Custom 3M decals

Hi all,

I have been a LT member for a long time and have seen many people supporting the community by selling items pertaining to the group.

I have a full service print shop in San Antonio, TX - AlphaGraphics and would love to print some 3M decals for racing purposes or any other uses for that matter. We can produce window and body decals along with wall and floor graphics/ posters etc, for your garage or man cave all customized with whatever image, picture etc you can think of as well, we have a full time in-house graphic design team that can create a custom design of your dreams.

We can ship anywhere in the US and Canada via FedEx.

I am not sure of the rules as I see other members that do not sponsor the site selling items, but I am more than happy to do so if that is the requirement and if any members would be interested in some products.


Let me know if I am breaking the rules or if there is any interest, group buys would not be required. And I do drive a Lotus (2006 Elise) just in case anyone is wondering

Thank you,
Taylor

Let me know if you can reproduce this :


It looks like they started with red chrome vinyl, and using a large printer, they printed black ink on top.

Im interested to hear how you think they may have done it.

That is exactly what it looks like, our machine is an HP 360 Latex printer so what we would do is print the black ink onto the red chrome vinyl (just as you thought). The Latex printer uses heat to dry the ink onto the vinyl. That is some seriously detailed artwork that took someone a long time, but of course it's worth it when it's applied to a P1! We can do a whole wrap but it wouldn't be very cost efficient unless you were in the area. lol and this would take some deep pockets for the design time factor. Nonetheless a great example of what new print technology is capable of.

Hi, I'd be looking for a color door decal about 10" x 24", I'd want 2 or maybe 4 and have the art, would a quantity that small be cost effective? thanks

Sorry I'm probably too late!

I would charge $7 per sq ft. Plus standard fedex shipping. That should be fairly competitive!

And assuming the art works out, I could probably ship this week!
