well for my guitars , since i make my own body ,, in keeping with traditional cbg theme .. i put my logo where the cigar logo would go on the box . i have also done the head stock on other guits .
and i simply use t-shirt transfer paper , and an iron. it works . (better on light color woods tho) you can see how here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qli-2VNODN8
and here's a picture
Awesome. Thanks for the info. I love this site.
the iron on will give a bit of outlne edge too .. but it can blend in nicely sometimes , and you can pre- trim it too . dont really need protection .. its kind of self included . clear coats and shellac will darken the image (maybe too much ).
practice on scrap first , it can be tricky ;-)
I have burned it on with wood burner, wrote it with Sharpie, and painted on my logo.
I wood burn mine on but it is hard to keep it neat, I'm no Careless John with a hot iron!
I put mine on with a rubber stamp and acrylic craft paint.
The rubber stamp is a good idea. I think I'll check into a custom stamp.
that does look pretty cool ? are they cost effective ?
