Hi,

I have made some barriers on my new track and looking at options for adding advertising to them. I've seen some for sale on ebay but the sizes don't quite fit what I need. I've been trying to find a basic online print shop for printing a design onto an a4 page on sticker paper (which I could cut out), but everywhere seems to just want to offer more rigid formats and certain shapes.

Does have anyone have any suggestions for online printers? Or even a more suitable solution/suggestion than just getting them printed on one big sheet if the option exists somewhere I haven't found.

Have you got any images of the barriers you have made or the measurements (probably only need the height really). I did mine from foamboard at 40mm tall and the ones I bought off ebay were great.

They are 25mm high. Its just white pvc from b&q (cant seem to post any pics from mobile). I have quite a lot and was hoping to print off some specific/custom ad stickers as opposed to being limited by eBay (though that will do if its all that possible).

You may be limited in what you can do using a phone. Lots of logos are available online. In most cases when you are using a computer you can right click on an image and save it. I have a program that easily allows me to capture anything that is on a computer screen. I have a lot of logos served and I drop those into Microsoft PowerPoint and print them out on sticky backed paper. PowerPoint allows me to easily reposition and resize the individual logos, the same thing could be done with an image editing program like Photoshop. You can get things printed by a regular print shop, they like pictures to be in the .tiff format.

Photo sharing sites like Photobucket can make prints of your pictures.

If you have your banners commercially printed be sure they are fade-resistant. Save as 300dpi minimum. TIF is a lossless format, whereas JPEG loses a little but not enough to be noticable on small images. I've had a lot printed but haven't yet found a good online source doing them on s/a 'archive' paper.

I have a large batch of sponsor logos in word format. My barriers are 0.75 high
Im happy to email them to you if you send or post your email address. You can resize them easily. I bought glossy adhesive backed paper but at 250gsm it was too much for my printer. I resorted to normal HP photo paper, trim with a scalpel and fix to plasticard

If you message the KtechSigns seller on ebay he can remake to what ever size you need. And they are really good quality vinyl decals

I can confirm that. (Scott) has made me several bespoke pages of 80's decals; really good detail and whatever size you want. Good value too.

You can use any cheap graphics program - or even free ones like LibreOffice to size and print advertising stickers on a page with a color inkjet. I just do a Google image search for logos/signs I like, save the image file and re-size as needed in a horizontal format that will fit on the barriers.

In my previous track, I had used 1/4" bendable craft foam for barriers in many areas; I just printed the signs onto a full-page peel-n-stick label stock and cut to fit and apply the signage to the barriers. One important note: If you are applying signage to curved barriers, it's probably best to wait until the barriers are in place. When I applied them to a flat surface and then bent the barrier to apply around the curve, the signs inevitably wrinkled over time
