K who's got the WAT sticker in the EUROSPORT?
So I got a reply from AWStickers.
He will ship out stickers by the end of this week or early next week. I will be getting the following:
50 of Akina Bred in Regular Gloss Vinyl
50 of Doki Doki Pantsu STRIPES in Oil Chrome Vinyl
50 of Night Shift Gradient in Chrome Vinyl
50 of Night Shift v3 in Regular Gloss
50 of Skid City in Super Silver Sparkle Vinyl
50 of Tokyo City in Super Silver Sparkle Vinyl
50 of the Good Luck Club in Regular Gloss
In the process of designing a site. I'm thinking around the lines of dankcarme.me or shitboxme.me
Probably this one and the other one I'll post
The thing is, at the end of the day this is a general for people who also want to show off their sticker sites. I feel it'd be pretty skewed if I made an asg site.
Hey Yummy, I finally sent the file, it's also pic related. Hopefully, it prints well.
I'm not sure about pricing yet.
Pricing will depend entirely on how much it costs to ship over to me. I think shipping will be 3.00 USD flat
Pic related cost $8.00 USD shipping. Guy's a fucking faggot.
I'll get more soon. Just gauging interest.
Pic related was postage cost
Canadian shipping is the same as every other international shipping with the USPS.
$1.20 if it's under 1 oz and letter sized, $2.38 if any dimension is over 6-1/8" but also under 1 oz, and it gets WAY more expensive if you go over 1 oz for both.
Also be sure to write "AIR MAIL" somewhere on your envelope nice and big, it makes it go faster.
Having an asg site where you make our dank memes reality is pretty cool, as long as you do not pass all the designs as your own. It really does not even impede the work of people who really put work into it. They can still promote themselves through the general.
ofc im a dank memer not someone who is actually good at this shit
Nice choice senpai.
I had one similar and then I realized how much like the cardrugs sticker it was.
Hey, it could be total BS but it's what I was told. Something about basically at the end of the day when all the shit's in the big outgoing letters bin, a big "AIR MAIL" on the envelope lets the worker kick it over to the international side of things.
Makes sense, dunno how much of a difference it makes, but I do it anyways. Hell, if it makes someone's job easier it's <5 seconds of my time, so why not.
>"It's the 12th, BSG should have updated by now"
I just want to get some SEB stickers for 50% off and then complain about not getting them for a year.
I was not so quick on the draw this time, but here's the OC summary for /osg/ 44.
Order from trolly, mine came eventually, with some bonus WATs
Just trying to recognize. Of course when it's just one dude it kinda just looks like shilling. Good or bad I'm just proud that people in here are willing to make shit and then put that shit out there for us to enjoy (or not).
I sent him all my designs and this is the one he is using I believe (I named it V3 because I changed the final sticker 3 times lol)
Shit, sorry man. Of course I go to a movie when stuff starts happening. I don't know why it didn't work but I changed the payment options so it should work. If anyone still has trouble with it let me know and I'll look into why it isn't working
I got it! Thanks for sending it. I'll be cutting it soon
I think that's a good sticker anon. Though that isn't something I could do since I can't print. But maybe in the future...
Also, thanks for adding me to the OP, OP. I'll be sure to buy lots of stickers from you!
this is the most frustrating thing I've worked on so far. Everyone who ordered these know each one is a huge labor of love. I've gone through 6 of these to get to these two and it takes like 20 minutes to do one.
Already gotcha covered on this one homie.
You might like this toho tires sticker I made for some anon eons ago, you can have it since you have a toho section
It's pretty good, I looked at bigcartel and while it is cheaper it had stuff I didn't like, such as item limits and limited customization. Shopify basic is the same monthly price as bigcartel platinum (or whatever their highest tier is) but you get a bit more freedom. They also have their own payment processing which doesn't totally murder you with fees.
Yeah, outlines are more of a printed vinyl type of thing vs just straight up die-cut colors. Doing an outline die-cut out of white vinyl to go under the regular color would be a seriously tough job, if you misaligned the kanji even slightly it would look like ass.
