Find a local business that makes custom vinyl cut stickers. With custom vinyl cut stickers, decals, and graphics (also called computer cut decals, pro-cut vinyl, vinyl graphics, die-cut vinyl, etc.) the vinyl is cut to shape, eliminating the need for printed inks or background material.

The vinyl they used on mine was pretty thin so it doesn't affect the resonance too much. Since these heads are usually for live applications, that shouldn't matter as much. I went with a company called Al Marks Signs in Monroe, Michigan. Maybe pics to follow.

Here's an example of the type of sticker. I found this pic at this website:

Also, Remo makes some "Graphic Heads" that can be found here.

Let us know how it turns out.

Definitely check out Inked by Evans. They're printed directly to the head (no stickers, vinyl, adhesives, etc.) The graphics last and the heads don't suffer sonically due to the artwork. We have licensing agreements with drum manufacturers for the use of their logos and have licensed artwork that can be used as well. Let me know if you have any questions about it.
