    Creating your own decals?

    Anyone ever try this out? I've got a Mercier Kilo TT frame with no decals on it, I was hoping to find some, but I can't.. so I thought maybe I could make my own? I've been searching around and so far I've found that VC graphics can do decals, but they only do it in one size. Any suggestions?

    Could I do this at home with a regular printer? Would it be durable?

    have you checked at a local sign shop, if you already have the graphic it probably wouldn't be much. I don't think you would get good quality from a home PC printer.

    There are a lot of places on the internet that will print decals for not too much, in almost any size.

    No, you home printer won't do a good job. Depending on what you want on the decal, doing the art work in a vector art program like Illustrator is usually ideal...

    What exactly do you need? Do you have a picture of it? I own a vinyl sticker and silk screen t shirt business. If you are just looking for something fairly simple I can do it for you for cheap. PM me as I am not in foo to often.