Semi related Kantai story: It's funny, I went through a whole crapload of setup and stuff to make good replicas of every possible ship type logo in the game (you'll mix and match, buy the proper background crest and then a type kanji and apply them together) and a bunch of people were all like "oh man I'm so hype I'm totally gonna buy so many!" and then when I release them... crickets. It's one of my slowest sellers. Guess some people don't truly love their shipdaughters.
(As an aside I can also do the ship name kanjis as custom jobs too, I just can't really feasibly make every damn ship name a product on-site without it getting super cluttered.)
>They also have their own payment processing which doesn't totally murder you with fees.
I noticed the fees, bigcartel doesn't have any to begin with but that's because it goes through paypal. Looks like it's actually cheaper than paypal's fees. Did you hook it up to your bank account then?
It's hard because there's no real way to line up the vinyl. The process would be to cut out the kanji, then cut the outline, after weeding the kanji you would use transfer tape to put it on top of the kanji outlines, however the problem is aligning it perfectly because there's no do-overs with vinyl. Replacement is very difficult since removing vinyl is destructive.
watch this video
Basically, you put a box around your design and two boxes on either corner of the top. Then you copy paste the design and delete the parts that aren't in the layer you want. Do that for as many layers as you want. Then put it in your cutting software and make sure you set all the sizes the same.
That's how I do all my shimashit at least. It's almost impossible to get it 100% perfect, but you can get it to where it's not noticable
>since removing vinyl is destructive.
Thats why I was thinking wet application might be a bit easier, since you could slide it around until it is lined up as best as you could get it, then gently squeegee out your soap water solution.
Yeah I was thinking that if you used an outline box like with the no promises decal it would be significantly easier, but it seems like something that'll be a pain in the ass either way.
The RT Katagiri SV slap is mistagged then. I think I requested it, Backyard Tuners did the initial layout, it was then cleaned up by an Anon, and hasn't been printed/cut yet. I hope it gets printed eventually though. It's kinda sexy.
Layered vinyl just isn't easy. and when you do stuff like that yuru yuri logo I sent you, you end up wasting a lot of vinyl because you cut 3 little stars for a big sticker yet you still have to cut it inside the box.
Layered looks pretty good though so I feel like it's worth it
Not sure, I've done it before for graphics kits on motocross race bikes, and the riders wear through the stickers before they begin to even peel off. I think they are still fine after 2-3 years but I haven't taken a look at them for a while. The adhesive used might be designed for wet application, but I'm not sure.
Should the sticker designs not inprint be tagged as "not_in_print" or something similar?
yeah it looks hella good. It's my favorite kind of sticker.
With my experience with graphics stuff so far it has to explicitly say it's meant for a certain application otherwise it won't work.
Yeah, I think we should stick with "not_in_print"
No it's a good idea to tag it anyways. I'd like to find things to print and a single tag is easier than removing a bunch of different ones. I'm sure if we get more printers they would probably appreciate that tag too. boorus are usually tag crazy anyways.
What's the point? If I want to upload stuff, how should I tag them if I'm a nobody? Should I upload 300dpi files there, or just previews? Should I upload stuff that's already in production, or what?
This came out looking beautiful.
just tag the artist as "anonymous" that shouldn't be too hard.
If you upload previews, tag them as such, if you upload finals tag them "final", like there's a tag system for a reason.
>When you Buyer protection BSG
It feels so fucking good, I hope he gets raped by all the muslims in his shithole country.
>BSG can steal them
oh no, almost like what already happened.
Also it's not grey, it's white/black layered. The transfer tape is on top of it which is why it looks textured.
It was me. Had to redo it because the background is actually a SUPER rare image. Actually two separate images that took a lot of work to combine into one and make it look seamless. Just had to use it.
So I had an idea for die cut decals while enjoying my supper. I could use a similar style for a brand of ramen, but use different color for different flavors. Each set of similar styled packaging could be a different series.
The Ramen Collection.
>That small text
But the idea is solid. It would probably look printed too. Just get it digitized.
