I like that one too. Once again I'll chime in on my sticker recommendations.

We should avoid "skinny" fonts.  The reasons are that they can be harder to read and probably wont be as durable.  A wider font is easy to read for someone walking buy or even when you are passing them in traffic.  A solid sticker like the one above would work nicely as well.  I would like to maybe see a variation of that with the stripes being the German flag colors (I know Black is one so finagle it).

Another thing to mention that if we do use multiple colors, we do risk higher costs and might compromise quality in order to make it affordable.

Just throwing thoughts out there.  I like these ideas so far.  Winston thanks for keeping this going and to everyone that has chipped in such great ideas.

Well, JR, your sticker place ended up being located in Delaware, so that was a scratch, since I want to avoid shipping charges.  I'll keep checking around to see what I can find.  If anyone else knows of a place to get stickers made, please let me know.

Thanks guys.  if we can pick them up or just find places that can easily reproduce them, that would be great.  If the shop in the springs can do the same job and it looks the same, we can just send them a JPG or PSD file and they can print it out for a local pickup.

Thanks Greg.  We found a great cheap place to get them printed here, so we'll see what's up with that.  

However, once we decide on a final design, I can always send you a JPG to take to your local place to print out for you, so you can pick some up locally too.

Not a fan of the new one Mark...sorry :roll: I think it should stay in the white range with minimal color...that way it will fit with the largest number of color schemes on different cars.  White or Silver is always a good bet when going for a window logo...otherwise it looks too much like a bumper sticker, and I know we don't want that.

Also, some of the fonts ou found Winston are too jagged to be used. The machines that cut these stickers need smooth, flowing lines. they car do tight turns and small effects, but funky fonts are right out. There is a local place, to me that is here in Aurora, that I had my C-Bar stickers done at. I got 27 of them done for about $63 I believe. And that was with the guys time in helping me design the silly thing. Is that pricey, about $2.30 per unit, I'm not sure? But they had a fairly good selection of colors to choose from. I'm with several of the guys, stick to the solid colors to keep costs down. While the German flag idea is cool, it will increase the cost quite a bit and the effectivness of the window sticker will be lost with all the other colors. Personally, I like the silver colored stickers myself. They deffinantly stand out on dark tinted windows.  8)

Good point, Chas!  I think almost everyone likes this one the best



Mark is checking up with a sticker place close to him that should be able to do this for pretty cheap with all of the colors.  We wouldn't have the background, so the letters would be cut out and you could get whatever color lettering you wanted, for variety's sake.

Silver would be cool, and so would white and maybe even red.  We'll have to do some test window stickage...  :)

Actually, the black should be at the top, then red in the middle, then yellow at the bottom...otherwise it's not really the german flag...

White or Silver.  Actually I have enjoyed the creative effort that has gone into this and I like quite a few of the examples.  Still a pic of Winston's momma with the "RMCB5.com" logo around her is the best.  :lol:
