How Do I Make Custom Decals or Order Some?

Postby Sydney_Buses_CB60 » Thu Dec 08, 2016 10:16 am

Hi,

If I wanted to make my own custom decals (In H0 if that applies) for a 1:87 Scale Bus, Tram or Train model, how would I do it? Is there some sort of app or program out there I can use or is it simpler? Or, do I need to get them custom made and have them ordered? Which is better and if I did have them custom made and ordered them, what is the price range?
All contributions would be greatly appreciated and I will give you acknowledgement for your help.

Thanks,

P.S: I haven't had much luck searching the web... If I know what exactly to look for, that would be very helpful and greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You could create them in a graphics program like PAINT and print them onto a vinyl adhesive sheet.

There are plenty of sign making companies around that could do it for you, but the setting up cost might be high for just a few printed signs.

Ok,
Thanks for the contribution. :D
I think that from this information I'll probably create some on a program and print them myself.

Thanks,
