    Haloist's Entry: 3Reef Get the Word Out Contest

    3Reef Receipts

    Note: This thread will be updated as I get more pics in (until end of contest!)

    Idea: So, here's the story. I tend to go out a lot, and, one of the weird things I do when I'm out is that I always write a customized "Thank You" note and draw a picture on receipts for the waiters or waitresses. If there are no receipts, I would draw on a napkin. Doesn't hurt to make someone's day a little bit better right? Anyway, when I was doodling on a receipt at the local restaurant, I figured, hey, might as well incorporate 3reef into it to get the word out! :D

    (P.S. if you received my receipt and now checking out this thread, thanks for the awesome service and for stopping by!)


    I ALWAYS forget to bring my camera when I'm out and about, so the following pics were taken on my friend's camera!:


    Note: There were a lot more places I went to with 3Reef pics, but didn't have the chance to take pics! :( It's alright though, there will be more places I'll be visiting, so stay tuned for more pics! :)


    Here's a pic from a restaurant right on the water in Balboa Island (Newport Beach, CA) called Harborside Restaurant.

    Here's a pic of the restaurant with the receipt!

    As Suggested By BlueWaters10, I made an origami for the tip:

    Originally, BlueWaters10 suggested to make a dollar fish for the tip like the one shown on the bottom, but I didn't have any time, so we ended up making a star out of the chopstick sleeves. When I have some time, I'll definitely make a dollar fish for tips! Such an awesome idea! Thanks BlueWaters10!

    haha. That's awesome. I'd wear a shirt with that fish on it. :)

    I need to be more creative! No ideas for me yet...

    Hey Matt, I'd be more than happy to design the fish for the shirt! I can make a few designs when I'm free, post them on 3reef, and have people decide?

    :D
