Things are looking up! I just ordered a fresh batch of the practically bulletproof SCCNA stickers last night. I put one of these on the back of my SW2 back in July and there seems to be no visible deterioration.

Yes they are! Good find! Message me your mailing address and I will send you one gratis.

The rest of you have to submit a photo and face the judgement of your Pierre’s. Wee wee!

I am not eligible to enter my own contest, but I couldn’t help taking a few more sky shots for the fun of it. I hope it inspires some more entries. A new batch of SCCNA stickers arrived yesterday so someone is going to win the Grand Prize.
Don’t pass up this golden opportunity to enter for a chance to win these rare and unique pieces of contemporary Saturnalia.

Default Re: Photo Contest - Best Saturn Sky!

Update: having trouble with SCCNA sticker quality.

With the help of Nekomimi, I purchased a sheet of four round 4” SCCNA stickers from StickerYou.com almost one year ago. After a year on my un-garaged SW2 And virtually no visible degradation in the New England elements I feel it’s a safe prize for the photo contest.

Therefore I ordered 3 more sheets from StickerYou.com. It’s a simple re-run using the original digital art file sent in June of 2017. When my order arrived the red of the sticker seemed pale and washed out at first glance. Then I held the fresh new stickers up to the one on my car and the difference was quite noticeable. I still have a half sheet of the original print job and took a photo of the new and old stickers side by side and sent it to StickerYou.com requesting a fix. They agreed and re-ran the job.

Days later the stickers arrive and the red is still washed out.

I re-request a reprint and this time they ask for a Pantone color number to try and match and I supply it. (Pantone is a worldwide standard for matching inks and ink colors in the world of printing and graphic arts.)

Today a new batch of stickers arrived and the red is still just as pale and washed out. I really think they are not even trying at this point and just re-running the job.

Keep in mind that the same company printed this exact same job a year ago and the red was rich and vibrant.

I put in another request to correct the job with StickerYou.com this evening.

See attached photo - the lower left SCCNA sticker is the original print job while the others are the third try.

None of these are mine and they shouldn't be included in the contest but I was looking around on Instagram and found some pretty nice pics. Even even two coupes hanging out over in Japan! (And yes, I know they have cali plates but they must have been imported from California. The account owner is definitely living in Japan.)
