CVS Camcorder Sticker

CVS Camcorder Sticker

I was fiddling around with my CVS camcorder and noticed the sticker was getting a little loose. I tugged on it and peeled the entire thing all the way off. As soon as I did, I noticed how similar in size, shape and texture my new spiffy vinyl EGC stickers are to the one on the camera.

I used the original one as a stencil to draw the pattern on the back of my sticker. I had to offset it a little since my sticker is not quite as wide and doesn’t wrap all the way around. A little work with the exacto knife, and I had a sticker with the same holes as the original one, which allow both the lens and the internal microphone to go through.

Goodbye, stock CVS camcorder. Hello, one of a kind Evil Genius Chronicles camcorder! It’s the most trivial of Maker type projects, but it makes me smile.

    You should crank out some videos dave! good job. Anyone handy with an Xacto knife earns high praise.

    If it wasn’t for that whole licensing thing with CVS, that could easily be some great swag for your next conference.

    Wayne, that is exactly what will happen. The next conference I go to, I’ll be handing those out*.

    Dorothy, would it spoil the illusion of my handiness if I tell you that there was a spoiled sticker in between that I am conveniently leaving out? I didn’t do the “off-register” just right, so I had to start over. Plus, it took several passes to make the lens hole big enough to fit over that piece. So, a pretty sad journey to a neat little thing.
