So can you please let me know if you are all ok with having Citroen on the right (which compliments the red and silver of the logo in a way) and Peugeot in the middle, with DS where it has been. This will also serve to distance DS from Citroen as a brand in keeping with PSA.

Can you please let us know if you are happy with this change - personally, I think it should flow with the main FCF banner as it is at present (although I realise that DS isn't currently incorporated into the design).

Within limits we could update the forum header to match the sticker design. What we currently have is a bit random, as it was designed by a member who is no longer active, but with the French flag the wrong way around. Unfortunately the high resolution original of the flag image is not currently available (although I think the creator of the header probably still has it). I flipped the whole image last year to correct the flag and then photoshopped the lion to be facing the correct way.

I have really gone off the Logos on either sticker, they make it to cluttered imho................... after looking at them a lot

Yes they work on a PC screen due to the luminosity of a screen, they do not work on a sticker behind glass I think, step away 2 or three paces and they are just a blob.

I understand what you are saying Sticky - but personally, I like the logos, as it is the marque of the car that I choose to support as well as the Forum. I mean there are beans and there are Heinz beans! :-D

Bloody excellent :D Can't put a fag paper between them... Love 'em both.

I think we should look to have both yours Marc and yours Alasdair made up. The members then have a choice...

I disagree. There should be one DEFINITIVE set of stickers. I prefer the logo'd ones and couldnt really care less whether or not they match the forum masthead. It doesnt matter one jot. They are not going to be viewed side by side for comparison at any time. We are procrastinating here. C'mon guys, i'm watching the Daily Poitics show on tv and they're arguing the toss over whether we should have a second referendum or not over the brexit debacle. This 'discussion' is similar in many ways. We just need to get on with it or forget it altogether! Have a poll as i suggested way back and go with the majority. Its an impractical idea to run with two different sets of stickers. It gives the impression that there are two separate forums to me. One forum, one set of stickers ... my vote.

I prefer the designs with the logos, nad would be prepared to ditch the DS logo for now if we want to reduce clutter.

Ok, so I'm about finished on my design - I just need a definitive answer as to the logo order on this - so I suggest the following:-

Jim - Can I suggest a quick survey, I can knock one up using Survey monkey in a few minutes, and we can have the final designs from Sticky and those below with a simple selection box listed, and put it to a simple vote. If possible, could we then email members with the survey link and give a deadline for closing of votes? it would only take a second and doesn't involve any paperwork? It would probably be the easiest way to coordinate and at least members will get a notification in case they want to take part.

I personally would suggest we try and make the forum header the template, and base the car stickers on it. I think that consistency across the board is best. However, I would go for A on both designs.

Excellent :D Yes please Marc... Good thinking and the time is right...

You may find the inbuilt forum poll-type thread will do the job too but if you prefer Survey Monkey then go for it ;)

Right ... we're on a roll ..... I vote 'logos', Marc's design B and design B, that is both types with chevvies and DS logo (if needs be) centred.

If I may, would it not be better to run these past the stickers printer to double check sizes, colours, costs etc.....maybe get them to mock up how they will finally look, and then vote ?

It's quite quick - many of the sites allow you to enter the dimensions, choose the finish and material, and quantity and bingo, you get a quote - I've already had some come in from submitted artwork in readiness - but I suggest we just get the design first. Alasdair - can you PM me a link to your final designs please, so I can prepare the survey?
