Sure, send me a bunch and I'll put them on stop signs from San Diego county, north to Humboldt county.

No, really, I will. Then we can start a thread entitled "996Outpost spotted xxxx" with a photo and the location spotted by someone other than the person that placed it. Meanwhile, you go on record not recommending that behavior. :lol:

Okay, stand by for another ghosted post. Go ahead, Gnat. Do your thing :D

OK, I'm gonna proceed with the decal. 1" tall, 6" wide, text "996Outpost.com" in Impact font. Like my huge-ass rear window decal, except not 3 feet wide.

If any of you are Illustrator users and can bust out a vector file for me with the above specs, that would be cool - otherwise I'm going to have to dig up my ANCIENT copy of Illustrator and find out if it will run on Windows 10...

If by "Guards Red" you mean white vinyl: absolutely.

I've got you. 1) When do you need it. 2) Do you want to see another font besides Impact? Something more like the header font? Porsche font?

I do this for a living so I can knock it out no problem.

Whenever you have the time. For the first batch, I figured I'd just go with Impact. Not many other large-face fonts are legible between upper and lower-case, and I don't want to do the whole thing in uppercase.

Thanks for offering to bust it out. You are the MAN!

Wow, I didn't realize there was that kind of money in 996outpost.com stickers.

Welllll... It's not so much the money as much as the "Get Un-banned Free!" cards. Oh, and he gave me a mini commemorative banhammer so long as I promise to only swing it at b3.

OK, the 669com.Postout decals are ordered.

Thanks for the vector goodness, Dr. S.

Finish size wound up being 7.5x1 - here's a sample (the actual decals will not feature the cropped "p"):
