    I'm working on rehousing a cheap champ clone in a tweed 2x8 5e3 sized cab and got thinking about a badge and name for it.
    Has anyone had any luck printing logo's on to waterslide decal paper with a inkjet printer and applying them to aluminium or chrome blank plates to mount on their amps? I ordered some waterslide paper and am going to give it a try. I will clear over it when done and i'm guessing it should work as well as a home made headstock decal provided that the waterslide adheres to the aluminium or chrome plate well enough.

    If you have other options lets hear them or if you have done the waterslide thing how did it turn out?.

    Lets hear some ideas on what to call it.

    isn't inkjet ink water soluble?.... you might get better results with a laser printer...

    That's a start. Like Champion minus the Ch? I can probably fit a few words on the plate, i'll aim fore about the size of a tweed deluxe badge.

    I'm not sure, I think laser is better but I've only got a inkjet printer and I ordered inkjet waterslide paper. Hoping if I mist it with clear first it might work, I might have to clear tape it instead if it doesn't like the acrylic clear spray. It would be odd that they make inkjet waterslide paper if water ruins the print but anything is possible with ebay items.

    I got 3 a4 sheets so plenty to experiment with.

    Might start with Tweedster Deluxe, PovoTweed Special and Fandango 2x8.

    I went back and had a proper read of the listing and it says to spray a clear acrylic coat over it when done, then once soaked in water and applied it should be placed in a oven at 150c for 10 mins. Its apparently suitable for metal or ceramic cups etc. Seems it will be fine for what I plan for it.
