Check out The Game Crafter for indented dice. You can put your images on stickers or labels and apply them to the dice. https://www.thegamecrafter.com/parts/d6-indented-blank-orang...

has and recommends it. Depending on how many dice you need, it should be cheaper than indented dice.

Print on waterslide decal paper. Spray it with a clear sealer. Cut to size and apply to non-indented dice.

Printplaygames.com is the cheapest you'll find. They also sell stickers that fit all their dice and you can upload the images to be printed on the sticker.

EBay sells them pretty cheap.
You could also buy wooden cubes which are a bit more expensive.

I would suggest writing on them with a permanent marker.

If you do need pictures soak them in ways down pva and they will stick well.

Get a sharpie and a dry erase marker also. You can write on the dice faces with the sharpie then remove it with the dry erase marker when you want to change up. The dice are very nice quality but the bag is trash.

Somewhere on bgg a user posted a how to on printing a reverse image on inkjet photo paper in a laser printer then using a clothes iron to set the image onto the dice. Never tried it but the results looked great.

I recently used www.customdice.com and they did a great job for a reasonable price. Very customizable and multiple color choices as well as the choice of square/rounded sides. The guy who I spoke with was very helpful and they get the job done in a reasonable timeframe as well.

Also check with chessex. I almost went with them but they also have a lot of choices and customizable dice.
