  1. Hello :D I have made a few decal design I'd like to print or get printed, but I am not sure about what is the best way to do it. Is it better to do it at home? Or is there services I can use? (I live in the UK, in case you have specific services to recommend) Most services online assume you want to print a large number of the same sticker, but it's not my case. I've seen also many people use the "laser printer" technique to print their own stickers at home. Do they turn out durable? Do they have good quality, is the dithering noticeable? In the past I had stickers printed on a PVC sticker sheet, but they were too think and didn't stick enough, so over a few hours they'd just come off round surfaces like minifigure heads. Also, they were very easily scratched, which is not great... If you don't mind sharing photos of your own custom decals, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)
  2. Does anybody know the print resolution of the original LEGO stickers? (In DPI or PPI) Educated guesses are welcome. Thanks!

    BR No. 74656 "Lord Dudley"

    I'd like to present my latest locomotive, loosely based on various British 0-6-0 goods engines. This MOC is a first for me in several's the first locomotive for which I've attempted to print decals, and the first I've built using BBB wheels. I'd like to thank @ScotNick for graciously granting me permission to use his magnifying glass technique for the front cab windows. Lord Dudley is named after a 15th century politician and its number is an homage to the USS Voyager (NCC-74656). Lord-Dudley-1 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Lord-Dudley-2 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The 3-axle tender holds a 9V motor (the third axle swivels to go around curves) and features the classic BR "lion-on-a-unicycle." I don't have a proper label maker, so I printed out the decal on regular paper and covered it with a slightly larger piece of adhesive laminating sheet. This leaves enough overhang of the adhesive layer to stick to the sides of the tender. Note that only the logo and the red lining are printed; the white lining is brick-built. Lord-Dudley-3 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The tender holds a battery box to power the locomotive lights. The batteries are accessible by removing the coal. Lord-Dudley-4 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Lord-Dudley-5 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Finally, Lord Dudley's driver and fireman pose along the line by their engine: Lord-Dudley-6 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Lord-Dudley-7 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Thanks for looking! Soli Deo Gloria
  7. Hello there People ! Long story short i am just starting to customize my figures with printed decals and im having problems with the quality of the prints, they are not detailed and the colours arent right, so about my printer : to be honest its not mine but of my parents, its an hp color laserjet CP1215 (printing resolution 600x600 dpi) I assume i need a printer with much higher resolution and with more colours then 3 ? Should i get a Photo Printer ? Because photo printers are pretty cheap for the resolution they offer, well as you can see im a noob and i need your help guys hahahah. I hope someone can help me out and have a great day ! Best regards, Dovakkhiin :P
  8. Hi, Does anyone happen to have a mirror of ED-209's decals? They were uploaded to photobucket and I can't seem to access them anymore? Does anyone have the decals saved? or access to an Imgur mirror or equivalent?
  9. Hey guys, newbie heree. Im just starting to make decal customs and realized that the decals i made looks very paper-ish. Do you guys have a secret recipe for it to look more legit? likee it really looks like it has been printed?
  10. Hi Over the course of the past month I've been learning the basics of LDD, LeoCad and Blender to make a Minifig portrait of friends. My first attempt turned out pretty good, so I've decided to do some more for other friends and family. I use LDD to make the models, then export to LeoCad to tweak and then export to Blender to render the final image. The first couple have gone okay, but I've hit a problem that I can't get around. I've searched the web and mostly this forum but as a novice I may be looking in the wrong place. Exporting from LDD there are some pieces that are not in the LeoCad library. I've tracked down some pieces and added to my library successfully, but it seems some head and torsos are missing and I can't find them anywhere. (See image below) How can I get around this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. With the reveal of the new UCS Snowspeeder today, I saw a lot of people complaining about the inclusion of so many stickers. I began to think about it, and found it a bit strange how the Lego community so adamantly hates stickers, since in other modeling communities decals are common place and accepted parts of the model building process. I've had some model kits before which include stickers and water slide decals, and choosing either or is optional. While it could be argued that water slide decals or dry transfer decals are even more difficult to apply than stickers, when done properly the results are spectacular and can even be made to like as if the decal was "printed." While Lego is obviously meant for kids and probably won't embrace more complex decal sheets, would having them as an option be something AFOL's would want to see? I am pretty sure plenty of Lego customizers are using them already, but I mean having decals such as dry transfer or water slide in official sets as an option for a more professional look than a sticker. I don't know if they would withstand rough play, but for an AFOL looking to display the model, they would be a great alternative. For those who don't know what a dry transfer decal or a water slide decal is, here are some examples of how they work: Dry transfer: Water slide: Thoughts?
