    Lower Leg Graphics.... US Based?

    I have been google searching for a US based company that does custom lower leg decals for my Pike. So far, most of the companies I have found are out of Europe. I have ordered from overseas several times, but I dislike doing so. Anyone have any recommendations for a graphics company in the US?

    And if you want from the UK, you cannot go wrong with Slik Graphics.

    Yes. Slik Graphics has always been great for me too. I've ordered many sets of rim and fork decals from them. Always takes about a week after ordering to arrive.

    In fact, I just received new decals for my new Pike this week.

    How do they hold up? The graphics on my wheels on my gravel bike look like poo after only 1000 miles of riding. Very faded by the sun. Thought about contacting WTB for replacements if they offer them...but maybe something more custom would be cool if they last.

    I'd say they are every bit as good as OEM decals maybe a bit thicker. You'll likely be replacing these in probably the same amount of time or use. But for $20, I don't think too much about it. They look good, any color option you want and perfect fit/size as OEM.

    Thanks. I'm getting a new bike that has the Pike fork with black graphics so something with some color might be nice too in addition to new wheel decals. Thanks for the input!

    So do you guy's that have done the custom graphics for forks remove the original graphics, or do you place the new ones over the originals?

    I work my stickers on Adobe Illustrator and print them on vinyl for cheap.

    Would using a hair dryer make that task easier?

    Can you use a home inkjet printer?

    You have vinyl self adhesive paper for inject printers.
    But I can't comment on quality, I just print them at stores with vinyl cutter machines, I give them the EPS file and they print and cut it.
    Usually I pay around 35€ to print and cut around 1 square meter with anything I want.

    Usually not needed. Just pick at a corner and slowly peel it off. They usually come off pretty easy.

    Agreed. I've had quite a few sets of stickers by Slik and they've all been great - quality, durable product.

    I think you're good with Stikrd if you are looking for Rockshox or custom frame graphics. They took all Fox options off their site and haven't responded when I recently inquired about Fox fork and shock stickers FWIW.

    I just ordered a set of fork decals from Stikrd. I also ordered some frame decals from NLdesigns. Nldesigns has been a week since I paid and have not heard anything from them on shipping my decals. Stikrd was just ordered on Thursday.

    I had my Slik within a week of paying, and I live in the states.

    OP save yourself the trouble, just order from Slik. The no response has been my experience with Stikrd.
