Title: Spotted Cards Suggestions & Feedback
Post by: Rev on February 11, 2013, 10:47:41 PM
Just an idea for now, but if anyone wants to use them feel free to. Though there might be changes coming down the pike.

Updated 2/21/13 to reflect the latest changes.

As we're always trying to ramp up our efforts to get all the cool trucks and people into our club here I thought we might consider leaving calling cards on vehicles we spot. I came up with a bit of a template that looks like this:

(http://streetquest.net/photos/spottedcards3.jpg)

And now in color:
(http://streetquest.net/photos/azxc/spottedcards3color.jpg)

I've added this to an Avery template that's compatible with nearly any version of Word and Open Office and can be printed over on Avery Business Card templates including:
Compatible Avery Products:
15871, 18871, 27871, 27881, 27882, 27883, 28371, 28865, 28873, 28876, 28877, 28878, 38871, 38873, 38876, 5371, 5376, 5377, 55871, 55876, 5870, 5871, 5872, 5873, 5874, 5876, 5877, 5878, 5882, 5911, 8271, 8371, 8372, 8376, 8377, 8471, 8476, 8571, 8865, 8870, 8871, 8872, 8873, 8874, 8875, 8876, 8877, 8878, 8879

And of course other off brand brand products that are compatible with Avery's 3.5"x2" cards lined in 5x2 per sheet should also work.

Here are the printable templates:
Black and white: Download (http://streetquest.net/photos/azxcspotted.doc)
Color: Download (http://streetquest.net/photos/azxc/azxcspottedc.doc)

If that doesn't download permanently, you should be able to do a right click > Save Target As... download.

Also each spot has text labeled {Type Your Name Here} - If you do a find/replace in Word with your user name then it will automatically generate a sheet of ten cards personalized for you.

Hope that helps our spotting/recruiting efforts ;D

You need to promote the other websites as well.  If I was a Frontier or Titan guy i could care less about the Xterra website.  Let me do the marketing and sponsorship stuff would ya!

No worries I've got a cool idea to be all inclusive in the design. I'm reusing the sills from the shirt and making a new one for the Titan. Unfortunately it looks like I wasn't focused last night (hmmmm...  ::) ) so I didn't sync the file to my cloud space properly. If today isn't too busy then I might be able to just remake it real quick, otherwise it might be tomorrow because I don't get home today until about 11.

Hopefully it'll come out good ;D

OK here's the next model:

I've got a meeting I'm heading into now, so comment and I'll review it tomorrow. ;D

Is there a different leader for each site? Sorry im still new so im trying to learn? I work in Marketing so it is kind of my area... I think the logo should be almost the same as our logo adding in the star and the Arizona Flag. Too bad we dont have a main website that has a link to all 3 websites.
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on February 12, 2013, 04:42:00 PM
Do we put our real name or our handle, that's the question.
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Rev on February 12, 2013, 11:08:57 PM
I was thinking handle name so if someone joined up from the card they'd be able to see who it was on here that spotted them ;D

Right now there's only one "club" just multiple websites owned by the same board. So technically Hammer is the president of everything, but if membership in the other areas increased who knows what could happen. But all of the websites come back to this same forum. We wanted to change the cards to reflect all the different web sites so indicate to other vehicles that this club isn't just for Xterras but that especially Frontiers and Titans are welcome. (Now all we need is azpathfinderclub.com and azarmadaclub.com ;D )

I'm also thinking the state symbol is missing something important. The Nissan logo alone in the Arizona outline just looks too plane, especially with the other one right above it... maybe I should throw in the star and symbol without the actual "AZXC" in it. Kind of like the forum logo when it's transitioning between logos. I think I'll try that tomorrow and see how it looks. Too late now sorry ;D

I think the first set of tracks were better too... Yeah I'm gonna swap those in now that I have the file back.
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on February 13, 2013, 12:32:38 AM
leave the space blank, then we can write AZXC, AZFC, or AZTC depending on the truck we spot.  I'll just put AZXC on all of mine, but dont tell marcin. 
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Rev on February 13, 2013, 02:00:28 PM
OK, made those changes I mentioned and it came out like this.

Great idea fellas, I always see cool trucks driving around!
Title: Re: Spotted Cards

The doc file template has now been updated with the new design. I'll see about carrying some of these with me for when I spot a cool truck ;D

How difficult is it to do a full color version?
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Rev on February 15, 2013, 08:29:47 AM
I can do a full color one if you'd like. I was focusing on black and white since I figured that'd be cheaper for most of members to print, but for those of us who go all out... ;D

Let me see about splashing some color on that and I'll post up some samples.

Any preferences as to the colors to use for the lettering?
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on February 17, 2013, 07:55:30 PM
I think the lettering in black would be good, just wanted the full color logo.

Rev good meeting you today!  Nice job on all this stuff for the club!
Title: Re: Spotted Cards
Post by: Rev on February 18, 2013, 09:58:53 AM
Definitely it was! Shame Avi was busy, but I'm hopeful to make the chili cook off in March ;D

And sure thing, I have fun with this kind of stuff as long as I've got time. Yesterday and today has been a little hectic, but I'll see if I can get that color logo in place here soon.

Sorry I missed you, didn't know you guys were meeting up and I had an itch to pop off a couple rounds.  Also, my gf had yet to ever shoot so I wanted to give her some trigger time. 
Title: Re: Spotted Cards Suggestions & Feedback
Post by: Rev on February 20, 2013, 11:30:55 AM
Finally had some calm at work to make the color switch over. For an extra splash I made the tire track a little brown to signify it was in dirt and not pavement ;D

If it looks good I'll throw it into a .doc template and update the OP.

perfect.  How do I create a card template like you did with the other version? 
Title: Re: Spotted Cards

The OP has been updated with the color image and a downloadable color template ;D

Nice! ;D
Now Nissan's all over the state are going to end up with those stuck to their trucks and it'll be all my fault ;D

The template is in .doc format for Microsoft Word, but if you don't have word then OpenOffice.org can open those up just fine ;D

Download and print them. I do a page a month.

Post by: Jo-BOB on February 02, 2015, 04:11:39 PM
ahhh I was thinking we had some ones on nice card stock or something. I'll just put a bit smiley face on a peice of paper and stick it under the windshield wiper.

Ditto, I usually print about a page a month as well but these past months I've been slacking.

I've been leaving AZXC cards lately, any new members get a card on their vehicle?
