    Hi all, so as some of you may know I've started a Instagram Page called Vintage Vdubb or @vintage_vdubb basically just shares the love and shares peoples rides out there it currently has over 17000 followers and I have decided to start selling stickers that are in a pretty cool vintage style. There is two designs (Pic below) I'm taking preorders for anyone who would like to buy them they are $5 each with free delivery. Just PM me if you're interested in making a order.

    Yes I did find that out, I'm not trying to be a business or compete in any way with any businesses, I'm just creating a vw society on social media.
    I'm not a very good skater so I'm better off not being on that thin ice;)

    Good point Oldman. Been through that quagmire. Even a small variation on a trade name is a no, no!

    ….would just hate to see you litigated against, that's all…
    Lots of folks out there that are sensitive about their business name…
    Your call, at the end of the day.

    Been through it also and my advice to you would be to tread very carefully or at least ask permission to use any names or images if they are the same / similar to someone else's , anything that is trademarked can land you in the shit if you do the wrong thing. Great idea but maybe look at a name change

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I have sent out a friendly email to any similar names just to make sure it is okay. I have also run a trademark search and it came up all clean. I really don't wanna get involved in any legal mess, to be honest I didn't think of it to start with. Just started up the page to unite vw owners.

    Cheers Matt
