@ Petrol_head, I dont mean to laugh at your efforts, so pls dont take this feedback /comment otherwise. But ..

The 'drive safe' font in the sample above seems to align itself with the animal in your profile pic.

Well, it adds an emphasis to the safety factor, which is what is being highlighted through the sticker in the first place.

Even though using the line "team bhp drives safe" sounds really nice and positive. I'm a little wary of using it on a drive safe sticker.I'm not sure if its a good think to collectively claim team-bhp drives safe. There is a probability that some members who have the stickers on their rides, do not really believe in driving safe..and they get spotted by non members who are aware of T-BHP. Wouldnt it then create a negative impression of the entire group??just a thought and concern, nothing more.
But if you have a sticker saying "Drive Safe" with the Team BHP logo on it, aren't you are implicitly involving the forum anyway? The only solution then would be to just print "Drive Safe" stickers without the TBHP name on it. Which sorta defeats the purpose of this thread

I guess if you stick a Team BHP sticker on your car - any sticker, not just this one - you do have to be a responsible member of the forum.

You can make that any color you like, its that simple. That was my point.

You've made a typo in the second last design on post #72

yep I have, did notice that. Its anyways a jpeg and if they get selected have the corrected source files so no worries

Yep it's simple but sometimes just the right colours have the impact

@ razor, yes even just mentioning team- bhp does implicitly send out a message no denying that. My comment like i mentioned bordered more on being risk averse and nothing more.

cheers mate

@Pranava : I guess Red would be the best color to do this, maybe with a white outline to help it on a RED car as well.

You'll are very welcome GS & Pranav, will keep giving feedback and hopefully, we will have a final render in the not too distant future.

Although even fewer words would be good, the length of the message is slightly compensated by the simplicity of the type

Thanks for the kind words, even my target was to deliver the message clear and loud without any clutter

Another workout..

My two bits. I'm keeping the colours simple for maximum impact. Don't want an accident because of people trying to read what is written

I could hit a cyclists while reading those suggestions on the back of the car in front.

Guys: back to the "We Two; Ours One" school of thinking: Minimum words!

Exactly my point! That is why I suggested such a simple design.

Default another version

a different version though inspired by the original options and rehaan's work. Again transparent stickers with a yellow lining or white lining. Ideally suited for the rear windscreen or on a dark body or bumper. BlaCK as an alternative colour for lighter coloured cars
