I don't mind sorting it if people supply decent pics off their busses.
I can chop them out and everything.
Would have to be good quality photos though... No point in printing shite.

I can organise this as i run a mail order business, we can send them out from here. If everyone who wants one sends me a pm then ill get a list of numbers and put an order in then i'll let everyone know the cost for postage and packing.
