I understand why Cubesmith stopped producing Studio Cube centre stickers. But I still want some of those. 'nuff said...

How much would it cost for me to get a set of 6x6 and 7x7 supercube stickers? Specifically I'm thinking of Pochmann style stickers with standard Western color scheme, although only the centers need stickers with more than one color (edges/corners are just one color).

do you have a picture so I know what your talking about? the short answer to your question is no or "yes but its expensive". I dont have a template for anything other than 3x3 right now. if you need 2x2 4x4 5x5 6x6 I can do it if you give me exact dimensions of the stickers. the 7x7 requires a lot of work peeling stickers off and scanning into the computer to make the template. if you want printing on all the faces that means I have to get it into this printing order thats coming up in about a week. right now I'm very busy with my fathers funeral. so I'm gonna have to say no unless you have the template and are willing to pay the setup fee the printer charges me.

I read every post and have a few questions regarding design and whatnot:

When you said, 'you could have 1000 unique logos all different' - does that mean I can submit 100 different logo designs to you, and have them all print at the 10 dollar price shipped? (or close to it) Is there no limit in regards to what colors we choose?

Do you have a recommended resolution and sizing for the 3x3 logos? If I create one in Photoshop, say at 200x200 pixels, it would downgrade in quality when resized & printed as the actual sticker size- wouldn't it? Or does the printing involve some process where the image quality will stay the same?

Sorry if I'm coming off with too many questions. I just want to be sure on the requirements/limits before working on a new logo design.

Thanks!

I did say they could be all different but I realize now that 1000 unique logo's is actually very unrealistic due to the amount of work involved in my handling of the images and also the printers need to work with a much larger image. everything has to be made into a master. like what I'm doing now the master sheet is like 1ft by 15in but its x4 or something and it has more like 10 unique logo's.

when I said 1000 unique logo's I was just thinking that because there are no plates to be made then its theoretically possible. that was

I'm wiser now. BTW try to keep logo related questions in the other thread here

This topic really belongs in the marketplace, therefore that's where it shall be.

sorry, it actually started as a question "do you think I should make some 3x3 stickers"

I would suggest you buy a sheet of vinyl and use duplicolor vinyl dye on the area you want to change color. its better to get yellow and red vinyl sheets and get blue and red vinyl spray. you can do all the primary color fades. spray red on yellow, blue on yellow, blue on red. the blue on red might come out purple to red. not much you can do about it. if you want a pantone cube or a rainbow fade cube it has to be printed on a machine.

would it be easy/reasonably cheap for you to produce 3x3 supercube stickers?

4x4 example: http://cubesmith.com/Super%204x4%20WRG.jpg

I'm currently planning on undergoing a centres only handmade cut and paste job, which I know will not turn out well (even with a template)
