Well after some not great so great experiences I finally found the right quality at an affordable price locally. Good quality and price, and I think they look great.
The majority of feedback said Greek letters on black background so here they are. These are in the poular 2" x 6" size, small enough for a window but big enough for a bumper etc.
Email me through the website for payment info, I only have a couple hundred and I don't want to receive your money and then tell you I'm out. Once I receive your email I will send you payment details and verify with you when it's received and shipped etc.
To make it simple, and get my money back with envelopes, postage etc. I am selling them in sets of three (3) for $5. Get one for Grandma, mail some to the Brady Bunch headquarters, slap one on Hillary's Mercedes!

Molon labe

(mo-lone lah-veh)

Two little words. With these two words, two concepts were verbalized that have lived for nearly two and a half Millennia. They signify and characterize both the heart of the Warrior, and the indomitable spirit of mankind. From the ancient Greek, they are the reply of the Spartan General-King Leonidas to Xerxes, the Persian Emperor who came with 600,000 of the fiercest fighting troops in the world to conquer and invade little Greece, then the center and birthplace of civilization as we know it. When Xerxes offered to spare the lives of Leonidas, his 300 personal bodyguards and a handful of Thebans and others who volunteered to defend their country, if they would lay down their arms, Leonidas shouted these two words back.
Molon Labe! (mo-lone lah-veh)

They mean, “Come and get them!” They live on today as the most notable quote in military history. And so began the classic example of courage and valor in its dismissal of overwhelming superiority of numbers, wherein the heart and spirit of brave men overcame insuperable odds. Today, there lies a plaque dedicated to these heroes all at the site. It reads: “Go tell the Spartans, travelers passing by, that here, obedient to their laws we lie.”

We have adopted this defiant utterance as a battle cry in our war against oppression because it says so clearly and simply towards those who would take our arms.

It signifies our determination to not strike the first blow, but also to not stand mute and allow our loved ones, and all that we believe in and stand for, to be trampled by men who would deprive us of our God-given – or natural, if you will – rights to suit their own ends.

-Well it will depend on several thing, do I get my money back or did I end up losing some?
-Demand for it
-You can always buy a gun, Molon Labe stickers don't happen everyday... ;)

Picked mine up today, EXCELLENT PACKAGING. "Please Do Not bend" is very large and clear on the envelope, yet my apartment mail-hack crammed it into my box. Fortunately the notecards included allowed the stickers to stay safe.

Excellent Size

Excellent Packaging,

All,
I hope you felt you received good quality and price in one deal. I myself have wanted this sticker and it just begged to be made. I wasn't sure I would even break even, but I was willing to take that chance. I'm halting sales as of this post. I don't want to oversell, and I have quite a few orders by mail coming in still. I may look at this in the future again and after the dust settles I may have a few left. Best of all were the replies "What's Molon Labe mean?", followed by an explanation and then an order!
Molon Labe!

Just got home and found mine on my reloading bench. Problem was, the envolope was open and there were only 2 stickers inside. The wife swears it came that way, but I'm thinking checking the rear window of the van will solve the mystery. :rolleyes:
In all seriousness, great work on these, a bargain at twice the price. Anyone who held back on the first batch had better jump on board for the next batch if there is one.

Let us remember who the Spartans were; the most boring and violent of all the Greek city-states. They lived together in infamously homosexual "messes", and every so many years would cull their slave population by a certain percentage in a ritual massacre. This kept the slaves in terror....and eager to stay off the list. The Spartans could obviously fight and were brave as hell. But that was the ancient world- it was cruel beyond what we can imagine, was based on a slave economy, and man-boy love was accepted as fairly common (I am not gay by the way). For those of us still fighting the civil war, or politically polarized, we might note Greece as an example; joining forces against the Persians was the exception. Those people were so busy fighting each other they finally self-destructed.

Most heroes are flawed- as a hero for the most part is a regular person who "steps up" during crisis. These guys were professionals who knew they would die & didn't take the surrender option. Is it important to remind us that during their time it was culturally acceptable to have slaves or treat women as second class etc? Let's erase the Alamo and mention of George Washington and Thomas jefferson from the books then....
Not to be insulting, but you remind me of the kid who wouldn't skateboard or ride bikes with the other kids by proclaiming "that's gay or stupid".
So did you want to order some stickers and support the board & help me get reimbursed or not? :D
