This time of year it's easy to burn out at work. But when we found the cleaners vacuuming around a sleeping Jamer we knew we were working the little fella too hard.
MBUK's long serving Art Editor was suffering from exhaustion after putting the finishing touches to our latest sticker sheet.
When we woke him up he was a babbling wreck. After some disturbing ramblings (most of which involved the actress Angela Lansbury) he pointed to an empty space left on the sheet and collapsed again.
Ignoring Jamer, we came up with a brilliant idea. If it's you lot who are going to be enjoying these pieces of sticky, vinyl gold then why not let you design them?!
Got an image you've always wanted on your bike? Have something you and your riding mates like to shout at each other? This is your chance to share it with the nation.
Stick to designs using the MBUK name or your own ideas for logos and slogans. Don't rip off other designs - we won't be able to use them. The winning entries will be printed and take their place in sticker history.
Email your masterpieces, ideally created on Photoshop or Illustrator at 300dpi, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you include your name, age and full address. The victors will be announced in an up-coming issue.
You can also post your designs on the forum here, but make sure you send us a copy too.
NB. No Jamers were hurt during the creation of this blog. Well, we poked him a bit and Kim put houmous in his ear but that was it.
Now for the science bit...
