On the cheap on the internet...

You can copy and paste logos into a word doc or a basic art program and resize them as needed. Then print them out. On my last layout I did this around the entire inside wall and on every retaining wall. I used Modge Podge to adhere them. nd

Google Image search is great for finding logos also. Just click on the image block on Google search and type in what logo you are looking for.

Also racingdecals.com has lots of logo images. You can even buy an asortment sticker pack that will have a bunch of sponsors.

If you want to make your own, try printing them on photo paper once you have them sized correctly. After printing, you need to clear them with a matte finish. The photopaper makes your images stand out. I use a glue stick for mounting custom stickers...RM

Hey Bear,
Zanzaman, who posts here occasionally, has a great Billboards Page with both American and European downloadable signs. These are pretty much for contemporary racing. I wish he'd do some for earlier eras.

And if you haven't seen the rest of his site, especially the fold-down bookcase mini-layout, do not miss it. Great set of links, too.

I grabbed logos from all over the net, resized where necessary, and then printed them out onto Avery clear address labels. I then cut them close to the logos similar to what you would do with model car decals and applied them to my track walls which were white styrene.

I umm don't suppose anyone has a place to find sintra strips in white ? I could use evergreen but no dealer near me has anything close in sizes that could work for guard rails or bill boards etc.

thanks , Bear :wave:

Hi Bear,i just ordered 30 ,1"x48" and 5 ,2"x48" 1/8"thick white styrene strips.The co.is called Tap Plastics in Calif.The phone # is 1-800-246-5055.You can buy a whole sheet 4x8 if you want.You tell them what size you need and the length and thickness,1/16 or 1/8,and they will cut what ever you want.I even got the special glue also.The total for all the 35 strips and 2 glues and shipping to PA. was$60.00 and i think that is really cheap.Because i called Evergreen plastics up and they wanted way lot more.Plus this co.will cut any length you want.I hope this helps,Bob,hoforu
