Hello all. I have recently been commissioned to build a dining table for a local fire department. In the center of the table they want a decal or some sort of image of their department logo. The want it to be 36” in diameter and they want it sealead under the poly. So I have 2 questions. First, does anyone have any recommendations on a good custom decal or stencil website? It has to work on wood obviously. Second, if I go with a decal, do you think that if I poly over it that the poly will not crack where the edges of the decal meet the wood? I have know idea how thick the decal would be. I thought of maybe inlaying it if I have too. Any thought would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A larger sign shop that has a vinyl printer/cutter should be able to assist you. We use to make replica state seals for our Governor. We tried poly but it crept under the vinyl edges which became loose. We then went with a two part epoxy similar to the following:
