    I cant find a really good clean source of some decals for switches. I want something like this: http://www.inmagine.com/ingcsc/ingcscp23950-photo, but that web site lists the EPS file at $49 bucks...are you shitting me?

    Anyone know of a place I can find these at or am I better off making my own in photoshop or something?

    seems like the OTRATTW (over the river and through the woods or something like that) would be able to hook you up.

    They are good people.

    Photoshop your own if you want to go that route. Those guys look like image resellers, so regardless of simplicity, the usage rights are still costly. But being simple, roll your own I say. You may find some free fonts that have them for you.

    My question is will a sticker stick well? Especially with the contact required? Seems like on a hot day you'd just push the sticker off of a plastic button. You'd do better with a printing/screen process, but how to do that, beats me, but that's what the factory style buttons use. I have some toggles that have clear plastic covers that snap over them. They're not automotive though. The clear plastic rides over the actual button, so anything can go in behind it.

    yeah I think photoshopping is my best bet. I am planning on PCDT99 printing some of his vinyl stickers from this thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy-sell-trade-other/181010-fs-vinyls-decals.html

    If they come off in a hot day then oh well, I'll try something else. If I had a stencil of the decals I could easily spray some paint on em...that would be my best best, but I have no idea where I'd get that
