Testors has put out a cheap computer program if you could find a computer to use it on. I have seen it at Wal-mart the past couple of weeks.

Sorry fellas, I have a tight budget, being only 15. I need a simple method if there is one. I dont have a home computer. Thanks though.

The easiest method is to get some decal paper at your LHS and print it on your ink-jet. But the quality will really depend on initial graphics and abilities of you printer. Some Kinko's have ALPS printers - see if you can find one of these - they print great decals.

Are you looking at custom grahics or contingency sponsors, etc. I've atcually done some contingency graphics and then lettering using a fonts program for the lettering.

You can go onto many companies' websites and cut-and-paste the logos into MS Word (you have to be careul as most are copy-righted). Once you've created your graphics page, you can simply print it out. However, it depends on the type of printer that you are using. There are companies that provide paper for different types of printers. The best that I've seen is the micro-dry process. I've looked into purchasin one of these, but they can be costly if new. An alternative is to buy one off of e-bay 9buy at your own risk as I've seen bad comments from time-to-time as I look on E-bay.

However, what I did, is I sent my work to a guy out in California that did a great job for me. Unfortunately, I don't have his contact information readily available as I have some of my stuff at work packed-up as we are in the process of renovations.

If interested, I can see if I can find it somewhere at home.
