We will print the words exactly as you type them. Waterslide decals cannot be applied to oiled surfaces. Full application and finishing instructions are included with each order which we strongly advise you follow closely irrespective of previous decal experience. Our high quality guitar headstock decals are printed on to fresh, exceptionally thin waterslip paper which gives an incredible finish but some people find more delicate that other waterslide decals they have used in the past. We include an off-cut of material for you to practice with before applying the actual decal so that you can get an idea of how the material behaves. Please note that as these are custom made-to-order items they are exempt from UK Distance Selling Regulations; these decals cannot be returned unless they are proven to be defective or if the design is not as requested. In this situation a replacement will be offered.


Our decals are precision made restoration quality decals printed onto the finest quality fresh waterslide paper. We use completely opaque and permanent inks, including truly metallic gold and silver, so unlike decals printed on inkjet or laser printers the colour of our decals is not affected by the colour of the surface underneath - our decals can be used on ANY colour headstock. The paper is ultra thin (allowing for a superior edgeless finish - like the originals), the unprinted areas remain totally transparent, and it is compatible with all spray lacquer types including nitrocellulose. Like all waterslide decals ours can only be applied to sealed, non-porous, non-oily surfaces (for example lacquered wood). They are designed and produced by us in our studio, printed freshly to order.

  • The coatings we use are a liquid form of the decal paper itself. One coat over the top sandwiches the ink. This helps prevent scratches and aids application.

These are CUSTOM decals. Text will be printed in the fonts shown. Your requested design should not contain any trademarks or copyrighted designs unless you are the rights owner or have their express consent to use such marks. By ordering you agree to these terms.

Basic Application Instructions

  1. Sand your lacquered headstock to 600 grit.
  2. Cut the decal to a 'smooth pebble' shape - a precise outline is unnecessary.
  3. Soak for a couple of seconds in water, then apply to headstock.
  4. Smooth out and dry with tissue paper, then leave overnight to fully adhere.
  5. Spray over with some clear lacquer.
  6. Polish the headstock for a professional finish. Our Complete Polishing Kit is ideal for this and contains everything you need for hand polishing lacquers to a high gloss.
