Print Custom Color Window Appliques

    To make the applique below I used a picture I had drawn and ink jet window decal paper. The design could have been done in color using this technique but remember that inkjet printers donít print white and also that the image has to be reversed to show up correctly when installing the image on the inside of a window.

    Print out the reversed image onto the decal paper (which is really plastic), using scissors or an X-Acto knife cut it out around the edges of the image and apply it to a cleaned back side of the window. Window decal paper runs about $15.00 for 5 sheets so print out the image onto plain paper first and check it for size under the window before printing out the final decal.

I knew I wanted some type of design on my test PSU, but I wanted color, a dull gray etch or applique simply would not do.  Time for some Photoshop action, I got my images lined up and then printed them out in grayscale to make sure they would fit the PSU.  Then I reversed the images and print them out on some ink jet window decal paper.

  I carefully cut out my images with a pair of scissors (an X-Acto knife works too) cutting as close to the edges of the image as possible.  Then it is just a matter of cleaning the acrylic and applying the appliques to the inside of the cover.  Make sure there are no dust particles on the acrylic as they will assuredly cause air bubbles beneath the applique, if you do have bubbles do not pop them because it will look ass, instead try removing and repositioning the applique after cleaning the surface... if all else fails re-print and try again.

Happy Modding
