Product information

Decal (diːkəl, a short form of English decalcomania "to transmit") is the common name for wet sliding pictures in model making. They are mostly used for lettering on models that are too fine or complex to paint or print. Decals have to be moistened briefly before being applied to the model in order to activate the adhesive layer on which they are printed.
Until now, decals were very laboriously produced by screen printing or with the help of expensive solvent printers. The thermal transfer printers, like at home, cannot print white and do not deliver opaque colors. It was not possible to make your own decals until now. But that has an end:
You provide the template. We deliver the decals!
For the first time, we offer you the opportunity to order your own UV decals in digital printing. UV-curing ink (UV printing for short) lies on the medium and does not penetrate the film. This makes the pressure appear a little raised and can be felt. The ink does not dry but is hardened with UV light. A water-cooled UV lamp is built into the printer for this purpose, which irradiates the ink with UV light during the printing process and thereby hardens it.
The print quality is excellent, the white coverage almost perfect. Even behind glass decals can be printed!
UV prints are purely manual work, because each sheet has to be placed and fixed individually. But the result is absolute premium class!
Decals / water slide films for model making are produced as sheets using UV printing. The standard film for water slide films in UV printing has a thickness of only 7 µm, making it ultra-thin. For large-area decals, we recommend the 13 µm film to minimize stretching of the film during transfer.
Please read the instructions "UV-Decals selber gestalten" in the download area of our website carefully before you start designing your own decals!
