Awesome idea. Does the actual pen have the same ghosty quality of the image that the picture shows (which I actually like)? How pronounced is the edge of the decal once finished (or does it show at all)? Great looking pen.

Steve,

After putting a CA finish over the decal you can't feel the decal at all. I'd be glad to send you a few decals of the deer head for you to try yourself. It's pretty simple. The hardest part is sizing and getting the printer to accept the decal paper.

Beautiful pen. I am getting ready to make my first cartiridge/antler for my brother. Where did you get the deer artwork?
Did you use the Testor's Bonding spray also or just CA?
