Default GNAP's new business....

"Selectrode does not market its own brand so we do not compete with our customers. Our goal is to provide you with top quality electrodes along with the best branding options so that you can successfully and profitably market Top Products to your customers."

http://www.selectrode.com/index.php

So the GNAP can start marketing (with the van) his own line of welding electrodes, custom made for YOUR job.....

Now to pick out some unique colors..."Fruit stripe", and how about "Purple with white polka dots" both
come with a notation "For usage in the territorial areas of Vermont only"

WTF!! How in the hell did I miss this thread!!

I could have color coded rods for all occasions, with color coded rods and my people skills, I could be #1 in the welding rod business within a fortnight. First Vermont, then the US, then Canada, then the world. The first step in Marsupuial Holdings, LTD's quest for world domination. The GNAP will not be denied!!

Must have been the after effects of returning from a "Vermont Excursion"....

Anyhow, it's not too late, you need a logo, a cartoon character, and
then we can begin the "branding" process.

Jackets, "Tee" shirts, golf Tees, all will be available for your customers
to "Show their true colors" with you designer welding rods.

I wonder if we can add a fragrance to the rods as well ?

I'm thinking early 70's mall experience of "Spencers Gifts" scent.....

Me thinks having a welding rod with a published THC content will certainly
sell better.....

That might hinder ones ability to have the welds pass inspection.
