    If you're going to make a DC Badminton stencil, it has to be like this, otherwise it's not it. :D

    how's this? I made it two nights ago, and painted it on. This is what it looks like after one 4 hour session. The only sad thing is that when you flip the racket, its backwards. But the front side looks cool! Does Sir Panda like it?

    It looks cramped. Perhaps you can get more space by stencilling it with the frame on its side (like what Yonex does)?

    That was a speed stencil, I made the stencil and inked it in about 10 minutes. I'll make a better looking, more planned out one this week. Maybe experiment with the negative color effect, but the c is far too close to the triangle edge on this stencil, I promise to make a better looking one and post an update.

    Are you spraying the paint on?

    If so, how about using a permanent ink marker instead? That may be more accurate and allow finer control. And it should be more permanent and not come off onto the shuttlecock.

    Can someone try just the "dc" lettering as a logo:D? The triangle looks very odd!

    There're special 'bottle's' for this kind of stuff.
    And permanent marker will transfer to the shuttlecock...

    Spraypaint and markers are generally not a very good idea because of all the solvents in there. Most markers you buy are water-based

    "Power Power" is the racket line name. DC Badminton is the company name.

    LOL... My bad... :D dc with triangle is a bit too complicated. Simple abstract will be better in a way if you get what I mean.

    Just a plain DC though reminds me too much of the shoe company. I like the triangle in it. Though I'll try out a bigger "just the lowercase d and c" stencil on my HPS once I get it strung up again. I also found a pretty good use for those clip thingies that attach the paper label on the prestrung racket bed on store bought rackets. They hold my stencils in place pretty well.

    Why not make the Logo more like DCB. when applied and flipped around, wont it look practically the same on each side?

    Well, DC is almost the same when flipped around as well. But sir dink likes his logo so I will work on that. maybe a second color for the triangle...
