Hah, I've been away a while.
But to answer the question; You need an artist at that point. The picture is too fuzzy for any program to handle.

Dare I ask... I was trying to find someone to do these in a transfer, but as I struck out, a decal is just as good...

But wow... those graphics above look awesome..!!

Cheers..!!

Excellent work on the decals...how 'bout more Triumph decals?

What scanner are you using to scan the decals? What software are you saving them with?

Keep up the good work....

Any scanner will work.
I use three software mostly.
Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and a sign making software called "omega" by Gerber Scientific.

I can make Triumph stuff, or any kind of design I find interesting.
But I'm not automatically familiar with every bike and year and model I'm afraid.
It seems to work well if people post a half decent picture of what they want.
I re-draw all my artwork so there is no copyright issue.

I guess I do a lot of BSA cause that's the way I roll.
But I have collected pictures and links to artwork for a lot of marques.
Put in a request!

Ron, if you are looking in. I have access to the printer all next week and I will finish those stars for you.

Cheers,
Gunk

Very sharp!
I should mention that the "gold" (actually brass) will fade very quickly.
If it was mine... I would make sure I have a few copies of the stencil so I could touch it up year to year.
It MIGHT be a good idea to cover it up with some clear. Maybe I should do some experiments.


BTW, you clearly have too many BSA's, good on ya.
