Typed Signature Font - Custom Waterslide Decal

Stock Details

Product Description

Personalise your guitar with your own name or the name of your company and a nickname. Simply choose the font you would like your signature to be printed in from the drop down list, Then type in the text you would like for the signature part. Next type in the text you would like for the Nickname part of the decal, be sure to include the quotation mark if they are required. We will print only what you type, then choose the colour you would like your whole decal to be printed in - we'll do the rest.  The ultra-thin decals look stunning on guitar headstocks and only need a couple of thin coats of lacquer (compatible with most spray lacquers including nitro).

Size: These signature style decals are printed to fit within 41 x 18mm to ensure that the decal is suitable for use on guitar headstocks. This is based on the size of a classic Eric Clapton signature on the end of a Stratocaster headstock - please check your available space before ordering as returns cannot be accepted on custom items.

What Makes Our Decals Special

  • Our decals are precision made restoration quality decals printed on 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 surface.
  • The paper is ultra-thin allowing for a superior edgeless finish, the unprinted areas remain totally transparent, and it is compatible with all spray 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 produced by us in our studio freshly to order well within one week.


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. Waterslide decals can be applied to any smooth, non-porous, non-oily surface making them ideal for many applications including guitars, toys, models, candles, bikes, helmets and so much more.


These are CUSTOM waterslide decals. Text and images will be printed exactly as specified by you in the downloadable template. Your requested design should not contain any registered 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.
