      Oh man, I can't show my face around here. Cut it out guys. :p

      Seriously though, I've been so busy with so many things that I haven't had a chance to send them to the printer. Soon, though. Soon. I promise. Really sorry for all the delays.

      Regards,

      do you design your own decals?
      because thats the whole flying colors thing...you design your decals and then a professional printer prints them on decal paper...am i right...

      sorry for the stupid question

      Hi Konrad,
      That's right. All the artwork is created by me. It's a long process done is layers, from the clear coat to the final color (black). Each color is printed one at a time and everytime it has to be laid down in the right spot to create the design you want. If the screen is off by just a little bit, for each color, then the decal is ruined. But the presses are pretty good these days and you don't get too many decals out of register.

      Regards,

      ahmed
