    Someone send me the measurements for the eGo and I'll work on few and send them to whoever wants them.

    No charge.

    Congrats on using Free Software. :2cool: I noticed from your screen shot you're still using that Redmond OS though. :(

    I'm not a wizard with either Inkscape or The GIMP, but then for my needs, I don't have to be.

    I might have to play a bit on a possible stencil. Would be cool if my batts could fly the Gadsden flag, for example.

    I've always thought that flag would have had a lot more impact if it weren't so hideously ugly. I mean, that awful yellow... ugh!

    Maybe some kind of stylized version... without the yellow!

    Yellow tends to catch people's eye pretty well.

    But you can always go with the Culpeper.

    Could you use photoshop and substitute the yellow for white? Then make a template for a jantystick v3? I need all I can get from this Piece 'a.

    I was looking at my chipped up atomizer just last night thinking about how skinz would be such a great idea THAT I BET NO ONE EVER THOUGHT OF YET(!!!!!!!!!) and got all excited about the idea, I even sent a message to Geoffe at TV telling him MY GREAT AND ORIGINAL IDEA and that he should start selling skins....now...Im so embarrassed. I guess Im not as edgey and original as I thought I was for the last 24 hours!!!

    ANYWAY......dude.....I would buy a couple of sets from you if youre able to print on the vinyl. Please let me know if youd be interested in selling some stuff.

    I use GIMP pretty extensively myself...Ive designed quite a few custom decals for some of my camping gear(see the photos in my profile) that Ive had printed and cut by over-priced local sign companies.

    Dude I'd absolutely love something for my Screwdriver but doubt it'd work very well on its body type

    Oh gaaahhhdd. Coming from a 7 year Photoshop user, I recently had to download Gimp while I was away and the tools just were not up to par. I continued using it for the next 4 months seeing if I could get away with using gimp vs Photoshop but ehhh. No go. But it's good for some things.

    Like I've mentioned, I've been getting the hand-me-down versions for years, but balked once Adobe started bundling it as "Creative Suite". It seemed like that was just WAY more than this old truck driver needed, for the little bit of dabbling I do with it. I occasionally get the urge to learn new software, though, so one of the "CS" versions is on the way (not sure if it's 1 or 2).

    Nice to know you're a PS pro, Xanax: someone else I can pester with questions talk about PS with! :D

    @ 324productions:

    Sorry I didn't see your post earlier, I lost this thread somewhere along the way. I don't know the dimensions of your Janty Stick, but a black and white version of that image is pretty easy to do. I attached one to this post, below.

    Or, like Whistle_Pig said, you could go with the Culpepper (attached).

    Absolutely. And it's pretty advanced for being a knockoff. If i'd never used Photoshop and if I wasn't such a PS junkie I'd pobably be thrilled with Gimp and Gimpshop (A knockoff of Gimp LOL!) but I can't help but compare every graphic design program to Photoshop. But Photoshop is soooo overpriced it's effing ridiculous. I've paid 2 grand to adobe in the past 4 years

    So, question on this: To make it feasible, would you need to do a minimum run? I know a lot of companies that do things like this would require a minimum of 50-100 of the same image. If that wouldn't be a limitation, I would be interested in talking to you about doing something with it, I have a few geeky ideas :)

    I had an idea for a re-interpretation of the Gadsden Flag meant for cylindrical objects, here's a quick knock-up that could use some refinement:

    [​IMG]

    I simplified the detail quite a bit, hopefully enough that the cutting machine can handle it, and it can actually be applied by human hands, haha. I've applied vinyl signs to windows, but never had to remove little bits of vinyl as small as the interior of some of those letters will be. Xacto knives can only go so far...

    EDIT: Nah, the more I think about it, the less I believe it can be done that size with vinyl.
