Subject Re: Supported by ACS logo
Date Thu, 12 May 2016 22:30:17 GMT
I like your idea of getting stickers made of the ones with just the
'powered by' and the monkey.  In that case, I like the fact that there is
limited text.  I think #7 with just the 'powered by' text in the blue
bottom would also make awesome stickers.  đź‘Ť
