OC carryover from /osg/ 42.
got rid of the obvious anime slaps
I'm trying to come up with a slap for people who aren't into weeb stuff but still looks good.
I have a really hard time coming up with text though. Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything I should add/change?
If it's a shit idea I'll scrap it
Holy shit senpai! I finally got something from CD. I've still got like 10-15 slaps somewhere out there, but this is a start. One of them is the layered Impact Blue that I genuinely didn't think I was going to get. I had moved on. Also got Picnic Squad and something related to Picnic Squad that I've never seen before. I didn't order the red Akina Speed Stars slap, but I like it. Got the V1 Senpai's Dead and Better Off Alone as well. Looks like I'm just waiting on 1 more big order from December and then 1 from the Series 4 release and then the layered Pikachu slap from last night.
ugh, fuck this image shit. If it actually works here's the collection to date.
Can't get it not sideways but I put these on a few days ago.. shouts out for the quick shipping and sweet batman stamp
holy shit, they arrived fast
thanks for the bonuses too
Especially on big or expensive orders sometimes they'll throw in bonuses. Nothing special just some backstock they've got lying around. Same thing happened last time I ordered from CD too.
Lots of anons say they have issues with CD taking forever to arrive.
>place order on Jan. 7th
>order arrives today.
>ordered "Rain or Shine-Gold Flake," "Initial Series - Akina Speed Stars Mystery", and "Never Stop"
>got "Rain or Shine-Gold Flake" and "Initial Series - Project D"
That Katagiri one is a lot better than anything I had. Glad someone was able to make something decent.
Did you take them off and put them back on? How hard were they to remove?
yo senpai can anyone make some lain slaps or a chaika peeking type sticker
So for anyone who ordered cut vinyl stuff, my transfer tape hasn't arrived for some reason even though it was supposed to be here thursday so those can't ship out until monday (presumably it will arrive by then). I'm gonna go check out fabric stores later to see if they stock this stuff.
Anyone else who ordered just stickers I will ship out later today. Here's most of the orders laid out for shipping so you guys don't think I'm pulling a BSG with the delay. many of them are not going to ship yet because they need their vinyl cut with transfer tape, and that's why some of the mailing envelopes have none on top. I'm sorry for any delays but I didn't expect this volume. Stay tuned.
There are comments in the bigcartel order too, I completely forgot about that. From now on just state in the comments about what colors you want. If you still want to email me go ahead.
I used the auto color balance tool in Lightroom with the white vinyl as the target neutral colour so even if my IPS monitor is miscalibrated (it probably is to a certain extent), it should be decently in balance. Atleast more than the original yellowed version
shit nigga idk lol
I was going to take a picture in full sun on top of my car but it's too dark when I woke up. That would probably be the most accurate for what we want and my camera's auto white balance would probably work best with that kind of light. I just bought it as an amateur photography kind of thing so I haven't learned to use 90% of its functions yet.
I remember I one anon said he wanted a Spice and Wolf slap. These are all the S&W related images I have, I can post whichever anyone wants since i'm shit at graphics.
Thanks as well! Also thanks for the extra stickers, maybe one day I can be senpai.
Also found this on the pink heart, it's not a big deal to me but I thought you should know.
It's a layered cut vinyl. If you'd like some shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I've got a ton of colors but blue turquoise and pink are the popular ones
PICS OF PANTSU ON CAR WHEN?
I just want to see my magnum opus realised! REEEE!
also sorry anons but I will be taking down the determination sticker. https://twitter.com/fwugradiation/status/649753684310642688
those who bought it will get it, but I don't want to get a letter from the undertale dev.
I thought OP was getting it printed?
I don't get why not, We doubt he would ever sell anything in his own merch shop, if he said "no merch I'm selling" then whatever but nothing at all is kinda dumb.
Nothing about giving away for free. :^)
But it's an annoying sticker to make
I'm unsure, I think tweeting him would be the best way to find out but I don't use twitter.
I got my orders in from ya~
Thanks so much for the extras too! I'll post pics of them when I'm able to take them in the daytime.
