Don't get too enamoured of it, Andrew.

A former b/f of mine love to spoonerise, and was always practising some smart-alec thing to say.

Then, one day as he was driving his smokey old Beetle around Adelaide, he was pulled over by a copper.

Too eager to please, and putting mouth into gear before engaging brain, Marcus leapt out of the car and greeted the copper with:

"Good afternoonstable c... ".

VERY large fine - and VW grounded as terminally unroadworthy!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

I've been granted what appears to be a 'provisional' approval to print some stickers.

There's shyte all $$$ outlay so it's not really a major issue.  Obviously i'm not gonna be profiteering off these so i'd assume there's no issue there.

Like I said, if we can nut out 2 designs - i'll get the print done and we can see how they come out.

I wouldn't get too excited about this sticker..

ADMIN obviously doesn't approve (deafening silence from that end)  ::)

 ::)

Posting a topic with a question for Admin is NOT the way to get Admin's attention. No one should assume Admin is reading any topic, let alone every topic. ::)

Admin has responded in the positive to a PM on this subject. Admin likes the work done to date and will be interested in obtaining some stickers too. Admin wants to see what ideas others can come up with.

Ok... back to the top.

I have actually organised to speak to the printer in the coming weeks, as I'll be having quite a few stickers printed up in vinyl so that I can plaster my car for it's 1st event.


Y'all decide on a definitive / final design and i'll get them made.

I'm perfectly happy for others to make up the file for the sticker printer; if I remember correctly, the layout was originally Cam / SELfor50's - I just changed the fonts for something plainer and easier to read at a distance and in smaller sizes.

However, whether Cam, or I, or someone else produces the print file for the printer, that person will need to know the following details, some of which depend entirely upon the printer's own technical requirements.

Some of the following specs will probably make sense only to a printer.

* Desired final size in mm (i.e. trimmed, ready for placing on car).

* Bleed marks required? (Additional to crop marks which obviously will be required.)  If bleed marks, how much bleed required?

* Crop marks: traditional corner-only crosshair marks or full perimeter border.

* Required file type, e.g. tif, jpg, png, pdf ... etc.

* File resolution in dpi (dots per inch); 300 is common and perhaps adequate to our purpose, but any resolution from 150 dpi(likely absolute minimum) to 2400 dpi is possible (beyond 2400 the file size gets ridiculous and therefore harder to transmit).

* Colour of text (defined - if other than white - preferably in Pantone or similar colour-model style).

* Background (as I understand, it is to be clear, but I could be wrong or that could change): if coloured - other than clear or black - defined as Pantone etc. - and how does the printer need it presented in the print file: white, black, clear ... ?

* Text colour: does the printer require it in its desired finished colour, or as black (or other)?

NOTE: Mustn't forget to convert all text to vectors / outlines before finalising the file for delivery to the printer, otherwise the fonts could go awol (if, e.g. the printer doesn't have them resident on his machinery) and not turn out how required.

I think that should cover it for a trouble-free run.

Thanks for that Gordon.

I got no idea about any of the above.  I'll be talking to the printer later this week and finding out exactly what's required....but i'd assume the requirements are same as above.

Mavric's already mailed me the sizes he wants for the front windscreen of Team 116 - Car 2.

Everyone else drop your suggestions etc here, and I don't mind who makes the file for the printer, I don't have the skills - so nominations open!

Word peoples...  ;D  ;)

If anyone wants a print done, let me know.  I'll be looking at getting smaller ones done in the coming weeks.


Mate, if you want that one - make me an offer and it's yours.  It came with the car, and is still in great nic.  Don't know where to get them new.
