Maybe you made the triameses solely for getting rid of your 5x5x5s but it is still a new puzzle.
Can you upload some images for me?

You are always welcome to use the ones on the auctions or my website (when I get round to updating it).

Tony, I am thinking of getting a siamese 4x4 from you, however one question that I do have..

does the autograph have protection, or do I need to get that still? It would be a shame if it were to rub off after all :)

Over the time it improved:
Tony's autographs have always been protected, so they never got rubbed off.
He tried several methods, inbetween also several markers. The ink of some of them had the effect to interact with the glue of the protection layer and it dissolved and became unreadable. Of course, Tony was and is always caring about such issues and sent me replacement stickers with his autograph. Nevertheless it is an issue with older puzzles. As far as I know, the newer ones are just signed with a pencil, which does not show this kind of problem. My proposal was to use a writer with indian ink (looks nicer) and try, if a signature keeps the structure over a longer time in the sun. This topic is actual for many custom puzzle builders, but only a few have a satisfying solution for a hand-written, individual signature.
On Thursday I can take a picture of Tony's signatures on the puzzles I bought from him. All are covered and the actual ones still keep their shape.

Hope this helps:)

Frank

Yes it is protected. The way I do it now is usually with a biro and leaving it a few days before covering it. Previously I used a marker and covered it immediately. To be honest I am not convinced that any solution will work forever. As Frank says though I take these things seriously so if it does fade or go fuzzy in 5 years time or whatever I will send a replacement.

Thanks Tony :) I doubt it will get much outside play time, so I am not worried about the sun, more about the fingers that can rub. Good to read that it is protected with what I assume is a clear sticker :)

Thanks for your order, I will post it today. Yes I use the equivalent of a clear sticker.

These 3 auctions end today though the Pucks, Fisher Cubes, Micro 3x3x3s and Siamese 4x4x4 will continue as BINs.
