I have a customer that needs decals printed with consecutive numbering. i.e. 180000-200000. I have large format single staion equipment. Is there a way to acheive this?
What is the size of the decal? What material?
The only way I know of is to use an offset press from a commercial printer. I don't know of any screenprinting equipment that could handle such a thing.
Offset press and then laminate the decals.
You can print the clear decal sheets ganged up, all colours except the backing white, and leave an opening for the numbers, and then find a letterpress operation with a backwards numbering head. Depending on the amount of heads they have and the press capability (which you need to find out first before you lay out your art.) You run the decals in sequence on the sheets, still ganged up. When they numbering is done, then carefully run a white backer coat over them to protect the numbers, they are viewable through the clear side. Keep them in sequence, don't screw up.
Now you can cut them, the individual stacks will have the numbers in sequence.
