Well, hey y'all! Thanks so much for the kind words about the Goin' Down the Road (feelin' fine, too!) design. It's warmed this girl's winter-worn heart.

Our '85 345 friend is correct in the assesment both four-color and die cut processes are more expensive. I am curious to see what pricing is on the newer technology of digital printing, which in my experience can provide a more cost-effective solution. However I would suggest further research on that process, I'm not familiar with the durability of fade-resisitance on a digital graphic.

The Blue Globe design would look fantastic as a die-cut decal. Depending on quantity, that option may become less of an issue in the per piece pricing. However, in my opinion it would work well as on a clear rectangular background as well, thus eliminating that expense.

Keep in mind the etch-look design is a subtle approach, not something that will stand out from a distance. I like the suggestion of offering both a color and etched version and either design should be suited.

I know the choice is difficult,the designs appeal to distinctly different sensibilities. However I do think it is essential to choose one design or the other, so the Forums may have an established identity. If my design is not chosen as such, I'd be happy to work with anyone interested in developing it for another application for your individual Airstream. I am sure our other artist would as well.

Happy Trails...goin' down the road! carmen

visual experiment with sticker designs

A few minutes ago I printed out the two contender designs, plus one of my other favorites, on clear plastic. The height dimension for both designs was about 4 inches. From a distance of approximately 15 feet, only the blue globe and the red square were "readable" as distinct designs. Of these two, the blue globe was more readable, with "Airstream" being decipherable. I could probably have also deciphered "Forums.com" by squinting, but probably only because I am familiar with these terms.

Many eons ago, my high school art teacher told us that billboards should be able to be read from a car passing at (minimally) 35 mph. If we apply the same principle to the two designs, I think the blue globe wins. To minimize costs, it could be printed on a clear plastic rectangle, rather than die cut. Anyone who wanted to do so could then cut it out. (We do aluminum and rivets, right?!!)

Hope this helps.
Eugenie

Wow I've been away for awhile and was pleasantly surprised to come back and find my two favorite designs have made it to the "next round"!

Just a thought on the technical aspects of printing either design:

From my point of view it would seem that the Blue logo would look best printed in three spot colors on clear. (White, Blue, and Light Blue).

Goin down the road would be great as a four color on silver mylar so the A/S could be silver and really stand out.

As Carmen mentioned there are a variety of ways the printing could be accomplished - screening being the most fade resistant. When and if the time comes that we might get to do shirts, mugs, license plates, etc then digital processes would save costs since more colors are being used and greater detail can be achieved. This is especially true when small production runs are required, say from one to one hundred pieces.

I can't wait to see where this goes! Both images are great.

:-)

Just a blue note....

Hi all. Thought I'd shed some light about my blue globe. First off, it was designed to be put on a clear square decal with just the rectangle area behind the name appearing frosted. As it was pointed out, this could be easily trimmed out with scissors for a more "custom" fit, if desired.

This was also done to satisfy the comments about the logo not being color biased and many thought a frosted or etched look would be universal as well as cool looking. I used blue because that seems to be the color most associated with Airstream.

Second, I purposely stayed away from any particular coach design because this forum represents all Airstream owners, vintage and current day, trailers and motorhomes, etc. I've gotten a lot of requests for motorhome illustrations on my custom t-shirts, so I was very aware of the demand for a design that would encompass our entire community of Airstream owners and not just trailers.

Lastly, I think the wording or slogan sums up what our forum is all about. "Sharing the knowledge, experence and lifestyle of past, present and future owners." This tells what our club is all about in a concise statement for those not familiar with the forum. It also makes the statement we were here, we are here and we will continue to be here.

Oh, and the globe itself says it all because we are indeed, a worldwide organization in both the virtual and literal sense.

Just some personal insight behind the design of my blue globe logo, for your consideration.

I do like both designs, however, and am quite happy to see them in final competition. May the best design win as it will represent the membership and our overall club image!

Does anyone have an et on the stickers? In fact, I don't even know which design won the vote. I, for one, would like to see this process conclude - soon.
