You forgot about the $20,000 printer!!!!! I can relate......lots of trial & error. If everyone starts making decals, I will be out of business!!!!!
All you need is a $5000.00 graphics program and 37 years experience! Just kidding, but for the sake of those making & sellind decals, I won't give the secret away. However websites such as decalpaper.com has the instructions and the materials. I will tell you that after a lot of trail and error, 5/8" tall x 1'' wide seems to real well. Design & print a whole sheet or else you lose a lot of material. Just gives the models a little more realism. Have fun!!!!

Well the ones you're showing at the top look great. They do add to the working truck look.
Your right, and I was not getting into how to make decals, because it can be time consuming and fairly expensive by the time you get it right! What i was trying to show is that we strive to build correct models and to be a correct working truck, they need to identification on the doors. I see decals for big trucking companies, but what about the replica of your friends truck at ABC TRUCKING that only owns 1or 2. The decals on these trucks are people I did 1:1's for years ago and still had in the computer. Just thought it would be fun to show what could be done to add realism to the trucks. Trying to hide the fact I can't do airlines, etc.

I originally started out doing inkjet, now everything is done on my ALPS printers.

My question is: color laser or inkjet? Seems like a no-brainer (laser) but figured I'd ask to see if any gotchas. I have access to a high-end color laser at work in our marketing department and thinking that's going to be my best bet but any advice between the two would be great.
