My DX dilemma (Look inside for free unicorns and OTHER stuff)

EDIT: All 20 decals are accounted for and mailed out. Thanks for playing! I'll keep the original post up so everyone can see what it was all about. I do plan on doing this again in the future but with a few more restrictions. I'll make it more obvious (not with a vague topic again) but you can expect them to go 10 times faster when I get to that point.






What's my dilemma you ask? This will either go over really really well, or people will be just "mehhhh". So let's find out!!!!
(thread is kind of purposely vague just to see who'd enter to possibly help with a 'problem')



1) I do vinyl on the side.
2) My dilemma is that I've got 20 sets of 4X VRSCDX decals that I made today and need bikes to put them on.
3) I'm a super cool guy that does nice things for cool people.
4) I only really do vinyl for close friends, and even then I hook them up and not for big profits.
5) I'm not a vendor on the site and don't want to use it as a front for selling.
6) The forum has helped me with some issues I've had and this is my thanks.
7) Will he cut more after the 20 are gone? WHO KNOWS?!?!?! HAHAHHAHA
8) Will he cut different colors? ZOMG I DUNNOZ!

I will give all 20 of these sets away for free, shipping included (4 will fit in a regular envelope). I'm giving 4 per person. You can do 2 on the back wheel per side, or 1 per wheel (it will fit the same curvature of the front wheel as well).

All you have to do is PM me saying "HEY HEY COOL GUY! I'd love one of those SNAZZY DECALS FOR MAH RIMS Y0!" and I'll reserve one for you hero.
After they're all spoken for, I'm going to post that they're gone, and I'll label the envelopes to be mailed out. First come first serve. If I get people wah wahing that they didn't get one because I selectively picked em or something, I'll post screen shots of my PM box with who was first.
Not trying to be some vinyl god or something, I'd just like to avoid anyone drama.

For the record, these are pics of it on my bike. This was a preliminary version that's a hair taller than the ones I'm sending out. The ones going out are 1/2" tall. The rim is an 18" rim. I tried one out on the front rim and it seemed to follow the outside diameter line pretty well.
Also, I have my red stripe blacked out. If you are interested in getting some black vinyl strips to black that line out, let me know in the PM and I'll see about making you a black stripe kit as well. I use a flat black for that and it blends in UNBELIEVABLY WELL.






These are for you, the 1130cc members. If I find out anyone paid for any of these from another member, I'll 1) cut your nuts. 2) send out letters to your neighbors (from the address you gave me) claiming you've recently purchased child porn from a cook at the local Denny's.
And if you get one from me, post a pic up.
I may do different runs later on in a different font and/or color depending on what people are interested in.

Thumbs up to someone contributing to the community. I'd take one, but it'd sit in the shelf for years. That said, nice Porsche label!

Just a heads up, I've go 6 reserved so far. I think not blatantly putting it in the title helped to keep it fairly tame so far. Which probably is a good thing. I'll mail you 6 guys ones out this morning.

Remember if anyone's interested in blacking out their stripe I can make a kit for that too. It's free as well, I just have to mail it in a different package. Which isn't a big deal.

11)
12)
13)
14)
15)
16)
17)
18)
19)
20)

The black out kits might take an extra day or two to assemble and cut out (I've gotta do some stuff at work today so I just need to find the time). But it's not a big deal to get done. I still need addresses from a couple of people, so if I asked for it from ya, be sure to message me back. Also if you're from Canada, I'll have to visit the post office to send it off (since I'm not sure the exact cost) so I plan on doing that when I send the black out kits (which is a bigger package).
It's easier if you just send your address with your first pm. I'll respond to you to let you know that one's saved for you. When they're all accounted for I'll post it up in here so everyone knows.

I'm leaving now to mail out the 3 or so that are done. If you're interested in the black out kit, be sure to let me know so I don't package your stuff first and get it ready to send out the door without it.

Found out mailing regular envelopes to Canada is only $.85, so two Forever stamps works fine for that. Blackout kits still require me to go to the counter since I'm not using prepaid packages. So Canada or not, those blackout kits will have to wait till I find the time to make it to the post office.
You Canadians are coming outta the woodworks eh?
"EH?". HAH i just made myself laugh. My boss is Canadian and he throws that out there just to do it.

I had to redo the black strips in Corel since I was having to do more than 1 or 2. So I'm cutting 23 strips @ 13" long. That gives each of you 299 total inches in length of black.
An 18" rim has 56.5" of circumference. So you'll have black to do 5.29 rims. You need 4(left and right of each rim). So this'll give you a few extra strips to fix any screw ups that you may encounter, or keep them as backups for later on if one gets cut or something.
