    Hi all

    We take great pleasure in announcing the launch of an initiative that has been several months in the making. The ECIGSSA Diamond Supporting Vendor program.

    In a nutshell, this program allows for vendors to differentiate themselves further on ECIGSSA. This will allow them to stand out a bit and to make more use of their presence on the forum. They will get their own category on the home page and several other differentiating benefits including banner advertising. Going forward, the Diamond Supporting Vendors will be contributing a lot more to the forum in return for these benefits.

    It is also a way for ECIGSSA to thank and reward those vendors that have gone the extra mile and have supported the forum with passion over the longer term. There are a set of objective criteria for becoming eligible for this. The main one is having been a paying local supporting vendor for a full year.

    Allow me to introduce the initial round of the first six Diamond Supporting Vendors in no particular order and to say a few words about each of them.

    Vape Club
    These guys are just totally special. Based in Benoni, @JakesSA and @VapeGrrl have grown the business from small beginnings to a powerhouse of vaping in a short time. Superb selection of local juices and great well-priced gear. Vape Club has been around since the early days of the ECIGSSA journey and has supported the forum in so many ways - attending and helping at vape meets, donating prizes and helping members all the time. They have made the whole journey so much better for many folk.

    Sir Vape
    What can one say - the masters of vaping in Durban. Also in a short space of time, @Sir Vape and @BigGuy have transformed the Durban vaping scene and many will agree are a national vaping brand. From humble beginnings to a full blown retail presence, Sir Vape has always been at the forefront of the latest gear and juices. With their awesome marketing and friendly service, it's no surprise they have gone from strength to strength. They have also been there for the community, helping out where they can and have donated prizes and even hosted a vape meet.

    Vapour Mountain
    Benji (@Oupa) and Chrystel are synonymous with vaping in many people's minds. Benji was one of the first juice makers here in SA and has an incredible loyal following of many forumites with his tasty dependable juices. Despite being based in CT, his following spreads across the nation. He brought the Reos to SA and is also a long-standing Eciggies agent. His XXX juice won the juice shootout competition at VapeCon 2015. Vapour Mountain has been a solid supporter of ECIGSSA through and through - and has done a lot for people on and off the forum.

    Juicy Joes
    A success story of note. Run by @ShaneW - originally based in East London and now in the mother city, Shane has transformed Juicy Joes into a local juice powerhouse. He tantalised us in the beginning with some epic international juices such as HHV and Nicoticket and now has a very wide selection of the finest local juices in the country. Juicy Joes has also always been there for the community and has supported vape meets, even travelling from afar and has always been willing to help out in various ways.

    Vape King
    Another big success story. Warren (aka @Gizmo) and Sharri (aka @Stroodlepuff) have steadily transformed Vape King from a tiny operation with a few starter kits into a powerhouse of vaping in Johannesburg. Today they have several outlets and agents, a very wide selection of stock and juices - and are now embarking on a retail expansion. Vape King have supported this forum from the beginning and have donated so much in the way of time, prizes and funding to make this all possible. Legendary to say the least.

    Vape Cartel
    This is another amazing story. From a shaky start with a dodgy batch of imported juices, @KieranD has proven that he has what it takes to fall down and get back up and soldier on. Tireless dedication (initially delivering many of his parcels himself), a keen eye for the latest products and juices and great customer service has seen Vape Cartel grow from strength to strength. The following has grown nationwide. So much so that they have launched their first retail shop in Cape Town this week. While doing all of this, Vape Cartel has always been a big pillar of support to ECIGSSA and has contributed much to the community and taken part in many events.

    I take my hat off and salute each and every one of you vendors. Thank you for the amazing support you have given over the past. Diamond Support indeed. You guys deserve all the success and I wish you all the best with your Diamond Supporting Vendor status.

    Vape on!

    excellent initiative, and congrats to the new Diamond vendors - I know when I started on this forum, and saw the number of vendors that actually use the site - it actually felt overwhelming, I didn't know who to use etc. Now this makes it easy...

    Hi all

    We are very pleased to announce that Northern Craft Vapes has entered the ECIGSSA Diamond Supporting Vendor program.

    NCV (run by @Vapington on this forum) has been focused on making great juices for quite some time. The business formally started over a year ago and in a relatively short space of time has achieved a lot. Their juices are available at several vendors on this forum. NCV won two categories in the recent 2016 ECIGSSA Juice Awards. Their single focus on juice that is liked by many is certainly a key part of their success. NCV has been a supporting vendor here for over a year, has helped out in several initiatives and has been part of previous events.

    We wish NCV all the best for the future.

    Hi all

    We are very pleased to announce that Wiener Vape Co. has entered the ECIGSSA Diamond Supporting Vendor program.

    Wiener Vape Co. is a long-standing, high quality local juice manufacturer that has done very well in a fairly short space of time. It was founded in October 2015 by @Rooigevaar (on the forum). They are based in Richards Bay. From the start, everything about them oozed passion - their juices, their website and their attitude. Wiener Vape Co. is based in Richards Bay but their juices are available at many vaping retailers nationwide. Several new juices have been launched over the past year. Wiener Vape Co. has been an ECIGSSA supporting vendor for 14 months and was an exhibitor at VapeCon 2016. They have been great active supporters of the forum and its various initiatives over this time.

    Thanks for the support Gerhard @Rooigevaar, we wish you everything of the best for the future.
