Are we living a life that is safe from harm? Of course not, we never are. But that's not the right question. The question is, are we living a life that is worth the harm?

The manhole cover designs are great, would buy. Despite being a grown adult I bloody love stickers. I'd stick one on my drum set, one on my skateboard and put a couple in the big envelope of random stickers I have at home.

Awesome! Stay tuned. Once I'm off these 70hr weeks I'll actually order some.

Sooooo I asked Av and he said "Have fun".

There will be stickers.

Hit me with suggestions and your faves of what I've posted.

Also, here are the UER-specific ones I was holding on to as well as a re-collection of the originals. Let me know what you think!

// Sparro

1. Dark grey would be clear.


2. Same as above, dark grey would just be clear vinyl.


3.


4. These would be printed on clear backing with white or black ink.


5.


6.


7.


8.

New poster here, figured I'd throw my hat in the ring for ideas for shirts/stickers, although it's maybe a bit more on the nose than the other designs

I can change around colors and stuff, as well as feel free to do w/e you'd like with it to improve

(please excuse the poor job I did on the text)

white would be transparent

#2 would make a great bumper sticker because it's large and clear.

#4 is good but I feel needs something along the bottom curve so it's not top-heavy.

#5 is nice but the "Resource" is too close to the dots imo, and "Water Services" should be axed for the pure circle like the others.

#6 looks great but might be hard to read unless it's made big.

#7 same as #6.

#8 feels weirdly futuristic, or like looking down at the top of a globe. Not a fan of that one, though I think I recognize the manhole design you're going for.

Favorite manhole ones are 5 and 6. What sizes are you looking at these to be?

Did you just make a face/nose joke... yeah, you did, didn't you?

It's a little hard to read (figuratively, not text-wise) due to the spacing between the shapes. Took me a minute to get what it was. I can see the sort of typical "respirator required" sign being a fun one for this context I like it! Keep revising, maybe try a few other angles / compositions.

I want to print these about 3" in size. I could do a run of smaller 1.5" which are good for water bottles and smaller items, but bumper stickers, large cases, instrument cases etc. utilize the size of a ~3" sticker better.

#2: I agree!

#4: How about "nisi capere imaginibus relinquere solum uestigia"?

#5: Yes it is, it's not like that in the actual file I have on my computer. Thanks for the feedback on "water services" though!

I like how it plays that we pretend like construction or city or repair folk to infil locations... "Yeah, I'm with city works..." *wink wink*

#6: I love this one. Modeled after one of Toronto's real manhole covers, and I will definitely be printing it, and it will be legible, no problem. I printed 1.5" stickers for my business with 12pt font and it's just fine.

#7: Yeah, they'll have to look a little closer at this one.

#8: Hmmm! I never saw a globe 'til now. Though I suppose it looks like lat/long lines on a globe!

Yeah, close enough. S'far as I can tell, it's "Take only pictures, leave only footprints" or something along those lines. Unless you speak latin?

EDIT: Yeah, "nisi" translates as "unless". So I've corrected the text in option A below.

1. Option A


2. Option B (EDIT: excuse my incorrect latin text, pay attention only to fonts)

Thanks for the input!

Maybe we should just use your avatar for one of the stickers...

Any other concepts you'd like to share? Not just Aran but anybody as well

*blushes* Oh stop it, you.

I've actually been thinking, and I've come up with a few alternate mottos if anyone's interested. These are all taken from Google Translate, so if you do decide to use them you'll probably want to consult somebody who actually knows Latin.


Spernemus quo tempore oblitus (We tread where time forgot)

Exploratores profectum ab obstantia (Exploring the debris of progress)

Quæ reliquit post inventum civilization (Finding what civilization left behind)

Vellem autem esse apud primus horror movie ut moriatur (We'd be the first to die in a horror movie)


Three of those are serious suggestions and one is a joke. I'll let you figure out which is which.

With the man hole covers you said clear backing with white ink. Are you making them vinyl or are they just plain ink and plastic printed stickers?

Vinyl is plastic, no?

They would be printed on clear vinyl and either white or black ink. The sticker used would depend on the brightness of whatever you're sticking it to. If it's the bumper of your white car, you're obviously gonna want one with black ink.



Currently I'm struggling with how to collect payment for this. Av uses a business paypal because his info is not easily linked to AvBrand. I can't do that, though, because both my personal and business paypal names would clearly give away my identity.

Some places suggest Venmo, but I'm in Canada, Venmo is US only. Interac e-Transfer reveals my name when I accept the transfer. I also want it to be easy for people to pay for the stickers...

Thoughts?

PayPal?

There are two ways to take paypal payments:

1. Your email address and name.

2. Your business. I have two businesses, both of which have public websites with my name all over them.

Currently looking at Patreon. They allow aliases so long as you provide your real name to them on tax documents, which I'm okay with.

Why do you care if people on UER know your name? Does it matter? I highly doubt you have to worry about someone trying to track you down and kill you if you're selling stickers.

Weeellll... if someone got angry that I'd trespassed here and found flySparro on UER and was then able to just go to the "buy stickers" link and find out my real name, then I'd have a problem.

I'm not protective because I'm selling stickers, I'm protective because I trespass locally and am networked with many folks who do the same.

Vinyl as in have a clear plastic over top that you remove and just the "color" part of the sticker remains
