    I was thinking about ordering some FC stickers today while looking at my beer fridge whilst high. I have so many vape-related stickers on it and I thought it could do with a cool FC sticker as well.

    At first I was just gonna put this on it:[​IMG]

    But I thought that maybe something a little more thought out would be better. :hmm:

    My graphic design skills suck, so I was just gonna throw this idea out there to see if any of you talented FCers might be interested in making a cool design that I can use to print up stickers.

    Feel free to post ideas in this thread or you can always PM me instead.

    I plan on just ordering a few hundred to give away to anyone who wants one.

    Any ideas or input is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    :peace:

    I like that. I like the idea of using the middle finger. I'm not sure that the burning ash on the middle finger would come out well in a lo res image though.

    I was thinking of a sign like this with a middle finger where the diagonal red line is.

    Great initiative Stu!

    The middle finger and NO .... circle are cool , I'm also thinking a more discrete logo or meaning could make the stickers more user friendly , for example id replace my current Vape case sticker with a FC sticker , lol . Or stick it on the otherside :D Both are discrete , hence don't attract too much attraction when out and about and vaping!

    Eitherway, I'd find a use for one !

    Vape on!

    Assuming you don’t want to go in @P.A.M. ’s more subtle suggestion, I’d try a thicker line through the fire with the FuckCombustion text inside it, and I might go with a joint or something more like a No Smoking sign instead of the fire.

    If no one else wants to, I might be able to put that together. Or if you already got something printed I’d like to get ahold of one (or more)! :)

    My suggestion might make the line too thick or the text too small by the way, so other options would still be good.

    The canvas is still blank, so feel free to mock something up for sure. I'd love to see ideas posted in this thread but so far it's been mostly crickets so your input brings joy to my heart.:)

    @Stu I really like the original logo you posted. Maybe 2 versions.
    But I also like the middle finger. Maybe tattoo fuckcumbustion on the hand. Fuck across the knuckles combustion down the finger. Im high. Ha

    I wish I were more artistically inclined.

    I can't wait to see what y'all come up with!

    Hey @Stu My old Mac Pro machine with all the graphics software shat the bed a while back or I’d have already volunteered. I haven’t done graphics professionally in ages but this should be easy-peasy! I can recreate the classic FC or reproduce whatever else you freaks can dream up.

    I just got a new desktop and only then found out that Adobe no longer sells their Creative Suite outright but “rents” it via monthly subscription. I haven’t been keeping up with tech so this was news to me and I’m sure it generates more profit than selling it once. But I think it sucks! I was about to cave and sign up when my wife said she can get a much better deal when the new school year starts. So if nobody else has stepped in to help, I can certainly knock this task out in September and provide the files to online printer of your choice. I know a couple...

    So please everyone, if you have any ideas for a killer FC sticker: sketch, doodle or draw them and share here or you can send it directly to me* if you can’t/don’t want to upload them. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: DM for email

    @pxl_jockey So if we draw something on paper, then take a photo or scan and post or DM it, you can translate it somehow to a digital format?

    Yes I can, @TheThriftDrifter that’s what I meant, just didn’t say it very well. :tup: Thank you! You don’t even have to draw it, you can find an image and then describe your idea or what you wanna change about it, like Stu did with the no open flame sign above. Then I’ll just use a digital tablet and software to create it as a vector image in whatever format the printer people have specified.

    Now I’m not saying that I’ll do that for every idea that’s submitted, just the one or two images that become the official FC stickers. You guys will have to decide on which ones, I’m just the monkey with a pencil. :D


    @Stu wait... what?! Volunteer for what?!! ;)

    Hope it's not too "explicitly graphic"

    That's good. You spent some time on that. Clever trick with the on/off symbol and the lower line in the "F" with the "c".

    Thanks, @OldNewbie , but not much time put in, one of those shower ideas. Always liked that universal power symbol, it looks so happy, so turned on

    @OldNewbie , thanks for the link, fun reading about those corporate logos

    By the way, it spells out he word FUCK. F and C are positive, the U is negative space within the power symbol, and the K is the large negative space at left

    Lots of great entries. I don't mean to dis anyone's entries.

    My :2c: is I've always liked the original FC logo at the top of the site's homepage. It's the logo most associated with the FC IMHO. Maybe a middle finger underneath it?

    Fuck Fire , Fuck Flames, fuck middle finger.....

    either Fuck a la Choo Choo or the OG Logo. . “Fuck combustion” would be more discreet then a middle finger imho

    the middle finger seems a popular choice , I personally don’t get a chub nor get offended by it . I find it blah or quite neutral on it . I know I wouldn’t walk around with it visible . Id use it but probably somewhere not many people would see it .

    Something like @ChooChooCharlie creation , I’d walk around with it visible , should another member see me , odds are they would spot / recognize it and approach .

    I know the man behind the site isn’t around much , not sure mods have the power to even change or altar webpage logo (should it ever come to a change , not saying let’s change it ... )

    Either way , not to rush a selection but this is starting the feel like the football pool thread :rofl:
