Custom sticker for my DR
« on: August 19, 2015, 11:54:29 am »
i've designed a bit of a decal for my DR... now how to get it turned into a sticker.  :thumleft:

ideally i'd like the sticker to be transparent i.e. the yellow of the plastic is not covered by a sticker with a solid white background, like in the pic.

Anyone know of sticker guys is Pretoria? Obviously the sticker needs to be able to withstand outdoor/offroad/rough use.

I think what you need is to either have someone make you a die-cut vinyl decal, so that its ONLY the lettering and design that gets applied to you yellow bike, but I guess you could also go the route of having a clear background.

Although many places COULD do something similar, have you contacted Racestar Graphics, they are the industry specialists in GP when it comes to bike decals.

Do this as individual vinyl cut bits it's much easier to apply. Especially the right frame side cover of the DR will be an absolute pain to do with one large sticker. Also holds up better than a printed sticker. Only minus is the limited (not too badly limited) colour palette of vinyl available.
