RC Models...

We've found this great article from to help you make your own labels for your RC model - never more will you have to purchase expensive decals, you can now custom-make your own!

"For starters you will need to decide what sort of sticker you want to put on your RC model.

In my case I wanted to put my web site logo on my RC car. You can use any graphics editing software such as Photoshop, Corel, Illustrator, Pixelmator (Mac OSX), even MS Word. As long as you can print to a color printer you should be good. You can “gang up” as many logo’s or images you want on a single sheet of paper, just be sure to leave enough room to cut them out. In my case I used Adobe Illustrator to create my site logo and print my stickers. After you have settled on your art work the next thing you will need to do is get clear labels. Avery makes a clear label that works perfect for this. You can get them in full 8 1/2 X 11 sheets from Office Max or Staples or order them online. They come in Laser or Ink Jet printer style, make sure to get the correct one for the printer you are using. Once you have printed out the artwork on the clear paper you will want to apply some clear package tape over them. The reason for this is twofold, first it provides a rich glossy shine to your stickers, secondly it protects the sticker from weather and scratches.

That’s pretty much it. Cut out your stickers and enjoy".
