UPDATE 20190708: This thread has become a fresh source for small 3"W X 2"H MV stickers. If you don't know what those are, keep reading. I now have received the stickers. If you are interested, just PM me with your address and the number of stickers you need.

I am providing the stickers at cost as long as my limited supply lasts and will be taking payment by PayPal.

To pay by PayPal please indicate that you are sending money to friends and family. Please note that in addition to the cost of the sticker and postage, PayPal will charge you if you fund the payment with your credit card, but if you have a positive balance in your PayPal account, or are paying through a linked bank account, there is no fee for sending funds.

When I receive your request I will reach out to confirm and arrange payment by PayPal and mailing.

As of 20190708@11h12 35 MVers have requested stickers or expressed an interest on this thread, 109 stickers are either spoken for or reserved pending confirmation, out of 204, and 104 stickers have been mailed out or delivered to 33 of the 35 people on the list.

For those who have not yet sent a request and wish to have more information, the cost per sticker is CAD$0.78. Mailing to the US is CAD$1.44 for up to 8 stickers, and CAD$2.15 for up to 24 stickers. Postage is CAD$2.99 to destinations outside Canada and the US, plus tax (20190628: the postage costs blipped up 13% because I just found out there is tax on postage, who knew? I am happily absorbing the tax on the orders fulfilled based on my earlier estimate of postage that failed to take the tax into account).


To all those who have received their stickers and expressed their appreciation on this thread, thank you so much for giving me an opportunity to give back to this forum, it is truly appreciated.
To all MVers with a secret stash of oval MV stickers...

I would really like an MV sticker for my new GTS, large or small, I will be grateful for either. I will happily pay postage via PayPal.

If there are truly none out there, then I will seek permission from the Mods to order a batch and make them available at cost.

Here's a shot of my black GTS with the sticker, and my new red GTS mournfully without.

Warm regards to all,

David

Ironically of the stickers you gave me I still have one small one left. You're more than welcome to it and I can let you have it when you return the heated glove liners I loaned you

Not bitching about the liners BTW, I know you just got back Hopefully won't need them for a while anyway!

Congrats on the new scoot! I hope the trip back was uneventful and not too chilly or wet. It's been a helluva of a wet spring here.

You know it would not be hard (or expensive) to get more made though I'm not sure how management around here would feel but free advertising seems like a good thing.

You guys really rock!!

Harbinger is offering a small MV sticker that I actually gave him a while back. The irony of taking that back is more than I can resist, so I will take him up on that offer, besides, I have to return his heated glove liners. Couldn't have dared that chilly ride back from Montreal without them.

Once you kind folks take stock, please put those stickers in a safe place for other MVers looking to advertise the best scooter forum known to mankind.

Stickyfrog if I wanted to start supplying those stickers to the community at cost, is that something that would be OK? Maybe carry on that discussion by PM if appropriate. BTW, I am still wearing those snap-buckle boots you recommended after you went down on an oil slick. I subsequently went down in a thunderstorm and they did the trick saving my ankle from abuse. I can't thank you enough for that recommendation.

Warm regards to you all!

Well, perusal of my stash indicates I'm plumb out of MV stickers.
Put me on the list for a couple if someone goes ahead and makes more, please.

If you go to Ebay you'll find Martha's Vineyard decals that will do the trick:

I have exchanged some PMs with a moderator.

The Mods can't approve since only Jess can, apparently.

Frankly I am doing this as a favour to MVers who wish to have the stickers for their bikes (which seems to be quite a few of you).

No promises yet, I am going to look into the cost of the stickers and what it would cost to mail, to see what I would need to charge to cover my costs.

If that seems acceptable to those of you who chimed in that they would like to have stickers, then it's probably a go.

Perhaps let me know whether you want the large format, the small format, or one of each and I'll price them.

The small ones are 3" wide and 2" high. The large ones are... larger

Regards to all,

David

Hmmmm.... without the by-line that's really nice. So that's US$4.89 including postage to points in the US.

I actually think I prefer the MV without the modernvespa.com by-line.

That said, I'll get a quote for the sticker with the website address and we'll see how folks feel.

I'm curious as I wasn't around when the stickers, patches etc originally came out. What was the original source of these and how did you order them then?

I don't see why Jess would have a problem with them as it amounts to free advertising for the site. But I guess there may be more to it than that. However if all else fails there is always Martha's Vineyard

I would prefer the small size "without" the web address, but since the site needs to gain from this, too, I'd still buy either way they are made.

Please mark me down as a "yes" for any version decided on. I'll happily contribute and cover your per costs.

All the MV swag I ordered came directly from Jess in California. I donít kmow where the stickers were made.

Typically you ordered a patch in combination with stickers or a combination of types and sizes of stickers.

You had to know where the http://modernvespa.com/forum/merchandise?capisce semi-secret merchandize page was, since there was no direct link on the site.

It's OK the originals will always be worth more. You just can't get that kind of craftsmanship nowadays .

10 for $15.60,
100 for $52.29,
1000 for 176.00,

Thanks Duck.

Since doing this is just a volunteer service to MVerís at cost, I am going to go with the lowest cost. Iíll check it out this week.

Some transparent options would be cool as well, similar to the Malossi sticker in this photo. There is another MV sticker in the pic as well.
