I do some graphic design work on the side, if I have time I'll definitely get something in illustrator or photoshop.
I also really like panhandlers designs. I too would go minimalistic, less colors keeps cost down.
Might I suggest a logo contest?

I'm reviving this thread in hopes that we can actually get some stickers going. I'm inspired by shreddit where I'm also active and one of the guys there just produced some nice vinyl stickers that are appearing on cars and boards. I'd love to have one for this place too. In any case, here's my design contribution to hopefully help get things restarted:



Anyhow, I won't be too bothered if everyone hates my design, I'm just hoping to at least get the ball rolling again and possibly settle on something.

Looked into this again...the problem with a design that's mostly text is that after the vinyl is cut, the cutter has to pick out all the extra vinyl bits between the letters (called "weeding") and they wanted to charge me an unreasonable amount of money to do it. The ways to go are a) to do a design that minimizes the weeding so they don't charge so much, or b) make it more like a printed sticker, with a solid background piece and the graphics printed on top of it. To me, the latter looks "cheap", whether it's on cars or boards or helmets or whatever.

So I'll change up the design I sent in to see if I can get around that extra charge, as the initial price quoted was decent. Back to the drawing board...

You can forego the weedings and just let people pick them out themselves. ir you can do it once you recieve the batch. Either way it isnt a MUST DO thing. i dont mind picking them out. it takers maybe 20 seconds per sticker.

Yeah, I envisioned this as a rounded-rectangle printed sticker (sorry, I'm cheap)

Here's another idea also:



This I would envision as a die-cut with a white border and no weeding. If this image looks familiar, it is a modified and vectorized version of Cr0_Reps_Smit's switch back 540.

Knocked this together in Illustrator... straight-up Method. I took a nod from Panhandler's vertical ".COM". Not super happy with the hat/goggles/face, but if there is interest, I could work on the concept more.
