Took some searching, but the font looks like it's called "Jackson Mn Regular". Found it on fontsgeek.com, but struggling to download it !!
Thanks to KKV for providing the direction ( Sorry, don't know your name).
Have passed info to Isaydingdong, so waiting on reply. Looking promising. They said they could have recreated my approximation if needed for a relatively small cost. With the right font, should be a walk in the park for them.
I will PM those who have expressed interest with my correct email address ( the one used for this site is no longer active, and I'm using a gmail account, which as we know, has it's limitations on the forum.

Team work is dream work....

It might also be worth contacting Dan at divinehandcraft.co.uk as he is a Lotus owner who does stickers (well-known on other Lotus forums). I should have mentioned him yesterday!

Progress update.
Dingdong have confirmed they can produce a silver sticker with correct black Jackson Mn font. They will be sticky on the back, so will need to stick to the stricker or the stricker cover, but I don't see this as a problem. They could produce a window sticker, sticky side on the front, but this would have to be grey background (They actually said a silver background window sticker was not impossible, but it would be SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive).
So unless someone on the forum can see a problem I've missed with a silver sticker, stick on rear, that's what I'm proposing to go with.

So who's in on a group buy? Price will depend on qty, but it will be no more than £6 worst case. I hope it will be down to £5. By my count there are 4 people in the above chain who've shown interest, plus me. I've emailed you all, but so far only have replies from two (Maybe I'm not the only one whose now using a different email address to that registered with the site).
Post here or reply to earlier email all those who are wanting a sticker or 2.

At that price if I was you I'd buy two and have a spare. I would stick it on the outside as it probably will last quite a long time
because how often are you going to press on it? At least it would look the same as the old one.

Ready to get an order placed.
So far I have following requests:
Pete B 1 off
Emmerg ( Guy) 2 off
theelanman 2 off
Don't be foolish 1 off
Red Baron 2 off
TAR (Tim) 3 off
and I'll maybe get 2 or 3 for myself , so about 15 should cover it. Could I ask you all to confirm to my gmail account ( you should have an email from me providing it).
Anyone not listed above, this is your final call.

Tony. I see my name RED BARON on your list is that correct? I don't have an Elite, so don't need it . I only have a Excel,
I was only telling you the place you could possibly get them made, and advising you to get more than one for yourself.
As I had "DO NOT JACK" stickers on clear background ( they sent six) made for myself.

You can still buy the Valvoline one, can't you? I am sure I have seen them for sale at one of the specialists.

Yes you can still buy them.......
It seems they have doubled in price........
So I asked isaydingdong....and they said they could do them for £5 (Tthe original price of the others) if we knew the size of them......
Ì never want to pay a revised price especially when it's more than double........£4.77 original........now £10 + vat........mmmm
