in MTB general
I have a set of DT Swiss wheels (I have no idea what model all I can just about make out is the very faint DT Swiss on them) and the decals have pretty much faded away to just bare white sticker which look pretty ugly. I want to revamp the whole bike so I have ordered lots of new bits but the fact that the wheels look ugly with the white stickers is doing my nut! My choices are to just remove the old decals and leave the rims bare, or get new decals. I contacted a firm that do custom decals but they wanted £22 for 4 stickers, so I then contacted TF Tuned (who are the DT Swiss service centre in the UK) and they are great people and were very helpful but they wanted £18 for 4 stickers. So I then went to the very top and emailed DT Swiss who said they don’t have them as they just use waterslide decals now. Have I exhausted my options, are there any other suggestions out there or do I just pay the £18 for stickers?
How much did your bike cost?
How much did all your other gear cost?
£18 isn't really a lot in comparison is it?
Try searching Slik Graphics based in Sweden I think? Good range, price, custom colours and usually free postage. Other sites like Indibike or Inkmyride are also worth a look.
Price may not be much cheaper but you can get exactly what you want.
I purchased these for a previous bike from Slik Graphics for around £35 for full front and rear for the genuine look:-

Here is a link to their rim decal page: (Prices vary from £12 to £60). The cost of production will be the same, so I'm assuming the difference is the licence fee extracted by the wheel maker. But I guess it could be that the expensive ones are still paying off the one-off cost of the original graphics, because of low sales. Their DT Swiss graphics are priced between £12 and £19 depending upon style and model
