Repainting bike + custon stickers

Hey, ive been thinking of repainting my aluminum frame that has been badly scratched, but have no clue what kind of paint or tool do I have to use, so that it would look pretty and not ****ty. And other question, you have any ideas where can I order custom stickers of my own design for print?

Thanx

I'm a big proponent of powder coating. It's not a method that you can do yourself but it's not all that expensive (I've heard ~US$70 from many people). In my experience powder coat holds up better then virtually any other painting/coating method.

As far as decals go any retail sign shop (e.g. Fastsigns or Signs Now are not hard to find here in the States) can provide you with what you need. I'd recommend calling or walking into a local shop as I've always found them very helpful.

As a designer please try to find a local sign/decal place

Those Fastsigns & Signs Now places are the equivalent to my field as the discount bikeshop is to the local bike shop in the bike industry. The commercialization of our stuff really dimishes the value of my (and adjacent) fields. Go local.
