Wondering if anyone can give some advice re getting some custom stickers done up. I’m looking at getting 2 stickers done for custom decals on a downtube and 1 for a headtube. Preferably someone in Brisbane I can deal with directly. Birthday surprise for my father (will post the finished product when done)
I can get my own artwork together, but if the sticker producer can do it for a reasonable price that will suit too.
I plan to use Expert Signs in Sydney http://www.esigns.com.au/stickers.html
to get mine done. They provided good advice on another cycling forum.
He advised that he uses “thermal screen process, printing one colour at a time using foils… printed onto signage vinyl then contour cut out”
Cyclomondo seems to have a long waiting list when I checked.
Hope that helps
A screenprinter I used to work for had a machine that did that. looks pretty good, and it’s pretty hardwearing (I made a Ricaine sticker that lasted being in two bands on the back of my bass). Only problem is I don’t think it’s on clear stock like Cyclomondo’s.
you could try some water slide paper, so you don’t get those raised edges you get with vinyl. i haven’t used it but i was looking at getting some, it looks pretty easy, here is a how to http://126.96.36.199/images/decal_inkjet.pdf, just replace candle with bike, and put a clear coat on top, and it’ll look like the real deal.
