Default Surprise gift from Greg at Van?s Aircraft

Came home to an unexpected box at my house. Opened it up and found these 2 nice glasses with the new Van’s Aircraft Logo. Got in touch with Greg and he said it was a thank you gift for the Ice Cream Social. Not sure if these are for sale, but if they are not…… They should be.

BTW, if you turn the new logo upside down. it is the same logo.

Hah - happy birthday present for ya, Axel.

Super limited edition, custom made glassware that I slaved over a hot new laser machine to make in the prototype shop.

They’re not for sale - at least not yet? Would people want to buy them? I’m also prototyping some Van’s-branded steel water bottles as a “maybe” idea. Ones that would work well in an airplane.

OK, again, I can't see the photos. I only see gray circles with a bar.

When this happens, it seems that some see the photos, while other do not.

I typically use the Chrome browser.

DR, any input? Does it have to do with using Google Photos as a host?

I sure wish we could solve the photo issue once and for all.

<Frustrated!>

Greg, I think this kind of merch would sell well! (Even though I can't see it lol)
