I took advantage of the images that Ron has posted and made up a few formatted jpeg files.

One for a bumpersticker, I used Vistaprint.com to have mine made.

The other two for either a window sticker or small bumper sticker for a grooved vehicle. Figure approx. 3"-4" in size. Getting these made can be a little more expensive per piece so mine might be down the road, although it would be nice to have them at the time a groove has been done.

If the customer really likes their groove they should have no problem wearing it on their vehicle.

Two files were too big for upload, you can grab them off Facebook at Gadgetman Tacoma page or let me know and I can e-mail them to you.

I have set up a Google e-mail account specifically for the Gadgetman work, you can send the requests there.

Here's what they look like on the vehicle, the window sticker is homemade so the colors are not solid.

The images I have, I've made some contrast adjustments to get better pronouncement of the colors.

The inverted image for the window decal is attached to the original post, the other two images that I have exceeded the upload size for the forum but I do have them on my Facebook page >> Gadgetman Tacoma

The image for the Bumpersticker can be downloaded from...


The "Grooved" sticker image can be downloaded from...


I used to have the bumberstickers made, for 20pc they wanted $1.75each plus a standard shipping fee. If you order a hundred you can get their price down to $1.50 each.

If you have a local shop in your area you may be able to get a better deal especially for the "Grooved" stickers and window sticker. I thought Vistaprint was a little pricey for the quantity I wanted.

This is for the regular sticker, the one for the window/clear sticker would require the .png image which removes the white background from the image.



Added thought... The Grooved stickers can be printed 4 on a bumper sticker and cut down... here's the image






I can e-mail the images to anyone that would like them delivered that way.

Just send me an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I'll send out the full set. It would be in three seperate e-mails just to keep the size limitation down.

I think I'm going to save some time here, I've uploaded all the files to a folder on my 'web space'

goto , each image is linked to the original file.

Click on the image, it will display the actual image, right-click on this image and 'save picture as', it will allow you to select where to save it, click 'save'

To get back to the main page, just go back one screen on your web page and repeat.

Hope this speeds things up a bit.

Here is another method for advertising, if your going to buy T-shirts and you want to deduct them from your business expenses...













Price on Vistaprint is about $20 each, their price break isn't all that so I only buy 2 or 3.

Hi Orrist,

A perfectly good idea, thanks.

I do have a seperate "Grooved" sticker that I would put on the side window. I get 4 of those out of one bumper sticker.

Thanks

I just found this thread and thought that I'd share too...

I'm putting together fliers to leave at the counter of each of the stores that my other half manages and she wanted the flyer to have a QR code (they are cell phone stores).

So, here you go....below is a QR code hosted on Photobucket and easily able to be copied. This QR code when scanned will take you to GadgetmanGlobal - YouTube .

Hope this helps somebody,

Hey Guys/Gals...here's a flyer that I recently made up.
I'm going to be passing these out at local stores...please give me your feedback.
If you'd like to use it and just change your name, you can.
I attached the publisher file below (just open in publisher and your can edit).
Hope this helps somebody, if there's something that I need to change, please tell me.
