Your Name On Toast
buy toast how it works contact

Here's how it works

You give us some money and we write your name (or web address or just a word of your choice) on toast and put it on our web site. Your toast will act as a link to your web site.

Anything from $5 $10 $20 $30 $40 $60 $80 $100 $200 up is enough to get you listed in the Your Name On Toast gallery.

The more you pay for your toast, the higher your toast will appear in the listings. Simple as that!

Every Penny goes directly to Oxfam Ireland; the brilliant charity voted for by the site's users (2 years in a row!)

Why would I buy toast when I can make some myself?

We'd recommend you do both. We love toast.

Here's why it works:
Your Name On Toast is a silly idea.
Silly ideas get talked about a lot. (You can help with this- please digg us, tell your friends or post us on your blog).
Lots of people come to the site.
Lots of people see your name on toast (your actual name...on actual toast)

You get lots of traffic driven to your site.
That's the idea anyway. It seems to be working pretty well.

Why are you giving all of the profits away to a brilliant charity?

Well, we'd like to make some money; that'd be nice, but we'd prefer to make the world a wee bit better.

Why would I pay $500 for a listing when I could get one for $200?

People are interested in who's paid the most for a bit of toast. We are anyway.
Interestingness (kind of) equals clicks.
Also, it's for a brilliant charity.

What do you use to write on the toast?

Well, today we're using Sharpies, but this could change. We'll keep you updated.

What will you do when the front page has far too much toast on it?

No idea. We might use some clever "click here to reveal" ajaxy thing, or maybe just run on a second page. Who would know?
Regardless, the highest priced toast will always be on the front page and the rest of the toast won't be too far behind.

Can I have my name on lots of pieces of toast?

Yes. You can create a sequence of toast by buying lots of the same value at the same time. Each will cost you a minimum of $200, though.

Can I change my toast once it's up?

Nope, sorry. This would be a logistical nightmare.

Instead of words, could you copy my logo onto some toast?

We'll give it a go, but we can't promise it'll look good.

How many words can I have on my toast?

Not many! Turns out it's really hard to write on toast. No more than about 6-7 characters per line, and no more than 3 lines is a good guideline.

Can I send you my own picture of toast

Sorry, no.

Will the base price for toast always be $5

Nope. In fact it's $200 now (and rising...)

How long will it take before my toast is live?

We'll try our best to get everything up within 2-3 days. No promises, but we'll try our best.

What are my rights when I buy my name on toast?

We'll try our very best to maintain a high level of up-time on the site for at least 2 years. You're buying a link from our site, so although your toasty link will be part of Your Name On Toast, you won't own a piece of the site itself (or the toast, for that matter).

Anything else?

Oh yes, we reserve the right to refuse your order for any reason at all.

It's really very likely that we'll turn you down if there's anything pornographic, evil or otherwise objectionable and if anything like this appears on your site afterwards, we reserve the right to pull your ad. Sorry, but we're running a kid-friendly site here.

And we might decide to do special offers at some stage...we'll let you know.

Finally (for now) we might change our mind re: the Terms and Conditions at any time (we're like that) so please keep checking back.
