    Kicked around the idea of making African window stickers and after I posted a previous thread here on AH (thanks for all the comments) I decided to do it. Made the initial investment on a vinyl cutter worked up about 12 different designs. I decided to listen to Eric on this one. the first three I downloaded and cut were, Gemsbok, Cape Buffalo, and Kudu Euro mount window stickers.

    Here they are on the back window of my Suburban. Will follow up on selling these on AH, waiting for a reply back from Jerome. Hope you enjoy, I do.

    Thanks again for all the posts and recommendations on the other thread.

    Thanks Spike, working on Impala, Springbok, and re-working the Blue Wildebeest. Again, pictures of Euro mounts are always welcome, doesn't have to be African. srconcrete@charter.net In the future, I was planning on some life like (with the skin on) decals, I want to see how these Euro decals do first. :draught:

    Brick, at this point it is all custom work. So, yes, if you have something in mind, I'll give it a shot (pun intended). :thumb:

    Looks Good hope it works out for you. once you figure out what the price is going to be you may want to give ebay a try as well mark them up a little to cover your sellers and Paypal fees.

    Bob, still waiting to here back from Jerome, but, What I would like to do is possibly sell them here on AH. Then I guess I will set up an account on that dreaded FB and try to market them that way. Really don't like paypal or Ebay, but, if it is the way to market these I guess I'll give it a whirl. BTW my wife said the same thing as you did, still think I will see how the other options work out, don't like the idea of having to mark them up to maintain the same profit margin.. Thanks for your support.

    The decals (skulls) range between 4-4 1/2 inches tall, so overall they are almost 10-12 inches i.e. kudu, gemsbok. Your Samba deer may be a bit taller in decal form. Looking forward to working one up for you. Yes, can do them in different colors, just a thought here, but if the ute is white I can do a box form around the white you see on my window, hence giving you the appearance of what you see on my window. I'll ship one like that to you with the others. Talk to you soon. I'll email you a picture of what I mean.

    Guys just set up Facebook page, search for Wild Africa Decals, the go to my "untitled album" and prices are all on there. Shipping outside of the US will be actual shipping cost. Also, 2% of all profit will be donated to Johnny Vivier's Pathways Residence South Africa.

    With approval from Jerome I will post prices etc. on here as well.

    I love these. I've been keeping an eye on your progress and I'm glad to see them come to fruition. Showing my brother and Dad the images, too.
