Dear MF8:

Thanks for all the fantastic puzzles, but can you please find something else to use for your 12-sided puzzles besides that awful, awful light yellow color? Brown would be lovely.

Love and kisses,

Jared

P.S. Hope the Eitan's Star has 20 colors!

I almost thought you were talking about the plastic, but now I realize you're probably talking about stickers.

I'm not sure which he's talking about. Personally, I care about the functionality of the puzzle, not the color of the plastic or the color of the stickers.

My open letter to MF8: keep doing what you are doing.

I still have it on mine. No brown. Maybe it will change later.
The problem as I see it is that locally there aren't that many colors in good vinyl available. And have you seen the size of the rolls that need to be bought? They are huge! I know Mf8 is a company, but I can't stop thinking of him as a man, and that's a whole lot of vinyl for one guy.

They match, so... yeah.

Also thanks for the info Rox - I had assumed that vinyl sticker material was easy to find since replacement stickers are readily available. (Is this why the DaYan Gems don't come with 14 colors?)

And I know I could just replace the stickers or buy unstickered puzzles, but it's really hard for me to apply them because my hands shake too much. :(
