    Posted: March/27/12 at 10:10pm
I am thinking it would be fun to add a little more pizazz to my rear windows in the form of some custom vinyl stickers based on something I have drawn.  Does anyone know of a place (be it a shop in the greater Seattle area or a website) where you can order custom designed vinyls?
 
Thanks in advance for any replies Drive

I know it is a really simple design, but I ordered the "01" stickers on my MINI from a place called Squier Design. I just showed them a photo of what I wanted and they created it for me.

I got some really nice vinyl done for my racecar by HarrisDecals.com. Check them out. They will email you a proof to view before it's final so you can revise as many times as you need. http://harrisdecals.com/

I can have anything printed on 3M printed vinyl, or even perferated vinyl for back windows.
we can do full vinyl wraps too.

FastSigns will put anything you want on a vinyl sticker.

They are a national chain, but each shop is locally owned.


The Olympia store made the Union Jack for my sunroof.

I shot him a PM as well John.  I also got the name of the guy that Seattle MINI uses.  I have an idea for the roof and want to see if I can pull it off.

Thank you all for the replies!  Sanderskog can you PM me the details about the guy Seattle MINI uses?  TimC, congrats on starting the new business!  Do you have a website set up yet that I could browse?

My idea has evolved since its initial conception but I am going to need to get some opinions from people who work with vinyls to see if it is feasible.  As it stands, I would like to wrap a portion of both rear quarterpanels with a matching design that would bleed partially into the rear windows (though not so much that it would obstruct my over the shoulder view).  I will try and post some previsualizations of how I want it to look using my limited photo editing software (aka MS paint Ermm)...

Cobalt
are you looking for something like this?


The guy that Seattle uses is out in Maple Valley and does full wraps like the Orange one at Seattle.  Tim is a Mini owner and has done a lot of bras, custom tints and vinyl.

Very cool picture John!  The general concept of the location of the grapics on that coupe are very similar to what I am now seeking to achieve.  I have attached my own previsualization of the design I would like to implement below. 

I need to work out a way to implement some of the shading details on the printed graphic to make it seem three dimensional in some areas and I am still not sure if I want to do a silver color to match my silver stripes and Black Jack graphic or if I want to do a slightly darker blue so the graphic is essentially a ghosted image.  Of course, the most basic question would be if this idea is even feasible.
 
 
Thoughts anyone?

Look cool, that should be able to be done, only thing is the trim piece at the base of the window.

Very good point, John.  Since I like the trim pieces I will probably have the graphic cut so it will appear on either side.  The points and angles at the upper right end of the design will likely not be as close to the belt line as shown since my representation does not account for the curve of the rear body panel.

I can do almost any graphic and have it printed. I'm trying to get featured for PSMINI soon as a vendor and give everyone a 15% off discount. Our website is www.autoarmornw.com

Tim did you talk to Linda ?

Cobalt you might consider blacking out your boot top and then letting someone like Time work with it in 2 pieces.

This is the Link right?

Once PSMINI gets me featured as a vendor I'd love to offer everyone the 15% off. I believe it is in the working as we speak. So by the time you're ready to have the work done you will get the deal :D

and yes John, that is the correct link to our website.

Hi Tim. I've had a word with Linda. Please PM me so we can take this discussion offline and I can help to get you set up as a featured vendor!

this is the banner that I came up with. its animated.. hope it works on this forum.
what do you think? 15% good?  I was thinking we could offer a slightly better rate on paint protection full kit installs if there was enough interest for 4+ minis. Maybe offer 20% off? anyone think there would be enough interest for this?

I used FireStormGraphix.com to create a custom set of bonnet and boot stripes on my 2006 S Convertible. They printed a repeating a gloss black skull pattern onto matte black vinyl. The came out awesome. Sara was wonderful to work with.
