My newly built SC10. Quick & simple. Hardest part was the masking for the hood amoeba graphic:

Then I found there over the counted adhesive backed paper that you could use a Laser printer on, but it is made out of paper, the print quality was great but the paper did not hold up, even putting a clear vinyl over it did not work to good.

So as it stood the first bumper sticker material was the best I could do with a clear laminate over it.

I went back to Office Depot to get some more of this bumper sticker material, and found out that they don't carry it anymore.

So I started looking around to see if I could find something else that would work, and that's when I found this stuff, it's made by Avery and is called (weather proof white labels) it is some kind of vinyl that you can use a Laser printer on.



The print quality is as good as any sticker I've seen, and it's very sticky, but it's not very stretchy, It works great on flat and semi curved surfaces, but not so good on real curved areas, like where the big S is on the side of my SCT.
I tried using a hair dryer to heat it up when putting it on, but It did not seem to help. Also the heat seems to have a bad effect on the glue, because when I stick it on something flat, it sticks so good I can barely get it off, but when I heat it , it doesn't seem to stick at all.

But any way It's all I can afford, and I think it looks good enough for me. I have tried to have some stickers done professional, and it cost way more than I can afford or think that it's worth.

I'm using a Graphic program that is similar to Illustrator, it's called Flexi sign, and it allows me to create, manipulate and change just about any thing I want.

I hope this helps.
OOC RC Racing makes a media kit just for making decals. You get 10 sheets in the kit. I can fit 2 wing wraps on one sheet. The material is like what Mike was talking about; sticky, but not flexible.

here's my wing I did with the kit:

and here are some of the SCT paint jobs I have done:


they're all paint

The last one was for a kid at the track for Christmas. I figured he would like to put on all the decals himself (have you seen the Blitz decal package ) so I didn't do any logos or headlights or anything.

interesting paper choices...

i started out with avery's clear sticker stock for inkjets. unfortunately, the stock was kinda matte'ish and would rub off.

i then found a website that prints on a paper that then you apply spray of clear acrylic. then you cut them out and soak in water to activate. looks glossy.

gonna try the water proof label and see how that works...

I like this simple design, and it looks good. I'll probably do this myself, but change the white for silver. I'm very novice to painting bodies, so this should be doable for me.

Avery white paper labels (as big as you want) print, and then apply crystal clear packing tape over them. You have to trim by hand but they work really well and last quite a long time unless they get severely wet.

(My "W" logos on my RCGT car are Avery with clear tape over them)
