Looks good. The "SGP" colors look kind of funky, though. So you can print your own graphics?

Too many colors. too busy. And you already know about the colors being off. What are those three green marks that head towards the seat cover?

I think that is cool....I mean it would be great to be able to print your own graphics....makes experimenting cheaper....once you get the process figured out what do you think the cost will be to the general public? I give it a thumbs up:thumbsup: and can't wait to see your next revision.

too busy??? how old are you??? lol

the colors didn't turn out good we used process ribbons maybe next time were use spot colors.

the 3 green marks is the monster energy logo. i was trying to get the affect of them clawing in to the gas tank.

the whole set-up cost was around 2500 to get them printed. the printer was 2 grand, then we had to buy print ribbons, and the special vinyl(that we didn't even use) and the clear protective vinyl.

all I printed on was standard 3.5 mill white vinyl as a test, like i said test, this was the first time we ever printed multi colors, we didn't want to mess up the good vinyl, so we used some scrap vinyl we had laying around the shop.

I used processed colors, next time i'm going to try spot colors, just hope I'll get them right!!!

Right now I have 1 race on them and a presswash. and so far they have stayed on pretty well even just for being cheap vinyl. just a few design errors in my templet, that i trimed with a knife.

At this time I'm just going to be making graphics for myself. Untill I can learn my mechine better, and get templets made up. but theres so many people that can make graphics, so it really wouldn't benfit me that much.

but if the right time comes then i might do some thing. I don't know if i'll do custom stuff. or just give you a few opitons.
