We design decals(waterslide decals-not peel and stick except by special request) with the graphics you need to put them on your diecast vehicles, model train, and buildings. We also customize all  brands of die cast. If you are looking for 1 or 100 or more die cast vehicles designed to your specifications we can probably do the job. If you need a large order of die cast custom ink stamp imprinted (minimum order 150 units) we can facilitate that for you from design to delivery of the finished product.

We have customized every size from matchbox up to pedal cars! (We can do any scale from 1/87 to pedal car size.) So far, any thing a customer has requested we have been able to do so odds are pretty good we can do what you need done for your unique truck.

We have the ability to print the color white! You cannot do that with a laser or inkjet printer. We also have the ability to print in metallic gold and silver. Inkjet and laser jet printed decals will wash out when applied on darker colors like red and black. They look great on the decal paper your printed them on until they are applied. Then the paint causes the colors to fade away when applied. To avoid this problem they must be undercoated with a layer of white ink. Our special dedicated ALPS decal printers give us do this.

The email link is at the bottom of the page. Feel free to contact us with your ideas and we'll be glad to get back with you and kick the tires on your project to see what we can come up with. If you have a particular design based on a real life vehicle, it is helpful if you can include pictures attached to an email that we can look at to help work out the design on your truck. There is no obligation on your part when you make an inquiry. We will attempt to give you a cost estimate on your project which is dependent on the cost of the die cast stock and the details of your graphics. We are reasonably priced. When you order a custom truck from us you are getting a unique one of a kind and probably the only one of its kind with your custom graphics applied on customized water slide decals.

Policy change:  When I started this business in 97 for the last 13 years I based this business on trust.  Trust that you the customer would
receive the best possible product and trust that you would pay me for my time and materials in making your project.  I would ship the work
immediately when completed so you could receive it as soon as possible  and trust the customer to pay the agreed on price.

I can no longer base this business on trust.  I have been eating too many no pays.  When I invest hours of labor into designing a project
and then go to the expense of printing it I need to be compensated.  This is my living.    It is unfortunate
that these things occur but this is my livelihood and I must protect it.

Therefore due to those circumstances nothing will ship until it is paid for and to get your project started you will need to put down
a $35 dollar down payment (if your project cost less you will get a refund)  I regret having to implement this policy but I have to protect
my livelihood. 

Sincerely, Joseph Schulte

Hi Joe,
Just wanted to thank you again for your great decals that you produced for my truck model. I won its class in three of the four shows that I've entered, except for Second in one.
That was the 2016 IPMS National Convention, a year ago. There were models from around the world, and it took a respectable Second in that competition. The cool thing was that it was photographed (and published) by FineScale Modeler, as well as Airfix Magazine and was also shown on the IPMS International website.
Your beautiful gold decals set it off perfectly. I could have done them in a non-metallic color, with less clarity, but that wouldn't have given it the realism I was seeking. You nailed it, and again, I thank you.
I have a couple of projects in mind that will probably need your expertise. I hope you'll be able to do them for me!
If I can provide any sort of recommendation/testimonial to your website, please let me know.
Ed Allen
