If there needs to be recognition of 'DS' then K4 is for me. It's plain and simple and encapsulates the web address without any 'corrupting' spaces. I've not seen any rear view stickers that i would choise so will pass on that. Unless of course a similar matching set could be produced.

Where is the postings box please? I decided to check if I'm in UK or USA mode but I'm lost.

It is just the text box that you type inot to make a post on the forum.

I just checked a page header, and it starts:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en-gb">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />

My preference too. I like the balance between all the parts, and the web address without any distracting capitals or spaces.

He is a pro at this kind of thing as many will now the reproduction XM stickers he's done in the past...

All can be heavily tweaked to meet our desires..

On the ones Russ supplied, do we what the text to change to what we like on the other ones or are we happy with how it is?

I'll be dealing with Russ and going for some quotes to have them made up as soon as we have the designs finalised. I want to see us choose one circular tax-disc sized one (K4 looks like the one) and one rectangular one...

I will also be the distributor of these stickers...

Grateful for a decision soon so that I can crack on...

To be honest - and I'm usually a fan of Russ's work - I don't like any of those rectangular designs at all. Confused and fussy, and difficult to read.

I would have thought that, if we are going to adopt the K circular sticker, then a rear window rectangular version should bear a close family resemblance to it, and be echoed by our website masthead. One "corporate identity" is the way to go, I would think.

I also agree with all of that.

Just one more question, do we want the stickers to be 'self cling' or 'adhesive'?

Once we have a decision on designs, which I feel is fairly close now, I will go and get quotes...

Mine rests with Alasdair's Left-hand rectangular one and Marc's K4. I think we need to see them side-by-side now to save having to scroll back many posts to see them..

Also, the forum URL on the stickers should always end in .co.uk