Just got home, I'll have the silhouette done tomorrow afternoon or so
>Just got home, I'll have the silhouette done tomorrow afternoon or so
I got like 9 designs in my WIP folder so I'm not one to talk but weren't you working on a saber slap? I was looking forward to that.
I wasn't, but adding stripes is apparently my new specialty. If he would like to do
It and sell him he can, if not I'll plan on doing it
Did you get both packages? I hope they turned out well for you!
Well what's funny is the shit you're currently bitching about happened 2 threads ago. /osg/ 42 was a very productive thread almost from start to finish. And the only non-sticker related shit currently going on in 43 is all the shitposting bitching about how there's so much shitposting in /osg/ and now you can add my response to that. So stop ruining this thread by bitching about how these threads have been ruined.
I'd scrap it desu senpai. There's nothing particularly inspired about the concept and the execution is mediocre. Even if it were polished to a mirror shine it'd drown in a sea of generic car phrase slaps.
Also (and this is just my opinion) slaps that use photos instead of art can come out looking crappy ESPECIALLY if there's no clearly established focal point. Maybe if you artificially washed out or unfocused the background the car would draw the eye a little bit, but ultimately I think black cars with black wheels tend to not be very photogenic. So maybe a different picture would be beneficial.
finally put this one on, think I might remove the midnight mischief I put on the back window
Do slaps reminiscent of vintage racing liveries exist yet? What made me think of it is one of my favorite liveries is the John Player Special Lotus 77. Obviously you couldn't sell slaps that say John Player Special on them, but there's nothing saying you couldn't do black layered over gold with the text "Special" (in a similar font) and a nice chunky border in a muted gold. Similar things could be done for a bunch of those classic liveries.
Better yet, just sell die cuts of each individual word in the phrase and divide the price by the number of words. All he's doing is selling die cut words. What order the customer arranges them in is not his responsibility.
Posting my OC again since it hasn't been posted since thread #7
Flip the M to make a W, remove the R, respace text for symmetry, and add the classic stripes. Should be sufficient enough to be considered parody.
I appreciate the advice. I made that thinking I'd be the guy making all the non weeb stuff for people but as the day went on I liked it less and less. I knew from the start that the text was bad, I was trying to get some inspiration for that but it never really came.
Anyways, I appreciate it. Hopefully I can come back with something better. If not, there are better people in this thread
All orders without vinyl cut have shipped.
I have an old transfer tape roll my friend gave me but I'm going to wait for the new roll so that applying will be as clean and easy as possible.
Wonder what happened with international orders?
A literal representation of apex seals. As in a group of seals that sit at the apex of a corner. You could either leave it as a subtle joke for auto enthusiasts or add text "APEX SEALS".
I'm back with the Ohio pantsu sticker idea. What do you think?
I'm really quite satisfied. But thanks, one day I'll bother you for more because one day I'll run out of these.
Hmmmm. It's not as distinguishable as a heart as a previously thought. I like it, but I'm afraid that the Ohayou and pantsu messages both might be too diluted for anyone to understand.
What if you combined the two as sort of a mash-up? Take a heart pantsu in pink then overlap a smaller teal Ohayou (with or without the border around Ohayou, not sure if it would be recognizable without it) lined up so the stripes mesh and both are distinguishable. Then maybe add Ohayou! or rune equivalent in black. Pantsu x Ohayou!
I really wanted to buy this one from BSG, but then that didn't turn out so well. Anyone know what the most cost-effective way to get this made would be (only a few for myself and friends, would possible sell a few)?
No I love the WAT logo, it's simple and clean.
I got my sticker from trolly, I don't know how the new ones are. Might be better quality.
Also, I always park my car with the rear facing west so the sticker got hit with a lot of sun
Printed on a white background, I believe. Its the sticker that was on the 787b.
Some anon left me a note in the campus parking lot
you guys are crazy over "SO NICE"
>tfw you aren't noticed by another /o/tist
I remember in my small town I saw a guy with a WAT sticker on his rear windshield but I never saw him again. I was honestly surprised.
