Where to find bike decals/stickers?
 
I just got a new Craftsman stackable tool cabinet and of course it needs to be decked out with bike decals and stickers. :D

So where would I find such things? Do companies like Trek, Specialized, Fox, Easton, etc. sell or give away such things? Do bike shops get them as promo items and maybe I can ask at the LBS?

You can try your LBS or write a letter/email to the companies you want stickers from they just may send you them for free. I write companies all the time to compliment or complain about there products just because they send you free stuff and coupons for there products. I have received a free bike seat, t shirts, and all sorts of free goodies doing this.

I've seen one LBS with a sticker display case with some of those brands for sale. If you really want Fox, you could head to a store like PacSun and pic up as sheet of them. Look for a race or event with vendor tents - you'll find them there to.

My LBS has a display case full of stickers. I think they give them away with the purchase of certain items...

They come with alot of stuff, my cannondale was supposed to come with a giant one, and didnt. The Bike Stores either sell them or keep them. Notice when you peek in the shop area of a shop that all the toolboxes are covered in stickers. Keep emailing customer service at bike compaines and they will send you stuff.

No they wont.No all.I asked felt,cannondale and trek and they all had the same answer.Go to your dealer.

I've just emailed about 10 diff companies.. I'll see what I can come up with.

djbowen1 08-05-03 07:49 AM

Cannondale said no, i replied next time i'll buy a trek, and trek said they are on the way.

hahaha.. 'next time i'll buy a trek'

Thats a beauty. But as if you would buy a Trek over a Cannondale. Seriously.

djbowen1 08-05-03 08:11 AM

I would love a loaded Trek 5900 or whatever next years top of the line is.

Aggressor 08-05-03 08:16 AM

But consider the equivalent Cannondale, whatever it may be.

Some companies don't want to see their name plastered over resprayed walmart bikes so don't produce decals. In the UK one of the MTB mags seems to have a set of free stickers every few issues.

just send an email through their support link. that usually works. ive done it a few times and never had a problem. now we only have GF and Treks in our family, so I dont know about other joints

djbowen1 08-05-03 10:50 AM

I see people with tons of them all the time. Roof rack fairings are a good place for them.

I scored some from Gary Fisher and Trek today :)