Sticker culture fascinates me but is it haram to sticker up a muscle?
Do I have to stay tasteful and keep the weeb to a minimum?
In the style of the SHIMA HUNTER one where it's the ramen wavy yellow instead of blue striped.
roast chicken is such an improvement over chicken
All orders with stickers, not vinyl cut have shipped.
Orders with vinyl cuts are mostly shipped, you will find out in an hour if yours haven't.
I'm planning on going full hellaflush JDM drift missile on my TBird to piss people off.
Dunno if this is any good, the Japanese on it is probably shit too.
I probably would have figured that out myself if I loaded it up into photoshop but I've been real busy putting together these orders. I only have 5 orders left to ship.
BS, CS, SM, MI, TW I still need to cut some of the decals you ordered but it will be shipped tonight.
Whoops I used the wrong color for the background
rough draft, it's a pun on the fact all JDM cars have a speeding warning chime when you hit 100 km/h (80 km/h on Kei cars)
sorry if you dont like them
just trying stuff out
>class mate from high school that's a complete imbecile when it comes to art started his design company

The world sucks.
>work a double shift because the flaky kid on the work crew called in sick (3pm-7am)
>leave work, ready to go sleep and come back to work at 3pm
>one of the back tires on the truck fails
>limp two miles to the closest gas station because fuck changing a tire on the side of a narrow country road at daybreak
>find out the previous owner took all the jack equipment
>eating breakfast at Burger King waiting for my r/o/ommate to pick me up in my car
Who do I talk to about getting a do-over of the last 24 hours?
FUCK thats good.
I like that sooo much better than indestructible
>BT has never had a big kiss on the cheek and a motherly hug
fuc ramen its about soba
Waiting for enough time to pass so that people can't claim back on their paypal orders? I know some already have but I would imagine quite a few haven't. Myself included. Or would his paypal be completely fucked from the claim backs already made? I have no idea.
I still believe he's genuine and just incompetent/ very unlucky. We'll see eventually. Possibly.
I googled the tracking number and this is what I got.
Well I think there's officially too much OC now for a summary, so I'm glad the booru exists. But shout out to Denlin for getting his shit out quicker. 4 days for this one.
I hope his dumb ass gets chewed out here because an explanation doesn't hold any fucking water when it's months overdue, hasn't talked to a single person, and yet still had time to fuck up 2 updates.
most of the underage retards here will probably still cheer him on
He either replies or you get your money back and he gets a mark on his PayPal its win win for you. If he still hasn't replied you can escalate to PayPal they will side with the buyer especially if the seller never even responded.
I see it now, shouldn't have used google translate.
That's not what I meant
speaking of teh fast master
Notori Vinyl is a god
>shit u fast nigga
I managed to place an order when NV put up their site for a minute or two.
I wasn't serious.
Looks much better.
Yeah I didn't mean to actually do it. You'd need a better source than a card.
Ah gotcha. Either way, I like.
It's on you, man. If you want to make something of your art, make it happen.
Oh definitely. Very nice.
I'll admit my powerlevel is not max in terms of moonrunes, but I'm pretty sure the "は" particle makes it more like "normies ARE dead" , not "die normies!"
"riajyu, shine!" would be a more colloquial way to say it. I think.
I think the same thing most times. Haha.
Also resuming work on this VH slap, Trying to think what else I could do with it. I need to get Nanako's image cropped a little bit better. Anyone else have ideas for it?
Something tells me the reason why BSG has been out of it is because he got his balls literally busted by British intelligence because of the packaging.
Pfffft, that shitty drawing is pretty much public domain imo, if you want to print it, print it. Just don't undercut drastically or go the completely other direction and jew out like nevercontent.
Perhaps offer a different style or maybe material? Not sure if notori has holo or slick or other out-there sheets.
K, well obviously 2ch is the one to trust on that one versus me. Like I said my moonrunes aren't top notch, It just seemed very google translate-y to me at first glance. Then again, slang stuff is extra confusing for gaijin.
