Does anyone make new water transfer Ethyl decals? I can’t use a vinyl decal for my application.

Thanks!

Thanks, just looking for a generic Ethyl water slide like this. Hard to believe they aren’t being made.

I havent seen that decal as a water slide. I have had success using this blank stock to print my own, link below. The better your ink jet the nicier they come out. You print it and then clear coat it and then you can use it as a decal.

Although I know there are people that make custom water slides too. I remember some guy advertising on old gas a few years back about it.

Very interesting Paul, Thanks! I sure wish the market for signage was leaning way more to the water slides instead of vinyl. I don’t think people realize how much better they look and how easy they can be to work with.

Yeah, the water slides definitely have there uses! I have a tendency to use the vinyl ones 95% of the time, but I'm usually burying them in clearcoat so they look less faky.

I have the smaller version in 4" and I did make some many years ago that were the larger ones. They were and are water transfer.
