I like old logos and recreated each one of these so they can be cut from vinyl. I’m curious if there is any interest in stickers like this. Most of these are roughly 5” across the widest point, I could sell these individually for about $8 each, shipped to the US. These are examples, some are still in business (like Stanley & Craftsman) and I cannot legally sell them; the rest I believe are all expired trademarks.

This is after I cut and “weed” (remove the unwanted parts) the stickers, they are on a paper backer.

Same sticker applied to cabinet.

Nice job. But when I read the title of your post, I thought of THESE kind of stickers.

Of course, it helps that I was with Snap-on Tools for about 7 years :-)

If there were demand for color I could do color but I like the old time logos and most of them are monotone. These are from a time before computers, before copiers, if they needed another copy many times they were hand drawn. The logos lack consistency. My versions are a snapshot, how the logo looked at a specific time. They come from advertising, from catalogs, and even correspondence. In some cases I spent hours cleaning up and recreating these. I did it for my personal use, because I love the old time machines and tools but thought there might be others who like them too.

Monotone is fine with me. If you ever do a bluegrass logo let me know.
Thanks

My office is, I am pretty sure, in the former Belknap hardware buildings.

Nice work. I like the old tool company logos. Don’t care much for stickers on my tool boxes though. I would have to put them on the wife’s refrigerator.

The full logo has too much detail for a vinyl decal so I simplified. I made one 5×5 but there is still too much detail (small letters) for a small sticker. I could do these at 10” or larger, up to 15-22” depending on color and they should be fine.
Black, white, navy, royal, red, pink, or brown vinyl.
