Default Why don't DX logos cross over to Pro, Champ and Star?

Anyone have an idea why Innova doesn't put their little drawings on other types of plastic? The only exception I have is the 1st Run Cro and the occasional willy nilly rarity that comes out.

Don't get me wrong. It entices me more and more to get into dying.

I have always wondered this myself. It could just be tradition that they only have them on the DX. Chances are someone out here knows.

This might sound silly, but could it be because the DX is the lower grade of disc, and the Champ and Star are more serious discs. Most people who throw Champ and Star don't care about the stamp.

Perhaps the DX is made on a different injection molding machine?

Perhaps the artwork "press" (lack of better term) doesn't fit on all the molding machines?

Are all the different plastics used in the same injection mold? Or different physical equipment?

I do not know the answer to your question. I just have more questions.
Perhaps if we can get answers to those, it may help answer yours?

I have no idea, is my answer.

All I know is I still throw some DX (putter & roc) but the artwork is long gone.

Always wondered this myself...some of the artwork is cool and some is so corny.....I would love to see some of the arty stamps in star etc........I never knew what some of the DX stamps were until I stumbled upon some DX discs....Does anyone out there have a DX stamp tattoo I figured some dischead out there has a beast or perhaps a valk on their arm! Gotta be better than a tribal armband? I just hope no one has the Pegasus as a tramp stamp!

Yeah, maybe we can get some $$$ offers for all the disc dyers out there.
We're listening innova... discraft... latitude 64... anybody?.....
Multiple stamps for collectors....
Ithink they might be missing the boat on this one. If people collect glasses from burgerking, they'll collect anything.

I think it's a shame that they don't use the artwork in the case of, say, the Roc or the Leopard. But I'd never want to buy a Beast or an Orc with those cartoonish drawings on them. Your mileage may vary.

because DX discs are cheaper and therefore are more accessible to kids. Kids like pictures.

I might be wrong, but that's just the kind of marketing thought process a company might use.


that being said I really wish my star leopard and t-bird had a leaopard and a bird on them.
