    How do you put the little "labels" on your homecooked pedals?
    Im talking about volume, tone etc...
    It does not look so professional with stickers. And I do not want to write with a pencil. :scowl:

    Ok, whats that? I might know but english is not my first language. Is it the same pricipal as the decals on a Fender headstock? Can I print these transfers in my simple HP printer?
    Where can they be bought?
    Many questions. :D
    Thanks BTW!!!

    yeah, they are pretty much the same as the fender decals, same principal any way. you cant print them yourself (as far as i know).
    I don't know where you can get them though. I would try Guitar accessories websites or your local guitar shop.

    sorry im not much help.

    Try the message boards at commonsound.com. They make custom pedals and they use these transfers to label them. I don't know where you could get them, but I know they do.

    You may be able to buy very small peel and stick letters. Use a straight edge to put them on neatly. Check any office supply store.
