Windshield Banner. Help me decide.

Option 1. Matte black backround with "PORSCHE" cut out


Option 2. Same color as the car (Pastel Beige) with "PORSCHE" cut out


Option 3 "PORSCHE" in the same color as the car.

I like Option 1, would be better if it were tint instead of solid though.

I made mine using adobe illustrator, the vinyls was cut at a local print shop. Cost about $20 but it is not made from tint. I'd share the AI file if you want to have one made.

thanks - it's about the same money to have one hand cut at the tint shop - it wasn't about the money though, as much as the time - i have my plate pretty full right now, and going to the tint shop wasn't on my list, as it means taking down the mirror, radar detector and fastrack pass

but i guess that's what i'll do

issue with option 1 is tat it wont do the job it is designed to do (block the sun) and will add a potential strobe effect. May look good but performance detrimental IMO

I would say NONE ... it's got a badge
If you must, I think #1 is best with the matte background.
Pics would be nice if/when you do it.

Option #4: None of the above - a clean (no lettering) tinted one.
