..this is why it's impossible to design something for a committee... ;D

Some want a cicle... some don't.... so here's both!

There is nothing you can do about the past and you can't predict the future...all you have is the now...live it to the fullest.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

wes the url is www.wilddog.za.net - try a font as close to the original - maybe the writing in the paw a touch smaller?

H

well, you DID say these were just suggestions, so if you decide to use this design, i'll track down the font and make it perfect  ::)

Me really like this one.... especially the oversized clear sticker that would protect the actual label.

Thanks, Goose, but like I said - that was a clumsy attempt to protect the photo underneath

:D ;D

Would it be considered inappropriate by you guys (the owners of the logo/brand) if I get the design from LGF (after I promise to buy him beer) and print my own stickers to put on my bike ?

You mean ripping off a brand as a symbol of your individuality and token of your freedom (wild at heart quote) - ?  >:D ;D

Ps I have to check with the board of directors  ;D ;)

Thanks, Kilroy !

Btw - I looked at one of LGF's designs and had an idea.

The problem that I have with putting a sticker on the front of my windscreen is that (to me) it looks stupid (have a round white sticker slap bam in the middle of a tinted screen).

So here's what I would do.

(Quick jobbie in Irfanview, so don't expect too much).

Seeing that I have a dark tint screen - take one of LGF's designs, invert it, print it on see through sticker and stick it on the front screen...

Any of the design could be printed on clear vinyl. Also, they could be done in cut vinyl and be put on with a backing sheet so that just the lettering and logo appear on the bike. There's a difference between printing the sticker and having the individual elements done in cut vinyl.

Hope this adds to the confusion ;D

Quick little GIMP jobbie...

Had to find out a couple of things before I got this going, so you photoshop gurus out there, please be gentle:

It might also be a little too big still ...

Van 'n afstand af lyk dit asof jy een moerse groot brommer geskraap het.  'n Kleiner een sal definitief bakgat wees.

So lief is ek darem ook nie vir die forum nie!

Ek is met jou daar.

Ek het net nie 'n naby foto gehad nie en as ek dit kleiner maak lyk dit net soos 'n vaal blob.

Ek het gedink as dit so groot soos 'n gewone lisensie disk is mag dit dalk goed lyk.

Bietjie oorboord gegaan en wou wys - toe werk dit nie so lekker nie.

Maar jy's reg - dit is soos dit daar gewys is bietjie te veel...

:D

Uiltjie, soos wat ek nou voel sal ek selfs met daardie groen gevaar (die 200cc) baie happily op jou plaas rondry !

Ok - laaste probeerslae...
