Decals for Auto Restoration Using Custom Dry Transfers.
Do you need replacement decals for airplane or car restoration? If yes, custom dry transfers are the ideal solution. Examples of their uses include decals for speedometers, gauges, controls, switches, faceplates, VIN tags, oil filter text, and for any other interior or under-the-hood part. Transfer decals go on in a single step, and the quality is excellent. No other method will get you as close to an OEM look as our custom dry transfers for auto restoration. If your company restores complete vehicles or you concentrate specifically on speedometers, gauges, controls, or other dashboard parts, we’re ready to be a helpful, professional resource.
We’ve seen custom dry transfers work perfectly for interior applications in numerous classic car restorations. We make them directly from digital layouts using lacquer ink with lacquer adhesive. You can spec out white, black, any Pantone color, or choose foil or metallic for a different effect. The appearance will be superior to other methods because the adhesive is only on the image area. It means there is no carrier media to blur the edges. Once the decals are rubbed on, the graphics will look as though they are printed directly on the surface. You can apply dry transfers to plastic, metal, glass, and wood. They go on quickly and look professional.
Custom Auto Restoration Decals are a Focus at Image Transfers.
We gravitate toward high-end decals for auto restoration because we’re perfectionists too. Our people understand that instrument panel dry transfer decals need to be crisp and precise – because they are highly visible and crucial to a fully accurate restoration. When your client sits behind the wheel of a car you’ve restored, he’ll first notice what’s directly in front of him. Therefore, the speedometer and gauge restoration work needs to be impressive. We realize it’s a significant undertaking to restore dashboard parts and we go out of our way to help.
Our custom dry transfers for speedometers and gauges are created with adhesive-backed lacquer ink. It means no additional adhesive, water, or solvents are involved in the application process. Also, the absence of carrier media found in other methods provides crisp-looking edges that are sharp and neat. The dry transfers are applied with a burnisher that we include with each order, and It’s as easy as rubbing them down. People who have tried other types of decals are surprised by the quick one-step application the first time they try it. Having fewer steps saves you valuable time if you’re turning around a car restoration on a tight deadline.

I am restoring a 1994 chevy blazer , My dashboard switches are badly worn and I cannot get new factory replacements. Is this something you might be able to help me with?I am running out of options. TY
Nick, Thanks for your inquiry. We can certainly help you with this project. If you can provide artwork, great. It needs to be in vector format. Pricing for transfers are published right on our website. You can probably gang-up/repeat all the dashboard switches on one letter size sheet. Artwork can be cut apart before application. If you need us to create artwork/text for you there is an additional charge and we would need more information and guidelines you want to follow to give you a cost. We would send you back a PDF for approval before proceeding with the transfer. Please get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the studio at (212) 928-7987 if you have further questions. We hope we can work on this project with you. Luann
Hello. I need the word “START” in white letters. I have a photo of the letter size and style – Helvetica ? – available to text or email your. Please advise my next step.
Warren, We can certainly create a custom dry transfer of the word START for you. Clients usually set the text, gang it up on one of our artboard size areas and drag & drop at our website for order. Letter is the smallest size we offer. That cost is $175.00 and enough room for you to add additional words or gang up. If you need us to set art/text that would be additional and we can send you a PDF for approval. If you have further questions just call the studio at (212) 928-7987. We hope to work on this project with you. Luann
