A month or so ago, someone added a link to their topic for this guys website that creates words that can be flipped upside down and it still says the same thing....it's truly awesome to look at. I remember when I use to travel to see the Dead and there was a decal that is exactly what I am describing that says GRATEFUL DEAD and when you turn the image around, it is exactly the same. I do not know what this visual is called and have tried to locate it on other sites (do you know just how many GD decals there are out there???) 1,000,001......but I can't find the "1".
Not sure of what you are trying to explain? MIRROR IMAGE? or words like RACE CAR spelled backwards is RACE CAR! Only letters that can be turned upside down while still being read. Would be "O"-"H"-"I"
Corey, Lemme try to look through my huge drawer of Dead decals and see if I can find the one you are looking for.

My first Dead show was in 1976 in Chicago. I immediatly fell into the tape-trading scene & found those stickers & t-shirts etc. to facilitate networking with other 'heads in my abundant travels that began the next year after HS graduation. I met my first wife at a show a year later (painted her a jean jacket with the "American Beauty" album cover art) The first few years were just hitting 2 or 3 local shows a year. (I was at a show in Portland Or. at the time of Mt St Helens second massive eruption & came out to a city shrouded in falling ash... that was cool!)
I also attended several JGB (Jerry Garcia Band) shows, & Bob Weir shows)My daughter slept through her first show at the age of 1, & learned to walk in a house full of deadheads where her mom & I stayed in Walnut Grove while selling crafts on Telegraph avenue in Berkley to raise money to return to Oregon.
I saw them in Jamaica in 1982 at a 3 day festival. My first summer tour was in 1983 hitting 13 shows in 8 states traveling without my own car, & financing the trip with selling crafts in parking lots & truck stops etc. (No, I didn't sell dope... just crafts made from pre-columbian grave beads that I smuggled in from Peru) My last long coast-to-coast tour was 1986 ending at the 4th of July show in Buffalo NY 2 days before Jerry's first diabetic coma in Washington DC, which shut down the band for awhile.
3 years & several shows later, living in Manhatten I was a regular at the Greenwich village club "Wetlands" for shows by the mostly thenunknown band "Blues Traveler" On Halloween 1989 Phish (also not nationally known yet) played a small party with B.T. trading sets & ending in a finale onstage together when Traveler's drummer Brendan let me jump in on the percussion frenzy. (not quite my 15 mintes of fame, but memorable none the less)In 1990, I would hang on the street outside Madison Square Garden for 6 or 8 straight shows never going inside. (by then I was intentionally unemployed & "squatting" in an abandoned building in the east village on one of my "social experiments" living outside of the cash-driven mainstream society)If you've ever been among the hundreds partying in the parking lot during a deadshow, you will understand why these shows are included on my informal count. (I never kept track... & quite a fog exists over some of those memories but I'd say between 75 & 100 is accurate)
Most of the early 90's I was a signshop employee in New Mexico, just catching local shows & traveling to the 3 date shows each summer in Las Vegas & 2 date shows each winter in or around Phoenix & Tempe AZ. sometimes on this bus owned by Norm & Sandy Ruth of Deluxe Engraving & Screenprint my last employer before moving to Maui.
