    Where can I buy a very large "funsters" smiley face, one large enough to fit on our 80cm sat dish. Have seen a few around on the back of MHs.

    Sorry, don't know. But mount it the right way up if you get one.

    Have a look on the web. I'm sure you'll find one somewhere.

    Failing that anyone who does vinyl graphics could make you one for a couple of quid.

    What you will find though is sticking it to a curved surface like a satellite dish will be an absolute pig of a job. I would order at least two because if you've never done it before you'll almost certainly mess it up the first time.

    That one looks more like it's been painted than a sticker.

    As already said with the curved shape, you are on a cruzin for a bruzin. Paint is the only way to go, even if you use vinyl for the eyes and mouth. (y)

    If you want true hipster credentials, go for the Watchmen version:

    Jim - maybe the next Fun sticker could have a splash of spilt red wine on it?

    Agree with Supermike...
    With the curves on a dish, fitting a graphic on may be hard..

    Just find a local old school signwriter or college art student..
    Any paint is ok, just not lead based !! But that's rare anyway..

    It's a pig unless you are used to it. Someone who sticks or wraps vehicles would do it in about 30 seconds. Anyone else - about 3 hours, lots of swearing and probably 2 or 3 stickers screwed up and thrown away :D

    It's really not that hard, simply hammer or press the dish until it is flat then apply the sticker, there's more than one way to skin-a-cat you know.
