It might be a compliment but some enterprising print shop in Spain has stolen my design for a Right Hand Drive and sold one to someone we know. So caught red handed so to speak.
You might note its identical to mine done as a decal.
Another happy customer with their opening window on their Pulse Ambulance. Took 10 mins to fit. Now thats a success !
Another Overlander wanted some stickers so using his existing theme we made him a new logo. All printed and cut ready for dispatch.
There you have it. Something to ruin my otherwise sunny day. A simple name change and I need to do a whole new set of flags. These will be in production on the next run or sooner if I can get an emergency run in at the printers.
Kingdom of eSwatini
The king of Swaziland Africa’s last absolute monarchy, has announced that his country has changed its name to the Kingdom of eSwatini to mark 50 years since independence from British rule. He said it keeps getting confused with Switzerland and some of his population are not happy that the "old" name is a mix of Swazi (siSwati) and English.
We are now full stocked with all the flag sets. All the new ones are in stock. We have:-
Another happy customer from the other side of the world travelling from New Zealand. I told you we do ship worldwide.
Another happy customer in the form of Guy and Shaz from TruckedOff.
I got round to putting my own stickers on my own truck. Henrietta now has all the places we've visited on the back. The ones on the side were removed and we are now sporting a single set. I messed up on the door stay......it should be in the middle of a sticker position. Oh well....
The super helpful overlanding trio that is Julie, Marcus and Cuthbert got some flag stickers. When I say some, they got the full world and when I say helpful I mean Marcus does an awesome amount of research on the quality of diesel in his blog, how if affects Euro engines and they are both also active members of the Overlanding Association. Check their blog out here. I'm sure they will be using many more of the 190 or so flags of the world they got. Happy trails guys.
Another intrepid adventure starts and they got some stickers, to go! The first one is applied and of course its the UK departure point. So follow http://www.landyonthesilkroad.com who aren't actually driving a Land Rover but a Land Cruiser. They got a full set of Europe, Asia and Oceania stickers so looks like that's the plan! I really think a full set of world flag stickers would have been more of an adventure but i'm just trying to upsell. Happy Trails !
Hopefully we will see more country flags on the window soon. Good luck guys and thanks for buying from us. See you in Australia maybe.
The name of my overlanding truck which is covered in stickers is Henrietta. Named after a book my wife loves.
I sell stickers so i've gone a bit overboard, haven't I? There's also another reason though. As she was once an army ambulance some countries don't like the "army look" and especially the green. So we covered her in stickers to make her look less "menacing".
You might notice the liberal use of country flag stickers from all the places we've been. So if you travel the world and need to look as silly as we do, for legitimate reasons of course, then you know where to get them. However you could apply them a little more tastefully than we have. There's a picture below of the old truck, Matilda. We only had them on the back door. An excellent talking point with the locals. Unfortunately they had faded a bit as they weren't as good as the ones i'm selling. Those were an African special......
So another couple of examples of what we have been doing. This time its some warning stickers for both LHD and RHD vehicles. I think you can work out what it means. As always let me know if this is something you'd want. The BIG stickers are 200mm.
If you don't know what this is, it's a pain in the backside is what it is. Trying to get the rankings up so the site shows in the search engines and its really hard. Everyone is of course trying to do the same and appear at number #1 in google. There's only ever a single number #1. If you know me from the overlanding blogs on my other site (www.overlandbirds.com) you will know I do lots of film titles as blog titles. Well this times its a dialog line from a film. Can you guess which....."there can be only one".....i'll give you a clue, the soundtrack is by Queen.
So if you have a blog of your own you can link this site and it might give me a boost in the rankings. I will of course do the same for you on my other blog and that ranks very high, usually number #1.
I've been working hard on getting a good set of US State Flag Stickers and Canadian Provinces Flag Stickers produced. These are still draft and a bit more work to do with checking correctness and colour accuracy but they will be in the next print run. Same price for a 4 sheet set (USA) or a single sheet (Canada) as with the other Country Flag Sticker sets.
