I think the decal guys are going to put a "hit" out on me, lol!
It will be a drive-bye Luthiering
I finally decided on a logo and ordered mine. They came in yesterday.
1 of Mike's sheets got shipped with mine too and it looks like his is chrome.
All of them look great.
Those look fantastic!
Spotted this thread and thought I'd take a punt on some for my latest build.
I have to say I'm very impressed with the quality, and it only took 7 days for them to arrive in my letterbox from my initial email to them.
Thanks Mike for bringing these guys to our attention.
Hey, that looks really nice. You are welcome.
That's what I need! Looks awesome against the black background.
Can I still apply those to a TruOil finished neck? TruOil tends to be very thin and I read those are thick, so it will create a ridge/3D effect at the logo right? I actually like that.
TruOil has a slightly yellow tint and may affect the sheen too.
any opinion of whether it'll still work?
Maybe if you apply it on top of the finished neck it'll be okay? Or you can finish the back of the neck with oil, but spray the face of the headstock with satin nitro.
I haven't used it with Tru Oil, but like with any finish, if it's thin enough, you could see the edges.
You're welcome buddy! Looks great!
I'd say that you can do it either way. It will just take a lot more coats to bury it with Tru-Oil, but in my experience, I think it could be done. I buried regular water-slide decals in Tru-Oil without going to any extreme measures. And I don't think that you'd get too much of the yellowing effect once you sand it level. The finish right over top would be pretty thin, but it would definitely yellow up the surrounding wood. I think if I was going to use Tru-Oil and these though, that I'd just apply the decals over the top and let them stand out. I think my real fear would be that unless I built it up so thick I could bury it, that there would be build-up in the nooks and crannies of the small detail areas of the decal. I think it would be hard to get any small interior spaces leveled out.
I just found this thread in time to reorder electroformed logos...thanks!
It is worth bringing this thread back to life. Most of the information here is still current. I just received my order of one 8.5” by 11” page of logos that I created printed in Black Nickel Metal stickers. Different colors have different prices but the Black Nickel stickers are $28. Shipping is $35 and is shipped by DHL and arrives in about 4 days. You must send your artwork in Adobe Illustrator format. If your logo has fonts it is best to vectorize the fonts in case their computer does not have those specific fonts on it. I did not have Adobe illustrator but you can download it for a 7 day trial. I have created a copy of my logos in inkscape (a free vector graphics program similar to AI) and have sent it to Selina to see if that format will also work. It should. When I receive her answer I will update this thread with the info. If you are unfamiliar with metal electroform stickers check it out. They are very professional looking. Below is the contact info and website. I was very satisfied with my logos. The picture is not that clear but the actual printing is clear and crisp.

Selina got back to me on using inkscape. I did not get a clear answer specifically on inkscape.
She said the following:
Logo artwork format we need AI,PDF or CDR format
If you did not have Adobe Illustrator I would try sending her an inkscape vector file and see if it would work.
As I said I am VERY happy with the quality of the logos I received.
