    Wanted: Avery Weatherproof Labels - or:Do you also need custom stickers?

    Dave mentioned that I might want to consider using these to make my own wheel centers. No-one (CompUSA, Office Depot, Best Buy, Staples etc) carries these locally. I found them on the online Staples and Office Depot sites but only in packs for 50 sheets (100 labels) for around $50.00. I can afford $50 but I really don't need 50 sheets, would be a waste to use only say two sheets and the rest just sit there and rot. So I figured I can try to fix this in one of two ways:

    1. If you happened to have these and are willing to spare say five sheets let me know how much you want for them. I think the number is 15516 but I may be mistaken. They are weatherproof and are large, only two per 8 1/2 x 11 sheet.

    2. Alternately, if you are also in need of having custom stickers printed out on weatherproof labels speak up here please. If enough folks are thinking the same thing then I will consider buying the big pack and we will either split them up or I will print out the custom stickers for you. Ifanyone has good picts or clip art of the Ferrari decals (engine, door, under the front bonet, radiator etc) send them on. I have a couple done on the shiny tin foil type sticker, if anyone is interested I will scan them in and make them availiable.

    On a side note....I also have the small Ferrari window stickers I can scan in because I will be buying a pack of the clear labels. I paid a pretty penny for these and while they are great, let's be honest...there is no reason to pay big $$$ for a sticker the size of a postage stamp. The little touches like this should not break your build budget.

    Anyway let me know folks.

    Here is another idea for you. Rather than using the expensive Avery stickers. You could also have your art work printed at a mini lab as a photograph. That would cost you very little about .25 cents a print. Then laminate them so their weatherproof, and use something like carpet tape or some other weatherproof double stick tape on the back. One thing I also did in the past for wheel caps was to take the print, cut it out and pour some of that 2 part clear glaze coat stuff they use on furniture. (good ole Home Depot) When it cures you have a build of about an eighth of an inch thick. Very shinny and looks great.

    As far as the windows go, I was planning on setting up the artwork on a small screen and screen printing it on the windows from the interior of the glass. Probably with some automotive clearcoat mixed with a little white base coat. That would give it a frost look after it was applied and look OEM.

    Just my 2 cents

    I am interested in the small window stickers. If possible, I would like to buy 12 stickers, 6 in white and 6 in black. If black is not available, I would be willing to buy 10 in white. My email address is hillr@comcast.net

    Please advise?
