I need to make very small decals, any tips on the best printer type to accomplish this.

Looking to custom built a hot wheel 1/64 scale for my friend

The Best????
The OKI printer that costs about $5000 to start up is great.

Check out the links below, it shows some decals I made with my new set up, a modified Oki C711WT. It's the best I've used to date, it is an expensive printer though. There is no inexpensive way to make good quality decals with white graphics. And you definitely need a good printer if you are doing smaller scales. In the second thread below there is a 64th scale car I just did (also in pic below). Obviously the really small graphics suffer once you go down this small. If you don't want to spend the money on a printer but can do the artwork I can print them for you. If you'd like I can post a few more pictures of the 64th scale Gas Monkey car. I just finished it up last night.

The car wasn't quite finished here. The body is just laying on the chassis.
