Water Slide Decals

Postby fido » Tue Oct 02, 2012 7:59 am

I have a question for those who restore rare machines where the original makers decals have worn off or are lost due to refinishing. I have done some alterations in my bathroom and some of the ceramic tiles were destroyed in the process. I had not worried about this at the time, as I had planned to cover all the old tiling with "wetwall" laminate panels. Since then my plans have changed and I'm now trying to restore the original 1968 tiling scheme. I have been given a load of the 6" square white tiles to replace the missing ones but the top row originally had a stylised pheasant in red and black on a white background. I have replaced the missing ones of these (about 10 tiles) with the plain white ones but would like to get decals printed to match the other top row tiles. I'm told it is best to get them printed on "water slide decal" film using a colour laser printer. I can get colour laser printing done at a local print shop but they don't have the film so I must provide it for them. Is there anyone here who can advise me further on specific products to look for?

also look for a firm called Scrap Dragon, who supply the materials for printing onto transfer materials for printing onto mugs and tiles.
