I'm not ready for any yet but it's best to be prepared so any info would be very much appreciated.



Is there a standard sticker for the logo ie colours / size?



Do individual teams get their own made or are they available from another source?

You're team, you're choice of logo....get them made where ever you like....



However, teams that have formed since the conception of the National Network tend to use the same Orange and White rectangular "sandwich" background with their own text on it, and some teams have for various reasons have required a change in logo and have also adopted the same. Alasdair is, with the help of Mario, currently producing sets of logos for most of the teams.....can I suggest that if you think you will use the same that you ask Alasdair/Mario to sort you a set out, they will be provided in various sizes and file formats (zipped) and have the correct ratio/colours/font to match the national.



Also ask around for printers, suppliers.



Hope that's helpfull.



Nigel.

At Peak 4x4 we have used the logo created by Hertfordshire 4x4 Response - it's orange and red chequered so looks good in vehicles. I'll dig out a copy of the master doc and post it on the forum.

There is a wide variation of team logos



The Wessex Logo incorporates the emblems of the old West Saxon Kings,



Gloucestershire and Worcestshire have a "hill" logo.



4x4 Response North East have a 'compass rose'pointing to the North East.



It is a matter for each team but as has been said many of the newer teams are taking either the sandwich or battenburg as their base.

Personally, I think the only thing that needs to be standard across the network is the 'Official' Responders' Stickers that are recognised as 'Official' by the user services.



Anything above that is just publicity or window dressing

BHC logo is also (heavily) based on the Herts one.



As it's only 2 colour it's quite cheap to print. Idea is that when printing onto hi vis it will only need 1 colour & a black box as either the yellow or orange of the hi vis will act as 1 of the backgound colours.



If you want one I should be able to change the text ( as long as it's ok with teh management) on ours & email, let me know

Where i would have said the exact opposite. Â*The only non-national thing needed is the 'local call sign / group' sticker - anything else is just window dressing.











It comes down to some people want a national group split into regions, and other want a regional group with affiliation to a national umbrella.









Of course, it's easier for me / West Mids as we had no previous identity to be worried about losing.

As far as I'm concerned and I'm sure the other trustees will agree there is no common signage at all.



Some groups use callsign stickers on their vehicles - some do not.



Some groups have adopted the "Responder Stickers" available through National (or artwork to produce your own) others have not - it is hoped that over time all groups might adopt these to form a common standard but at the moment there is no requirement.

Interestingly, and slightly connected, there is an article in this months Radcom magazine about how Raynet were unable to help during the adverse whether due to a lack of national coordination / control / stats etc. Â*And how the user bodies expected a national framework rather than shrapnel groups here there and, in some cases, not there!









Sounded a little familiar to me.
