This site costs me a bit to run so I was wondering if the Prius community would be interested in buying bumper/ window stickers promoting/supporting this site. They wouldn't be anything fancy just simple text

www.PriusOnline.com

They would be individual vinyl leters with no background so they should look good with all car colors. I can get them made with two colors one for the outline and another to fill the letters. I'm leaning to White letters with Black outline so they can be easially seen if used in a window. The letter height will be around 1.5 inches.

If I can get at least 25 people to buy them, price would be $5 each

Yes, I would be interested. Frankly, I would like this site to become the defacto Prius board instead of the Yahoo site with all its advertizing and poor layout, features, etc.

Ditto on that! I'll take two. And here's another irritating thing about Yahoo: I tried to register a logon, using every conceivable variation of my name(s), initials, etc., and was rejected as "already in use." Baloney! I finally said "the [bleep] with it," having heard other negative things about Yahoo in the meantime. Priusonline.com rules!

I will start shipping the stickers in two weeks. You can order them using the link at the bottom of the page. I didn't spend the time to make it look nice so if anyone wants to make a better button they can email it to me at [email protected] and I will replace it.

I didn't make it clear before that the $5 includes shipping. So far I only have 8 people who said they want one.

Hi Pete,
Please post an address where we can send checks. See recent
articles on slashdot.org for why I won't use paypal (and why
you might want to reconsider).

Checks can be sent to:

Dynamo Computers
1135 Elton Dr
Endicott, NY 13760-1434

Please indicate what you are paying for and give your complete address.

Thanks for your support in keeping PriusOnline Ad free...well almost I guess the thing at the bottom for the sticker could be considered an ad.

Just wanted to let everyone know who has ordered stickers that I am having dufficulty getting them made. I have access to a vinyl cutter at the high school where I volunteer as an advisor for their EV team, but have not had the time to make many recently. I tried some a week ago but was not able to make the vinyl cutter work correctly...it would go 3 feet down the roll before it started cutting. I will ship out the ones I did get made this week, and hopefully I will be able to get more made soon.

I would buy one if...

If it had a cool tag line like the "Eat My Voltage" from toyota or "My car is technicaly superior to yours" or "Guzzlers Suck". Also you could probably drop the www to help shorten the sticker.

e.g. "Guzzlers Suck, PriusOnline.com"

Guess I'm old fashioned, but I just don't like the "s" word and would never display such a sticker on my Prius. I don't like gas guzzlers either, but do Prius owners have to be put-down artists to get our point across? I hope not. I was one of the first to order the http://www.priusonline.com stickers, but I haven't put it on the car for fear of ruining the surface.

I like bumper stickers, I just refuse to stick them to my car.

I've got a few taped to the bottom (inside) of my rear window.

I've seen some magnetic bumper sticker holders available, both on eBay, and on several bumper-sticker ordering websites. Looks like you could pick up the material at a craft store if you're so inclined. Magnetic backing which'll stick to your car (not permanent), and you either put the sticker directly on the thin flexible magnet, or there's a little plastic pocket on the magnet that you can swap stickers in and out of for use in the same magnet (after you get tired of them).

There are other alternatives to placing the sticker on your bumper, is all I'm saying.

One other possibility would be to offer the "www.priusonline.com" sticker with the adhesive on the *front* of the letters so you could put it inside the rear window. How about it, Pete? And while I'm at it, thank you for this terrific site! It's ever so much more user friendly IMHO than that exasperating y****! site.

I haven't been by in a while, so sorry this is a bit late.

Heck, I will send you the $5 and you can keep the sticker (my Prius is clean...). Thanks for a great site.
