Applying dry-transfer LOGOS to TRIC canvas cover case, an recreation of: Stickers,decals and appliqués Posted by Robert on November 30, 2015 at 1:02pm in "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
Some background. Because the TRIC canvas-like material is coated to make in water proof and abrasion resistant, getting any sort of logo to adhere to it is near impossible. On the old site we discussed various types of sticker application and vagarious methods.
After dismissing the idea of using rubberized spray paint with stencils (a Seagull stencil would be very difficult to cut), I thought of using the rubber paint to prepare the surface for the dry transfer logos.
Spent some time trying to figure WHERE to put logo.. The poor placement of the embroidered TRIC logo took away the best locations. Once i decided where, i masked it off, following the line of the case stitching.
I sanded the area, to take the gloss off the threads. I then sprayed the sanded area with a rubberizing paint that was designed for hubcaps! Flexi-Dip from Rust-oleum.
The smell was a bit toxic, so i moved case outside for a day to dry and vent.
You'll have to dbl-click this pic to see the black parallelogram of the rubber paint.

I was happy with results, but the process take more time than I expected. After i discovered that TRIC cases are all same size on outside, I decided to use hardcases for the rest of my guitars.
I do love LOGOing my cases, but I now have 12 cases logoed, and we cant see them in the DIY CASE Storage.
