Super Firm is taking a hiatus. The material is quite tough on the machinery and is not worth the machinery toll. We'll need to think of something new and fun for the 12VO discs. Hmmmm .... any ideas?

Holy shizzle! 300 pages!

Run a series of super pebbly discs that include ALL the colors you've ever run and won't run again, like black and yellow. Bonus points if you can make it look like a mosaic rather than just being random small chunks thrown together.

Sample of something way too hard to pull off right now but just a concept:

Way way too hard with the machines they use that would just squish and blend that altogether. A nice bright white that popped would be a good stamp or dye disk though.

I don't think you fully read what I was saying... bonus points for making it like a mosaic. Just having the pebbles of colors would have been enough for me. For a special batch of VO discs, this is plausible.

As for a bright white Vibram disc, those kind of exist. I sold one previously - it was white with the standard black speckles. Steve previously said somewhere else that pure white was the toughest color to make due to the factory itself.

Here's the closest thing I had:

I'm shocked there I don't see 400 calls for Fusion yet. Any chance of those being tested again?

Those would be cool for VO discs, but not sure how the Soft parts would hold up. In any case, I forgot about these!
