Custom decals/wraps - templates? Recommendations?

So I've been thinking that instead of having my ride's scratches out there for all the world to see, maybe I could give her some decals for now. I don't want to just go with what everyone else has -- actually I'm a pretty decent graphic designer and I'd like to put something together myself. Thinking of a one-colour, city silhouette type of thing, in carbon fiber maybe since the decals I've seen in that look so nice. Or... maybe even glow in the dark vinyl, haha.

My question is, are there any templates available for the Ninja 300s (2015 model) that I can use to decide the placement? Also, where do people recommend I go? If there's anyone here who does large decals/wraps I'd be happy to give them my custom.

I vote for carbon fiber wrap, or better yet Carbotanium

If you go with a professional shop/business and talk to them about your desire to design it yourself, they'll probably provide you any templates they have. You just have to ask, in my experience.

Drippin' Wet has been recommended to me a number of times, but I have no personal experience with them. Also, every time I see their url I'm convinced someone is messing with me and it's actually a porn site.

Can confirm, many of my friends use the graphic and # plate services from dripping wet.

Here is an alternative for very large graphics like the one I put on my trailer.

Still thinking about this... I read @choneofakind mention reflective vinyl decals on another thread, for extra visibility at night. Like the reflective tire rims.

I think it's a cool idea, but I haven't seen any place actually do reflective vinyl for custom decals...

Carbon fiber looks real good. I'd put some zombie hunting permits on there too. You don't want to be caught out there without a permit when it happens...

I don't know if that's a dinner invite or the beginning of a beautiful riding relationship but either way it sounds like the best way to spend time in the IE...
Ill keep you posted
