      Urgent Maintenance   07/18/2018

      I will be taking the board offline some time this evening to solve an urgent server issue. Don't have an estimated duration, but it shouldn't take too long. Sorry for the short notice, but we're in a bind here.

Custom decals

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there's anybody out there who does custom decal work, in a timely manner. I've got a few things I would like to get done. I haven't had any luck with the Testors decal program and paper. I need them printed on clear decal paper as they will be going on an orange car. Thanks for looking!

I have ordered custom decals from Speedway decals -- Thomas does excellent work. I provided him with the pictures of the decal I needed and he'll create the custom art work and then print the decals. Hope this helps,

Al

Jeremiah, I use the 8X10 sheets from Bare metal foil co . I have an Epsom Bubble jet printer and MOST printers on the market use such . Yes, you can buy a laser printer and as such , YOU HAVE to use a LASER Decal paper or else !!!!!! You also need to apply a CLEAR Lacquer finish over your work !!!!! For what it's worth , my office is South of Richmond in Chester Va . I don't do any Virginia contests as they're all IPMS and we don't exactly get along . Perhaps we can meet say a coffee shop if you want my help sometime ....

If the car is orange the decal images will need a white undercoat. Without it the color images on your decal will be translucent and the orange background will make their colors look way off.
