Custom Decals

When you finish putting together your model forms, adding Decals gives that attention to detail that makes it more real.

Our Custom Decals for Modelism services allow you to print any graphic on water-removable decal paper. The plastic film is very thin (about 15 micron) and transparent and the support is light blue to better see all the details, especially those in white.


The range of our printable colors is composed of:

  • white
  • four-colour printing
  • silver
  • metallic colors.

We can Print Custom Decals on specific request , starting from a vector file provided by the customer.


Custom decals, like our catalog decals, are not precut but printed on a single transparent film. They must be engraved before application.

A precut may be requested which provides for an additional cost and construction limits depending on the measures.

File Specifications for Printing Custom Decals

The file for Custom Decals printing must be created with a vector graphics program (Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, etc) and saved in layers in .pdf or .eps format with the fonts transformed into lines and curves and not free.


The file must be structured in layers, one for the colors (CMYK), one for the white color and the base for the other colors whose inks are transparent (CMY), one for the silver color and another layer separated for each other metallic color you need to print.


In the level for the white, silver and metallized colors, (named with the color they contain) the shapes can be represented in 100% magenta color.

The level of the metallic color (for example Gold, Bronze, Copper ...) must have an equal and corresponding shape in the silver level.

A level for cut path (optional and with an extra cost).

Custom Decals Printing Cost

The cost of Custom Decals Printing is approximately 30.00 euros for an A4.

The printing cost only applies if the file can go directly to print, if there are changes to be made, necessary for the correct printing, the cost will be shown separately and you can choose whether to make them yourself.

The control of the file will be a check limited to the correct printing (layers control, presence of free fonts, open shapes), any errors of holes in the objects or division of levels are not part of the basic control.

We can make Personalized Decals even starting from high quality photos , in this case an expense item will be dedicated to the installation costs to create the file necessary for the correct setting in print. This cost does not entitle the exclusivity of the project which, as a rule, will be included in the graphic archive after six months. However, the customer will have the possibility for the following six months to reprint the project without additional costs beyond the printing costs.

Attention! For this type of service we have a maximum of works that we can perform every month.
