I am creating my own custom build and would like to put my own name on the headstock

What is the best way of doing this?

I tried to create a stencil but it was so difficult to cut out correctly that it would have looked wrong.

Maybe a website where you create your own stickers?

Any ideas greatly appreciated

Thanks

got any friends that are good at art? have them paint it on then gloss over it? if you use google you'll probably find a website that does custom stickers.

I don't think I have a friend who is arty enough for that

I have seen a few sites where they will print stickers fairly cheap but they all have white backgrounds. The sticker ideally just needs to be the text

You can buy waterslide decal paper (clear or white) on eBay, it works ok but you will need to clear coat it.

you could use like a dremel drill with a router attachment thingy and carve out your name and fill it with Mother of Peal or something along those lines

That would be wicked, but sounds a bit too much for my abilites. Something basic will do me for the logo

Ordered some waterslide paper. Only cost a few pounds for a couple of sheets so hope it works well. Worth a try anyway

Quite often, if there is a Vinyl works near you (one that does stickers for cars etc), they can pop your design on the end of someone elses.

They can cut a mask, so that you can apply it, remove the text, spray your design, then peel off the mask.

Get a few done.

Thanks. I will try it myself first and consider that if it doesn't work out as I want

What is hard about it?

- "Excuse me. Do you think you could make some masks for me, with this text on?"

- "Why yes Good Sir, I do believe I can...here you go!"

- "Thank you kindly. I shall stick this on my headstock, peel out the letters, spray some paint, peel off the mask, then clear coat it, for that professional touch."

- "That sounds spiffing. Glad I could be of service...that will be two bits please."

I believe the point was missed.
"This so hard."
Roughly translates to "I agree very strongly with this idea based upon experience."
