I’m not sure about the manufacturing costs for these things but I can’t imagine it being that high. If my kit cost was $25-$35 (depending on what was included) I’d find that acceptable (the lower priced the better for us – we can do more with it). Like many on here I’d figure out a strategy as to include these in the price or make a bit of money off them. Right now I see no value at their current pricing.
I’m a bit unbiased on the plaque for the wall or the paperweight. I’m fine with either. I think people with dedicated theaters might prefer plaques more. If the room was made for a theater (and it doesn’t have to be an elaborate one) the client would appreciate the plaque for all to see. But the TV in a livingroom guy will prefer the paperweight – I almost guarantee it because the family living room would already have its decor with other pictures/paintings…might not suit a THX plaque on the wall – it would look out of place and absolutely not wife friendly. This would be the case with most of my clients. Having a paperweight to put on top of an electronics rack or on the table/stand beside the TV is workable for virtually all of these clients. Maybe an option to select one or the other??
I’ve been juggling the sticker idea for years but haven’t really done anything about it at all. I tried once at a local printer some time ago…got them to print me ISF logos on transparent stickers that I stuck on the front of the TV…turned out ok but not the way I imagined. There’s a better printer around me now that I’ve been meaning to take the THX logo to but just haven’t put the time aside for yet. I like the idea of the sticker on the back of the TV for recalibration date. That’s a must…
