    I voted but maybe a request... Are you limited to two colors (white/black)? It would be nice to see the minnow in greyish/black tones to make it look more like a shark.

    And I guess I have to ask what this label will be used for? I know I don't have a location for a unique shaped sticker that you are asking us to vote on. I mean I could strategically place it on the case but yours look more like something you plan to put into production on a specific case design.

    And are you planning on selling them at all? I know I'd love to have one myself.

    I think that depends on the price. I know I won't pay $10 US for a single logo, maybe ~$2 US +shipping. Will they be made of aluminum or plastic?

    I'm not trying to shoot down the idea of selling these but if that is offered, it should be reasonable. To be honest, I wouldn't mind a black T-Shirt (both with and without a pocket) with the logo silk screened (not iron on) over the pocket area, maybe a small variety for everyone to choose from. That would be worth $15 US + shipping to me. I don't know if there would be a large demand for it, large being 10,000 pieces, but it could make a nice little profit and some free advertising.

    Maybe include them with purchases for a limited time.. Move some FreeNAS merch.. I'd still buy one if it's pricier.. I guess the TrueNAS is branded differently so.. Will a square sticker be avail the title indicates it's for a future product so I'm not sure if a rectangle or or square stickers would be available etc..

    I like #1 best.
    And I would totally buy one of those as a sticker.

    Though I would prefer a logo with less wasted space.
    Something like this:

    If I were a betting man I'd think the design is for the next attempt at putting out a FreeNAS machine, maybe this time with ECC RAM.
