pic: FIRST Car decal



Finally got it done today. I think it looks great. If anyone else wants it done and needs the illustrator file just get in contact with me.
:slight_smile:

THAT SO COOL!
I WANT ONE.

That’s better than the bin stickers I have on my car.
:yikes:

Is that legal? I believe in the state of PA, you can’t have things on the back window that would distract the drivers vision. Nonetheless… VERY COOL!

/me wants one!

How Much Would You Be Willing To Sell Them For?

I would love to purchase one or two if possible.

I just had an awesome thought that you may want to take advantage of: Fundraiser! I’m sure you could sell a couple hundred of those things!

Thats really cool. I’d buy one.

I’m very doubtful that you can sell them. It’s a copyrighted logo. Did you ask FIRST for permission to use their logo in such a way?

It is illegal in most states to have something obstructing the window.

This would not be problem on a side window, I believe that in many states, rear (back seat) decals are allowed. In any case if FIRST did allow you to sell them to Benoit your team, I would be more than happy to buy a few, along with probably every FIRST-a-holic in the country.

This would be cool to put on the vehicles that teams use to haul their robots around…

You dont have to ask FIRST for permission to use that logo. If you read this document, this document and documents they posted many times in the past, you can use the logo as long as it is in the true form, which it is.

I think its awesome you made that logo Mike, keep spreadin the word of FIRST. :]

[edit] The part regarding the logo is in section 4 [/edit]

If you’re going to be selling a product with their logo on it, whether or not you make a profit, you’d better believe that you need their permission to do it.

If you’re using their logo while doing something illegal – covering up the rear window of a car – then I wouldn’t be surprised if they have something to say about it.

I seriously doubt that it would be considered an obstruction of view, especially since you can see right through the logo. Have you not ever seen cars (company cars, etc.) with logos on the rear window?

Cool logo, I say use it until someone says something…

Sorry for the cross post (1st time ever) but I’m really interested in this.

So, what did you actually make the logo on your car out of? Is it vinyl cut on one of those Roland Stika machines? If no, then what? If so, how did you get the four different colors to line up so well? Thanks.

I’d love to get the illustrator file if possible :slight_smile:

That’s different. :thumbsup:

What is different? Something can’t just be different, it has to be different from something else.

Different: Adj. - Unique, Individual

Made the Illustrator file then went to my local auto detailer and they took the file, and used one of their decal cutter machines and lined up the layers. Worked very well as you can see. I’m willing to post up the Illustrator file they used if someone can host it. (I would host it on the team 303 space but im redoing it so i dont know how long it would be up).

PS: here in jersey as long as the obstrucion isnt large its fine. Most of it is just see through so its not a problem.

Did they charge you to do that? If so, how much?

Cost me $40. He put in a couple hours of work because some of it had to be cut manually so it wasnt too bad of a price.
