  • Custom decals. Tell me about them and recommend somewhere to get them made.
  • I have a naked carbon road frame and I am looking at getting some custom decals knocked up. Nothing too flash just a custom name on the down tube and a graphic for the seat tube.

    Are there different types of decal.?

    He has done some bike ones for me, and some great big gold ones for a boat….

    I’ve used those vinyl ones a few times which are sandwiched between two sheets of sticky paper. Most vinyl signmakers should do them with loads of designs & colours to choose from. I think I paid £5 for two large ones for the downtube & a smaller one for the headtube at my local place.

    Used slik for custom orange five graphics, very happy with the service and the result

    Here’s my original thread

    Various options, but if you only want small numbers or a single set I would use a computer cut “cast” grade vinyl, but then again it depends how detailed your design is.

    Outside of this a solvent based full colour CMYK print onto a conformable vinyl with suitable laminate, but then it depends on the colours you intend using

    Beyond this if you want a thinner “decal” waterslide decals are an option but then can be hard to fit and quite “delicate” on a MTB frame and really only viable for larger numbers

    Whizz me over your design and I can suggest the best production method for the design you have in mind 🙂

    I used DNFIve, can’t recommend them highly enough, ordered Friday lunch, arrived Sat morning, wasn’t even standard, reasonable too, cheaper than Silk Graphics.

    Here’s the results…
