If the sticker is only the letters, it should work more or less. Otherwise it wont. I've tried this before.

Yep, it's only letters. But I'm not sure how much vinyl cling surface would be left as the letters take up a good amount of the area.

cut the red letters in reverse so the sticky part is what you read, then stick them to the back of a clear vinyl cling. It should work if you don't get any bubbles in it.

or for that matter - just cut the red stickers in reverse and put them on the inside of the window - it won't be vinyl cling, but you wont mess it up when you wash the windows.

I should've made the stickers so they stick on the inside of the window. Too bad there's no way to reverse the ones that are already available.

Samir, do you make these stickers or have someone make them for you? I need an inside window sticker made. What image format is needed? I have the JPEG on my computer.

I had a large batch of these made in 2005/2006 by Metro Sign and Graphics when the first smaller batch sold out quickly. (I was hoping the second batch would sell out just as quickly, but instead I've been trying to recoup the almost $1000 invested ever since the run.) The image format most printers need is a vector format. The font is sofachrome and can be found readily online. I believe JayMack also has the equipment to make these. I think I also know a few others with this equipment too.

There is, but the cost is significantly higher. (2-5x more). But if you want to make a one-off for yourself, you have my blessing. I know it will look great.

What size/style are you thinking? The ones I have are pretty good for RC cars, unless you want them to be smaller.

Samir, I have the means of printing up various single/dual color vinyl decals. If you would like, and I can get permission from you and you can send me a logo over, I can have some drafted and then if you like what you see we can go from there.

Let me know! You can have official decals if it's cool.

That's awesome! Although I still have quite a few from my previous run. I need to get rid of these before I think of doing it again.

Find me at the East Limestone Show or at the Autocross this weekend if you're out and I'm better (watch the attending list for my name). Or just let me know a time and place to meet. I haven't had a chance to see the new beauty.

The easiest way will be if I'm at an event with my cameras. I keep a full supply with me, although certain colors are already out of stock.

The other way would be to order them here, and I drop them in the mail to you.

I just checked and I still have red. They would look awesome on the EVO as the color would match pretty close.
