I created this self-promotion coaster, (or promo-coaster), as I like items that people receive in the mail to have a function, not as a bit of paper that gets put amongst the other unwanted mail and chucked in the bin. It’s also because I love a cuppa tea when I’m working at my desk, I’m sure I’m not the only one. I hope they all make it onto the desks of some future clients.
Some time in August I will be getting on my motorbike and touring up the west coast, visiting places like, Fort William, Skye, Lochcarron, Applecross, Gairloch and many more places. So I thought I’d make my own Scotland badge for my travels. Using the American highway signs like the famous route 66 (that I hope to do, one day) I used a mackintosh style font rather than a Celtic style font and put a big saltire under it. As my bike is a dark metallic blue the white sticker works well. I used my trusty craft cutter to produce the stickers.
