Ok, we're getting ready to purchase these. I want to get some idea of exactly how many people are going to order them.

What size?
I think something about 1" x 6" would be as small is it should be. 1.25" x 9" would be better, but maybe too big. Sound off for what size you would like.

Type
It looks like we're going to have to get plain white lettering, formatted to fix the logo and cut. It should be pretty clean.

Who wants one?
I have seen some prices for about $8-10 each, plus shipping. I want to shop it around a bit to see who can do it cheaper. I need to see if cafepress.com can do these window decals, it doesn't look like it but we'll see.

I think its a great idea but cant the letters be the same color as the top of the page? like the blue with the whit outline? Another thing i think would be nice is the 1 1/4 X 9. What about the sticker without the .com so just GMTruckClub or maybe not maybe a vote to decide? size and style? like dont take it the wrong way but im sure most ppl agree that if im gonna put the sticker on my truck i want it to look decent. but neways when u get them done ill most likely take one keep posted!

I think the 1.25 by 9 would be best. I do however think that the .com should be left on. You want people to get on and check it out and maybe join themslves. But either way I a in for one. Also I know a guy who does good work he did the decal in my truck, if you get a design done up l me know and i can check with him. I also have an advertising agent that I do a lot of work with. Let me know what you want if you don't already have a design and maybe he can throw some things together, He designed all of my business cards and flyers and the sticker. Like I said just let me know.

Yeah, it would be GMTruckClub.com

I am not certain if I can get a moulded sticker that is in color or not. I think there are different types of glass, tint, etc that need to be considered as well. Maybe two colors if there are people that want it like that. I'll put a white one on my TB because it will contrast against the dark privacy glass.

I am in also

Is this going to be a stick on the outside sticker or a stick on the inside sticker? I think we should try a bunch of different designs and let everyone vote on it. I think the GMTruckClub.com is a good name of course but the font is a little Vanilla for me. I think if we want to get it noticed we need to make it a striking look, cooler look, however you want to say it. I also think that everyone would be willing to pay more for a color that would match more with their color scheme on there vehical. I know that cost is a factor but I think they would be more effective and in higher demand if they were cool looking.

Ok, we're working on the first batch, I have talked with a few folks and we should get the order done sometime soon. I'll put a paypal payment section on here to order them as well.

I think the question was asked earlier, but I don't think it got answered, and I'm curious myself. Are these to be interior or exterior stickers?

If they are to be interior, are you considering static type, or adhesive type?

I personally think either white or silver, and exterior type.
I think we're all in agreement that most of our members plan on placing them on their windows, and probably most 95% or more have tinted glass where they will be putting them. The silver or white will stand out very nicely against the tinted glass.

I agree with the font type, and that's assuming you were going to make it a carbon copy of the site's existing logo. It may be a little too vanilla. I wonder if you can match the font to what GM was using for their weight class a few years back. It was block letters, and slightly skewed so the top of the print was a little behind the bottom. Made it look like the numbers were moving fast:lol: I can't find a pic right now.

I'll definitely get one. It may take some doing to get the wife's approval to put on on her baby, the Avalanche.

Quick Facts about Decals

- Exterior Stickers
- Vinal material
- White or Silver
- Still working on the final layout
- Looking for something around 1x6 to 1.25x9

I'm all for getting one. I think that 1.25 would be a little short, maybe 1.5 or even 2 inches, especially if it's going to be 9 inches long. Otherwise, it would look grossly out of proportion. I would like an exterior sticker that I'd place on my rear glass, which at the moment isn't tinted, but it will be eventually. I like TrailEadr's font idea, although I also like the logo at the top of the page. Perhaps we could also throw some sort of tag line on it, I have no clue what to say, but just a little snazzy line like "mine's bigger than yours" or something silly like that. OK, I'm out of ideas, keep us posted Steve.

Whatever you get Steve, I'm buying. As much work as you have put into this site I'll be happy to advertise for and promote the site no matter the design. And I'll buy a half dozen even though I only have two vehicals. Keep up the great work Steve!!

Whoo hoo. Maybe I can retire if you buy enough stickers! :great:

I think I can deliver a window sticker for about $10 postage paid to anyone who wants one. I will produce a small batch of 25 white decals and then we'll see if some people want silver, I can get that design done and maybe make them this month.

I want these delivered this month to folks who want them! :party:

As I get to know what these are better, it appears that they will be one color with no design. They're vinyl appliques that are cutout, not printed pieces like a T-shirt or poster.

Now, I just threw together the "logo" in the upper left-hand corner of the website. Maybe it's time to think about a different logo, or maybe that's for round 2?

NOTE: The black background will NOT be on the logo. Just wanted to give some contrast.

Its not possible to get the same color as in the upper left corner is there?

If not what about changing the font to something like a bit more rounderish/bubbly sorta? like that font what is it times new roman? what about like a comic sans sort of font?
