In the style of the OEM anni badge


To be displayed on the fuse box door.


A uk-mkivs members plaque, perhaps engraved with the users forum name and model information


I'm sure most small local trophy shops could make these?


Any thoughts?


Jon

We could probably do our own if we stuck to the same format, and made the link a clicky.


Might send off for one and see how it comes back

Woh there pardner' - sounds like a great idea, but before you go running off getting prices I think you'll need to ascertain a few things first. Namely can you use the site name and logo without permission [;)]


Also, if it's going to be done I'll want it done right - not some half baked effort with stock fonts that is going to look like a £10 darts trophy plaque. The site logo text/font and colours need to be part of it. Similar to the Anniversary plaque. That will cost to produce. IIRC the Anniversary plaques cost about £60 each to be produced, which was based on a run of 1800. Are you really looking at asking folks to pay that much for a plaque?


What may be a better idea is show plates, like what I had on the Bora yesterday at Harewood. They're outwardly facing and instantly identify you and the car.


Don't mean to shoot you down on this but experience has shown that with things like this it may seem a like a great idea, but actually getting people to cough up the dosh is another thing [whistle]

Sadly I don't have the time to investigate something like this but I'm just trying to pass on the experience I've had.


By all means see if it's possible which is what I was trying to get across.


I did mention show number plates as being an alternative and something companies can and will produce on a per person basis. They're also not that cheap and don't require origination for design.

Re: The Members Plaque


Think it would be better option if the cost was kept as low as possible,


Anyone got any experience in this area?


Of course, I wont go ahead with anything without the relevant permissions for use of forum names, logos etc.


Just getting info together at the minute

Seems to be decent quality from the pics.


I say make the call... there appears to be quite a lot of interest. Just best maybe checking peoples opinion on the £30 etc.


What would be the layout on the plaque though?


Ukmkivs logo (Should tabs give the go ahead)
username
car model information etc
date joined the forum < ?


Not sure how many lines of readable text can be fitted onto the plaque... Dont want it looking too cramped.

How about something simple like the uk-mkivs.net (and the like) logo.


The TT Owners Club forum have a simple TTOC badge that a lot have on their rear hatch. Looks pretty smart and OEM too [Y]

 oooh choices choices lol


like both of those.


with the plaque it may be better if we had membership number if tabs can give us those too?


but the rear badge idea like the TTOC is pretty nice too, maybe that could be an idea separate anyway??
