How to Add Studs To Clothing
StudsandSpikes.com offers a variety of spikes, studs, studded belts, bullet belts, punk patches, and wristbands. This Instructable will show you how to receive studs for only the cost of postage.
Step 1: "Free & Discount" Items Page
Step 2: Read the Details for Receiving Stickers
Step 3: Contacting the Store
After educating yourself on receiving the stickers in order to get the studs. Go to the Contact Us page to ask the store if they will send you some stickers.
An example of how you should fill out the fields is
Hi, I was wondering if you could send me some free stickers for the free English '77 studs deal.
They will most likely send you an e-mail back telling you to send them a self addressed stamped envelope and the sticker design you want. You can get a maximum of 5 free stickers, but you can choose a couple of each design or 5 of one.
Step 4: Sending a S.A.S.E.
Fill out an envelope with your address in the return address area (top left corner) and their's in the send to area (center). Fill out a second envelope with the addresses in the opposite areas, yours in the send to and theirs in the top left. Stamp both but do not seal both. The one with your address (do not seal) in the send to area will go on the inside of the other envelope, which you will seal. It may also be a good idea to send them something inside the envelope stating which stickers you want.
Step 5: Take Pictures of the Stickers
Stick your stickers on anything in a public place, like a stop sign, a car bumper, a library computer, sliding door of a store, cash register, post office drop box, etc. Be creative. Also, be sure to take a picture of your sticker so you can send them to studsandspikes.com in order for them to send you your studs.
*****this is technically vandalism, so do this at your own risk. I, nor Studsandspikes.com take any responsibility for your actions.
Step 6: Send the Pictures and Wait for Your Free Studs
Use a site like imageshack or flickr or something similar to upload the picture, or attach them to an email that you send to the nice people over at StudsAndSpikes.com. Once they get the pictures, they will give you your promo code for a free bag of studs and will explain that you can either pay postage for the studs or they will be included in any order that you make.
***Important- add the bag of studs that you are going to get for free (either english 77 standard cones or english 77 tall cones) to your shopping cart on the website. Proceed with the check-out process as if you were ordering anything else online and there will be a box to enter your promo code. All you will have to pay is shipping.
