Default any interest in stickers?

We could do another run of stickers, probably something different from the last. The new banner would be awesome but printing that many colors would be $$$.
Give me your input.

I have ZERO photoshop skillz... but... I'm in for 10 of whatever we come up with that doesn't suck. There should be a small variety. Keep it down to a couple bucks each, and proceeds go to buy Philip the most beat-down, rusted-out, high-mileage, piece of NA nastiness we can find to bring him back into the Miata fold.

Here's a pic of the leftovers in my sticker pile. My cel-phone is at the bottom for comparison. I like the idea along the lines of the 3 stickers under my phone.

#1 The apriliaforum.com is black vinyl die-cut letters. Make them white letters and they're perfect for a roll bar... maybe one even smaller for more discrete placement.
#2 There's gotta be a round one. The VAW113 is a 3" round. No need for the letter flag around the bottom. It can be perfectly circular.
#3 And hopefully a small, tasteful deck-of-cards sized sticker like the K&N with one of Braineaks bitchin' forum header designs... only cut down a little.

I would not buy a full sized "bumper" sticker. Absolutely nothing mirrored or red-neck sparkly. These are my particular tastes listed above... but like I said, as long as it doesn't suck, I'm in for whatever I can get for $20.

123stickers.com can do full color die-cut on the cheap. The logo I made on the top would look sweet as a sticker, something that can fit in the quarter window. I'd pitch in $$$ to get them done and setup an .eps for printing.
I used 123 last time, the quality wasn't that hot.

I don't know if I'd go that far. I've got over 350 posts there and have never once felt pressure from anyone to buy from AF1. If you know Aprilia, you know that AF1 is really the only place that's one-stop-shopping for the Aprilia aftermarket. Evoluzione who sells through AF1 has the performance monopoly within the Aprilia brand. While I agree that AF1 makes a lot of money from the business generated by hosting the site, I think that they'd still make the same amount if the site was hosted privately because they're the only place to go, and it's the only Aprilia forum out there worth a ****.
You might have some inside information, but I've been over there for four years now and I think it's healthy. Ed and Micah (the mods) run a good forum.
