Edit: Sorry for Post. Just say the Decal connection sticker post below. I used search feature, but was putting in stickers instead of decals. DERP.

Where do you all get the custom made stickers to put onto rods. I am not talking about a sticker of a fish or something, but instead, like a shiny/holographic stenciled sticker that reads XX's custom Rods, and phone number, or city, state, etc.

Hello Paul.

I make my own on a K-Sun 270, or by handwriting but have bought some from Decal Connection in the past, they do a good job.

If you are looking for a decal that will be used on all your rods as opposed to a one of a kind decal, Decal Connection is as good as it gets.

The problem with most home-made decals is that they are printed with ink that is not that stable, and they change color depending on the quality of the ink. I know of no way to know what inks are better than others, but I don't believe any "home printer" inks will hold up well in the sun. I have not found one.

I am new to all this. In fact I'm only researching, what equipment and supplies to get. I have given some thought to how to label a rod. I will be repairing and building rods mainly for myself. My thought is a clear corner mailing label or sticker, with my signature print it at any copy center (cut it to size). Apply to the rod, and a light coat of clear coat.

Decals are fine.

But, I generally prefer the look of a lettered rod by my wife who is an Artist. It seems a bit more personal.

Be safe
