FESTOOL stickers
« on: March 14, 2017, 05:56 AM »
Good morning all
I believe this morning I will start sanding down the metal cabinets in my shop and painting a light grey color.  I would like to add a bit of pizazz to them with a few large FESTOOL stickers.  The cabinets are about 8' long and 30" high.  I would like to find out if it is possible to obtain a few large stickers to apply to the cabinets.  If anyone has a picture of what they have done in their shop with regards to doing a FESTOOL theme please post pictures

Thank you all.

Nice cabinet. I do like the handles    It must be the green.
I have a row of metal cabinets above my one benches.  They came out of a build I was putting a new kitchen in 10 yrs ago.  A faded blue so I started sanding them down this afternoon to re paint them a nice soft grey.  My thoughts were to acquire a few FESTOOL and FELDER stickers.  I'm not much of a graphics painter so I'm going to have to depend on stickers.  I did consider stopping at one of the local sign shops to see what it would cost to make a few large ones and go across a couple of the doors with the logos. We'll see.

  Thanks for the post

I have tried looking for stickers too, but all Ive been able to find were ones people make themselves on eBay. Seems like Festool hasnt been making as much swap in the last few years as they used to.

Festool's marketing does indeed change over time.

Do they still send out the Festool Fan stickers?  My last two orders came with the black Toolnut stickers.

They have only sent me the ToolNut sticker and the little FestoolProducts sticker on the Systainer. The latter is what I thought they were referring to.

Appears as such.

I'm still not sure who sent out the dark blue "Festool Fan" stickers.  Might not have been the guys at ToolNut.

I must be special...Toolnut usually includes a Festool Fan and Toolnut sticker with my Festool purchases.  I probably have 10-12.

Festool Fan stickers were official outa Germany if I recall correctly and were parceled out to dealers in the tool systainers.

@Shane Holland is the guy to talk to about this as he was the sticker king while at Festool and since he's at ToolNut now can surely give us the skinny on what they're doing as a big FT dealer.

Maybe there is a graphic designer on site here that can make some decals designs.  I know I'd like to get a couple that are about 8x24 to go vertical on a cabinet door

I'll have to check with my buddies in the warehouse to see what determines which stickers get sent. It may be random, or there may be some rhyme and reason. Not sure. Last I knew, we had Festool stickers, but it's possible we ran out. We do usually include a Tool Nut sticker with most/all orders.

I'll post back when I have some info on Monday.

And, yes, the Festool Fan stickers originate from Germany. Not sure if they are still producing those or not.

They were all in a systainer that I bought from an old Festool rep. There is a guy selling them on eBay for $6 plus shipping. I just counted and I've got 120 of them. I guess I know how I'm paying for my cordless Carvex.

The vectored images for the logo are on the net and easily obtainable. Once youve got those you can use Adobe Illustrator to resize them to whatever you want.

I would suggest getting Festool's permission before using their logo as a courtesy. It's easy enough to ping Tyler on here.

When I was at Festool we had clear stickers with the Festool logo that used to be put in all of the Systainers. I think it became a lot of work for the warehouse and was ultimately ended. But those were my favorites. The logo was about 5-6" long on them. So, I don't think you can get those anymore.

Why would anyone need permission to make some stickers for themselves? I wasnt suggesting to sell them, that would be illegal as that logo is copyrighted.

I was told that we include stickers as we have them. So, if we didn't include a Festool sticker, it's because we were out of them at the time.

Ben, like I said, just as a courtesy. Legally, it's not a requirement for personal use.
