Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Fast Service
#2 - Highly Customizable
#3 - Quality

Our Target Audience:

Mostly younger crowd looking to customize cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. But I still do quite a bit of work for customers wanting either decals to decorate their homes. Or even simple window decals for business owners. ALL sales done via website (no store front so maybe a small dot com integration).

Color Preferences

Logo will mainly be used on black background based web pages. I am partial to Black, and a skype color blue. Maybe simulated metal. But open to suggestions.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

See current site at Fast Decals dot com (sorry, don't want search engine to index link) Site is getting rebuilt with 2.0 style cart which should be live in the next few months. Would like to keep similar colors on the new site (not to current logo) to smooth the transition.

Design #1 (or #2) is really the style I am looking for. I should probably note that I would LIKE the main letters to have thick enough lines that I would be able to convert this into a die-cut style decal. This may be hard to explain but I'll try. Die-cut style decals consist just of the lettering with no background. So all material is removed outside the vector line and peeled of the sheet. This leaves a decal you that is typically seen on on windows. The problem is the line that is left after cutting needs to be around 1/10 of an inch (.25 cm) thick as the machine can't cut a line this small well. So design #1 would appear to need to be at least 20 inches wide (left to right) to have some of the thin lines in "FAST" be thick enough to cut. Realistically I would like to be able to have a design that is 5-8 inches wide and still have lines thick enough to cut. This is NOT a requirement but would be an added bonus if the design did allow something like this. You can visit the website to see the single color designs of typical die-cut decals. You will note that some simple designs can be made down to 1 inch size while more complex ones may only be available in 20 inch and up.

any vector deisgn can be made to any size....I am sure you already know that vectores are based on nodes and splines....bitmaps are the issue...A bitmap depending on oringinal quality will degrade as it's blownup (pixelated) you will not ahve resizin gissue with any vector logo

Yes, I work with vector art (almost exclusively in my business). But with a die-cut style decal, there are limitations to how small the machine can CUT two lines close to each other. If the machine is making a cut, then has to make another cut parallel to the first one (by only a few hair widths) the decal material will just tear as there isn't enough surface area to hold it in place. With large decals this is not an issue as the lines become much thicker when enlarged.

Maybe a video would help explain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zq6RQbziWwo This is an example of very easy to "weed" decals since the letters are very thick. If the letters were very small/thin, there would be issues trying to make them as the letters would just want to come off the sheet when peeling away the excess.

I wasn't really wanting a logo but I do like how #22 #9 and #5 all have incorporated a simple looking "peelable" decal look into the design.

Alt+D....not sure what is going on with your designs but I can't get access to make comments when I click on any of your designs. Not sure if it has anything to do with the "+" sign in your name but I get a "page not found" error when attempting to click on your links.

The Alt+D issue has been resolved with a name change. The system had an issue with the "+" symbol. My apologies for any inconvenience.
