Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

my understanding is that there is no colorizer ... from

"The first choice will be colors.  Donít go crazy on colors, in most cases 3 is plenty.  Just because a kite has 18 panels, 9 colors are not needed.
Once you've told me your color preferences, Iíll do some drawings of different layouts based on them.
Please donít be offended if I suggest alternatives."

Back when I was a Blue Moon dealer my recommendation was to give Ken a couple colors to work with and let him offer you design suggestions ... I don't recall anyone being disappointed in the results ... and quite sure several disasters were avoided.

Chris and I owned MANY of Ken's kites over the years and we always let Ken do his thing as far as color placement went. Never disappointed.
