Lightbulb Sticker idea?

As much as I tend to dislike decals of any sort on my cars (with the exception of factory ones and collegiate ones) I think it might be cool to have some made up that simply say www.peachparts.com and make them the type where you apply the decal then pull the top piece off, just leaving the letters. They could be made small and placed in a non-obtrusive location. What do you all think?

Having fun raising the dead, whunter? Must be a late night out there.

Seriously though, those vinyl decals are quite cool, and cheap to make. Talk to a local sign maker if you want one, it will probably cost very little.

I've got one from biodieselnow.com that says,

POWERED BY BIODIESEL
Clean * Renewable * Domestic

Its about 3" high and 24" wide, and is silver, like my car. Looks very classy on the rear window. Cost me 20$ for the decal and a license plate frame with the same text, including shipping.

I'd sport a little black mercedesshop.com decal if they were available.

peace,
sam

Staples, and presumably Office Depot/Office Max, carry clear vinyl sticker sheets that you can run through an inkjet printer at home.

Unless you want to volunteer to take on the task of designing the sticker, listening to bickering about the size/color/typeface from the fora, paying for it to be printed, dealing with all the orders, listening to all the bickering about "where's my sticker I sent you money", and so on

If I remeber correctly, last time when the stickers were made, a huge fight broke out, and people weren't greatful to the person who had them made, and eventhough he was doing this on the side of his super busy schedule and it took a while to get them all shipped out to people.

I was going to say - BTDT. I still haven't put the stickers on the SDL.

Were the site owners consulted the last time? You might want to run the idea and end result by them for approval. It is their site and URL after all.
