Hey I have been playing around with adding pictures as a way to add an extra level of fun to the solve.

So far I have just tried stickers and painting but I really want the plastic to be coloured.

As that is out of my reach I was thinking maybe I can get them pad printed on can anyone help out with some advice?

This is my latest attempt.

That looks really sharp. I would keep up the hand made stuff if I were you.... but there is a place that may be what can help you:

http://speedcubing.hu/webshop/ Olivers Sticker Shop... the forums very own Oliver Nagy.

Oliver printed a bunch of squirrel stickers for my puzzles and I was more than happy with them, check his shop out and see if that is what you are looking for.

Thanks.
I do enjoy painting them myself, but I'll give the stickers a try.

My other thought was have some tiles printed from a colour 3D printer. But I am unfamiliar with how well they can be glued on, any thoughts?
