For anyone wanting a single or few custom dice. Any company out there will always be too expensive. Also, shipping and manufacturing, sometimes might bee excesive for your purposes.

Wichever the case is, now you will be able to print your own custom plastic dice.

You will need a Laser printer, INKJET photo paper (paper backed, not the plastic one) and a clothes iron. (and of course, blank dice)

You will be able to achieve, easily, results like these airplane dice I made.

You can also print resized images just fine, like the fallout pipboy, For very detailed images, vectorizing works vest, as the printer will do clear lines instead of rastered "thingies".

Of course, they are not indestructible as engraved dice are, but they are fairly resistant to natural hand rubbing. Even a nail brush will not affect them much :)
I hope that from now on, you will not depend on anyone to have those cool dice you deserve.
