    Default Window stickers of African Euro mounts. What do you think?

    Guys I have been kicking an idea around for a little while now, and would like your input.

    Here in the states there are a lot of folks who put those window stickers on there vehicles. The likes of Elk, Whitetail, Mule Deer, etc... I don't know if they do in Canada, sure they do, but I have yet to see or find any based on African game.

    I would like to start with Euro mounts of a few species and see if it would be a seller. I have a Warthog and Blesbok Euro mount already, and I was going to animate them and go to a friend of mine who does car decals and get a few hundred made up, and then try to sell them. Again, been kicking this around for a while.

    My question to you guys is this, #1 would anyone here display these decals on your car/truck? (I am) #2 would anyone send me good photos of their Euro mounts, so I could animate them? If you would be willing, just PM me your pics. Was thinking of putting the name of the animal under the animated Euro picture. Will probably start out with the basics, Blue and Black Wildebeest, Springbok, Kudu, Gemsbok, Blesbok, Warthog, Impala, etc. Maybe throw in a Cape Buffalo Euro mount as well.

    I appreciate good or bad feedback. If it is something that you guys think would sell, and something you would purchase then please let me know, guess I am trying to test the waters before I make the initial investment.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback, Scott.

    I think it could work. I have seen some elephant, lion and leopard silhouettes on the large auction site but never euro mount stickers. Can you post an idea of what you are thinking or is it top secret as of right now.

    I hope this did it. Just look at it from the carbon copy point of view, The black areas will actually be the white part that stays on the glass. This is the Blesbok image. They won't be this large, more like 3"x 3", maybe a little bigger. Anyway, tell me what you think.

    Well I think the kudu and Cape buffalo stickers could sell well. Maybe the oryx and sable too.

    Love the idea, unfortunately in Europe it s not a good idea to put a decal on your car with anything to do with firearms or hunting.

    We have too many rabid "greenies".

    Thanks Brickburn and Jerome. Guys you can email me at srconcrete@charter.net with pictures of your Euro mounts. Close photos with some shadows will work best, so I can animate with some detail. I'll keep posting the new ones, (with some assistance, thanks again guys). How about a Kudu, Sable, Cape Buff, and a Gemsbok for starters.

    Again, Look at it carbon copy, black is white and that's what stays on glass, guncase, safe ,Etc. Blue Wildebeest decal.

    Well gents, the vinyl cutter, software, and computer came 2 days ago. I finally got the software downloaded, and am working on about five more animals drawings (if bluey's pics come in it will be seven animals). I will get them cut, and put them on my suburban and take a few pics of the finished product. The name of the company will be Wild Africa Decals (owned by your's truly), trademarks in the works too. Not so cheap to start up, but, I think it'll be worth it. I love this stuff.

    I need a good photo of a Kudu and Gemsbok Euro mount, the ones I found online lack in detail, any help is appreciated.

    Check out my other thread, The birth of "WildAfricaDecals", my contact info is on there along with the five Euro mounts thus far, in decal form.