>tfw no one from /o/ has noticed my car yet
You'd think someone would eventually since I post it too much
That challenger is making me hard.
I went behind this guy and played loud eurobeat in hopes he was one of us in his meme car. No response sadly.
Eh, it's a preliminary run to see how good that print shop's results are. Most of the printed stickers are references to a semi-obscure gondolier show and I never expected them to sell well. I don't know what's explicitly bad about the rest of them though.
I need a minimum order of 100 but they can be any combination. I'd like to keep to the 8x3 format.
Thing is, they're not bad, but there's so many fucking amazing stickers, that those are just average and meh by now. It's really depressing honestly, I feel like I'll never make a top tier sticker again with the bars set so high.
its probably the best in the collection next to these
and thats 8inches by 3inches? Im slowly losing my mind at 2:30am sorry
Eyo, Notorious BIG, you want this?
Oh yeah I get what you mean.
The ACR sticker looked nice when I made it but after waiting so many months it ended up just being average once I started looking into other stuff. I think good decals look nice.
Also I really like way the tracks came out, when they are cut they look really fucking nice and if you put it next to the team name from WAT they look even better.
imo my favorite of the cut ones I have is the Fujiwara Pizza one.
Yeah, they offer transparent vinyl so doing that one would be easy.
So if any /osg/ artists are up tonight how about a slap with a nice busty animu girl and the text "Would you? Could you? In a car?
Eat them! Eat them! Here they are."
In case you're retarded or a fetus that's from Green Eggs and Ham.
narrow. The vinyl is supposed to be rated for outdoor use for a few years but depending on where you live obviously that'll be different.
I will take real pictures of the vinyl cuts tomorrow outdoors.
I don't know what you mean. But before you send it to me, I suggest making the "GET MORE POWER" border larger or more pronounced somehow. I don't think it's very visible from a distance.
>general dedicated to car stickers
>shitty ones at that
What's it like being cancer? I'd figure the only people who would actually like inside jokes and epic animay stickers plastered on their belongings would be preteens, but I guess I'm wrong
Trust me, I've tried a million different variations and this is the best on. Mainly because of the spacing. 100% sure it will look more pronounced with the clear vinyl behind it.
And you know how people put their "brand" name on their stickers? That's what I meant.
Oh, naw. I'm not big on the branding thing. Yet. I'm thinking of a logo with my friend that incorporates the katakana somehow, but when we find something acceptable I'm sure you'll see it in newer stuff.
>Id like to support your efforts.
Guys, what cars do you generally put stickers on? To me it feels like it should be a sporty jap shitbox most of the time to make it work. Like nobody would put a sticker on a really nice and expensive classy car, or on a boring, girly DD.
I have a 2000 Yaris and there's so many stickers I want, but it feels like it would just look stupid and embarrassing on a boring car like this. I'll never be able to pull it off like the celica guy.
This is what it looks like exactly if you're wondering lmao.
Your caps look pretty empty there an/o/n! Why not buy 4 stickers and slap them on there to give it a little more pizzazz?
Does this guy live in the middle of buttfuck nowhere? What's with this shitty shipping price?
Super shitty mock up but it was kind of a shitty idea so its perfect!
My stickers are made with oracal 651 (or 751 in some colors)
This stuff is supposed to last 6 years outdoors
I have no idea what vinyl trolly used, but the ones I bought from him years ago were not branded vinyl
You know what dude, I've designed in 3 fucking threads and got nothing but shit from it. From you. I had a whole post typed about putting my down payment and shit for AW and starting an order but fuck it, I'm not gonna fucking do shit now. I'm sick of threads being derailed over a fucking faggot who has an issue with people making/buying stickers in a sticker thread. So fucking what I don't own a car. I've been over this and I'm just done. This shit is too toxic, I don't blame BSG for fucking you cunts over. I was gonna take my money and time to make stickers for people who wanted them. Guess that's not enough, cause you need a car to be in the "cool kids club" with all the anons. Fuck outta here
all these weeb stickers look the same
where's the originality?
