Not that you can read one in a normal font when you're driving anyway.

I'd personally go for a simpler font for the back window, and the other one for the side window.

This is the kind of thing we need to decide unanimously on before we make a decision about getting any produced.

I agree that the rear window one must be clear so that it can be seen from a distance. I think the "official" font on the top is a very good font for the site, but isn't clear enough for the different job of advertising the forum on the back of an (often) speeding puma.

I chose the 7th one, poornut, as it has a similar disjointed look to the official one, yet is more readable and clear.

It's difficult to read the PP one I have at the moment from a distance.



I would prefer it in a clearer font, but it may be possible to get away with the fancy one...

The fine serifs and 'bits' of the Aftershock font will be problematic with vinyl cutting so maybe it's not such a good idea after all

Look at the top of page 1 Paul?

I seem to disagree with most people, having chosen 3! Oh well!

Ah, yeah, Ctrl F5 worked!! Ta

But now I can't seem to work out how to vote, oh bugger!!

Anyway, I like No 6. Isn't the font very similar to some of the URL stickers for the "other" Puma Forum, like on BOKs rear screen?

Edit - ok, after posting it let me vote!!

How much longer has this got to run before a decision is made?

There are only 12 votes! Is that enough to decide?

If so I take it we would go with style 6.

Size hasn't been discussed. I don't think anything too big and chavvy. The ones from the "other" sites shop are too big IMO. BOK and a few others have their own made up and that size is about right I think.

And what about colours?

Think we need to see where they can be done (Colin - looking at you for suggestions!!) sizes and styles etc. If it's not too much, maybe we can have them done to order for size / style and colour?

If you know where some can be done, speak up!

I know Elvin gets his graphics at http://www.funkygraphics.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. They did his cute tiny URL on his back window.

I will ask for a quote soon, I'd just like to see if we can get a few more votes in.

Personally I prefer #7. #6 is too near to being the font used by the other forum.

That will possibly be an option once we've decided on the font. :thumbs:
