Default Re: Making your own Metal Labels

Hi G6Tanuki

The antique label guy quoted 45 so I think I'll go with that this time because the Link Trainer item will go back to the Museum and it will likely stay on show for many years, so best not fade.

But I'm also ordering some Mr Decal products and possibly a kit for screen printing!

I've always loved those rub-down transfers with the big panorama to make battle scenes etc and it looks like I'll be able to make my own!


Cheers
James

Hi

Here is the result from the Antique Label People, took about 8 days to arrive, I think it is excellent. Also it goes onto my Crinkle finish panel so it should even better whenI get that finished!

I tried the decals, the colours were muted and it was quite hard to float a big decal. They stick really well but easily scratched. Cheap and quick though!


Cheers
James

Hi

I didn't get to make my own label though. I really didn't have time to do that but I will line that up on my to-do list!
