    Actually its something I have thought of in the past - though don't tell the techie team - i thin they may self-combust!

    There are some problems with it though

    i. If people start to have problems - we'll need to help out - that costs time and resources and i never really want to be an ISP - even a redirecting isp
    ii. People may then think im responsible for the email - or worse still could spam using the email address

    Overall i decided the problems didnt overcome the benefits.

    Maybe a wee banner signature people could put on the bottom of all their emails would be better?

    Almost like a car sticker?

    Yes Martin! In that case, if we could have a suitably designed logo/banner to put just under our signature, that would we wonderful!

    Oh can't wait to email my useless ISP with that one! zdevilut7.jpg:D

    I would prefer a business card with the MSE website address on that I can hand to people that I chat to in Tesco when I spot them buying something that I know is on offer elsewhere or similar, daughter rolls her eyes and walks away :o

    Same in restaurants and tourist attractions when I ask if they have a website address that I can put on the Scotland board to recommend tourists to visit them. I usually end up writing down the website address while trying to explain who Martin is whereas a card with a photo on and the address would do the trick nicely :)

    Edilass love your suggestion - but maybe a mite difficult ;)

    Im asking the design team if we can have the banner

    I was thinking something simple like

    I'm loudly and proudly a MoneySaver!

    Regarding the business card idea..........

    Would it not be possible for the team to come up with a design that you are happy with, then provide it as a template for us to download and print off ourselves?

    If it was saved as a word document, or similar. We could print off a whole page of cards to cut up ourselves, and spread the word.

    I've lost count of the amount of people that I've told about this site when I'm out and about. This type of idea would be so much easier than telling them the site address, and hoping they remember it. A few cards kept in my wallet would be easy to give out.

    OK I am doing a list of things we need. This is what i have so far

    1. Business card download
    2. New Car Stickers (already ordered and being printed, probably 4 weeks away)
    3. Logo for signature of emails
    4. Banners to go on peoples sites if they choose
    5. Feed to go on peoples sites with the latest articles in (we're working on this one)

    anything else Im missing?

    How about one of those window stickers along the lines of those tradesmen ones :rotfl:

    Tradesmen, please don't bother knocking on my door.

    I am a member of https://www.moneysavingexpert.com and it is guaranteed I can find the product you are offering cheaper elsewhere!! Maybe you should try it too!!

    I live in my own little world, but it's ok as everyone knows me here :)
