    As a Razer user/fan, I'd love seeing the three-snaked-logo on everything. Saw 4x4s, cars and motocycles having the Razer logo as a decal and I was drooling. I even used the Razer logo as my phone's wallpaper and lock screen. Have you guys ever just sitting around and suddenly POOF! An idea came to mind and you started crafting things like keychains, etc. If you do, please share to this thread! :D

    However, first question before anyone reply, is hand painting the Razer logo on something you craft can get you in copyright-related problems?

    If it is for personal use I don't think it will get you in to copyright issues but it is always better to get it confirmed by the company. I am sure @Razer|Technokat can answer this question. I have made boot animations for android and have distributed it here and nothing popped up regarding copyrights and so on. I think you will have to make profit by using the name/logo without permission to get in to any such trouble any thing else is just a free advertisement for the brand(at least that is what I think) :D

    Well, crafting something should definitely for personal use only, considering how bad it might be :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    I've already posted on the profile page of @Razer|Technokat and linking this thread.

    Or am I asking him the wrong way?

    Lets wait for his response now :) Do update us with the response because many people will have this same doubt.

    Well, first of all Razer would have to be aware of you doing it in the first place. And the odds of that are basically so slim as to be non-existent. But that aside, you'd probably be safe doing it for your own personal use. It's been 15 years since I took my IP law course, and I'm no lawyer, but as long as you're not selling stickers or other swag with the Razer logo on it, you should be fine.

    I'm very glad to hear that!
    I don't want to get myself or others into copyright problems.

    Need a high resolution file so I can have a Wallpaper // decal print and have a huge logo on the wall. That would be awesome right?!

    That would be awesome! It could be, like, THE ULTIMATE RAZER ROOM!

    Hey guys, I'm not gonna let this thread die YET.
    I wanna share a few things I've created.

    The first item would be my own Razer phone cover for my Xperia ZL

    The second item is my own headphone holder

    Sorry for no step-by-step pictures for the headphone holder, but both items were created using the same method, the masking tape and paint method. The phone cover was originally an old boring cover and the headphone holder was actually wood blocks.

    No, I do not intend to sell these items. Just wanna show some support for Razer. Cheers!

    Wow, your headphone holder looks amazing!! All the green goodness ;) Maybe someday I'll get to DIY-ing some Razer stuff.

    Hey @battleshark97 ,
    Might I recommend looking into vinyl decaling? I had an entire thing going on here about a vinyl wrap for the Razer Nabu, but the same procedure can be done to make a custom decal of the Razer snake logo. This would be my option of choice.

    Thanks! Let your imagination run free!

    I've read about vinyl decaling for a while now and I'll try it out when I have the time (currently in college now, with limited time and material). Thank you very much for the advice!

    You sound like you would make a great cosplayer!

    I am one myself so I find this thread very intriguing. Some interesting materials you got going on there. What powdered pigment is that? It must work very well if it's adhering to your plastic phone case. I'm also wondering where you live because I've never seen that brand of clear coat before here in the US.

    I've done the same exact masking tape stencil method for some of my props. But for something as intricate as the Razer THS logo, you can try a method using sticky mailing label paper. You just put the paper into your printer and print the logo out so you can have a perfect representation of it to work with. That way you also don't have to use multiple pieces of masking tape. I would recommend a laser cutter to make a stencil but you may or may not have access to that equipment.

    Anyways, cool work. I've always wanted to make a giant RGB LED Razer THS logo and put it onto my living room wall XD.

    Thanks, but I'm not into cosplay... Yet. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    It's not powdered pigment, actually. It's fabric dye. A really REALLY thick fabric dye, and I'm really surprised by the viscosity of the dye, since I picked it at random at the stationary store. DSC_0843.JPG DSC_0848.JPG
    It does work well, and it's quick drying too, depending on how thick you apply it. I live in Malaysia, and that clear coat is a local brand. I'm pretty sure any brands of clear coat will work too. I've heard of that type of paper used in DIY projects. I'll have to admit, transferring the logo on pieces of masking tape on a small scale, especially the THS logo, it's painstakingly time-consuming. I'll change my DIY methods next time, when I have the time and the materials (college life, urgh). Thanks for the tip! I don't have access to laser cutters currently. It would be nice to have one :D

    Thanks! That giant logo is an awesome idea! I should consider trying that out too.

    You may be able to find access to a laser cutter at school! That's what I did all the time when I was in college :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. Wow, I'm surprised I didn't notice that about the paint. In the picture where you're applying it I thought it looked like a powder. I would have never guessed it was fabric paint.

    And you would love cosplay!! Trust me, what you're doing to make those craft items...that's exactly what we do for cosplay. We even use the same materials - fabric paint, clear coat. Common, you even have an Assassin's Creed hoodie :D

    I literally stockpile those free Razer stickers. Even Newegg only gives "One free per account" on their stickers. Meanwhile I have like 25 Razer ones sitting around that I am too afraid to waste.
