I just acquired this display unit from a store going out of business. It's almost 7 feet tall and lights up from the inside. I thought I could convert it to a Star Wars or sci fi case and display some 1/6 figures in it, thought it had a somewhat Blockade Runner look to the inside (white, backlit panels, etc).

To really finish it I want to get a couple of large decals for the top portion and the bottom (where you see the Von Zipper logos- I already removed the existing decal from the bottom center door panel). The yellow "VZ" sign on the top can be unscrewed but I can also cover that and put something there.

Anyone know where I could get something like that made? I planed to photoshop some Star Wars art together- but I just don't know who prints that type of thing. Any advice appreciated.

Look online for local sign shops. Depending on the size, it may be cheaper to buy a Silhouette Cameo and just do the decals yourself if they are simple.

Depending on the size.. you may be able to use a hobby vinyl cutter (Silhouette Cameo mentioned)... <-- thats the one I have as well.

But it only goes roughly 12" across.. (but can print up to 10' on a roll of vinyl I believe)..

Are you looking for a 'solid' sheet.. or an actual cut out vinyl piece?

What is your budget? If money is no object, you can get a sign shop to print out large adhesive decals. Yes, they can do it easily, but it will not be cheap. I asked one to print out a 12 x12 inch company logo on clear media and it cost me over a hundred bucks. Shop around, but most places usually have a minimum charge. The printers that can print these quality graphics are ultra expensive, and so the sign shops charge a lot so they can recoup the cost, and pay the overhead.
