Update: 1-11-09

At this point I think I'm all caught up again, or have at least responded to everyone.

If you have been waiting, or have not heard from me, please resend a PM. I would hate to miss anyone, but I had a ton of PM's and emails to sort through.

Thanks again!

I messaged about 2 months ago and still no response. I'd say he probably has something going on
now.

Try emailing him.  I emailed him about 3 days ago and he got back to me and filled my order within 24 hrs.

Got it.

Just giving my usual speech here,...I had some unexpected stuff over the weekend, so I'm trying to get caught up again.

As always,... if you don't hear back from me, then be persistent. Really, I don't mind.

As a general FYI, the delays I keep experiencing are usually related to custom sets. ,... I have a pretty limited amount of free time to work on these, and my 6 mo. old really cuts into that. The pre-done sets take a lot less time, so I can squeeze them in easier. Don't let that discourage you if you want something custom,... the delays are usually short.

One last comment,... I would like to expand the sets to include a bit more options, so if you have ideas about what you want to see here, then let me know. 

Things I have been considering are:
1. Name stickers that are popular with my friends for kid's bikes. 
2. small stickers that you can put on car windows or laptop,... misc retro arcade themes?

Im a computer / laptop guy Pongo I like the idea of  some stuff to stick on there but you said you only cut solid colors not print right?

So that leaves a lot of limitation in what can be done as the popular thing is laptop skins that cover the lid of any design you want.

Still though I may be able to come up with a "window" design for my new laptop that has cutouts to show a certian design through the vinyl.  Question is what kind of adhesive doe sit use?  The kind that can come off with no harm & residue or is this like industrial permanent stuff?

I considered blue, but went with 1 black and 1 white. They came in today, but I haven't seen them yet.

ViciousXUSMC: The vinyl can be removed with no permanent damage, as long as the surface is ok for that. What I mean by that, is that if you put it on a piece of plastic you will have no problems removing it, but if it was a piece of cardboard it may pull up some of the cardboard due to the adhesive. Any remaining adhesive can usually be wiped right off, but if it has been on there a while it may take a bit of rubbing. I have so goo-off stuff that cleans up everything in one pass, but rubbing alcohol works good too. Removing the vinyl will destroy it also, so there is no option to take it off and then put it back on.

Hope that answers any questions you might have. Feel free to PM me if you have any detailed questions,... I don't always check this thread, so I can miss it here.

I've done a few decals in blue, so I know they are out there.

What does a one sheet include? One set or all three sets of the standard decals that you have in the first post?

Could someone please post a picture of something from Set2?
Are they as big as I think they are? Button sized in hight?
Might we see an update of the sets sometime soon? Or maybe a brand new set?
I realy like the font of the vinyls you made fore Jason. Are they available (did you save the pics)?
Do they "go bad" if I keep them, for let's say a year, before I try to apply them?
I'm gonna place and order if I only could make my mind up what color scheme to go with on my build.

Here are some answers to the last questions. Sorry I don't always check this post, so answers here can be a bit slow.

1. yes, set #2 is button height. I originally thought the on-button decals would be too small to make.

2. set #3 has evolved a bit from what you see here. I have added a few to the set, so I need to get a current version up when I get a chance.

3. I backup everything, so I can probably pull an old job to re-cut. Actually I've already done that set for a few others as well.

4. These stickers should never go bad. There are only a few things I can think of.
- eventual color fading. I've never seen it, but if they were exposed to sunlight a lot, they would probably fade a bit.
- They should be stored in a place with reasonable temperatures. If they get subjected to a lot of heat, it's possible that the adhesive melts a bit and sticks to the transfer paper. This just makes it a bit trickier to apply, but the stickers themselves should be fine.
- small pieces may fall off with abuse. These are pretty tough, but at a small size there is simply not enough adhesive to keep tiny pieces from moving. Again, I haven't heard of this happening, but it's possible.

beyond that, the actual vinyl is very durable. I also do RC cars, snowmobiles, race cars,...etc. The vinyl outlasts the RC car bodies, and the snowmobiles get branches scraped across them occasionally.

Hope that answered your questions.

Another grand usage of Pongo's vinyl:

Had 1 power sticker left over & used it on the switch I installed in my steering wheel.  Thanks, Pongo!

More praise for Pongo.  Worked with me on tweaking some of the buttons and got the decals to me quickly.  Prompt communication through the whole process, very happy with the service and the three sheets of decals, will buy again from him.  :cheers:

FWIW (for noobs like me):
Current sellers I have full confidence in: Pongo, Groovy Game Gear, Ultimarc and Divemaster

Thanks for the continued votes of confidence. I appreciate it.

I just wanted to put out a quick message that I'm getting hit hard at work again. I'm doing lots of overtime, which means I'm getting home quite late. Responses may be a bit slower through the next month while this project continues.

I just ask that you be both patient and persistent. I normally try to respond within a day, and if you have not heard any updates from me be sure to drop me a PM.

Thanks

There was someone on here who made vinyle stickers for the Mag-Stick plus dust washer. It was to signify how to use the 4/8 way switching function. I'll have to hunt down the thread. Could you make one of these? I'm sure there are plenty of folks that could use one.

Sorry for the lack of answers. I've been working extreme hours over the last week so I haven't had much time to do any catching up.

Once things slow down a bit I hope to get the new stuff organized a bit.

Just a note to those waiting for a response from me,... I hope to catch up this weekend, so if you do not hear from me by then, please re-send me a PM. Thanks.

Thought I would have some new options by now, but it's taking longer than expected. (As usual)  I've just got way too many life things that keep getting in the way (work, 3 kids, Building out my basement, cutting vinyl for you guys...etc)

Anyways, I'm nearly caught up from the busy summer. There are a few custom orders that I am behind on a bit. (You probably know if you are one of those,...sorry,... trying to get there)

All the new sets are going to be is a more streamlined way (I hope) to get a more customized set. Right now I allow anyone to make a few small changes to the sets, but it really slows me down. What I hope to be able to do is get it down to a system where you can make a single set from some "menu" of sorts. That way you make your own set by choosing 4 parts that fit what you need. Full custom will always be available, but the whole idea is to try and streamline things a bit better. Even when I am really busy, I can usually get out the standard sets fast now, but the ones with extra bits tend to lag behind.

Hope that all made sense.
