    She was still active in the late 13th Century in Egypt. She didn't have many followers left, but there were a few pockets of admirers, so she stuck around.

    We went out a few times. Great sense of humor!

    As is this one - I think it should just say "PRS Forum - Squirt happens"

    I'm in BTW, laser etched metal would be cool

    How about one of the new brush stroke birds with PRS Forum 2013 discretely etched in to the strokes? I'm no artist, but I'm sure you get my drift.....

    I agree with a vote. I would love to see something with the new brushstroke birds. they are beautiful, modern and have both a touch of class and modern art.

    How about merging both ideas? How about a unique brushstroke bird and a banner around it (Like on a PS headstock) etched with "Official PRS Forum" on the metal TRC Shawn mentioned?

    I like that, incorporates traditional Ps banners plus new brush stroke birds and recognizes the forum.

    Not sure how you stylistically incorporate brushstroke minimalist birds with a traditional neoclassical banner, guys.

    It's like wearing plaid tennis shoes with a tuxedo. I mean, you can do it, but something's off. It won't hang together. Think cheeseburger wrapped in sushi. Doesn't go.

    If you could stylize the banner or use letters somehow to match the birds, it would be better.

    You're talking about a very small item in a TRC, not much room for stuff to throw on it. The simpler, and the more stylistically consistent, the better it will turn out.

    Example: the classic TRC for the Santana. One image, one statement. Looks good on the guitar. Now imagine squeezing a little neoclassical banner on it that said, "PRS Santana". Would screw it up. Then it goes from iconic to just another TRC.

    Or take the Apple logo. It's simple, one color now. Think back to when it was rainbow colored. Or take an apple laptop, and under the white apple symbol, imagine a little neoclassical ribbon banner that said, "Apple Macintosh." Meh, right?

    Clean design works better.

    Let's say the PRS forum TRC was just a brushstroke bird on black metal. Cool. It doesn't need to say PRS Forum on it at all, much like the Santana TRC. Speaks for itself, elegantly.

    The banner works under the more traditional looking PS Eagle because they're both traditional images, with roots going back a very long time.

    I'd probably use it as a luggage tag.

    for me, less is more. TRC is a very small place. I like the Brushstroke idea. got my vote on that.

    Saw this on a guitar on ebay. Can't afford the guitar (sorry), but I love this look. Maybe someone can modify it to brush strokes or put the "FORUM" on a banner. All I've ever really used photoshop for is exchanging heads and bodies.

    That's a great way of explaining what I was thinking. You should be able to "hide" any text that you would want in the brush stroke using tone on tone in the etching process. Wouldn't be a fan of the stroke and the banner, or for that matter a block of text.
