I have gone back and forth with Jason Sapan a few times. He is rigid on

"The hologram goes for $300, and he also has an acrylic frame to hold/=
display it for an additional $150."

Jason only gives a price break at 20 units, and then only 10%. We are
short= of that order, even counting those who said "yes, as long as it
is un= der $200." So, It seems that ordering en masse accomplishes
nothing. I= n fact, it complicates matters, since there would be extra
shipping involve= d (to me and out again), and since I cannot accept
PO's or credit cards= , whereas he can.

I am sorry to have stirred up a hornet's nest, but it doesn't look =
like there is any point in making this a group order.
