The price is for printing two colors. It shouldnt matter what the 2 colors say or look like. So a photo or texture has no bearing. I imagine you would give them your Photoshop file. The only thing that might make a difference is if the background was printed a color and there was bleed involved. Thats when color runs off the edges so it must be printed on slightly larger paper to allow for trimming. This is old school and referred to printing ink. Nowadays with laser copiers they might be able to print to the edge with no difficulty. Not sure about that.
Why not go to a stationery store and buy boxes of avery labels the size you need and print your own. I think 80 cents for a two color label is a bit steep.

its vinyl, so avery stickers have nothing on these, they are gong to be put on paintball hoppers, bottom of skateboards, skate helmets and what not, so they kind of need to be able to take a beating.

Ok vinyl is a whole different kettle of fish. Are they asking you to supply vector art?

I'd get rid of the camera and choose something that's relevant to sports or automobiles - your audience. Sell to what interests them, not what interests you.

Red is better but the layout is too jumbled. I'd also keep the design further from the edge so when the stickers start to peel and/or get damaged you don't lose anything important (especially the contact details) from them.

Also, ditch the email address and get a web address where you can showcase your work. You can put an email link from there.

I always hesitate to post anything in pbjunkiee's thread - or answer to any post he may type in my own threads - because I never know what he really is talking about! I am always wondering if he speaks / types English or if he is just plain stubborn to write in 'code' so only a handful of people understand what he means...? This?

Really, I am trying hard but I just cannot understand the meaning of "see, canda a picture..." Do you?

And I always thought that a bulletin board is an online discussion site where good communication is important to exchange ideas for the good of everybody. How wrong I was...

Don't get mad. Its a new slang Walter. We should begin a pbjunkiee's Glossary:

win: a nice picture, well framed and perfectly exposed. I like the pp also.
this: a good demonstration of what you are saying. Totally agree with you.
cand da: God knows...

I quickly adopted the young slang with the hope of contacting some beautiful young chicks, but nothing happened yet. I'll keep you informed. Have a nice day. Win this!

Kids wear ball caps on their heads like Gomer the Goof, their pants down below their ass. Still cant figure out how they keep them from hitting the ground. And they are completely illiterate. I dont think they deserve the world after we leave. I think we should take it with us.
