Camo pattern for printing??

Posted on Thu, 6 Oct 2005 at 4:43



I am looking for camouflage pattern to print on vinyl.. I have seen the new stuff that Avery has, but what I am looking for is just the plain military camouflage or the desert camoulflage. I would appreciate any help to find pattern. best would be to find it as a vectorized eps or similar so I could change colour on it for different needs. Any ideas??.

Your best bet for that would be to find an image such as google image or go to your local library even possibly a hobby shop that specializes in models (they should have images of such). You can use a program such as shortcut's photozoom pro to enlarge the image without resolution loss. You can print that, or skip the photozoom pro option and bring it into your flavor of design app such as Illustrator or Flexisign and vectorize it yourself. This way you can change the color as needed.

I just thought about something else, look for Tamiya with google. That should bring up there homepage or homepages of such. Tamiya is a model company that makes R/C cars, planes etc. They also specialize in models such as planes, miltary vehicles like tanks etc. They should have tons of images of done models for which you could vectorize off of. - Good luck.

Thanks,

Looked in google and found several pictures of camo patterns but problem is that pattern is way to small. Must have a larger portion of pattern to work with. To vectorize a camo pattern from a bad resolution photo is a tough job!

Thanks anyway...still hope for somebody to come up with a simple solution.
