- Where can i get a "true temper steel" decal?
iv phoned a couple of guys i know that make up vinal graphics and they said by the time its scanned and reproduced it'll look shit!
If it's scanned then cleaned up in Photoshop/Illustrator etc, then it might look ok. Maybe the guys you 'phoned just don't have that sort of facility. Mind you, a decent reproduction would take a little while.Posted 7 years ago

mrclean; that wouldn't be too difficult, depending on how accurate you want the reproduction to be. Scan it in, then enlarge the document to about 6×5" or so, so you can see what you're doing, then find a similar typeface for the text, and trace the other parts out with the pen tool, to create a nice sharp vector. The stars and stripes bit would probably pose the biggest challenge.
TBH that's a couple of hours work to get it spot on, and the cost would be ridiculous really.Posted 7 years agomissingfrontallobeMember
Apparently you can get inkjet decal paper for model making purposes or craft purposes here so the image that has been posted could simply be printed onto the decal paper & applied onto the frame under the lacquer. Probably more like the original than being done on vinyl. Simples innit?Posted 7 years ago
