Decals for Motors

So, Motionking motors come without a decal on the back side, where the Vexta sticker is on their motors. Anyone have a design for a MechMate logo to put on the motors to keep the dust out? Suggestions on what material to get it printed on?

I did a search and went through all 5 pages of results. Just looking for something like an MM in the same typeface as the logo, or something along those lines. Also was looking for advice on what to print on, since the motors get warm. It seems like most adhesives for vinyl will break down going through a regular heat and cool cycle.

Having trouble opening that file on my phone, will try on my computer later. I read through the official page before I asked this question, because the MechMate logo won't scale well to the back of a stepper motor. So I was looking for something like the MM that appears by the address of the website when I load it in a normal browser, as it is a better fit, scaling wise, to the space I have. I'll have all the normal logos, just wanted a little extra branding. :-P

Do you mean something like this? I'm not trying to change the official wordmark but just trying to help illustrate what Zouave is asking. At least I think that's what he means.

Yes, exactly! Gerald, and Mike, would something like that be acceptable?

I have no problems with that, but I don't have any say on it - it all belongs to Mike now.

As far as I am concerned, you will always have a say, if for no other reason than my respect and admiration for your work in putting this together and developing the MechMate for us.

Seperate the two M's on the one with MechMate on it and I think that will look best and also be a good Branding item.

Mike: Is it ok if I post the .dxf or .ai of this once you accepted the art?

Here are those files...enjoy.

Zouave: Silk screened on foil would do it. Could also be engraved lamacoid with vhb tape?

why wouldn't you just print it on a wrapping cast martial??
that will hold up to the heat no problem, a car in the sun gets hotter than the motors will.
