FAR Center for Contemporary Arts

Make your own custom decals! Bring an idea and learn the process of creating crisp, colorful vinyl decals for any application.

About this event:

From digital design and vinyl plotting to weeding, taping, and the final installation, we’ll learn how to make decals like the pros on a 28” Titan II vinyl plotter. Decals are one color cut outs. Text, simple icons and logos will translate best. Participants will be able to choose from a rainbow of colors and take home a handful of their own decals. Number of decals will depend on size, amount of detail, and time spent to create the image. If you have your own image as a .jpg or .ai file, bring it on a USB drive or email it prior.

All materials will be provided. Masks are required and registration is capped at 8.
