Evening gents,

I'm sitting here looking at my PJ3.

Its a beautiful shape, nice and curvy, very ergonomic and overall a nice brush.

However there is one thing that bugged me.

The stamping is in such a place that when the sticker was on, it was very creased and made the brush look a bit old so I peeled it off. The design of the handle means that there is no flat surfaces like other Simpson brushes.

I look at the brush now, and it looks a bit plain (see below) but no creased sticker.

So my question is, would you rather have no sticker and look like the above or a creased sticker?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Dipesh

I vote : NO sticker!

This allows for the clean and elegant curves of the brush to be uncluttered. I'm not a big fan of the stickers in general, but with this brush in particular, this is more apparent to me! Smile

I think the brushes look equally good with or without the stickers. So if your sticker would be creased, leave it off.

The PJ series are one of the few Simpsons that I reckon look better without stickers so I'd say No Sticker as well. Smile

I like the simpson stickers, but this brush looks fantastic as is. Another vote for no sticker.

Crooked, wrinkled, missing stickers... that is Simpson.

I hear for their new razor line the hold up for Simpson is figuring out how to make the razors logo appear crooked, wrinkled or missing uniquely for each razor. Very difficult to engineer in metal.

I prefer the sticker, except if it is creased. So I would vote no sticker, too.

Go for the sticker. But see if there's a way to warm either the handle or the sticker with a blow dryer 1st to see it it would adhere better.

I have a PJ3 with three small creases in the sticker and a PJ2 with no creases. If one or both of the brushes were to lose the sticker I will not replace it. I don't particularly care if the brush has a sticker but I really don't see the need to replace one on this model of brush.

I think it looks great without the sticker and wouldn't bother putting another on if it were mine.

I'd say she's naked, but this curvaceous beauty can be admired equally dressed or undressed...

I think the group has decided!

It will be going sticker less!

Thank you all for your input.

Not sure if the sticker fell off over the years (probable), but my Somersets don't have any. And what's good for Somersets....Cool

Oh, and I have a PJ3 in my top brush rotation. I couldn't honestly tell you if the sticker is still on this particular Simpson or not. The gorgeous bloom is all I look at until the great lather distracts me and then the wonderful feel on my face.

Yep, I'm with you there Ben. A fantastic picture and clearly that sticker is uncreased. If you can manage it Dipesh, I think it'd look good like lotse's PJ2 but if not, stickerless.
