Yellow Dot Sale for Aero Ektar Owners

In order to raise some money we have a sale going on and we are offering a special price on Yellow Dots for Aero Ektar lenses at only $100 each.

These are genuine Yellow Dots, not reproductions, and can be applied to the rim of Aero Ektar lenses and other lenses if you choose.

Strict limit of one per customer please. These are scarce and we only have a few. If you live in Massachusetts, we have to charge sales tax of 6.3%.

I have a question: Should I apply the dot myself with some glue, or can the dot be attached some other way, in case I sell the lens later?

We might at some time offer a magnetic dot, but the cost will be significantly higher.

will there be a trade in value, if, in case, there is the magnet version, and I want that later?

Also how can you tell if the size is correct? I don't want my dot being cut off.

What is gained by introducing a yellow dot to a non dot lens -- perhaps duping a buyer into parting with more $$$. No one has definitively concluded what the dot is for. Ethic debate seems imminent.

This is why our replacement dots are stickers, and not machined in. One should be aware, perhaps, that some evil dot-doer could in fact inflate the value of his/her lens, unbeknownst to the unsuspecting buyer. This on top of the usual "clear glass" and "excellent condition" labels could even count as a felony.

But you ask what is to be gained? Status, of course, like a Gucci handbag.

I have found it is possible to manufacture my own dot at less than the cost you are charging, and I am thinking of offering them for sale on ebay. I guess what I am saying is that I respectfully suggest that your dot is too expensive. How many have you sold?

Has anyone tried to apply TWO dots? The reason I ask is because a double dotted aero ektar would seem a to be a very rare bird, and therefore desirable.

My dot fell off during an underwater shoot. Can I buy another one?

These are now sold out.

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own
blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
