    Decals/Graphics

    Hi Folks,

    I was thinking of putting together a sample set of decals.

    The usual GS Logo's for Tank/Beak/Luggage
    Taureg Guy
    Chevrons
    Shamrock/Dragon/Thistle etc
    Helmet Custom Decals (eg Site name)

    If there was enough interest, I would try to put a link or site together, so they could be viewed/ordered.

    Would there be any interest?

    Thanks! (all ideas and suggestions welcome)

    I think it's a fantastic idea


    one of our own getting some business in this environment, brilliant.




    Lloyd if I were you I would post some pics of stickers your thinking of running

    there's a good market here, just look at the reaction to the Fish Dash and the MMMMT weekend.

    Maybe you could bring some to the MMMMT weekend and have a Bike Top-Box Sale

    I'll certainly take some.

    I quite rightly IMO posted a response to the original read starters post it was two links one to the merchandising section on UKGSer

    http://www.ukgser.com/merchandise/index.php?cPath=21
    and one to 2 wheel humvees sticker business which he has posted in the vendors section both of them cover the sticker types mentioned in the original post.
    I started no spat, i pointed out the fact that their were already stickers available already from UKGser Vendors

    If anything the post should have been moved to the vendors section( unless he's doing these for free).. the way it looks now is that the thread has biased to allow one person to start and flog stickers the majority of which are already available from vendors on the site already but that info is now being kept hidden.

    I have not seen any of the other 7 deleted posts so i don't know what was posted after I posted. All i know is I can see no Justification for the deletion of my post and leave Ravenbyrnes left in place

    Baised moderation IMO

    Why can someone else not manufacture stickers? If PD can compete on quality and price then as a site sponsor he should have every opportunity.

    As a point of information he is sponsoring the stickers for the event and they will be handed out free to each attendee.

    Your post is re-instated.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    Paddy there's plenty of folks down your way that don't have the opportunity to get stickers and don't know of the other 2 folks in the vendors section

    Also you have the bother with the currency exchange and postage etc etc

    So Yes I think ye have a good idea there bud! Good Luck
    Oh Great and Wise Deity, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    Courage to change the things I can! And the wisdom to know the difference!

    Why ? Just cos someone started doing it before you doesn't mean they've exclusivity. Besides, what do foreigners know about producing stickers with an Oirish theme ?
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    It wasn't even that, I've been in this business for 20 years and do it for a living, its not a sideline!.

    What I didn't get was, why my offer created such a "hoo ha" compared to the t-shirt thread?

    I thought I was doing something out of order! being a noob!

    Well for a start the T-shirt thread is about a Polo Shirt for the event and I'm sure like any of the past event T-shirts jackets etc. I've got embroidered or printed for past events all the Profits from selling the polo shirts will go to a charity.

    Your post to most would just looked like someone going to start up a motorbike related sticker sideline and really have no relation to the event.

    I don't know what the other deleted posts on the thread were but i know mine was to point out the majority of what you listed already was catered for on the site...

    I Did however have a problem with my post being deleted and spat sorted posted after mine

    At no point did i say you or anyone else could or should not manufacture stickers..IMO the more choice you have the better...If you do start manufacture stickers to sell you have the same right as any of the pannier makers etc. but like every other vendor on the site it should be done through the vendors section.

    er... no.
    not to me anyhow.

    more choice is always good.
    as for the vendors section - given the sheer size of the site now, maybe it was simply not seen / known about by Paddy?
    give him a break - takes a while to get the hang of this place.

    appears bright from a distance / dim up close
