TT Graphics...Need more input everyone
Posted June 04, 2002 - 04:28 PM
There seems to be enough people who like the color scheme I came up with so I'm still using that as a base. Currently I've added the new TT logo and I'm contemplating other design ideas.
Now for the Question...
What I'd like to know is...am I wasting my time making matching tank and shroud stickers? It seems there are a lot of Yamaha WR/YZ owners who have upgraded their tanks, or plain just don't like tank graphics.
I've received requests to keep all the graphics work on the shrouds only. Is this how everyone feels or just a few?
I still plan to make a rear fender, front fender tip, swing arm, and fork slider graphics to match my design.

Yes on the tank decals, the YOT set on my 426 held up good (unlike ones I've had before) and they protect the tank from alot of abuse from my knees.
How about using the chrome/metallic look like the YOT dragon for the Thumper Talk logo?

the guys that want just the shroud stickers, can put on just the shroud stickers. Everyone else can mount both the shroud AND the tank stickers.
I WOULD NOT make two separate kits, [tank and tank/shroud].
"Please SOME of the people ALL of the time and ALL of the people SOME of the time", and WE ALL will be fine!!
Appreciate all of your effort, Ben!!

climbing aboard kind of late.
BUT when I read the suggestion about using more crome/silver in Your design -YES, YES, YES. If possible do that. Gonna look awsome against the blue of the rest of the bike.
And Yes to tank and shrouds (not seat) and the other areas You intend to design for - great job.

I just came across this thread and thought I'd offer my help.
I own an advertising/design firm and have been in the creative business for along time. Actually I'm a far better designer than I am a rider (or wrencher for that matter). After personally benefiting from the wealth of knowledge on this forum I almost feel obligated to help out in a situation like this.
My firm has a digital imaging division with some pretty awesome equipment including some vinyl plotters, so I have some experience in this area. If you were looking for some help on the project I'd love to get involved.
Send me an email if you’re interested
You can check out my firm at:

I'm not certain when they will be available everyone. Still need to complete design work, but I may have found some help there.
I appreciate everyone's interest and patience. This is for TT, so I'm really trying to make it something everyone will admire and be proud to display on their bikes..

I think you'll find this isn't an easy process and to get the same quality as the big companys it will cost you a fortune for just one set. It is when you begin to order multiple sets that the cost begins to come down.
Don't let anyone fool you...you want a reverse screen printed graphic. You want at least 18 mil vinyl with a special 3M laminated adhesive that is resistant to gasoline.
