Sticker Envy!

I opened the mail last week and waiting for me was little gem!!!   Thanks to Jamoosh at Last Mile Lounge for the "You've Been Chicked!" sticker.  The only problem is, Michael is gonna wear it around the house and apply it all kinds of stuff now, not just running.
Speaking of the ol' gal, we've been talking lately about coming up with our own sticker design for 50after40 using "Be Great Today".  Plus, Chis K of the Manly Runner told  me I wasn't a "cool" blogger unless I gave stuff away ... so this is my first attempt. 

I wanted something cool like Miss Zippy's sticker, or original like One Crazy Penguin's sticker, or hilarious & ingenious like all of Matty Run Run's stickers!  Ya know, something that would stand out! So we came up with 4 different ideas. 

And I'd like y'all to decide which one to print! 

These are only initial designs.  (Once a winner is selected, I would really like to enlist the help of someone much more artistic than myself to add some color and clean up the design a little.) 

So here are the four choices ...

Please let me know in your comments which one we should go with ... and if they all suck, I'll go back to the drawing board!  (Yes, #A is a hand-drawn running hot dog) Please let me know which direction to go ... the future logo of 50after40 is counting on you!!!  Thanks for your help!
... be great today!

  2. Might I suggest registering the domain www.50after40.com and pointing it to your blogger account and then putting that on the stickers instead? It will look cleaner and more professional and will only cost you ~$10/year. Plus it will help you tell people your blog address. With blogger your old address still works so you lose nothing.

    If you have questions let me know, I honestly think it is worth the $10, especially if you are going to print anything.

    I personally like B for readability and minimalist reasons.

    I just had some printed up for my blog and I went with a white on black background just simply because I wanted it clean and easy to read. I will be posting mine on my blog sometime this week, but here is a sneak peak at what I did - http://bit.ly/hWAKZB

  7. My friend is a graphic designer, and he would like B I think because it is a little bit of a cleaner look - so the viewers eyes know exactly what to focus on.

    D is my 2nd favorite, there is almost too much going on with it though...

  8. I vote D but it may be true that B would be easier to read.