No seriously that site went up a couple months after I put watracing.com up
they then sent me and Trolly cease and desist letters.... yeah
I occasionally get complaints that orders on the .org site aren't shipped, and considering they haven't updated in years, I would consider it a dead site.
for a moment i thought i ordered from the wrong site
kek i'll put my wat sticker on my scooter
I got up this morning and started working on designs. Aesthetically I think it looks good but I think we might be throwing a little too much into the pot. The "message" might be getting a little convoluted.
Still, I think it's good looking. Pink and turquoise go well together
Fuck, I always forget to link the image
I JUST WANT AN AISAKA TAIGA STICKER REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>go back to reddit
Have you even seen this general? It's all fake otakus and ironic memers begin with
Ehh, I feel like it just makes it harder to tell what the turquoise is
You know what dude, I've talked like a euphoric weeb in 3 fucking threads and got nothing but shit from it. From you. I had a whole post typed about putting my down payment and shit for AW and starting an order but fuck it, I'm not gonna fucking say shit now. I'm sick of threads being derailed over a fucking faggot who has an issue with people talking like a euphoric weeb in a sticker thread. So fucking what I don't talk like a normie. I've been over this and I'm just done. This shit is too toxic, I don't blame BSG for fucking you cunts over. I was gonna take my money and time to make stickers for people who wanted them. Guess that's not enough, cause you need to talk like a normie to be in the "cool kids club" with all the anons. Fuck outta here
You know what dude, I've edited this to make it relevant in 3 fucking threads and got nothing but shit from it. From you.

Can someone make this into a slap for me? I'd gladly pay for it
Shes supposed to be positioned like this so she can translate into a proper slap.
Still waiting on superkawaii since Dec. 13th
Still waiting on SEB sticker from JDF Decals from 13th
A R R I V I N G | W H E N ?
tfw when BSG gets raped by /o/ shills who are butthurt at his superior selection and prices and attitude, yet every retailer suffers slow international shipping cos it's a fact of life and you fucking midwest neckbeards have never ordered anything outside murica before
I have to go back to college, I ordered before I came home for break, I'm gonna have to have the stickers shipped again from home across country
>still holding out on BSG
fuck man come on. Nigga I trusted you.
The wait time isn't what has me (and everyone else) convinced that BSG a scam. It's the total lack of communication. Nobody has heard a goddamn word from the guy and he has yet to make any kind of statement to the community as a whole. It's not like he's never posted here. If he's not scamming and wants to convince everyone that it's all good he knows exactly where to find us and yet nothing for MONTHS and counting. Christmas update in 9 days you guise. It's fucking January 10th.
A lot of these orders are ready to go, just need to finish more white decals for some of them. When the transfer tape arrives any orders done will be shipped out pronto.
in other words, retro with gold looks gorgeous.
I have no clue, an anon made it. I'd love to send these to him but nobody claimed it (inb4 300 emails saying they did)
I asked for a "SUPERCHARGED" but I never got it.
Uh, they are already on the site. It was a launch item.
It's metallic but not the extreme sparkle that denlin has for his vinyl, I'm looking into buying some rolls of that stuff.
>think I see my order but theres only one of each sticker that I wanted
Dont let me down NV
Uber/lyft driver here. Its for business use, as to make my car more identifiable for clients when I show up.
There are enough sellers on ebay that sell scores of uber/lyft decals though I'd rather check here first.
I suppose vinyl would do.
I really motherfucking bothers me how on those stickers the first word always fucking sticks out the bottom. Just why? Literally why? It's a very simple fix, and now looks like shit.
Maybe you're just blind and not autistic enough, but it's really obvious.
Finished fulfilling some orders for a couple anons including a gold shima heart.
I finally found the Miku picture I've been looking for so I made it out of glitter. It looks awesome with the light shining on it just right
I can cut some if you'd like. Just like a pink mustache for Lyft and the u logo for Uber? Email me at email@example.com and I can hook you up
