    Who is "THE BEST" reproduction decal company in the USA?

    I'm restoring the side cases on my '95 GPZ1100. The will be repainted to exact oem colors, but they also have mini GPZ decals on them that I can't even find a part number for.
    I want to reproduce them EXACTLY to at least factory standards, or better. They are kinda complicated with the GPZ changing colors in the middle of the letters, and also have some reflective metallic in them. They look like miniature replicas of the big GPZ decals on the lower fairings.
    I will order at least four, maybe more. I have no problem shipping the decal company my luggage, so they can get an exact match.

    Again, I know these are multi-colored and reflective, and that a lot of places don't have the ability to reproduce them.

    So, who's the best?

    p.s. Does anyone know the part number for these "red" 1995 decals? Does anybody have one or two they'd part with?

    As always, thanks in advance for any and all info.

    Why are you limiting yourself to companies in the USA? There are many excellent restoration outfits in Europe. You may actually have better luck looking across the pond. That's where Giannis lives.

    Mostly because of shipping costs. I want to ship one of the pieces of luggage so they can see the original in person and do whatever they need to copy the original size and match up the colors exactly.

    When I restored my H1, I used these guys out of Canada.

    Hey GreenMamba, I appreciate it, but the decals go on the luggage. These were Kawasaki accessories, and they don't even show up on the fiche. That's why I can't find a part number for them . Thanks anyway.

    They are a "Genuine" Kawasaki Accessory... That being said, we all know that most bike manufacturers sub-out much of their clothing lines, chemicals and accessories. So, in short.... maybe

    I will try to post a pic of them in the next couple of days.

    Have you tried the local decal and vinyl wrap shops, with modern CAD and vinyl color printers there's a lot of different possibilities, IAC they may point you in the right direction !!
