What happened to the RED on the new logo ?
It looks anemic compared to the Craftsman Red !

This is Totally Unacceptable, and we, the MBOA
(Multiple Bolens Owners of America) demand color vibrancy that is
equal to, or better than any other listed logo.

First MTD, now anemic red…..really Andy ????

Don't blame Andy. It's a scan of a decal with the protective paper still on. I didn't want to sacrafice the decal. BUT you must admit it IS better than having MTD on it.

Now hold on…..

As a “Purest” I can certainty understand you protectionist views on
Logo preservation. However, I as a rejuvenator have no such feelings
toward printed vinyl sheets. Since I have plenty of new / unused logo’s
I will gladly offer to sacrifice one for the good of the forum.

How do I go about making this sacrifice that will free all of us from the
trauma of continuously looking at that anemic red ?

Just mount the decal on something , remove the top layer and scan it. Send it to Andy. You may have to downsize it after you scan it but try sending it as is. Or maybe post it here and he could copy from here. The reason I didn't want to peel the paper was I only have two of these, one for the snowblower I repainted and the other for the reel mower still under way.
Boy, tough crowd!:D
This afternoon you guys thought it was great?:D

sixchows...

No problem
Why do I need to remove the back layer ?
Can't I just remove the top (front) layer and scan it ?

Depends, maybe. But if you got any of them from any of the 3-4 places I got mine, the protective top layer is heavier than the decal itself and when you try to peel it off the decal will come off the backing paper. These decals are kinda thin to leave a nice fine edge when applied so they have a tendency to wrinkle, and then you'll find yourself trying to hold down the corners as you peel the top and then you'll find the areas you've touched don't have much adhesion. Ask me how I know?!:D

Maybe Andy could adjust the color with his photo editing program. Or he might turn it purple because you made him re do it and leave town on work for a couple of weeks. How will you cope. Better order those chill pills now.
