Also, what is the resolution?  No technical specifications on the website page.

If decals are a bust you can always make "I <3 bacon" shirts.

I like the way you think!

I don't know about resolution. I'm afraid someone would have to buy one to find out.

Think of all the Conrail t shirts and other outerwear you could make and sell.

Here is a review I found....

http://www.hellocraft.com/2009/07/yudu-fail/

Sounds interesting but a lot of work. It oddly doesn't lend itself to one off runs or large production runs, and I doubt multiple colors would be a viable option as the registration system appears to be nothing more than lines that you eyeball.

I bet that stuff she said to use liberally ain't free .

Conrail logo made of bacon would now be do-able .... a 1 off for Ed .
A TheRailwire T-Shirt to wear at public and private events , just don't go too far and adopt a funky handshake .

Michael's has it for $300.00.

After reading the review, I'll keep my wallet in my pocket.

Nice idea though.

Yeah, it doesn't look like it'd work.

Oh well. Maybe someday we'll find something...

Microscale decals are screen printed, right?  I think resolution is based on whatever screen size you're using, so the basic set-up here should work if you source the proper consumables.

Saw that on an infomercial recently. (That should always be a red flag.) Wondered about it, didn't like the price. What I saw didn't look that impressive. Thanks for finding the review. Have you considered Conrail underwear?  :o .
