Second. Is that a courtesy violation for boring stamp design?

New stamp kind of looks like C line from Discmania...

I feel like we're going to see less oil slick and rainbow stamps now than ever before
this new stamp style doesn't have a very large footprint, so even if they did put a cool stamp on the disc, it probably would not present as well as it did on the old style. I think Discmania's C-Line circle looks 100 times better.

I really think it's just the bubbly font I don't care for. No prob with the rest of it.
Then again, outside the font and sig, there isn't much to the rest of it - which makes the font really pop.

Who knows, this might help them clear their stock of current Champ plastic from local store's shelves, 'cause no one wants to get stuck with the new stamp. Hit your local disc seller now, while they still have a decent selection of weights/colors with the old stamp!

I don't dye, but I was thinking this stamp seems simplere and easier to remove - don't ask me why, I have no experience with that. Just seems like there's less to remove, maybe?

Yay! Another "bash the number one disc manufacturer of all time" thread!

Seriously, marketing is all about fresh, new ideas that keep product from being stagnant. And that's what we have here. It may not work for you all, or me, but as many, many posters on here have said in other threads (and this one) we are not Innova's target market. How many times have you seen someone on the course throwing speed 13 drivers and .aybe a midrange as a putter in champion plastic...I've seen it a lot. So that's who they're aiming for.

People like us are going to buy our favorites anyway, and reject anything new, so we're not the target market. I bet if you go show a picture of the new stamp style to one of your friends who is new to the game, they'll think its cool...and will promptly run out and purchase a World Champ sig Roc3...

I agree with most of what's being said here. At first glance I really disliked it. It does look like Discmania C-Line and there is less room for cool stamps. The more I see it the more I like it. I do hate the bubble inverted cartoon font. I noticed them using this on the McBeth Aviar. It makes those orange and black signature ones more appealing. Wish they didn't switch over for Paul's signature discs to drop. On the plus side the PLASTIC itself looks super clean and clear like the protos and their grips are premium.

It wouldn't be so bad if they'd just stop throwing the first "cool" font idea they had on a disc. I wish they would take more time in their design department and really be innovative. They've flooded the market with alot of discs to keep sales coming in. They have the time. I have to agree with the majority.

The majority of the minority?
