    custom decal printing?

    i'd like to have some custom decals printed, anyone know of an online retailer who's cheap and makes decent prints? i'd really like color (single or a few colors is fine) precut decals. i want to go with some drawings i've done and traced out in vector, printed in blue

    I don't know where you are located?

    I would say the best place to try would be care places decal places that do custom prints. Maybe even some kind of place that prints t-shirts in your local area usually do this type of thing.

    If you've already done the vector graphics and they are good and ready to go, I would think printing would not be too terribly much from a local graphics company. Now keep in mind, it's still going to be some cash. But it would be 3-4 times as much if they did the vectors from your drawings. If you can give them the files, they should really only charge you materials and machine time. Provided that it is not too complex on the cut out edges, this shouldn't cost that much. I recently got some custom graphics made for my rims and fork to match the color scheme of the rest of my ride. I'm very happy with them, but it did set me back almost a hundred bucks. But I did not do the vectors myself, I had them do that. So it did take more time which equals more money.

    There could be a valuable resource right in front of you if you're looking for an alternative to the actual print/production of decals. There are those who specialize of painting/airbrushing graphics that could either replicate via freehand or using stencils based techniques. Again, its going to cost you some coin but maybe not a much as producing the decals. Check with your local custom paint shops and see if they can refer you to someone or even higher end hobby shops.

    Just a thought.
