When we moved from the San Diego area to Prescott, Arizona, our new home had a yard that was just right for an outdoor G Gauge layout. The community to which we were moving was "Prescott Canyon Estates." Hence, the name of our railroad became the "Prescott Canyon Southern Garden Railroad." Shortened for use on rolling stock and locomotives to "Prescott Canyon Southern."
Of course, no decal or train manufacturer had the PCSRR logo or lettering, so we had to design our own. Many different techniques were tried. Some successful, some not. An ALPS printer was purchased and with that equipment we're able to print full color, white, full opaque white, metallic gold and metallic silver. We developed some techniques to print full color lettering, as well as white, silver or gold.
For over 18 years, we've been able to do "custom" decals and special art for modelers of trains, planes, cars, boats, buses, trolleys, Military models, etc. See just some of the samples below. We have 100's more.
To produce your "special" decals, I would need to know what your requirements are.
Good communication is so very important to get things right
If you want to type out the copy in MS Word, Word Pad or other graphic proagrams with the copy and sizing, email it as a .pdf or .jpg, I can work it up. If you're not sure of what you'd like, you can make a hand sketched drawing, send it via email or USPS and I'll work up a preivew for you. I can use just plain text or a variety of fonts, graphics and other "stuff". You will be provided sample sheet(s) for your approval before final printing. Email works best or we can use U.S. mail.
Love God and Love each other (the new and greatest commandment)
Never put God in a box.
