain is like an 18, but let me measure an old american eagle one I have. I'd ballpark around 16. And yeah, I was figuring a bead instead of the buckle. Besides, if I don't like it, I can always give it to one of my pups :) Is there a way to make it more rounded and less like a dog collar though? I've seen some in sporting stores in the same price range. Not sure the material though.

    Soon as you get the purple and yellow in and one made, let me know and I'll start spreading the word locally. Same if you make any yellow/back ones. I have a ton of friends who are very active with Livestrong. Sure they'd be interested as well. Always willing to help out a fellow TW member. ​
