A quick back story. I recently started a new business it is a condom membership service. (Link deleted in accordance with forum policy. )

In the process of looking for ideas to market the business I came across this sticker for sale on amazon http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81KPRXTl7OL._SL1500_.jpg it's a pretty cool and funny slogan.

Anyway I was thinking of ordering one and putting it on my solstice but then I was thinking if it might offend someone and they might key my car or something. My question to you all is this sticker too offensive or is it funny? I kinda want one but I am not sure if I am risking my cars life in the process. Seems perfect as our cars are the anti-minivan right?

BTW everyone have a great new year, it is just 24 hours away!:yesnod:

Ok so I am not the only one that found it funny and not offensive, well that is good. I sometimes have a "different" sense of humor and people don't always think like me. I am the type that you can't really offend though so I am probably not the best judge of normal or acceptable, or at least that is what my wife would say..... hahaha.

I don't see a problem with it. These days everything is so open anyway and the things they get away with on TV and the radio are insane. I'd laugh if I saw it on any car.

Thing about it though bill, anything you stick on your bumper now days, is gonna offend someone. I doubt a group of female activists are gonna set your car on fire though. You should do the one on one side and then offset it by sticking a Hilary Clinton sticker on the other:)

I think it is funny and I doubt it would elicit a violent reaction, but personally I am not a fan of stickers on autos. Heck, I even removed the badges and name plate on my Sol. lol.

As far as business promotion is concerned, have you tried social media? You could start a Facebook page, ( I call it "Two-faced Book"), or there is a way you can get your business on FB. I am not sure how to do that though. A colleague and I started a FB page for a book we wrote together, and it worked out really well.

I laughed. I can see others in this day and age being upset because, well they feel they have a right to not be offended. I wouldn't put it on my car because I don't put stickers on my cars. To each his own!

Ok apparently I broke a forum rule and my business name got deleted from my original post along with the link, I am sorry I didn't realize you were not allowed to use your business name or a link in a post.

Anyway that sticker is pretty good but I probably won't be putting it on my car because of fear of someone getting mad and taking it out on the solstice. Maybe I should look into getting it on a shirt though. ;-)

Mine is debadged also, I like the cleaner look and I personally hate chrome as it is very dated. Unfortunately though the door handles are still chrome and look like they came straight outta 1983!

And yep we already have a Facebook page (1632 followers already too) and on there I like to think I have done pretty good with some of the marketing. Most are funny little quick one liners. I would link to it but apparently that isn't allowed so....

Not a problem. The forum is paid for by supporting venders and the owners have established rules against listing any vender that is not a paying supporting vender. Several people did see your link and anyone can ask you. :thumbs:

Funny :thumbs: Screen save the image take it to you local graphic shop and have them replicate it out of static cling, that way when in doubt you can pull it out.
