    Where would I find the decals of auto type stuff like the dodge ram head decal or the kid pissing on other makes or nascar numbers and stuff. Is there a program that has all of this on there, or is it all freehand?
    Thanks

    Um, Mr. Shiplet, what you are asking for is illegal. There are CDs out there with content like this, but it is all copyrighted and it is all illegal to use and you can and WILL get in trouble for it.

    So how did the pickup I was following earlier have one in his back window? Someone didnt come up with it? You can only get that stuff from one person? You cant make it yourself? I will buy the program, im not worried about that. That sucks a whole lot if I cant do that stuff, my friends and I are pretty opinionated and these help get the point across. Bummer

    Let me get this straight... You come onto a professional signmaker group and ask where to get copywrited material. When you are told that it is illegal you try to justify you request by saying that someone is doing it and that it sucks that you can't do it too....

    This has to be some kind of April Fools joke.

    He's saying that the images are copyrighted. You need to be licensed to sell dodge decals and bill waterson has NEVER given a copyright for any sort of calvin merchandise.

    LOL. I think this might be an April Fools joke. But just in case it isn't....

    Just because it's done, does NOT make it legal. Just marijuana, it's not legal but it's still out there. Sorry if it sucks, but it's illegal and if you start using all of those images you could get your butt sued from 20 different directions from the 20 different companies you used copyrighted images from.

    And please, for heavens sake, don't tell me that stuff actually interests you for your personal vehicles???

    Not the dodge ram stuff but I love the Calvin stuff, ive seen some pretty good ones, cracks me up. And I didnt mean if its illegal thats fine I will do it anyway, not like that at all, ive seen people at my old college get busted for pirated music, I will stay with legit stuff.

    O----------K.


    Doesn't matter. Illegal. Look up some threads here or google copyright infringement. These flea market sellers have actually gone to jail and lost all of their equipment over this kind of stuff.

    Are you a sign shop or just a guy who wants to make his own stickers?

    I avoid the 'trendy' stuff like the plague. My only semi-illegals that I have done is doctored corporate logos. Just stupid funny stuff that I have given to friends. One friend had kept his look alike burger king logo to 'porno king' on his car for years.
