I'm wonderin,

how difficult is to make my own sticker?

I prefer the background to be clear.

I want to draw the image using my computer
and then print it out by putting the sticker
sheet in the printer.

Would this work?

The stickers are for mini pieces so they will
be quite small. Smaller than an inch.

They have clear stickers sheets you can buy at just about any Office supply store. I use these to make custom die faces. Works great!

So your saying it prints out fine?

Darkehorse do you have any sample images
of your custom die faces that I can see?

I've done something similar and it works fine. I used it for Micropul pieces. However with use the printing comes off. I'm sure there's some sealant one could apply to keep that from happening.

Another route to go is to print your artwork on paper, and run the paper through one of many Xyron (or similar) machines. I have the Xyron 900, which was recommended to me by people on BGDF. They make smaller ones though as well.

That works real well. The Xyron makes it into a sticker, then you stick it wherever you want (... I'll tell you where you can stick it...)

Here are the promised images:

Sorry for the blur. My digital camera doesn't like to take close ups of small objects. The dice look good, especially if you cut out the stickers the same approximate sized/shape as the die face (or whatever component face you're going to use).

Still have not found a good one for a low price.My I reccomend the Minolta G-500 (5 megapixels, in the 200-300 range, you should add to that a 256MB SD card, as it comes with a 16MB one, too small). Compact, great macro and zoom, great pics in general, works fine with automatic adjustments but also includes a great range of manual controls.

Here's a close picture of dice and a coin I just took:

You can buy it here.

Older cameras are fine for web work. Try eBay. My old Canon PowerShot S10 sold for C$90 or so (down from C$999!), and it did fine macro shots. Two megapixels, but that's plenty for online shots and small prints.

As for $400 being pricey, wait till you start looking at SLRs. :)

Nice pic!I gough it for $385 more than a year ago, including a 256MB SD card. At the link I included it appears at $214 at TriState, but I agree there are many great cameras for a lot less. The G-500 is worth every cent of its cost, though. :-)

My daughter is planning to buy a Mustek next month, when we visit the USA, for about $100-150. I'll let you know if it is a good alternative. The info and the samle pics on the web seem good.
