Sticker redesign

#1 Post by 1234dist » Thu Jul 14, 2016 12:58 pm

So went to my sign writer today with an idea for some new more elaborate club stickers.

You can vote one more than one item and this is not a pre-order just a basis of opinion if i had the right design in my head or not. :laughing2

Image

Top one is for sun visor or rear window and will come with an additional strip of black vinyl (or any colour) which will need to be cut to shape on the car prior to adding the sticker.

Second is an interior printed window sticker

Third is an exterior body panel sticker in cut vinyl.

Let me know what you think on the poll and after an initial order i'll be able to get these as and when.

Just chucking it out there, but wonder if a long thin rear window strip, Rover logo at each end, very much like an original dealer sticker, would be appreciated? I have in mind something like 400/450mm long by 50/60mm high.

My effort:

Problem with that height is you'll not really be able to see any of the text.

150mm would be a minimum width to still be able to see the text at roughly 10mm - 18mm being the average text heights.


side note, your version also negates our newer (or should i say older) as it only shows r8's

I was aware of all of those things. It was an example. And cleaning up more line drawings of a 25 and a 45 and possibly a 213 would have taken too long. Just an example...

also it would need to be printed which may mean it only looking right for 2-3yrs.

Just giving all the info :angel

Looks too busy with larger fonts and a few other car outlines on it...

The other issue is the curvature of the rear or front window for that matter it will look like it would be hard to print it big enough to see all the details and damn near impossible to keep straight. :sad

This is the reason my top one comes with the black (or any other colour) backing slip first so the white text really pops from the screen.

Keep the ideas coming though.


I might get a coupe of demo ones done and attach them to the cabby as demo's.

I'd like to see a Rover badge on one of the black ones. It'd look smart on black, but maybe you're thinking that costs would be lower for single colour?

Another variation would be the burgundy square with white Rover and line-drawn shield logo, which they were using in the 80s and 90s.

the issue with having the rover badge is due to the colour scheme it would have to be printed, which again effects the longevity.

If there was a version out there that was just single colour, it could be reproduced, but i've got all this design work free of charge so far so don't want to push my luck :laughing2
