Maybe we should bug the mods there and see where they get theirs made.

Anyone with a low speed laser printer like an HP 4ppm can make their own out of lettering vinyl - certain vinyls take toner very well and a coat of Clear Krylon fuses the toner to the vinyl and makes it all nice and shiny! It will also peal off cleanly after years stuck on your bumper. Been doing it for years. Guess you need to see the rear bumper of my Geo . . .

I was thinking of something like this too... something like:

The license plate frame is a cool idea, but putting a mpg number like 50 leaves us lower life forms out in the cold. Driving a truck keeps me way behind, even though my mileage is easily 20% than other trucks like mine and as much as 50% depending.

I was actually thinking of making a series of these each with different MPG figures. I was debating license plate frames (obviously more expensive) and bumper stickers.

The only problem with all of this is that I would have to order a massive amount for any order. Some stickers I found online would be a minimum order of 2000 stickers.

Which leads me to another question.

What type of sticker is preferred? Rectangular? oval? Clear background? White background? Black backgrond? What about the color of the text? I'm looking at one place that can give all of these options, but I'm unsure if they can do more than one option at a time for one order.

I'm not opposed to spending some money in hopes that the stickers will sell. It would obviously take some time, however, but I think it's doable.

Just looked into license plate frames... it's very doable. Minimum order is 125, so including a MPG figure might not be a good idea. Any design suggestions?

Black I'd say for the first

Black I'd say for the first run. Or do the tri-color thing like h-t has.

I'd say clear background. Maybe white lettering...we want something that shows! I'll talk to my friend who used to run the car club I was in. There is a vinyl sticker shop nearby where we used to get our stickers done, and they weren't that bad. I think I paid like $16 for one that was about 30" long with 3 or 4" letter height.

Sticker real estate on the rear of my car is getting slim as it is...I may have to remove some to make room for the Gassavers one!

layout

Anyone have the artwork in Coreldraw or DWG file format or maybe a big bitmap that I can use to print them with? Usually I pick a color vinyl for the lettering and reverse print the black with the laser then it matches the black bumper of my Geo. The New xB is all white however so . . . have to do it in black letters on white vinyl.

Sorry for the delay, but

Sorry for the delay, but Matt, I found the place near me that does vinyl stickers for the cheap. I'm going to try to talk to them next week. The place is called Wolf Printing.

Is there any particular font you want me to check out? I was thinking of using a letter height of about .75" or maybe 1". Are we just going to do "Gassavers.org," or any other words or logos [logos will definately increase the price], and do you want it capitalized any differently?

The GT Autoshow is going to be here before I know it and I want to represent the site with my car.
