Where to get full colour with white printing on clear

Post by Platypus »

Has anyone ever found a print shop that will print white ink/toner onto a clear sticker? I've asked a few places and they all said no.
Official LEGO sets do this all the time for stickers. Even torso prints on a dark torso for light colours, with the white as an undercoat.

I would be looking for 1 to three letter size sheets, just for a bunch of small stickers.

REPLIES FROM WHATSAPP:
Dawn P: Check with @Robin Sather He has someone he likes and you can ask about the white

Snowy: it seems like in the lego train world, everyone gets decals made by OKBrickworks. They may be a good place to start. It seems they are reachable on Facebook.

Me: OKBrickWorks advertises white on clear in the first line under services.

Cool. Local might be better/easier. I'm only looking for 1 to 3 sheets.

Robin: Rapid Copy and Print in Abbotsford. Ask for Danielle.
They've done all the BrickCan badge, award, and trophy brick printing for the past few years. UV printing, not engraving. [including white ink]

Emailed Rapid and they don't do white ink.

Emailed Second City on Venables (here inEast Van) and they do.
"We do have clear adhesive vinyl sticker and we are able to print spot white in places needed as you requested.
We have a 4sq/ft minimum as this material is printed off a roll and not sheets. White ink does up the costs on the prints. TOTAL: $90.81 (TAX INCLUDED)

More than I wanted to spend. Anyone have anything they want on clear vinyl? I only need maybe about 1sf.

Could they do a couple of different logo's on the sheet,if so I might be interested.Maybe the VLC logo and Canadian Pacific.Do they have to be adhesive?,I like the idea of the sticker they put on your car window to remind you of your oil change,they peel off your window,they stay in place,they can be removed and used for something else.

Thanks David
