I also thought about a dial card.  One that would be time period correct, like an exchange card.  The black ones with the white center.

Like one of these from The Telephone Archive:

I disagree about the level of detail, who's gonna notice the correct dial card or even fingerwheel on a decal, maybe on a car bumper in the slow lane at 30mph?

But - if its a T-shirt at talkiing distance, then yes, go for it.

Badges/buttons - smaller it gets less detail needed - just a generic 302 graphic that stands out from the background colour.

Now that's an idea!

I would buy a t-shirt if they were offered. 
Small logo on the front pocket area,  larger one on the back.

Heck,  a polo/golf shirt would be better.

Nice way to cover web page costs......

Quality product fetches the higher prices.

Polo/golf shirt.  Just one logo over the left or right upper chest.

That last tote picture was going to be my color scheme suggestion. Red lettering, white (ivory) background, and a blue 302. Collectors know a blue 302 is a holy grail, while the uninformed think it is the red, white and blue logo. I like the oval shape better than the round too.

I like t eh blue like the forum, with the oval and capitalized title.  Regardless of what happens, this decal's gonna look nice in the window of my station wagon :)

I think we should use a MedBlue 302 instead of the plain black model. It is as classic as the current model being used.
