Re: Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

Colours! Sean had questions. The vinyl is clear, because that's why I'm at this printer, to save on the trouble of cutting stuff out, and make finer shoes possible and stable. The White underlay is the tricky part that most print shops won't do. It's a plain white, "5th colour" of sorts. It will be ...

Re: Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

I will be putting the oder in around July 3rd, so You'll have 10 days to decide if you want something.

Daniel asked me about cost. Think of it this way. 144 square inches for $23, so what you can fit in 1x5 inches for $1.

Re: Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

As for where to start. I go two distinctly different ways, that sometimes cross. DRAWING from scratch I usually go this rough and use adobe illustrator to create vector based files for lines, text, angles, curves, etc. PHOTOS and Photoshop Sometimes I start with an image, like a logo or unusual shap...

Re: Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

I'm thinking to print in the next month. So first or second week of July. I could do it in the next week, but I think it makes sense to give people more time. Do you have a picture of what you want? If it's a straight on photo of the decorated area, I can just delete the surrounding in photoshop and...

Re: Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

The product I'm going for is the adhesive clear vinyl. They have other products, but each thing they run would be subject to the same minimum batch size on the material. The printer that runs the clear vinyl is 4 feet wide and prints onto a roll of material. Once they get the machine going, they wan...

Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

Has anyone ever found a print shop that will print white ink/toner onto a clear sticker? I've asked a few places and they all said no. Official LEGO sets do this all the time for stickers. Even torso prints on a dark torso for light colours, with the white as an undercoat. I would be looking for 1 t...

The Joy of Aquazone

This years BrickCon had a great Aquazone build that got a few people talking about how much they love Aquazone. And at the VLC we talked about doing an Aquazone display once upon a time. It reminded me of this one from BrickCon 2010 that I though I would share.

Here is a short stop-motion I recently made with a friend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCXrWZ7gHoY It's a comedic attack on our voting system.
