We are working on bringing a online decal designer
to this website, however it is not expected to come online until the end of 2007.

In the mean time, there is a great program called Inkscape
which you can download free of charge. Inkscape is an open source
application that will run on Microsoft Windows and is completely free.
The program uses SVG which stands for Scalable Vector Graphics.
By using this program you will be able to create text and designs
that you can send to us in the correct size you want and best of all,
it will be in the correct file format that we need in order to produce
If you take the time to learn how to use Inkscape,
you will not only be able to send graphics to us for quoting, but
also create artwork for many other situations.
There are some guidelines that you will need to follow in order for
us to make decals from your artwork, because the decals we make are
not printed. Keep in mind that Inkscape
does a whole lot more that we can produce as vinyl cut decals.
- Use only solid colours (Because we don't print, we cannot reproduce
gradients, shadows etc.)
- Keep the design as simple as possible as the design will
allow and don't let paths overlap if possible.
- If you use more than one colour, make sure the different
colour objects are separated. To make multi-colour decals, we
have to use different colour vinyl's and then manually make
put the decal together or send it in kit form.
Here is an example of what can be done in Inkscape that suits vinyl cut
decals (Will post more examples when time permits, still learning the

Saving the artwork:
After making sure that you have made the design how you want it and
it is the correct size, save the design as SVG or EPS. You can then
use the upload facility below to send us the artwork.
There is a lot of Free SVG clip art on the internet, one of the best
resources in www.openclipart.org
