How to create decals with a laser printer

Decals can be used for a number of purposes. Many custom model builders use decals to put the finishing touches on their creations, while artists making pottery may use decals to create a certain finishing technique. Decals can also be used as temporary tattoos or be placed in scrapbooks. Whatever your need is for a decal, if you have a laser printer and a decal sheet, you can create custom decals yourself.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Vinyl decal sheetsScissorsUtility knife

Instructions

Printing the Decal

1 Test print the image on a regular sheet of white printer paper. Since the vinyl decal sheets are much more expensive than printer paper, this will let you know if there are any adjustments that need to be made to the printer or the image file without ruining a sheet of vinyl.

2 Remove the printer paper from the printer. Insert a vinyl decal sheet and make sure the paper guides are adjusted to the edges of the vinyl sheet.

3 Make sure the correct side of the vinyl decal sheet is facing up. Many printers have an image on the paper tray indicating which side of the sheet will be printed. If the image is printed on the peel off backing side, the sheet will be ruined.

4 Print the image on the vinyl decal sheet. Use scissors or a utility knife to cut the decal out of the sheet.
