creating a replacment decal for a 2008 RV

I photographed the decals on the RV and cleaned up the image and printed them on a

laser printer, I then traced or digitized these images to produce *.dxf files for
vinyl cutting of new decals

Nice job Stan. You have way more patience than I do. I have the same issues with the stripes on my 25' TT but figured when/if the time came I'd take it to a guy that does van graphics, I think they call them wraps? Either way it will be a few years yet. Your application looks great.

I think it looks great!

that's the first time I have used a camera to get the picture to trace out , it went well

This was a different exercise for me, how to get an exact copy of an RV decal, I am used to getting plans or line diagrams so it was a challenge and worked out, would do it again
Scanning could have also worked but then its a lot of editing , I was lucky here there was hardly any editing

I get all kinds of strange things people want me to be able to laser. I have one guy that brings in plaques way to big for my scanner, this last time he brought in a t-shirt. I have gotten to the point that I just take a picture put in aspire and draw it.

I do use a scanner if the image is small , and aspire on the trace---but I have found the digitizing quicker and old diagrams with a grid are perfect as the scanner will pick all this up and has to be edited
The least amount of edits pleases me

Nice!

Very nice, woodman

Where did you get the vinyl, and what type of vinyl did you get?

By the way, sreilly, wait until you see the price to place stripes or a wrap on your travel trailer. It will be alarming.

Wraps ain't cheap. If it's just stripes, no prob. Lay out the stripes with painter's tape, paint the stripes, pull off the tape. Cheap, easy, and as accurate as you are. For a decal, I'd just put the design on card stock, cut it out, put it in place, paint. Easy peasy. AND you can honestly say you did it yourself.
