Default Rear bumper vinyl decal insert letters

I have a question for you Saturn owners. I run a vinyl decal shop and have been getting a lot of requests for the decal inserts that go inside the recessed letters of the rear bumper.

I have a set that I made for a customers 2003 Ion but I was wondering if it fit any other car?

Is the recessed area on Saturn Bumpers the same for all models and years?

I would like to add it to our website for people to purchase but I'm not sure what years/models the insert that I have will fit.

Does anyone know if there are different variations/sizes of this bumper insert?

Many thanks in advance.

Can someone verify if these are really the same size or are these 4 items all different sizes?

The lettering sizes changed throughout the years. Speakng for the S-Series only, I believe there were only two sizes. The ION and VUE most likely had the same size as the later model S-Series.

I think that's how i'm going to end up finding out. Selling a bunch and waiting for customer feedback. I'm going to buy those other decals and compare the sizes with each other. Then I'm going to compile my own spreadsheet of compatible cars/years.

I'll be needing some volunteers soon. I'll make another post when I'm ready, but quite a few of you will get some free inserts in return for you telling me if they fit or not. (provided I'm not violating anything here on the boards by doing so)

This is kind of on my list, the original Saturn OEM ones are long gone, I assume, although I have not checked yet. I've got a 95 SC2.

I'll take a rainbow one for the 95 SL1 (Red S, orange A, yellow T, green U, blue R and purple N, all primary colours)
If you give away a solid one, and then start selling the rainbow ones, just let me know how much they cost, and I'll seriously order one at the first opportunity.
Thanks!

OK... Because I don't own a Saturn I never really paid much attention to them. Compiling a list of Saturn cars (years & models) that have the recessed letters in the rear bumper.

But since I am in the vinyl graphic design industry I am in need of your help.

Please tell me the years/models that have the recessed SATURN letters in the rear bumper.

I will be taking down names for those that help and will be sending out free inserts. First come first serve. ONLY those in my list can PM me your address. I will continue to add to the list.

Are the SL1 and SL2 are same car besides features?

So far I have:

95 SC2 (macbox)
98 SC2 (fitz)
01 SC2 (mjdub)

95 SL1 (keviefriend)
01 SL1 (nivlem7)

Kemble, one idea I have is to make casts of the SATURN logo on the bumpers. This would have to be done using plaster of Paris, sculpy, or some other type of modeling clay that does not shrink. My other observation is that some of the logos had raised lettering inside the recessment, having done a little bit of vinyl lettering before this would add compexity to the design for those particular models. I'm at the junkyard right now so I'll document what I can with some pictures.

My sisters 2000 SL1 has recessed letters, my 1996 SL has recessed letters and my cousins 1993 SL2 has recessed letters.

SL1 and SL2 are more or less the same car beside features and engine.

Unfortunetly I am going the other way! I want to fill in the recessed letters and emblem areas so that NO identification is visable. If you know Saturns, you'll know this one, If you don't, Then you have to figure it out. I'd shave the door handles if I had the cash. I like the idea of people wondering what it is. (1993 SC1 btw)
