Does depend on what you are doing but generally the clear back is better.

'Both' isn't really an option. I don't want to have to maintain two different styles. While waterslide decals look the best they are most difficult to cut, apply and require a blank torso. Die-cut stickers are easiest for all. Clear-back stickers look good, but still require a blank torso. Solid-back requires a bit more color matching but covers up any torso.

I think for customizers, clear-back is nicest; but for regular folk, solid back is the most practical.

Has anyone seen what BrikStix is doing?

Yes, and been kicking myself for not following up when I had the same idea two years ago. X|

A really great idea especially for designs that will go across multiple pieces. I was particularly thinking of graffiti that could be easily applied to the walls of the modular houses series without creating a STAMP.

I'm not sure how well it will work on torsos but I will probably pick up a couple to try the product out.

Augh! They're both good for different things!

Both.

I like both, but I do think you are correct Armothe, in that the general customer is Not a customizer and would probably need the solid back to cover up a torso design.

BrikStix, I'll check it out.
