This decal set was printed on a standard HP printer. I have just bought some of the decal paper and will try it out.

I have printed my own decals but have had trouble with the ink running when they get wet when being applied (even after a couple of coats of Klear) - what do you use to seal yours Chuck?

Not bothered since so some tips will be most welcome

The inks are water based so don't use water based clear coats to seal them, even Klear will cause them to run unless you spray it on almost dry.

I use Humbrol Gloss Clear Cote which is enamel and can be brushed on using a wide brush and will level out nicely.

Cool!
When printing on a laser printer only one problem, actually two.
1) no white color
2) raster (not always visible)
Other everything is fine. I printed on HP laserjet Color 200.
