Design the newest EM sticker, win an EM shirt!

Hey all -

It's easy to see that we need a new sticker. Something that highlight the kick-butt MPG we get and the site's contribution to it. Darin and I are busy, and though we could cram in some extra design time, the way I see it, this is your site too. What do you want? How would you do it? Help us all out by submitting some JPEGs with designs, and whoever has their stickers picked will win a few stickers (when they're made) and an EcoModder shirt as a thank you for contributing to the community.

Some rules:
- The sticker needs to be able to fit into a standard envelope.
- Keep it two-tone, or at least low on the color scale, since color costs money and we can't afford to lose tooooo much money.
- Feel comfortable letting the design become ours when you win.

But other than that, go wild. Here's the thought for what I'd enter:
- A die cut, white sticker, 3x8
- Something like “I get … MPG” where you insert the post box number stickers in accordance with your wicked good FE. Then the old “ecomodder.com” in smallerness on the bottom.

Here are my ideas.
I modified the 2nd jpg from HyperMiler, so only the unmodified part is of quality ;-)

The first one is what I like : a simple example that people can easily remember.

The second one is something that may make people wondering about what they read.

My 2 Euro-cents,

Denis.

Need something with interest, mystery and patriotism. I can't do the sticker part but here's the line if someone want's to incorporate it with graphics.

Energy independace one gallon at a time.

I'm not a big fan of the witty saying type of bumper sticker. I would prefer one that would be very simple; with the white E-clip/green wrench logo and 'ecomodder' in the aforementioned neuropol font. Perhaps add ".com" so they know where to find us. Under that put the 'Wrench smart - drive smarter - save fuel' tag line. Keep It Simple, SVOboy.

what is wit to some is often offensive to others, it has to be done carefully

maybe something to win that Hummer driver over that feels trapped
similar to SVOboy:

I get ___ % better than EPA rating
you can too - no matter what you drive

Ecomodder.com


I also am fond of my signature statement:

Start where you are - Use what you have - Do what you can.
Ecomodder.com


I think it is attributed to Arther Ash - if it matters

BTW - I have never seen the old sticker
how do you get one
