Fallout Hobbies Kickstarter Coming This Week

I've been busy as Hell lately for numerous reasons... not the least of which is the new company I'm starting.

Reasons why I've been busy as Hell:

1. I’ve been hard at work as one of the concept artists for Star Trek Axanar. Specifically designing all their marketing collateral and Klingon interfaces for a bridge set. I can’t show anything yet cause of contract…but it’s killer stuff.

2. My wife is really, really pregnant. So there’s been a lot going on with that.

3. I moved again to a larger house with an extra bedroom for that new baby.

4. I’ve been motivated for Star Trek Models lately, check out my other blog:  Probably because I’ve been in Star Trek world with Axanar.

5. I’ve been wall-to-wall packed out with freelance clients.

6. I’m starting a new online hobby business. Fallout Hobbies.

And that’s what I want to talk about now for a few minutes. 

The overall gist of the new store is this:

For the longest time getting custom waterslide decals for your own personal hobby projects was a tedious, confusing chore. Designing the artwork, making sure the colors were accurate, pricing decal printing by colors, minimum orders of sheets, etc. etc. But you no longer need to worry about that hassle.

Custom Decals are as simple as 1,2,3! 

• No minimum orders
• Flat rate fees
• Print in White Toner!
• Customer control over the final product
• High-resolution printing quality

Getting custom one-off decal designs manufactured in white toner is quickly becoming impossible since the cessation of ALPS printer ink and tech support in May of 2015. Now there are only 2 types of laser printers in the world that can print one-off single sheets of decals in white toner and Fallout Hobbies intends to acquire one of those models.

The process will be easy.

Step 1.
Send Fallout Hobbies a hand drawn sketch, image from the internet or your vector/ raster artwork of the decals you want created. We accept all file formats and can work with pretty much anything. 

Step 2.
Fallout Hobbies will redraw the supplied artwork in vector format for ultra crisp printing. The customer will get an opportunity to proof the decal design before moving onto step 3.

Step 3.
Fallout hobbies will gang up multiples of your artwork in various sizes shapes on sheet or to specific sizes as indicated by the customer. Then we’ll print that sheet out for a flat rate of $35 and then an additional $15 for each additional sheet ordered. 

Sheets are 5.5” x 8.5” with transparent backing. Larger size sheets can be special ordered. Sheets can be printed in white or black toner as well as full color. 

A full tabletop army can most likely be completed with just one sheet, but it never hurts to order extra sheets for the future.

We will have pre-designed decal sheets as well as the custom offerings.

The Kickstarter campaign and website will be going live by the end of this week. 

There will be awesome Perks for backers as well as DEEP discounts on the regular pricing.

 I can’t wait to get this thing in motion!


  1. There will be extra discounts for backers that are attending NOVA open and there will be extra discounts for all backers come September on the online store. More details coming soon.
