mds141 old chap; yes I am. :) Never made me rich but there are worse ways to earn a (sort of ) living. :)

And hoodies??? Heavens! I'm 50 this year. More like polo shirts and windcheaters :lol:

@richardd1652

Full steam ahead. If I get paid by Macmillan.

I have no exact cost for these stickers' manufacture/delivery - I will check. Do you reckon a run of 50-100 of each would be OK?

''50-100 of each'' I think may be far too many, I don't want to put a dampner on your enthusiasm but I wouldn't like to see you stuck with a load of stickers you had personally forked out for either. Although several members have expressed an interest there are also those who still have the original ones they may be happy with. When Tim kindly had the engine bay sticker sets made up he ordered in batches of ten and if I'm not mistaken was left with at least one set for a while so selling 200????

That was the Sicillian Shiraz addling my brain. I'll consider 20 of each. There is an economy of scale obviously, but you're right...

I'll sell them initially to members and then spares will go on eBay.

a big BX CLUB in ya face jobbie
Sounds good Sir - I can use 3 right now. If you order a batch of 50 I'd guess the cost comes down (over a batch of say 10) which is good - but if you have a load left after people have bought what they need then I'm happy to buy say half of those to share the outlay with you.

Nice accent BTW :D
*It is drawn to match the cut of the Citroën font as used in the contemporary logotypes. the font itself is not available (even though it's out of date now).
Do you know the font's name Phil ? I'm still using Ulead 4.0 (because it does everything I need to do unless it's a .gif in which case I drag it into PicturePubisher) so that font may be embedded in there - if so you're welcome to a copy. If it's an imported font I've no idea how to extract it but I'm sure someone will tell me :-)

The original BXC stickers were a batch of 100 (minimum order).
It took me 7 years to get rid of them, and that included random acts of stuffing under BX wiper blades I saw in the street.

And that would be a much harder task today!

Sadly not, I sold my very very reliable and rust free TGD to buy an utterly nutterly air conned TZD-T which was frighteningly temperamental and did weird things.
I sold that and bought a motorbike instead.

I like 'em all - I love stickers!! :D I thought the third one down was the best (the 'BX CLUB' one) but they all look good. When will they be ready?
