Who can make this into a heavy-duty bumper sticker?


"YOU CAN'T TRUST REPUBLICANS
With your Money, your Safety or your FREEDOM!"


Large, like 16-20 inches long. Maybe six to eight inches high. Bold colors like red, blue, black, white (shades, I know) etc.

Something that can be easily seen. Something that will stand up to abuse by cowardly pukes.

Anyone?

2. And a twist on that one......
I trusted Republicans with my money, my safety and my freedom and I have neither. Grammatical errors optional, taxes due at signing, invalid in some states, your mileage may vary.

5. check out the cafe-press website and click on
"make your own stuff" and then "prints and cards".
I haven't tried it myself, but they might be able to make stickers for you.
Let me know if it works.

6. I love to make bumper stickers...art is relaxing...
Give me a couple of hours and I'll have something after dinner tonight.

As a matter of fact, anyone that wants a custom artwork for bumperstickers, just e-mail me.

I really enjoy doing graphics, and it gets my frustration off my chest, also!

11. Yes...the stamps are my design.
I've gotten the M-Peach-W stamp printed as real stamps for postage:



You can get a sheet of them here: http://tinyurl.com/lmrek

10. First draft...That was fun!

Let me know if you have a better idea for the design:



You can get the bumper sticker here in 4mil vinyl using water and UV resistant inks:

Or, the design is free to reprint for anyone here at DU.

I put up a very high resolution version for download here (remove the spaces to use the link):

Enjoy!

(This is fun!)

15. That looks Great
You find it fun to do, I envy that. I'd be better of pounding my head on the wall aside from creating something of value like that.

16. I've always enjoyed layout and graphics...
...and have college classes that go unused in my current profession.

It really is enjoyable to do graphics, you can lose yourself in composing design.

Sometimes, you even have something half-okay for your efforts. :)

14. We could also print these out and put them in books like bookmarks...
...at the library...in free newspapers...wherever.

Viral grassroots marketing.

I'm trying to get my website up and offer political designs via the Creative Commons copyright so that they are free to use (as long as they aren't changed to be anti-Democratic!)



Maybe I'll have most of it up over the weekend. :)
