The decals had gotten off to several of false starts, but I finally found the right person for the job. Brian Sorensen of Sorensen Enterprises did a great job. After looking over the artwork, he made some recommendations, including some to save money! Brian seems to have a "can do" attitude and was great to work with.

Finding some one to print bit mapped graphics was a major obstacle. I provided Brian with a 300 dpi PhotoShop file for the "SkyPiratess". The decals turned out quite good. A dot pattern is visible on close scrutiny.

warning labels smaller than a dime If you happen to have a magnifying glass, these warning labels might be of some benefit. The warning labels were printed on yellow vinyl and were printed from a 300 dpi PhotoShop file. They are impressively clean for their small size and probably would have been even sharper if I had given Brian an Illustrator or Freehand file.

The weather just hasn't been cooperative, so I finally decided to apply the skull and cross bones decals.

I should note that I took the original file, increased the resolution and converted it to vectors. Many thanks to the JimZ site.