  12. Hello there! I already opened two threads in here about decals, but with the evergrowing amount of designs that I do for Star Wars and a few other franchises, I thought it would be wiser to make a thread where I can show all of my work in a single place. Maybe a few of you find some of my designs useful? I try to make mostly original design, but sometimes, I do imitate the officially released minifigs. Also, some decals are specific requests that I got, like adapting characters to different styles or make specific changes to certain designs. I hope you enjoy them! Lando Calrissian – Cloud City Lando Calrissian – The Force Awakens Era (based on a Lego Star Wars animated series) Captain Antilles – Tantive IV Galen Erso – Lah'mu Farmer Outfit Grand Admiral Thrawn – Fixed Rank Insignia Nien Nunb Ahsoka Tano – De-Cloneified Padawan Look You can also view my collection of selfmade decals on my decal site. As I mentioned, I also do requests as long as I like them and feel like accepting their challenge, so don't be shy to ask if you need anything Star Wars related! Since I do post my finished designs on my website, I may not update this opening post with new designs; however, I will post it in here when I finish a new decal, so make sure to check the end of the thread and/or my blog website if you wanna be up to date. Currently, I have four additional decals in the works: TCW Admiral Yularen, TFA Luke Skywalker, Cassian Andor und Poe Dameron With Jacket.
  13. If it's ok with you guys, I would like to share some of my customs To make them I mainly used: decals "scotch decals" (thanks to mkeller234) permanent markers (like Stabilo OHPen Universal) You can find MOCs and other stuff on my Flickr page. Baron von Strucker This is my first custom ever. I edited a decal made by Emperor Krulos. Phil Coulson The face is from the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent from 76036, the decal of the torso is designed by Concore, and to make the I.C.E.R. I simply painted a custom gun. "Deathlok" Mike Peterson To make the torso I painted a Falcon's one. Iron Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. VS Iron Agent of Hydra The S.H.I.E.L.D. torso was a bit complicated: to make the white of the reactor I had to apply a white sticker between the torso and the transparent decal. Yes, I know I cheated...the Hydra torso is from Iron Skull (76048) Tell me what you think...I hope good things! Coming soon: - Coulson's Energy Shield - Whiplash (Iron Man 2) - Tony Stark racer (Iron Man 2)
  14. I was sure that I've already shared it on weekend, but seems that it was lost ... I've published a book with a complete set of table about the Austrian army during Napoleonic wars. Base for that were the decal set I started years ago on the base of Mosana's designs. They get a complete relaunch with all the necessary changes to be as historical accurate as possible representing the different Austrian Units. See here the decals used for the Austrian Landwehr and partly a s base also for other units: . The 2nd topic were all the custom hats and helmets for the Napoleonic times where the first item ever done in the 3d printing technology was started here after a longer discussion how the rare shakos can be recreated with other means. The 3rd part were all the renders I can do now with LDD, LDD2povray, stl2povray and povray. During Christmas I recoded a bigger part so that doing these tabels with figures in diferent positions can be done more easily. See one of the results here (Hungarian insurrectio troops): Finally I have added some textual clue mainly referencing some historical or military explanations (with references to the text in Wikipaedia) resulting now in the book published by .... Since a lot of topics and techniques created for this book were first discussed here I want to thank all the member which have contributed with their ideas ... Woody64

  18. I've seen many custom clones that use decals but the legs are posable legs. I tried asking some but they tell me its a trick of the trade and magicians don't revival their tricks. From what I hear there are 2 methods, I can only find a guide for the one that says put sticky tape on top. And that dosn't work the best. Any one wanna help me by passing on a trick of the trade to a young padawan?
