Also, if anyone is looking into designing stickers, think about doing one alla NDSOC's shield sticker. I'm not a big fan of putting stickers on my cars, but I wouldn't mind doing twin shields of NDSOC and vicZcar on the bottom of the tailgate window, if ya know what I mean.

Would be nice to show them off when they're done!

Failing that I guess I'll put together 10 or so designs and everyone can vote on their favourites.

We need something modern with classic and simple trimmings,
as im bored right now i'll give something a try
GAV< what dimensions and DPI should i be working it to,,,

I don't think anyone wants one of those shiny reflecting ones that take up 3/4 of your rear window like the Mario's in their VL's seem to love :twisted: :roll: not that there's anything wrong with that .
I was actually thinking of creating the sticker as a vector image. That way it will have very nice defined lines and we could also do it easily in a range of sizes for all kinds of purposes like shirts/coffee mugs/small and large stickers etc..
I think in terms of DPI a minimum for print would be 300DPI but your only gonna need 72DPI on the screen.
I guess we should really work out a size we want the sticker to be first. I'm having a rough guess and saying 20 X 20 cm would be good but how do others feel?
FORMULA FOR DETERMINING SIZE.
800 X 600 PIXEL IMAGE.
800/72 = 11.11 Inches
600/72 = 8.33 Inches
This formula can be transposed so that you can find what you'll need for a certain size sticker however you must use inches pixels and dpi for the formula to work converting to cm's later.
If you get what i mean.
Anyway just have a shot at it anyway since we're not printing it yet i don't know how good you are at using vector based drawings but i thought something along the lines of that cool art you see for cars would be good. EG: those huge rims and exhaust pipes under a squashed S30 shape .
However i also like the idea sulio had of using a 2 bit image of a Z.

Car stickers need to be screen printed in order to prevent fading.
Traditional "offset" printing using 4 colour process with plates is no good, picture will look great, but this type of process cant lay down enough ink to stop fading after a few years of sun exposure.
Therefore screen printing is the way to go. Avoid any stipple effect, solid colours work best and less colours makes it cost effective; as normally they are printed on a one colour press, requiring a separate pass and wash-up for each colour. Sulio's black and red design would work quite well under this process.
Some stickers look great on the screen, but turn out terrible when screen printed.
The NDSOC stickers are screen printed. My two cents?

I'm sure we can come up with something that will be basic and effective at the same time. Infact this will be a good practice exercise for myself.

I'm planning this sticker out as about 8cm square. Similar in size to the ndsoc shield sticker.

I played around with the wording of the center circle as I wasn't sure what worked the best. I tried the 240Z/260Z instead of the S30/S130 as people would be able to more easily recognise the Z names rather than the body models (I know I have left out the ZX's, couldn't work out a nice way to fit it all in )

Nigel, you seem to know quite a bit about the whole sticker process ins and outs, are you involved in the printing game? Any ideas on where to get a good deal on the next batch of stickers we get made up mate?

I have an idea using the same elements for a long sticker. Which of the four wordings that I posted did you like the best? I'll fix that one up to have heavier strokes and also make a long version using those words.
If you like, I can send you the illustrator version of the images.
