2 NEW Pannier Sticker Sets Available NOW!
The world of stickers has just become very exciting! Last week I posted some photos of some new designs to compliment the new GSA Rallye on a number of GSA fan Facebook pages and there was lots of interest! Not only was there lots of immediate interest in those, there were many requests for stickers to compliment the stunning GSA Triple Black coming in at the same time, it seems that I created something which whetted people's appetite! I launched the Triple Black this evening and I received one order from Norway even before I have added it to the website. If there is something you'd like on your bike's luggage and you can't see it on the website, drop me a line, I can help you to make your wheels unique. :). Exciting times!

Go Wild and Let Your Bike Luggage Roar!
I am very pleased to be able to reveal my new pannier stickers. They have been created to fit BMW R1200GSA luggage, but can be modified to fit most makes and models of hard luggage, I will just need accurate dimensions. Originally created as a full wrap, this required boxes to be stripped down of all fixings and rivets by the customer, before being sent to the 'printer' for wrapping. This is understandably a costly and time consuming process, so I was asked if I could create stickers, that would fit the panels and cut around the brackets and plastic inserts. The stickers are designed and artworked by me, before being produced by a reliable and trustworthy printer, an expert in high quality vehicle wraps and exhibition graphics. They are produced on easy-to-affix bubble-free material and are available as a gloss or matt finish and I am advised, will retain their high quality finish and not fade for at least 7 years! I will continue to add more designs so please check out my website: MC Pannier Sets regularly. If you can't see what you want or have an idea for a bespoke design for yourself (or a special gift), please don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you soon and hearing how you would like to personalise your own bike's luggage. Go wild and let your bike's luggage roar!

Stand Out From the Crowd
All vehicles tend to look very similar these days. Why not personalise your 'wheels' in this case, your 2 wheels, but reflecting your personality, interests or passions through bespoke, wrapped panniers? The photos below show recently wrapped panniers of a BMW R1200 GS Adventure, but the same can be applied to other makes of luggage and even other vehicles. Graham's interest is in WW1 battlefields and his passion in Belgium Beers. He was going to get his panniers covered in black and I said, 'Why not do something more striking?' I came up with an idea, showed him the sketches and created the artwork. This weekend was the first out and his bike met with plenty of interest and admiring comments! Interested in doing something similar? Not only do the wraps protect your precious boxes, they can be peeled off if you decide to sell, leaving pristine boxes underneath. Contact me and we can have a chat and come up with some ideas. It doesn't have to be a 'picture'. It could be a flag, badge or even texture, like carbon fibre. What are you waiting for. Get in touch now and we'll see what we can do.

Print Design in unusual places?
I was recently commissioned to create a bespoke design for a motorcyclist with a passion for visiting Ypres in Belgium for it's World War I history and it's iconic beer! He wanted to wrap the panniers on his bike, for protection, thinking at first of wrapping them in black. I suggested that he share his passion and came up with the following design which he loved! They are currently in production and I can't wait to see them 'in the flesh'. If you have any ideas, or thoughts for utilising illustration in an unusual way and would like to discuss it further with me, please feel free to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you!
