decals

well since the poll closed and its been decided that the decals will not be made....did anyone wanna take charge and make a couple to produce to the ones that want one. maybe we can start a list of people who want one, and at the end of the week someone can make them up for us and mail them out. i personally dont know anyone that can make them for me, otherwise i would volunteer to make them.

any interest in this?

There are some infringement issues you may want to clear up first.

i'll look into making them, but i'm only interested in the actual logo of our website..................i think i was the one that cause the most **************** and was pretty rude at the beginning that the logo created by site owners was awful.

so i would make them 986forum.com exactly the way it looks up at the top left of the screen. i would make them in, white, black, silver and whatever colour peeps want them in.

if it's cooo with our forum police, i can look into the cost.......

I have a guy who can make them pretty cheap, various colors or that "etched" look for the windstop. To keep the price down we should limit it to one or two colors, the good news though is that it would be per sheet so it doesn't matter if people want different styles (as long as there aren't too many).

I think before proceeding we should request Rich & Rich's approval as this is their site and I would think their copyright etc. I don't see this as a money making venture, whatever the cost is plus the cost of mailing. I'd actually be happier to have them mailed to someone else for distribution but suspect there will not be many volunteers!

So, we're back to square one to a degree, if the Rich's agree, what image is it to be? Does anyone know what exact font the "986forum" logo is in on the home page?

Chris.

I still like this. Maybe in a one color etched look? Could you do the 986 forum font under the car so the guys who didn't want the car could take it off?

We'd basicallyt need a single color image, you could then quite easily apply some parts but not others when it is applied.

I did the original logo up there in the left corner of the site window, way back when there were something like 100 members. That was a few computers ago... I will see if I can find the design file and let you know the font.

Found it...

Xerox Sans Serif Wide Bold Italic (aka oblique)

I don't believe this is a default Microsoft font... but appears to be available for free download.

Original logo "glow" image was created with the open source Photoshop alternative the Gimp using the "Alien Glow" script-fu plugin. Have fun.

I can make them, that's no problem, I just think it needs the blessing of the forum owners first.
