LET'S MOD: DIY Guitar Pick Guard Decal (without decal paper)

A review of making your own iron on transfer for your guitar's pick guard without special decal sheets

DIFFICULTY: 3/10
SUCCESS RATING: 9/10
COST: 30c
TIME: 1 hour (including waiting in line at the printing store)

- Printing a design to be transferred onto the pick guard of your guitar without purchasing special decal sheets
- Printed on tracing paper using a LAZER printer
- Iron set to low

The design ended transferring relatively easy though not completely. About 95% of the ink was successfully transferred onto the pick guard.

NOTE: After filming this I found that the pick guard had shrunk very slightly from the excess heat from the iron and I had a bit of difficulty reattaching it to the guitar body.
Just be careful with how much heat you apply.
