    Frame Decals / Stickers / Graphics

    What are people using as a cost effective solution to adding decals to their frames. I am powder coating frames and then have just added some cut vinyl graphics but not sure how long they will last. Any suggestions would be great.

    Look into <a href="">image transfer with packing tape</a>.

    There's also some interesting toner transfer metallic foils.

    I've been using vinyl cutouts from VCgraphix, they work really well. I was looking at getting some sticker headbadges from them too, I think they can do more detailed stuff.

    Whit had a good blog post about this using some other kind of decals: Decals | Meriwether Cycles

    I'm sure He'll chime in.

    Find somebody local who does signs and truck lettering. A friend of mine has a printing/sign/lettering design business and cuts the decals for me. They hold up well and are designed for outdoor use. He also cuts my paint masks for when I paint the lettering.

    This one has decals with a silver border printed on red vinyl
