For those asking about signatures I had one of the sponsors WTP-INC make me these peel and stick signatures,
Mine because of the long wording is 3/16" tall x 3/4" long
Cost was $40 for the plate they need to make and then about $25 for 1000 stickers.
Dicknite does not eat these as well.

We did a bible school item that was gonna require lots of decal a couple of years ago. So after doing some hunting we came up with a cheaper way.
Ok, getting back to the stick on signatures. You can buy water type or rub on decal blanks. They come in clear or white back ground. A box of 25 sheet are around $25.00 USD that is, and are standard size of 8.5 x 11.
They work with your computer printer, and they have it in Inkjet or Laser Paper depending on the type of printer you use.
Here's the name of the place that we ordered from.

Do you have the contact details of the place that makes them?

I googled it, and came up with nothing good.
Could you list a little more info?

I use the water transfer decal sheets. After printing I spray the decal sheet lightly with acrylic clear spray and let dry. The cut decals, dip in water until paper will slid off. Then carfully slid decal onto bait. Oh, I also apply one coat of sealer before applying decal to help it slid better and make it easier to position.

Here is another option, but I have not tried it yet:
AveryŽ Clear Full-Sheet Labels for Inkjet Printers

Decalpaper.com - Water-Slide Decal Paper
Laser & inkjet water
This is where we ordered from.
They worked great, You can put any thing on a decal.

This may be a silly question but I have to ask.Could'nt you get into some sort of trouble for that? Thats kind of like putting a bandit lure in a Lucky Craft box and selling it as a Lucky Craft.If you are selling a lets say Norman but it is labeled as a predator bass bait I just wouldn't think that that would go over real well with the big boys.Now if it said painted by predator bass baits I would think that you would be OK. Like I said tho this may be a goofy question.

Mark, I did post the link above in my responce
I would hope you cannot get in trouble, guy's sign baits, This is just my sig. as I cannot write well.

I've used the full sheet labels. Once you figure out how big you want the name, I.E. "G-MAX Baits" you can copy and paste a whole sheet and print it off on your computer. I got enough labels on one piece of paper to last my lifetime. 2 ton epoxy doesn't eat it either.

Some guy's have been saying you can print off on computer but can you print small enough ?
All my wording is only 3/4" long total
Posted 26 December 2008 - 06:04 PM
I hand sign all of mine using a fine tip Sharpie Marker.I do it in a space of about 1/2x1/4 inch.
Dont like gawky labels,but thats just me.

The size you can print off is governed by the computer program. I think I used an 8 font and it isd very small. I would have a picture but am not computer/camera literate. Good luck.

I use microsolf office, and it has it set up to only go down to a number 8 in size. But it will go to a smaller size.
All you need to do is high light the letter size at the top and change it to a smaller number, the hit the enter key. This is the only way you can get it to reduce it.

I have also used the water slide paper for different things,I bought mine in a pkg of 5 from Micro-Mark: The Small Tool Specialists | Tools and Supplies for Building Scale Models of Railroad Trains, Ships, Planes, Cars, Trucks and More. just be sure to lightly spray some clear as mentioned, 1 sheet will print enough signatures to last years at a small font:)

I had a couple of rubber stamps made. They look kind of like the old heddon lettering.
