The Nicknames are back. Years ago, we sold official Bend Press nicknames and it was a rather successful campaign, dolling out more that 50 original names for the Friends of Bend (FOBs).

We’re doing it again. For $5 Bend will assign you a nickname ­— it will be yours and yours alone. You may use it in any way you see fit and you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity (suitable for framing) along with your purchase. See the example.

You may choose a completely original Bend Nickname — OR, choose from the Bend Nickname options in the pull-down menu.

Thank you.
