Even simpler, and cheaper. Buy a pack of printer transfer paper and create your own. (Amazon sell it). These days you can freely download almost any font to get a really authentic look. With an ink jet printer, you then spray the transfer with a couple of coats of acrylic clear spray and use as any other transfer.

Not sure if that is what Steven is after Andy. Sounds like dry rubs to me, similar to letraset.

I have used Nigel at Flightline Graphics, not cheap but quality rarely is.

But as you say decal paper is readily available to make waterslide decals

Cheers

Danny

Gosh! Haven't used Letraset in nearly 50 years when we used to use it for artwork for front panels and circuit boards.

Yes - we were using it over 50 years ago to illustrate parts manuals.

I was using it at work much more recently for front panels on prototypes (just realised that I retired early back in 1995 so not that much more recently!). I still have some I 'acquired' at the time. I used it to put our names on the top tube of our tandem and it stayed on through rain, hail and sun for years so it's very durable.

More recently (a few weeks ago) I made my own decal for my Fugly by printing on decal paper at home:

 @Andy48, Just had a quick look for transfer paper, most of it seems to be iron on ( for T shirts etc.) is that what you're talking about ?

No. Search on Amazon for "water decal transfer paper". It produces water slide transfers using an inkjet or laser printer just like the sort you can buy in shops. You will also need some clear acrylic spray from a car accessory shop, or from Amazon. Takes a bit of trial and error, but once you get the hang of it, its brilliant.
