Can anyone recommend a company that can do me a set of custom wheel decals for a 46mm carbon clincher?

So far eBay seller and silk graphics have ignored my emails, so would like any suggestions

    They look much better without the decals anyway... :wink:

    I took the big "Reynolds" stickers off of my 46 tubs but left on the little Reynolds shield logo beside the valve hole. Felt like a moving advertising hoarding with both the Reynolds lettering and the "Scott" lettering on the frame in equally big white letters!

    I'm after black decals anyway, or maybe just the small white sticker?

    I got a set of decals from an ebay seller a year or so ago, but the seller is no longer active. It was only after applying the decals that I decided I preferred the wheels without them anyway... :wink:

    Looks best with just the small white sticker IMO (the shield thing). But it's probably easiest to get that as part of a full set of stickers. You just need to keep an eye out on ebay, there are one or two sellers that do them (or there used to be..)

    How about these? They offer customised colours too, including "dark label" style.

    There's some good advice on custom decals here:

    I'd be wary of ebay. You'll probably end up with some cheap paper based decals - which wont last long at all.

    I got a set of these and they look great:

    I wouldn't necessarily agree. I bought some from eBay for my old Mavic Cosmic Carbones and they were excellent quality decals, certainly not paper based ... although an absolute pig to get on the wheels due to the length!

    No particular reason why a well-established ebay seller should be selling something of inferior quality to any other small web-based seller. But the ad on ebay will probably say what the decals are made out of.

    That eBay seller won't reply to my message so I'm not using them, and graphic shack don't have the correct decal, but thanks for the suggestions.

    They look quite good without anyway
