Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Copying decals?

I have a set of replacement decals (from the manufacturer) in the original black and white for my Everti Falcon Ti frame. I have started thinking about having them copied in another color scheme as the decals are the only decoration on the bike. The Ti is all just brushed finish. No paint. Maybe black and red or red and gold. I don't know at this point.

Does anyone know a source for having quality decal copies made? For a while I was getting a pop up ad on this forum for a decal supplier, but I kept ignoring it and it finally went away. I think they guy was even posting. Now I am trying to find it, and it is nowhere to be seen. Go figure! Thanks for any help.

I had this guy make me a decal from my own vector .ai file several years ago - JR at VeloCals.

You can do your own, scan, then re do them with a graphics software, print them again in super expensive water slide decal paper. If the decals have silver and stuff you need to use transfers and in that case you have to go with somebody that can handle that, like the velocals guy. I have dealt with him, his work is good.

Any decent sign shop with a plotter can cut logos for you.