  19. Is there any LEGO digital designing program available that allows for reasonably simple addition of custom decals to all parts? I'm trying to decorate parts like 11477.
  20. Hello everyone got a few designs I want to show off and get some feedback. So with out further ado let's show off some of my creations. Octan gas worker suit. Based off my late Grandfather who was a gas truck driver long ago. Syd Enoch's shirt. A bit of promotion for the game I'm developing with my team Terrier Games. Yes that is a Rope belt. A personal decal as this is my T-shirt. That is Plokman's. So what do you guys think so far? I'm not 100% on line thickness so advice on that would be welcome. More to come as I make em.
  21. The Harry Potter line was one of my favorites and I (like many) was crushed when it was discontinued. I have been working on decals of characters that were not released, based on their appearances in the Traveller's Tales games. I haven't actually used any of the decals yet, so I'm not sure how they would look on a physical figure (I'm waiting for the technology to catch up so that I can affordably make LEGO-quality figures). I'm not sure how many other Potterheads are out there, but I thought I would share a few that I have worked on. Enjoy! Nymphadora Tonks: tonks by Orpheus McAdams, on Flickr Dudley Dursley: dudley by Orpheus McAdams, on Flickr Cedric Diggory: cedric.svg-path4647-456 by Orpheus McAdams, on Flickr I welcome any feedback on these!
  22. Hey all, Been getting my bearings around the threads and all and I noticed something kind of worrying on the Custom Decal front. From what I've read there seems to be a difficulty with having white in you decal design. Especially if your are making your decals with something like Testors Waterslide decal paper or similar. My question is is there a reason that White can't be printed with a inkjet printer and show up on the decals. I know the reason why Metallic colors can't be done since Printers can't print metallic (which you think by now we would have ones with addable inks that can) without it just being Grey. I'm sorry if this has been explained else where I don't want to make a thread on a covered subject. But I thought I'd ask the experts. Main reason I ask is I want to have whites for the eyes of my minifigures with glasses like Good Cop's and also you got to have white for the Octan logo. Anyway let me know and I'll figure it out from the pros. Thanks all, Plokman
  23. This took be about a week to make and get perfect. First up is regular Dr. Malcolm And the best version of him.... SHIRTLESS All the ladys want him. Hope u like them. fixed vertions
  24. So, I've seen people saying; "Man, I really wished I had a minifigure of Lowery, the cool guy with the Jurassic Park t-shirt in Jurassic World!" Well guess what. You can have him. That's right, for my first ever decal design, I have designed Lowery's torso! Below will be the torso decal for you; just copy it in to a word document and it should be the correct size. Print however you like to make your minifigure and you'll have your very own Lowery! Please post pictures if you do use it, and make sure to comment how I can improve my decal designs! ----- Here's my test with the decal! My printer is rubbish, so imagine what you could o if you have a quality printer!
  25. Hi there, I've been looking everywhere for some high quality sticker paper for customizing minifigs. I'm seeing in videos and pictures everywhere that people are using clear sticker paper on minifigs, but they're not waterslide. I've searched all over the place, and I haven't found out anything about it. Not even the Eurobricks search function can shed some light on this! Anyways, I'm hoping to find some that are reasonably priced, high quality, easy to apply, and work with an inkjet printer. I don't really like the idea of waterslide decals because it seems to take a lot of skill and time commitment, both of which I really don't have much of. While white paper seems to do well (especially since you can't print white), but I'd prefer to use transparent (obviously I'd need white paper when I would need to print bright colors also, so yes, I guess I am going to need both white and transparent). I have been hearing a lot more recently about "labels". What are they? Is it just another name for a decal or sticker? Or is it literally using the materials that were originally meant for labeling for minifigure customization? Or is it something different altogether? I've seen professionals online use transparent stickers amazingly. TheCooperWorks and those old BrickForge decals from a few years back have proven that sticker paper is a suitable alternative. So please, if there any reasonably priced, high quality, easy to apply decals that work with an inkjet printer that you know of, I'd love to hear about it.
