I hate the waxy feel of most runs of DX that I have handled. 3 acetone scrubs, interspaced with light sanding, gets rid of most of the waxy feel. It does come back in a few weeks, but a light sanding cleans it back off.

Those stars in the background give it the "outer space" feel. No worries, it's still a good looking stamp.

Y'all do me a favor and not buy all these out when they hit the store, okay? I have a $5 off DGU card and they don't carry anything else I particularly want.

These won’t be through DGU The DGU guy I work with refuses to do a custom stamp on Polecats because they won’t sell enough to make it worthwhile! And this problem is multiplied because I want the huge XXL stamp and two foil colors.

So I’m running this as my first self-produced project and I’ll be selling them on my own. I fully realize I won’t make any money after the dies and discs are ordered and will be LUCKY to not LOSE money. My time designing and executing the stamp will be uncompensated. In short, I’m doing this stamp for free because I love Polecats and want to see them get some custom stamp love

The first order will likely be the minimum 50 disc order unless I have significant evidence that we need more. If/when premium disc blanks arrive, I’ll make sure some of those get stamped as a second run.

We will just have to sell them out and prove them wrong.

I am much more likely to support you directly than through DGU

I mean two days later and I'm still unable to process this. I've been trolling around on disc golf websites for a long, long time and this is officially the most insane thing I've ever read.

Frolf on you crazy diamond.
