BNA Stickers for Everyone

Postby AUbicycles » Tue Dec 04, 2012 9:16 pm

Years ago we got some BNA stickers made up promoting the forum. I have always wanted to get more made up - better quality weather resistance stickers though the print costs are often prohibitive.

I am now looking into this again and would like to know:

1. What would you use it for / What would you do with it?
2. Would you stick one on your bike (if it looked good)?
3. What exactly should be on the sticker?
4. How many would you want?

For members with a lot of posts, I would happily post out stickers. For new members I would do a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Look forward to your feedback.

Yes (if it looked good) I would stick it on my bike. It would be a good way of meeting/identifying other BNA members you may see during your rides

Hi,
If they looked good one on the car, not sure if a car type sticker would suit a bike though?

I know a guy who's a designer who'd be able to knock up some stickers really quickly. He runs a website, or something. :D

Aside from that, I would love one of those European oval style stickers with BNA on it in big letters with bicycles.net.au around the outside in small print. For the car, not the bike.

What would be nifty, but I would never buy, is a "My Family" set of bikes, e.g. road (race), road (commute), road (ss), track, touring etc. With the number of bikes at home (including the kid's bikes), I'd fill the rear window.

The old BNA sticker is pretty good and it sits nicely on the downtube where a bike shop sticker would normally be put. Something that size would be nice. Put what you want on it, I'll take one for each bike, and I'd pay for them.

I'd bang one on the car if I had one. Possibly on the bike, but not a fan of putting stuff on it.

+1 for me too - happy to buy stickers & pay postage - don't like to put things on the bike though.

I wonder if we can put the stickers in 'show bags' - I sometimes get stuff from the City of Sydney when they do bike check ups and the like, or after a charity ride/event. Maybe we can do a Get Kony style campaign and sticker the whole town?? Stick them onto vehicles that shave us? Prefer the stickers you just can't get off.

This might be a quantum leap from a humble sticker but I want a super cool (read Euro Cool) Musette bag for my commutes. Used a City of Sydney one for over a year and it is starting to rip a bit. My mother-in-law made one out of an old table cloth but it does not have the 'Euro cool' factor that I require stamped all over it.

So in short why not a BNA Musette bag?

I'd put one on the bike chain stay or the seat tube plus one in the back window of the car. I'd put one on my laptop and back of the mobile phone.

I'd put one on the car.
Depending on size, I'd likely put one on the bike too. If I can put a 2cm square kids pirate sticker on the bike (courtesy of the young fella) then I'd put a BNA one on too.

Perhaps plain and easily is the way to go.

I'm thinking having "BNA" in a front similar to Strava on a clear background.
Whaddaya reckon?

This has been sleeping and I am now moving forward on this. Thanks Sydguy for a printer recommendation.

Potentially considering two stickers and the problem has been getting a killer design - however this is overthinking it all so I am going back to basics.
The aim is weatherproof vinyl stickers - transparent so you just have the graphic/text and essentially can suit bikes with different colours if you choose to put it on your bike.

The second version is a little clunky - while it is stunning on the BNA Cycling Kit - as a sticker it isn't as elegant so there are options such as using a less-readable but elegant calligraphic style font.

While we have some good ideas such as 'learn, share, love cycling' and 'cycling is in my BNA' - I am keen to get the recognisable cyclist traffic sign in and keep it compact enough.

Happy for feedback and ideas.

I'd prefer a variation of the header design myself.

I'd put one on the seat tube and even the car. If just a logo then on the head tube.

In the all weather format, it looks like there is a limit to two colours, this affects the possibilities however means it can be a see-through sticker, so without a solid white background and white border which would look unsightly on a nice bike.

The other option is defining a shape and a suitable background colour for a full colour printed sticker - it is an idea however would have the effect of being a sticker on the bike rather than a graphic which seems more integrated.

If it's got to be two colours then black and yellow as for the sign.
If possible, text options in both colours to allow for readability on different frame colours.

As to the BNA font, do you still have the retro style that is used under the BNA cycling cap peaks?

I still have this graphic - because of the format of this which I created specifically for the caps, it doesn't seem as transferable as the two other fonts I use.

Current idea. Sticker 1 is subtle and elegant and suited to suit the top tube of the bike - in cyan (blue) with transparent background.

Image

Sticker 2 (3 ideas) has a dark background and no tranparency, could fit the seat tube.
