GeminiRJ, if I could make a suggestion (other than adding me to the list of interested persons...) it might be easiest for you to have everyone who is interested in this item PM you their personal email address, (or if they are nervous, they can set up a yahoo account just for this purpose! Hehehe) and you could put them all in a distribution list in your email now. Then, when the cutters are ready, you can send out one email to that list which will state that they are ready, what the price is, how to order, etc. Otherwise, if you get 200 interested people, you will have to send 200 PM's here. Plus, as you mentioned, you don't want anyone to give you poo-poo about 'marketing' here on CC. This way, you are totally taking it off the board so you can feel comfortable!!
The cookies in your avatar are just precious... I would totally buy a kit for those!!
Awesome work! (But does it cost extra to get you to do the actual decorating? I don't think mine would look that good!)
