    Default stencil logo?

    i dont know which section to post this in, but as it has to do with badminton i thought the general forum might suffice.

    i was thinking the other day of using a Sharpie marker to draw a logo on my white badminton racket strings.. and after searching the forum, i didn't come up with a lot.. some people said that it might lower string lifespan, but whatever.

    my question to you guys is: if you have a logo on your racket (besides the manufacturers' ones), what logo/design did you use? and even if you didn't have a logo/design on your racket, what would you use if you were to have one? (it has to be simple enough to resemble the picture if it were painted criss crossing strings)

    the colors i'm working with are black, blue, red and green.. but i dont plan to use any more than 2 of those

    the only special one i saw before was one with someone's Chinese last name painted on.. it looked pretty cool

    My friend and I painted our Last names on our racquets "Yip" but the problem was that it was TOO fancy.... so it was hard to see

    looks like there's many different things to put on your racket personally i haven't settled with anything yet... so any suggestions would be helpful for making my decision (i'm trusting people on the internet to give me advice on what to draw on my badminton racket ) if anybody has any pictures of cool designs or their own designs, feel free to post them up

    update:

    just now, i printed out a yonex stencil card, and drew in with a sharpie marker onto my AT800DE. it looked great. i was going to do another design, but since i couldn't think one up, and i am considering restringing my racket (strings too tight for plastic shuttles) anyway, i just used the yonex design.

    i'll report on how the Shapie marker preforms tomorrow. unfortunately, tomorrow's session will be the training session with my coach.. hopefully he wont be mad at me if i make all his feather birdies go pink

    Great, report back with your findings. =)

    I want to draw in my last name on the strings now. It'll be so fun. Lol.

    Or even draw in a pair of evil eyes.

    According to USRSA manuals, the Pilot Super Colour Marker is safe to use on strings (i.e., doesn't deteriorate them).

    From my own experience, the Pilot's ink doesn't show on shuttles as much compared to stencil ink. But, as someone else's commented, it doesn't appear as bright compared to stencil ink. But, you do have more options for colours.

    haha i had an idea about stencils last night. It would be cool to have like a weapon on your string cause your racket is like your weapon. It can either be the tip of a sword or like draw a black line(extending from your shaft) and then some red line/feather things and a diamonish blade at the end. It would look like an old chinese spear or something ^_^ You would use red sharpie for the feathers, a silver sharpie for the blade, and a sharpie for the shaft of the weapon depending on what color the shaft of your racket is. anymore ideas?
