Default Custom graphic company

Can anyone recommend a good graphic guy or company in the Metro Detroit area? I'm looking at getting some factory style graphics done on my sport bike. I really want a quality, like factory look. I found one company on craigslist and judging from the pictures and the companies they did graphics for, they seem pretty good. However, that's craigslist, and who knows if that's really his work or not.

Thanks

I think there are a couple guys on here that do graphics that are close to you. My mother does them and I've picked up some of it, but I'm a little further away.

Instead of yellow, my bike will be white. Everything else would be a graphic. Except for the tail, I'm currently in the middle of a tail swap so I'm not sure how I'm going to finish that.

i doubt you will find a reputable company that will print off logos like that. its a copyright thing. but sign-a-rama is a franchise thing and the one over here does all my trucks and trailers and such. they do a awesome job and the prices are very reasonable

I have a sign-a-rama a couple blocks over from me, i didn't even think of them actually.

Copyright on an 11 year old bike? Really?

I'll double check to make sure I get a factory look, but with all the aftermarket products out there I can't imagine it make a difference anymore.

Thanks though

Designs N Signs in Frasier is pretty solid; I'm getting some vinyl done on a project and they have been great to deal with.

I've bought factory graphics packages in the past, are they no longer available, or just too pricey?

If no longer available, there may not be any copyright issues.

In on this as well... Currently building a '91 Scott Russell replica and apparently the scripted Kawasaki on the side was a one off for the race bikes and the decal isn't available anywhere...

The problem with a factory package like on the bike I posted, is that the decals have yellow in them. It's not just the stripes and wording like I want.
