replacement decals

OK seen this on another forum, and thought I would share since I know many guys here do re do's on older honda's

but this place sells replacement factory like decal kits for most all Honda ATv's and ATC's
and at pretty cheap prices to boot, cannot say HOW great the decal quality is or not, but they look OK to me??, WAY cheaper than buying from Honda I know that! LOL

Alright for a beater, they are pretty far off from OEM Repro's, they aren't the best quality either IMO. I've bought them before. Price was right.

yeahs that's what I figured, there OK< but NOT the best materials on them or copy's

as I know GOOD decals ain't cheap, But hey for a so so re do, or just to clean things up, cannot go wrong for the price, can buy a few sets for what OEM's cost and replace as they maybe fade or peel
and still NOT spend as much LOL

With the foreman and fourtrax decals it appears they have the wrong font and to get around this they've used 'bold' text with a similar font. It's close but not close enough.
There are ways around this it takes a long time sat at the computer, they got the price right though so I guess it's good enough.
Used to work in media printing and decals/stickers with my Dad, got quite a keen eye when it comes to this type of thing.

the reason the font is different is because they could face a law suit by violating Honda's logo/decal patent would be my guess ?. this is why you see decals close ?, but not like oem. they can't make them match 100% for legal reasons.

I could if I gave them away ;-)
I see what you mean though, there will be a copyright and let's face it, it's not worth taking Honda on in court is it, there's no chance of winning lol.

I wouldn't be so sure of that, I mean there is all kinds of companies out there machine reproduction decals for things that are a bang on match to OEM. Not necessarily Honda, but tractors would be one example. I know of a few guys that were making exact match decals for 300 Honda's and selling them.

Here is some Rancher decals..

they are not 100% the same, set them up side by side, and compare, they don't match to me, at least not what I see anyway ?.
