Offtopic: Want to create some stickers...

I wanted to create some Euro oval stickers for an event. Similar to the "got mud?", or "got moab?" type stickers. However I don't need a large quantity. Can anyone suggest a place to do this?

I was attempting to make my own via the cafepress shop, but design skills and software are seriously lacking.

Suggestions please...

The sticker quality of the CafePress ones SUCK. Last year at this time I made some test stickers of a new D-90 Source oval sticker. Its hard to get it aligned right if you want a black border and all mine got printed off center. Not too mention, the sticker quality was lousy.

Dave, I'd go with Gord in Toronto. Exchange is great for you.
BUT remember, graphics shops make money on customer changes. Have your design SET IN YOUR HEAD. Let them transfer that to paper and listen to them upfront. Usually (a very general statement), graphic time by a shop on the computer will run $30 - $100 an hour.
Good luck, oh and I may use the Got Mud as a CA license plate one day. Either that or IMSTUCK.

Thanks guys for your input. Glad to hear about the Cafepress stuff. At least I didn't waste any time on it. Gord, I'll PM you.

Well.. it was not a complete waste using them. The advantage was that I only ordered 2 stickers, and when I complained about how bad the quality was, the credited me back the costs.

It was a shame because I wanted to start offering new stickers for the site but I didn't want to have to commit to buying 4000000 of them.

Lightbulb Another Option

Dave,

Another option is Thomas Dahbura, a fellow Rovernut in the Yahoo Phillyrovers group. He either owns or works for a label design/production company. His website is www.hublabels.com and you can email him at thomasd@hublabels.com.

Hey Gord - OK I'm wearing glasses now. Do not ask me how, but i could swear your location was listed as Toronto. Please accept my apologies. On the other side - cool. For me, BC is far better than Toronto.
