CAR BADGE - the old, the new - but which?

Postby Bob_H » Tue Feb 04, 2014 10:14 am

Our stock of car grille badges is down to single figures.

The previous supplier has raised prices and won't offer a discount for a re-order. It might be a good time to try a new design. But which do you prefer:

No 2 Bob, but would prefer it without the kukris. Don't think they add to it, regardless of past history, they make it too "busy" in my opinion.

I don't disagree about the Kukris - but surprising number of people ask for them if they're left out.

Hi Bob
No 6 is getting to close to being a Sqn badge. Next thing you will be asked is . You have done one for B.Sqn how about one on a red / blue / black (you wouldent see much of the hawk) background for my Sqn.
