    Hello,

    I've searched few hours for a place where i can order custom made transfer decals for my first build project. Preferably in UK, other places will do as long as they do business in English.

    Size of the decals is 12"x12" or 300x300mm, multiple colors and Pantone Gold 871. I need 2 pieces.

    Does anybody know a small company that can provide these decals? I got an offer from a company here in Finland, but they have minimum order of 150£.

    To make a 12"x12" decal, i need a A3 paper. And a printer that makes them, haven't got one myself. Normal bubblejet printers don't manage well with those Pantone metal colors. And i'm not sure about the quality of those DIY-decals.

    Anyone got experience making those?

    Why not a vinyl decal instead? Plenty of places can make those up without trouble.

    I got some custom decals made by Kustom PCs - and they were excellent... I would highly recommend their service.

    I had a number of emails back and forth getting them to spec and the staff there are very helpfull

    I checked them out and they have a good collection of decals, custom made also. But they are all single colored, i need 2 colors + that Pantone Gold.

    I have investigate more.

    That vinyl is pretty thick, it sticks out when installed to acryl/glass. The transfer decals i have seen are barely noticeable on the surface.
