What to do with an blank canvas?
« on: November 17, 2017, 07:43:28 PM »

I have a few plain/blank bats after winter refurbs

What stickers is it ethical to put on them if their provenance is unknown?

Not for resale purely for my enjoyment

Personally I hate bats that are stickered up as something they're not and I don't like all the fake stickers that are available.  I also find it depressing when brands sell their legit stickers off as it means any joker can pass off some piece of crap as a genuine ........
Therefore, I suggest you design and get printed stickers of your own. Alternatively, if you lads' school has a large enough laser cutter design a logo and have them engraved. It only takes a few minutes each.

Maybe contact millichamp and Hall they do bat stickers but it's for the charity prostate cancer? That way you have something that will be rare to find and you'll be giving your money to a good cause?

Just leave them blank?
There's alway "something" about a plain bat :)

Some great tips.

I really liked the M&H charity stickers idea until I priced it up for three bats
In 30 years of cricket the stamped, self designed stickers & wood burned bats I have seen do not require many fingers to count
Staying blank is also a good idea especially with plain gloves & pads.

I've always fancied a hydro dip being done on a bat....
