source of frame materials label photos?

When I am scouting around for bikes, I can usually identify a Reynolds or Columbus-style stickers at 50 paces.
but i often catch glimpses of more obscure frame stickers that I can't ID.

like the attached. It seems to end in "LAN" which could be ALAN?

If I had images to compare the glimpses to, I could probably zero in on the material without having to ask the seller to shoot a snap of the label etc etc.

does anyone know of any such caches of images for non-reynolds and columbus stickers?

not ALAN, it's not one I recognize, but ALAN didn't make tubing sets and in any case it's not any logo they used. I can usually find pics of tubing decals by searching the archives here, on the CR pages and on Wooljersey and Bulgier's site. No one clearinghouse for all decal images that I know of, but that would be a good thing for Velobase to compile.
