no worries...i feel your pain. i work in automotive and have to deal with kids wanting to put a 4inch exhaust on their honda civics or mechanics that don't know what a wheelbase is or the difference between diameter and circumference. these are the same ppl that work on your brakes dammit!
thx for the support...guess it's time to dust off the old illustrator 10 :P

mm, i did type it all in caps... hahah, yeh thats my old man grumpy fucker steez.
i deal with people all day who don't know how to setup design for process and call themselves designers, or they just say: yup i tinker with photoshop I can do it myself. apologies for snapping into default mode!
good way to save $ if you do actually know how to do this stuff right first time.
hope they come out sweet bro!

design your shit as VECTORS for vinyl cutting... otherwise you'll be wasting everyones time
sign shops do vehicle graphics, i.e: print, laminated then cut to shape... kinda pricey but pretty sick and if applied properly will last a while

A vinyl decal would probably work better than their method though. Wish more companies would do custom jobs for reasonable prices but there's not too many out there...

i'm leaning more towards vinyl...seems like paint is alot of work for what could possibly be nothing. thanks for the advice guys it was much appreciated.
btw BA i've been reading yr angry snowboarder blog...LOVE IT!

|BurtonAvenger||Vinyl lasts for years spray paint lasts for days|

|TofuSama||As far as I know, spray painting chips easily, can crack easily, while vinyl is a lot tougher, and flexible. Painting is a very time-consuming method, so if you can get a vinyl one printed, it's the better option.|
