    Ha! You're like the TDPRI agent for them. Between you and Jonathan, you've certainly got them some extra business!

    Ummmm, my gratitude and appreciation? They do not have any capital value, of course.

    I am really quite excited about these! So you can have the knowledge that you have potentially improved both my personal wellbeing and the aesthetic standards of my amateur luthieral output.

    I was just kidding. Let me know when the email is sent out so I can give them a heads up.

    I knew you were!

    I wasn't so much, though. I'm really pleased by this thread!

    So, what is the adhesive like on these? Is it more like a sticker or is it a like a cling stick (like water slide decals)? If it's sticker-like, I'm wondering if a wipe on finish would do the trick, maybe just a couple coats to keep it in place and protected, but let it show a little proud of the surface?

    It's more like a sticker. I think your plan will work.

    Yes, that's the same pricing they quoted me for my order. But it was like $40 for DHL shipping on top. So 2 sheets of chrome and 1 of gold plus shipping ran me $110. Then they charge an extra 6% to cover Paypal fees unless you want to wire them the $. But I got 24 logos per sheet, so 72 total, so the average cost was only about $1.61 ea. Not bad, but it's probably close to a lifetime supply for me.

    Keeping a very close eye on this. I may have to do this for my next few builds! (And maybe some effects pedals too!)

    Putting everything together for an order today. Am I correct that 225 x 320mm is 8.85 x 12.59 inches. I'll have to make a custom paper size but I'm wondering how close to the edge I can go, trying to maximize my $ worth.

    Ok done. I sent them a high res PDF printed from a CAD file. I mentioned Mike and Jonathon sent me, who knows maybe at some point they will give you guys some kick back.

    Also if anyone in the states orders anything, feel free to tell them to ship it with James Sellards order and I will promptly mail it out to you when it arrives. Might save you a few bucks on shipping.

    I got it pretty close to the edge and filled up my sheet. You can see it in the original post.

    James, you should tell them to ship it to me so it is with mine and Jonathan's order to save your shipping. We are both in California. PM me and I will give you details.

    Thanks for the offer, I sent them an email, we will see if it gets shipped with yours. I haven't paid yet, waiting to get a return email with the paypal info and the total I owe.

    Exactly, this stuff would work great for all kinds of things. I was thinking of even doing silver pinstripe or line art on a black body with this.

    With FX pedals, you could really add some sick detailing.

    It's still 5:22am there so it will take a couple hours but I will Skype them and also tell them it is okay.

    Just to reiterate. Shipping is $35 to the US for "fast" 3-5 day via DHL. You can get a one week shipping for $20 also via DHL.
