------==== W116.Org STICKERS ====-------
« on: 12 November 2007, 02:45 AM »
Sorry had to use the banner style...

Admin, anyone - what are the chances of exploring the possibilities of "W116.Org" Stickers?!

I know it would get even more people here.  Lately around canberra i've been seeing a few more 116's than average.  They've been coming out of the woodwork.

I know if I had a w116.org sticker plastered across the back of my windscreen (not too big of course) other 116 drivers would go.. hey, that's the model I have, i'm gonna check out that site.

Most enthusiasts only stumble across this site when they are looking for assistance with mechanical issues etc.  Would be good to get people coming here just for the fact they own such a bloody great vehicle!  That make sense?

Anyway, I sorta asked this before to do with the Team W116 thing, but I reckon if we at least got something general made up then everyone (well everyone who doesn't mind sticking something on their windscreen) could plaster one up.

Thoughts, suggestions, criticism?? ???

I know of some friends' Toyotas, Hyundais and Holdens I'd like to put them on.  Can we make them offensive  ;D

I wouldn't mind a sticker or two.  A transparent badge type sticker or something new.  Gotta have a teamw116 one too.

I think thats a great idea. I think it would be cool if we did something like a contest to come up with a cool design. Since Patrick has such a sweet machine at his disposal, we should really look into it.

Actually, I was only having a bit of fun with you, and your idea is not that bad, however I think that you need to have the graphic of the car on it. There are two types of W116 drivers IMO. The ones like us that are enthusiasts/collectors, and then there is the others that drive them, but have no idea it is a W116.

1.  Make them magnetic or the thin film that can be installed and peeled without glue to glass.

2.  Incorporate this car:



Circle the logo?  "International Mercedes W116 S-Class" (top half)
                       "Enthusiasts Group"

Dope suggestions y'all!!

Keep em comin'!!!

Michel's right on the money - it needs to be something that can be read at a 'fair' distance by people, but also incorporate the car silhouette as like craig said - some people just drive a mercedes, that's all they know.

Neat design Oscar. I particulary like the spiral in the headlight. The seventies were, after all, the decade when real acid users got down & dirty.

I reckon that any sticker has to be good to look at as well as convey the information clearly. That's what interesting design is all about. Simple words, although they are appealing for simplicity, lack the class associated with these cars. They deserve the best we can muster.

PB - are you able to print a 3D style sticker with chrome finish & font that resembles the left side boot badge?

I reckon that could be cool  ;D

No comment/approval from Admin as yet. Perhaps we are getting ahead of ourselves.
