Need something completely custom? Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Because we only use inks which are not see-through our gold, silver and white decals show up well even on very dark or black headstocks.
Our decals are precision made restoration quality decals printed onto the finest quality fresh waterslide paper. We use completely opaque and permanent inks, including truly metallic gold and silver, so unlike decals printed on inkjet or laser printers the colour of our decals is not affected by the colour of the surface underneath - our decals can be used on ANY colour headstock. The paper is ultra thin (allowing for a superior edgeless finish - like the originals), the unprinted areas remain totally transparent, and it is compatible with all spray lacquer types including nitrocellulose. Like all waterslide decals ours can only be applied to sealed, non-porous, non-oily surfaces (for example lacquered wood). They are designed and produced by us in our studio, printed freshly to order.
Waterslide decals cannot be applied to oiled surfaces. They need to be applied to a smooth, clean non-porous surface, and after application should be sealed in with a clear spray on lacquer. Our decals are compatible with most spray on lacquers including nitrocellulose, acrylic, waterborne, 1K and 2K.
- Fit many common electric guitar headstocks.
- Opaque inks show on any colour headstock, including black.
- Ultra thin waterslide material.
- Easy to completely hide the edges under lacquer.
- Gold and silver inks are truly metallic.
