Subject description: Puppy Linux inside: sticker ideas for you pc or laptop
 

Ok, I seem to end up with these pc's and laptops that had a window's virus or whatever and I get rid of that old os and put Puppy on it.

Yet I'm still stuck with those crap stickers they put all over the laptops!

Anyway, I've begun removing the labels and I've seen some sticker ideas out there on the internet, but very few to zero Puppy Linux sticker ideas.

So, this is sticker number one...I'll upload it.

If you like it, get rid of the windows thing that is still haunting your laptop/pc, print the sticker on some photo/sticker paper, cut it out and put it on there.

If you come up with some other sticker ideas, post them on this thread, just like we've been doing on the Puppy wallpaper thread...

Anyway, here is sticker one. If/when I come up with some others, I'll post them too. Cool

Oh, and I didn't worry about the size of the file as I normally do for Puppy, since this will be going on the OUTSIDE of your computer.. Cool I kept it relatively big for the detail, so shrink it as you see fit when you put it on your computer.

**Edit: credit where credit is due: afgs is the forum member who came up with those really nice puppy-button-icons; I just put it in the form that it is now. So, thanks to afgs...

...this is just fun.

You know when you see the Windows product key label? Well, if you are like me and now have a computer (or a few) that don't have Windows and certainly don't need a product key you can replace that label with this one.

i went ahead and did the Puppy version of that product key label...it amuses me. Cool Oh, and I started from scratch, leary of any copyright stuff...so, even though they look similar at first glance, they are different, with different colors (clearly) and (of course) with different words.

And if you don't know what I'm talking about, here is a link to a picture of one.

This one is a little more general as far as laptop stickers go...just promoting Puppy.

And, of course, I would be remiss in my Linux promotions if I didn't at least show the website that got me going on this kick. Lots of great Linux/Gnu stickers, but, you'll note, no Puppy Linux stickers.

So, those of you wanting to do your own stickers, could go there and get some ideas and or download the free stickers.

Button-style sticker, more lighting variations, different outlines, added text with drop-down shadow... Cool Resize as you see fit; I kept it relatively big, once again, for the detail of it...you can always shrink it down before you print it out...

...like I said, that one amuses me a great deal...anyway, I recommend going and buying label paper (from just about anywhere) and printing the sticker on it (making sure it is the size you want; a good printer for better quality) then cutting it out (using either scissors or an exacto-knife or whatever you prefer).

Depending on the label I was also thinking of putting a laminate on one size before adhering it, like contact paper or something. Especially in the case of the product key label; I think that would make it look more "authentic."

Those are just my suggestions...I'm sure others may have other ideas about the best ways to create labels from these...

Steves,

Is there any chance you could post a bigger version of the windows-like liscense sticker? An svg version would be even better (I want to put it nice and BIG on my laptop!) Thanks for all the great images.

Jeff
