I pulled the VSTROM stickers off of my flat black wee and now I want to customized it a little with some self-designed stickers.

I am not looking for anything fancy or highly stylized. I want the stickers to be made out of fairly simple shapes of all one highly reflective color. I would put these stickers on the side of the tank and maybe also on my GIVI bags.

Depending on the complexity of the sticker., I might just get a sheet of Vinyl and cut it myself or have it cut professionally.

I thought of some simple themes and I have some examples here, which I made with ms Powerpoint. They are all drawn with a black background to get a feel of what they would look like on my flat black bike.

I kind of like the Alien theme, because it goes with the shape of the bike:










I saw this rhino on an image in this forum and blatantly hand-copied it and pasted it here cause I thinks it looks cool:



Also I saw a few bumble bees and created this one:


As you can tell I am not an artist, but that’s ok because I want the sticker to have a home-made cartoonish-look anyhow.

I am looking for other ideas. I have seen plenty of web sites that sell stickers but nothing that catches my eye. Anybody out there have any graphic ideas?

http://www.decalzone.com/ is a good place to start even if you want to design your own. They even offered to cut me one from reflective material if the pattern wasn't too complex.

Here is a military decal site with numerous decals, many of which arent recognizable as military, so would be suitable for any use.

http://www.military-graphics.com/army_unit5.html

Check out the 66th ID "jumping cat" on p 5 (or 6) of the Army unit page.

For those of you that are prior military...thank you for your service!

Thanks for this link, I didn't know this existed. Unfortunately they don't have my old unit's patch (A-10's without the frickin shark's teeth). I love the nose art decals, gives me more ideas for this winter's paint project.

Here is a preview of a little something I've been working on:D

I'm also thinking of replacing the R with DL but in the same style.

That is freakin' AWESOME!!! I want to see a 1000 version... maybe 996, since that's the actual displacement. What about making the first letter "S" for Suzuki?

All of these are really good! I prefer the version that have the first letter(s) in the contrasting block of color. I also really like the addition of "adventure."

Could you do the bottom one but with the same style "S" at the front as the one on the end, instead of the official Suzuki "S?"

So obviously this thread is long dead - however I love the look of the decals, and have found them available at Cypress Graphic. I'd like to customize it a little bit more and wondered if anyone knew what the font was? I have a plan, but it's a secret. :)
