SOUTH EAST uses stick-ons for their vehicles. I've ordeed some magnetic ones from Vista Print
http://www.vistaprint.co.uk/vp/car_d...0%3a53+PM&rd=2
to see how they look.
Given that sourcing, negotiating discounts etc is possibly under the national umbrella, is this something 'national' should do?
There's many regions and I'm pretty sure that there are many folk like me that don't want graphics stuck on their vehicles, but a removable magnetic one would be ideal

Patrick

What type of stickers were you thinking of for the doors?

We have now ordered the standard National identifier stickers:



These are 40mm x 250mm and will be available in both external vinyl and internal "cling" types.

Should be with us in the next week or so.

Locally we have sourced some Hertfordshire logos, like the ones I use on magnetic backing on my doors (I bought a roll of magnetic film of eBay quite cheaply):

Can one buy magnetic aluminium to go with the signs?

Also known as galvanised steel

'... steel'.
No, I hadn't realised that product degradation had gone so far.

Product degradation?

I think not, the new doors are far superior to the self destructing ones that were fitted for the previous 18 years

Whatever, taking the subject further doesn't fit in this topic, now we have established that magnetic labels don't suit those of us whose vehicles have aluminium bodyshells.

Fine. However, many of us do have vehicles that can use magnetic labels, and want them to avoid using stick-on graphics, The question was really to do with whether we as a local group should order, or should we get from the national group. I'm sure we'd be happy to follow Tony's lead here.

But if there is anyone who wants magnetic backing for stickers, I got mine from here:
