Looks good, Dan. Count me in for a few. I would like the chromed ones like you described.

They are die-cut letters, images, etc with no background. This way you don't have a shiny-looking rectangle or circle. Much cleaner looking since every bit of text and images is a separate piece. It also can give some nice depth and look like a plastic emblem more than a "sticker".
My wife I a also push her button . But now she have her button push by a different men. So I buy a keyboard a mechanicale, she a reliable like a Fiat.

a fellow gh'er just made me aware of this :o

i actually invested some time in this on my own before the site went down. between myself and another forum member i was going to go through on a couple dozen for a trial run, however since coming up with the new site we are i guess in limbo for a new logo.

i did go to a local graphics company and we worked on the old logo with the old colors (minus keyboard enthusiasts) :)..............which now appears to be old business. i still think it is better than the new logo's but it's what everybody wants i guess.........

to keep the quality it was pointed out i had to go with a larger format color printer that prints in a 54" roll versus a smaller die cut 4 color process thermal printer. the smallest sticker-decal with the quality we would want would have been .5 x 3.5........13 per row with margins or multiples of 13- a protective laminate was an option. it's basically just a transfer to the surface- basically like a decal you would put on glass vs a bumper sticker.

we also thought before we did anything it would have been appropriate to check with imav............, but since the forum never settled on a logo i just left it alone. we wanted to try to get the size small enough to fit above the arrows on a tenkeyless at least as well.

this would be a huge under taking who ever would take it on in a group buy. it was brought up that maybe if everybody was on-board to add a buck or something for a donation to go to maintaining the forum.

Looks pretty good to me. The letter size requirement looks like the challenge with what has been posted thus far.

Quote
Letters must be a minimum size of .3 inches with a stroke width of .0625 inches to maintain adhesive properties and efficient production.

Other reqs seem easy enough.

has anyone worked with DCS before? general idea of what you can get for a hundred bucks through them?

one nice thing about DCS is that there's no need to ship. plenty of people available that can go pick up from their location.

we don't particularly need full-color or any intricate shapes tbh. just a GH sticker dudes. stick it!

fwiw if i'd seen your thread (i still don't know where it is), i would have joined that one instead!

JUST WANT DAT STICK

it occurred to me though, this sticker must have "geekhack.org" on it somewhere

hash is also going to produce a GH cherry cap sticker design with geekhack.org on the bottom. we could each produce one of the logos? :D

just a reminder that we're blocked on hash (out of town) and mmb for these. once i have a printable design from hash i will order a batch from stickerrobot. dangwang will order mmb's cleanup of his design as a diecut, chromed or whatever he chooses.

i will personally come up with ways to distribute my batch, hopefully as promotional items at no cost to those who receive the stickers (although we may ask for pics!).

dangwang can do what he chooses with his batch.

Would be in if it was the cherry clone stickers.  Those chrome ones look great.

Or do a phantom sticker set for our boards.

just perspective and the software distortion correction the iphone does. the sticker is properly centered

edit: ahahaha, actually you're right, this particular sticker is off-center. the rest look ok though.
