Has there ever been a Cardiacs sticker, for bumpers or otherwise?

I want one, just like this:

I quite like that, but it would be nice to have it with the font used with the LMAAHATWWW picture like on this http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j315/ ... nner07.jpg and it would look especially nice on Rolf, my black car.

It's heresy but I'm not crazy about the ALMAAHATWWW logo myself!
Still I wear the ugly t-shirt, you've got to.
So, one of each kind please!

If it's typographic confession time, i'm not keen on that one they use at the moment, official-wise and up top^, it's a bit Neville Brody to my eyes.
Whereas, as we've already agreed elsewhere, the ABC logo is a work of balance, poise and timeless perfection.

The original type that Lol likes and schlep doesn't is in fact an early working for Comic Sans, done when the designer was pissed out of his head.

I think we had a 'show us your car' thread going for awhile - a loong time ago!? I'll see if I can find it, then post a photo.
It's just a bashed up old Honda, nothing too fantastical.

I paid £5 for it on eBay a couple of years ago (from Oregon of all places) but I've seen it go for upwards of £50.

yeah, i answered my own question - went thru the other thread - £60+ - that's just stupid money

If anyone here's still desperate for it, I wouldn't ask anywhere near that price - could never do that to a fan... will check condition and advise if anyone PMs me. To justify this, recording wise, I only really care about the classic line up Cardiacs output (personal taste & all that!)
