    Here's a few new potential options, I'd welcome your votes on the preferred options. Option 1 (red/black) is already locked in, but I can order another 2 or 3 color combos. There would be a small price bump due to reduced quantities of the new colors, but nothing too significant. There's likely to be a small change to the design as I work with the manufacturer to tweak a few things, but I do not have any details yet.

    If you have any more suggestions, and there's enough support, please comment below. Please do not PM me, and if you have an existing 'reservation' for fobs, there's no need to message me that you'd like to switch colors, for now these are just suggestions. Beside, they're cheap enough you can have one for every day of the week, right? :)

    I'll be setting up a more 'robust' ordering process over the next few days, as doing it via PM and PayPal turns into a bit of a nightmare :crying:

    Note, the poll allows for multiple choices, and also bear in mind these are 'artists' impressions, so actual colors will vary slightly.

    One of my votes was for the red on white...which looks nice, but in reality I would never buy b/c that white will look like crap in no time.
    Now, a solid red with white letters...that would be sharp. or even red with black letters.

    Not voting for any of the new choices, as I was looking for the reverse of #1; so a fob with a red background, black logo / stitching.

    Something like this? I cannot edit the poll, otherwise I'd add it as an option, or at least replace the pink :)

    Ooh! That is it, for sure! Not sure my PM got through earlier, but I'm thinking of ordering one black for now, and holding out on a second fob cover until something more red-ish comes out. :wink:

    I would also like to see this with blue background and black 'T'. Similar to a 'his and hers' fob cover.

    Can I change my vote to white on black? That's nice and clean.

    Hi Pete, I haven't voted yet. Would you be able to show what a black logo on dark gray would look like?
    Similar to #5 but with a black logo and stitching.

    Thanks and excellent work!

    I would also consider just black, without badging. in any case, we need two stat! we've been keeping the fob separate from our keys because of all the reports of cracking but the darn things are so light they just want to vanish. we've found them under the seat, under the car, on the floor of the house, under the bed etc. the fob is basically a $500 bill slipping around in my pocket, it's a bit unnerving...
