Which variation of the logo, guys?: Part IV

This yet another thing that needs its ends tied up and finished. The logo pretty much cant be die-cut. Its cost prohibited and Im not laying out that much cash. Nor am I going to wait for people to paypal me etc. We can get one color but then there goes the flag, you wont see it for the most part. We will loose detail/the machines cant cut that tight/small for such a small logo. ( and being its smaller as well, that adds more difficulty/cost as well as well ) The images are going to need to be vectorized as well, thus more money. I have a pretty good hookup as far as sticker maker goes, so she is going to work with me the best she can. And she has in the past.

The printed stickers are nice looking, so I say we go with that. It will be easier and cheaper in the long run. We just need a background to put it on. So I'll make a few mock ups and we can vote on it... ( keep in mind whatever we do, we will have a sample before committing on it ) The poll will run until the 15th of September. I know not everyone can get on here as much as they would like, so this should give ample time to the potential members so they can vote.

The first version will be the crab with the font and have a TIGHT white border around it. Just enough so we can have it printed but almost look die-cut. I did my best to get the point across. Omit the gray background in this one, as its just that, not there. Its going to be the crab with the white around it. Im thinking about 1/8" or so of a border.




Then there is this one with the logo on a gray background. I think this is pretty neutral and the background will get lost on the rear tinted windows for the most part. The final color can be determined and only discussed in this thread, thats if this style ends up being chosen.

I agree with terry here.

Just out of curiosity what the stickers cost?

How big would they need to be for die cut? What do they roughly cost?

Die cut would Have to be pretty decent size 12"? And the printed ones are around 1.00 give or take. They need to be vectorized, which costs money as well

This is definitely our best bet. Although, if you cut off all the white, the black on the crab might get lost in the black on your rear window.

Also, would it be difficult to get some grayscale prints made, for those that don't want the color version

Come on guys we need more input on this...

This is pretty much where were at right now. Unless someone can get us die cuts that are reasonable and around 6-7" or so, that would be great. But this is just an idea, not how the outline will look using the font and the white outline.. Think of this as a mock up just to get the point across.

Im thinking about getting these 5-6" wide?
