    I'm sure many of you were one of the 100k people who stood in line to be a little higher in the cue for the Model 3. I received the "thank you gift" a while back and have been trying to figure out what to do with it. It came in a glossy folder reminiscent of a professional conference. Insider were two pieces the print of the Model 3 art work and the thank you note on what seems to be the same nice matte paper.


    I measured and the artwork is a standard 8x10 and the note is standard 5x7. Framing them separately would of been dirt cheap and given a lot of options but even next to each other I didn't feel it would make sense or give the other context. So I started looking for some way to frame them together. The issue is finding a pre-made frame with room for a 5x7 and 8x10 both in landscape isn't a normal thing. However Michael's Arts and Crafts came through. When I first found it online it was 40$ and shipping put the total cost over 50 bucks. No thanks. The thing about Michael's is, there is always a promo. If you pay full price for anything there you're a sucker or have more money than time. I was finally by a retail location and picked this up for about 25 dollars after tax with an online coupon. Just google it.

    Michael's Frame Link

    Once you use a little paper tape to position it on the matte here's the result.


    I really like the black borders that the matte adds. If you're wondering about the red bottom section I stuck the red folder it came in behind everything as a place holder and a way to keep it all together. My actual Model 3 will take that spot in due time? What do you think; with or without me posed in front of it? Is that to cliche? In front of the factory? Should I let my girlfriend into the picture?

    It's nothing fancy but for what I spent the matte was worth it alone and one day the frame may get an upgrade. As I said on twitter It's now the most expensive piece of art I own since I've spent 1000 dollars and only have this to show for it.

      Thanks. I've been looking all over for a double frame and figured Michael's would have them. I just dread their prices. Make sure you use a coupon to bring the prices back down to Earth :)

          Yup. google it on your phone and it will bring up a barcode you scan right at the register. I managed to get 40% off and the online price is pretty good if you ship to store.

          Nice! Matte looks custom where'd you get it?

          I placed my M3 order online at 7:43 PDT - just before the Reveal was announced 3/31/16. During the announcement, Elon said "115,000 deposits" and I presume mine was in that block. I just got my Thank You in the mail Aug 5. If I read the above comments right, there were 100,000 gifts, so I now have confirmation of my approximate place in line. Unless of course Elon ordered a gift for 400,000 with Thank You cards, and another 1,000,000 for a couple of years of new owners Thank yous.

          I just received mine today.

          But I was 10th in line at my local store before the reveal, so I'm hoping this isn't indicative of where we are in line. ;)

            Thanks for the frame tip. I picked up the one at Michael's today and I'll be framing mine too.

            Awesome framing ideas guys. I foresee this going in a finished off garage on the wall by the charger with some other Tesla memorabilia all around it. This is a great addition to any Tesla enthusiast (i.e. all of us...) man cave! :)

            We need a customize your Model 3 garage section to get some great ideas together. I think of this like bringing home a newborn baby. Gotta get the nursery ready!!! Lol although I don't know many people who would do that a year and a half before their baby arrives, but maybe we'll just be trend setters...

              Hi Trev. Care to share the sku# of the frame you purchased ? Also, how did you do the red matte background with the TESLA name on it ? Thanks,
              Rick M

              Sure, the Michael's frame SKU is 400100722152. I wasn't able to find it online, I had to go to the store.

              I piked it up for $21 after applying a coupon.

              has anyone used the TESLA gery-on-white logo from the folder in a framed collage?

              Thanks, Trev. The second part of my request: How did you do the red matte with the Tesla logo on it. It was a great job !
              Thanks, Rick

              Hoping this will change but when I took delivery of my Model S I got 3 pieces of swag:

              1) A nice "Tesla owners only" snapback (base ball cap)
              2) 2 Tesla logo keychains that can't attach to the Tesla FOB :eek:

              Pics:

              FWIW SolarCity has been much more generous with gifts. I've got sweatshirts, mugs, water bottles etc from them.

              The red background is from the folder, I just cut out enough of it to fit. The Tesla logo was vinyl cut on my wife's Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter. I use that thing for sorts of stuff :)

                I'm pretty sure everyone gets a thank you note from tesla. I reserved on 4/3/16 online. And received my "note" on aug 3rd.
