I thought about this too, not making, but adding one to my ride!

I'd like to suggest getting different colors so we can pick and choose how it looks on our car!

We could probably do something like this. I don't know what prices are but what do you all value decals at? Would be a good way to gauge whether it's possible to do on a mass scale...

I'd buy them if they were small and fit some place like the license plate frame. Way better than advertising for the dealership.

I'd pay a couple of bucks for a decal! Something small enough to be shipped via USPS and not have a giant cost to get them to everyone across the states!

Don't forget us, could be sent worldwilde...cheap.

For the colors, I don't know what you think but to keep it cheap 1 color is better. I think retroreflective white or grey should looks great on all cars.

Here is an example, the logo on my rear window is retroreflective

about $5-7 each. that would allow for a little profit to be made to buy give-away stuff!

same for me. but i dont have photoshop to make the decal layout. anyone?
do you have a plotter @ home? if so, then you are the MAN! if you're looking to update your photoshop, do some research about torrent sites, download bit torrent, and remember that copyright laws are there for a reason and that piracy is stealing *just a disclaimer*

I actually created the forum logo with photoshop and have a pretty big PSD for it already. I'll talk to some sticker shops and get prices during the first week of February.

Hopefully that's not too long but between the image upload issue we had earlier this month, the upcoming contest where we're going to give away free car parts and having to upgrade the forum server (again!) to meet demand I'm pretty beat. :p

josh, if you need a hand let me know. for decals, eps files in illustrator would be better, that way any size can work as it will be vector art. i have cs4, a legit full version at that. let me know what i can do.

Forum logo would be cool. If I may suggest an alternate I would say "M3R" so we can have it a larger font then small underneath it write "Mazda3Revolution.com". I like the idea of just having the decal without a background to it though, I think I read someone say black on white. (that might have just been for a test/demo to see what it would look like)

Hey guys, just mocked up a M3R logo/decal. Any suggestions or thoughts? I was thinking we can change to color of the "3" in the logo according to the color of your MZ3 just to differentiate.

I like this design. The font is not what I expected but I think it looks cool and industrious with the vertical and horizontal "guide" lines!

Maybe condense the line spacing between M3R and the actual web address would look better!!!

as a graphic designer, that says M3P to me
The little marks will be a problem if people are looking for a cut vinyl graphic also. they would give the person making them fits and they would not last long once installed unless they were thickened up, which would lose the look you were going after.

It would need to be a printed graphic on decal material which would raise costs.

Good point! But we have to give credit since it was the first attempt!
