Thanks. This one seems to be working out pretty good.

Looks a little blurry on my screen but this monitor at my office is dirty and old as dirt.

You might want to have a look HERE or HERE as this is where I found much better logos (there's an eps version on the ~13th page of the second link if you want vector). biggrin.gif

I understand the issues with Olde English... it looks really nice for a short while, but unless it's for a monogram it starts to get really busy... hence why you never see it used for product labeling or marketing. (In a previous life I thought I was going to be a graphic designer until I decided I'd rather just make money... LOL!)

I think your designs are just fine - I simply posted that label as something to consider... since I don't have Illustrator on my machine at the office I had to make due with what I had. I think they look good with the flame, but as you said - you'll have two different models of fan to cover and let's face it... they're fans after all... even a plain white label with just "MERLIN" in Bold Arial or TNR in the same blue as the blades will look very nice and add a finishing touch!

Yep, I'm using one of those.
Here's a paper cutout sitting on a fan.
....and you're right, I don't want to spend endless hours on something hardly seen. I'm pretty tired of it already. smile.gif
No way to match colors up, the inkjet will only do so much, after all.

Looks good but when printed out it is kind of hard to see Merlin.

This printer won't match very well what's on screen, so ultimately what is dark blue comes out almost black in print.

That looks really good. It will shine a little better on the photo paper if that is what you are using with the adheasive backing. Looks good I like it makes me want to do some stickering.
