    Decals for an anodised aluminium frame

    So i am anodising an older frame, and i want to make some nice decals for it. I dont want vinyl stickers because they look like crap after a short while. I really would like something like the graphics you see on some wheelsets, like DT swis ones, or on shimano cranks. They seem to be some sort of baked on waterslides that are very durable.

    Does anyone know where to get these made?

    thanks!

    Water transfer decals is what you're asking about. But don't write off vinyl stickers, they're not all created equal. Some high quality ones can be very thin.

    These names pop up in my travels, but I haven't had the chance to use them yet.
    Velocals, Victory Circle Graphics or SSSInk.

    Get some stencils cut by your local signmaker/vinyl cutter and have fun with an airbrush

    For water slide decals, look up Gus Salmon Decals. He does my frame graphics.

    Hi, thanks, i did find a company that does heat set waterslides. Have not had a chance to contact them yet.

    Are the ones you guys recommend heat set? My frame is anodised, so it will not have any form of protective coating over the decals.
