RE:Name

Thank you so much to everyone for all of your bright and brilliant suggestions for the 250gram rename – if you’re still confused as to why we have to drop the ‘gram’ from our name read this blog post. We’ve narrowed the selection down to three names we love – Nifty250 as suggested by Byron S, we got quite a few entries for 250squared but only Carl J made us an illustration, including the brackets & squared sign which we loved – (250)², the last entry is The 250 Print Studio which was suggested by Nicky D.

In the interests of being democratic, okay we also couldn’t really decide this alone – we’ve decided to open up voting to see if we can find a clear winner. Please vote and leave comments to let us know what you think!

EDIT: the tribe has spoken – 250gram is now Nifty250 (Byron S’s suggestion)! Thanks for all your awesome entries, and please have patience with us as we transition through changing all our URLs, email addresses, social media handles, profile photos, boxes and stickers.

    HNNNNGHHH why can’t it be all three?? Excellent suggestions – each one could work so well.

    My quick thoughts:

    Nifty250:
    – Rolls off the tongue well
    – Probably the most catchy/memorable

    Squared:
    – Very clever, probably best in that regard
    – Could run into some problems with the squared part in terms of writing out the full name/brand association (like you already had to say “which will read as…”)

    Print Studio:
    – Bland but the most informative (key for new customers. who might not have heard of 250gram before)
    – Safest bet?

    Voted for Nifty250 because it is just so easy to say and the only one that works with your blog name – “F#ck yeah Nifty250!”
