This is what I made today!

It's an old style corrugated (cardboard) sunshade... with an old Nissan logo inspired by a pic I saw online.

original pic:

The Japanese kanji reads:
日産純正: "genuine Nissan"
(pronounced nissan junsei)


Hope you guys like it!

I'll be updating this thread when I come out with new sticker designs...so stay tuned!

These were HAND made by me...
Having that said, these were made for display purposes only. I was only going to put these up during shows and meets.

I really don't recommend using them on an everyday basis. The only protection I've done is put a UV protection coating so that the ink won't fade. If under extreme conditions like cold (like snow temperatures) or heat (like the under sun) for extended periods, there is the possibility that the glue can start to lift or peel.

I've only made a few and don't really plan on making a whole lot more as I don't want to step on any copyright infringements or any other legal trouble.
I have very limited quanities, so PM me only if you're seriously interested.

Thanks for the kind compliments!

Yes, I'm a graphic designer as well as a package designer. I do corrugated (cardboard) boxes and displays for a living. So when I have spare time, I like to do things for my favorite hobby....old japanese car related items!

I'm sure you've all seen my "cardboard goon" on the coverage of JCCS 09:

and my paper goon: (that I never finished)

FINALLY! My latest stickers are ready to make their debut!
I've been really excited about these!

Introducing my JAPANESE SERIES: based on road signs found in Japan
"stop junk" and "old car life"


Image

"stop junk" is based on the Japanese stop sign, which is a red triangle. The normal stop sign has ”とまれ” (tomare) which obviously means to stop. I came up with ”ポンコツ” (ponkotsu) , which is sort of a slang term for junk, and put it in its place.
I guess the meaning behind it is:
A ) to tell people who drive shitty cars to stop (and stay the hell away from me and my car)
B ) to tell other car people to stop making their cars into junk
C ) to tell car manufacturers to stop producing junk
D ) ALL OF THE ABOVE


"old car life"
is based on a sign that indicates if a road is accessible to cars or not (the not has a red circle and a slash through it) and I came up with ”旧車生活” (kyuusha seikatsu), which means old car life. This one is a little more toned down (in attitude anyways) and is more of a way to show our love for old skool Japanese cars.

Hope you guys like it!
I'll have a pic of it on my own car shortly!

Okay, two questions:

1) How to order?
2) Any chance of getting more black Goon Squad silhouette stickers any time soon?

Looks good man! Looking forward to picking some up.
