Looks really good, do you really need that many logos?!

Thanks! For the machine to cut only one logo it will waste a lot of materil, and the sheet is very expensive. Therefore I'm sparing material and I'm selling it in my country as well. I know at least 9 nationwide collectors who have the same issue of mine. I will also make other diameters, logos and brands.

You do know that you can buy things like this ? Actual chrome ones.

I've had some in my decal / sticker collection for years.

But nice work all the same.

I know but I don't live in Europe. In my country such things does not exist. Everything I have to buy abroad and cost me a finger each purchase. That's why I'm selling these logos a lot here.

Nice job on the logos.  It actually looks better than the "600" logo to me!

In case you haven't found them before, there's a seller on eBay called "globaltoy" that has a lot of different types - they're based in China, and their sheets cost about £6-£7 including shipping to the UK.  It might work out more expensive if you're getting paid for your spare logos, but those eBay sheets usually have a lot of logos so you could share the cost with other collectors?

I think you've done a good job, though imo there's room for improvement.

As suggested above, you could have ordered from globaltoy on eBay. However delivery times from China vary greatly, and there's a risk it might get lost in the post.

The decal sheet on the left took 3 weeks to get to Ireland from a seller from China. The PE sheet to the right took 3 months from globaltoy. Guess it depends on the seller, or the time of the year, or luck.

So, it's great that you can do that yourself! :occasion14:

Hi Alexandre, my swb 600 is missing the rear logo. Do you have spares available?
