Default Where to get custom Decals ?

Can you buy paper that will work with your printer to make decals like we get with our kits. Or can we have somebody else do them.

How do you contact Scott? I sent an email to maxspeeddesigns a month or more ago and follow up emails to order some custom decals and they have not helped me out yet. How do you order them? By Phone? Its frustrating not to receive a response to my requests.

a vinyl printer (aka "plotter") is like a printer, but uses a sharp blade to precisely cut the design into the material, rather than ink for a photo.

CEFX does custom decals or any other graphic or paint mask you may need. Give Josh a call.

Jpilone: a vinyl printer... Printer that prints on vinyl...
Not cutter.
However, some models do both, print & cut.

Cheap model Roland PC-12.....around $3k
Gerber Edge 2 around 12-14K....

They use wax or resin ribbons to print most of the time.
