    Hello there,

    Can any body guide us to a quality graphics dealer please? We are just in the process of buying a 'proper motor home' (I currently have a panel van conversion ! We have to start somewhere i suppose!:Sad:) The graphics are a little 'dog eared' and I would like to improve the vehicles look with a set of decals. They do not have to be original designs(Auto cruise Star blazer) just 'prettier'!:thumb:
    Kindest regards Paul

    hi most sign makers use laser cut vinyl and would probably be able to do a match on the existing graphics.

    artall signage may be one to try on your doorstep. http://www.artall.co.uk

    Not much use to you Paul as this was in Carlisle, but I had the same problem, Autocruise Starseeker. The graphics were crap, all peeling and shrinking after only 2.5 years.

    Went to see a proper graphics company and they copied them from the originals & applied them. Cost me less than 200 quid and when I picked the van up I asked at what speed he thought they would be OK to. "They are the same as Virgin Atlantic planes are covered with so you'll be OK as long as you don't go over 600 mph. :Eeek: :thumb:

    The decals are put to attract new buyers, not to last the lifetime of the van it would seem. :Doh:

    Can I just ask on this thread.
    Was it difficult to take the old ones off as we are having a right mess trying to get old ones off.

    The company we spoke to said £500 for a 28 foot rv
    Then said if we wanted him to take old off would be about £500 to remove old ones.

    I'm sure it will depend on how the originals were applied. Why not ask what is involved in removing them as it's so expensive.

    Ours were simple self adhesive ones that you can soften with a hair dryer, then remove any adhesive left with Olive Oil.
