    Super High Resolution Decal Scan

    It may too high of resolution...let me know if it opens. Thumbnail is towards the bottom center of the page. Left image is 28MP while the right is 3.47. Strips of paper to the lft and above are 3" and 5" and are for scale.

    Feel free to copy/reproduce or whatever......

    The second one opened for me but not the first one.

    both open for me, thanks for making them available...now to look a gift horse in the mouth: since they are jpegs and not vector-based, even at this super-high res I'm seeing some choppiness in the linework. And on my monitor (a very high-grade job and calibrated for graphic arts work, but that's neither here nor there) the colors look very brilliant, nearly fluorescent...if I ever have a spell of free time I'll re-draw some of these in Illustrator and assign PMS colors (but don't hold your breath, folks). I'm sure that most folks who'd print out on inkjet decal stock will be more than happy with them as-is.

    I ran across those in a bike store in England or Japan many years ago. There were a number of different designs. I bought one, still have it. Should have bought them all. The one TA was sure helpful...

    The colors are very brilliant and to the naked eye there is no choppiness. In regards to them being jpegs, should I re-scan and save them as a different file type?

    Those are great! You can even see the cut lines! It'd be good to have them as a lossless format, but if you aren't constantly editing and saving them, it's fine as is.

    all true and I hope I wasn't sounding too ungrateful (this is part of my business/profession). No point in saving a scan in any other file format: a jpeg is probably the most useful to the most folk, if somebody wants to open in Photoshop and try them in CMYK mode or mess with the color, they can do that. The only way to make them vector files is to re-draw them (by hand and by eye) in Illustrator.

    You can save them as a bit map and make them as small or large as you want. As a bit map they are sharp enough, and enlarge to whatever size you need.

    uh...no.
    Bitmap, raster, pixel all are common names for the same thing:
    http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/abo...tmapvector.htm
    and since I'm lecturing now (sorry folks: it's hijacked) I have to retract what I say above about the "only way" to make a raster file into vector is to re-draw it in something like Illustrator...I should have said that's the only way for me.
    There are plenty of software programs that claim to do it (and with practice some actually do) and even some sweat-shop-like operations that offer to do the job for peanuts.

    Whatcha using? Eizo? We use Eizo monitors at work and they are pretty darned nice... and a bit pricey. Pure curiosity.

    Thanks for the nice scans. I can make these into vector based art pretty easily if anyone is interested in specific decals.

    The high res one doesn't display in my browser but I easily saved it to the hard drive.

    As someone who went to a lot of trouble a while ago in taking high res macro photos + hand-tracing off a frame to get measurements + converting to vector drawing I know how good this file is as a starting point. The resolution is superb! Thanks for sharing.

    it isn't even the really high-grade Eizo (it's an "office model"), but it's expensive enough, and yeah they are "pretty darned nice" and pretty darned pricey, too!
    If you can make these into vector art easily then you are a better man than I am, Gunga Din, so have at it: why not do the whole sheet of 'em?

    Well... easily might not be 100% accurate. The cinelli shield would take a bit of time for sure. I started some of the easier ones and the Mavic Square logos were driving me up the wall. I want to draw them perfectly straight and symmetrical but they just aren't! Not even close in fact.

    I cut masks on a pretty regular basis so I work fairly quick. I also use a Wacom Intuos drawing pad which is pretty slick.
