These 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper sheets can be used in any ordinary ink-jet or Laser printer to print your own CUSTOM DECALS for models, matchbox or RC cars. This is for a single sheet but quantity discounts apply starting at just 2 items (see discounts page). Available in white (laser printers only) or clear material. White is recommended for application on dark colored surfaces so it stands out better and the colors will be brighter. Or in applications where white is needed within the design (your printer doesn't have white ink) Clear should be used on light colored surfaces as your printer ink is semitransparent so the background colors will show through lighter colors of ink.
Image shows FastDecals logo but your sheet will be blank so you can print your own.
INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED (see below):
* Use a graphic design or word processor program (Photoshop, MS Paint, MS Word, etc.) to layout as many designs as you can to fit on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet.
* Do a test print with ordinary paper first to make sure everything looks good.
* Your printers setting should be BEST QUALITY with PHOTO GLOSS paper.
* Stick in the decal paper for printing on the GLOSSY SIDE and hit print.
* Allow to dry for about an hour then spray with a acrylic clear coat paint. This is NOT included but can be purchased at any hardware such as Lowes, Wal-Mart, etc. Apply 2-3 THIN coats until the print is covered evenly and appears shinny.
* After the clear coat is dry (see can for dry times), cut out your designs from the sheet using ordinary SHARP scissors.
* Put a decal in a cup of clean water for approximately 45-60 seconds until the decal starts separating from the backing.
* Remove the backing (and discard) and apply your decal by positioning the decal in place and running your finger across to force any water out that may be left behind the decal.
* Repeat for each decal then sit back and enjoy your completely custom decals you made!

Our decals are made from commercial quality vinyl that will last several years in harsh outdoor conditions. See color chart and/or material chart (if a full color print) for outdoor life expectancy for your particular design.
They come with adhesive on the back of the decal. Note that we do also offer front adhesive decals.
All decals are CUSTOM MADE to your specifications of size and color/material.
Each design can be made in any size and are measured LEFT TO RIGHT. (*Except Stick Figure Decals). You choose the size in STEP 1 when ordering.
Our decals can be made in any color found on the color chart if you are chosing a color in Step 2. If this is a "full color" printed style decal (you are choosing a material, not color, in Step 2) then we may be able to still change the color but it would be a color from one of these color charts.
The white rectangle the design is shown on is not part of the decal. Most decals will not have a background; the majority of our decals are die-cut around the shape of the design unless otherwise noted or show. *Some FULLCOLOR decals will have white within the design. See the product information and the diagrams below for more information.
You may also choose to have a Shadow, Outline or Contour in an additional color for single color transfer decals.
Discounts are automatically added if you purchase more than one item. Items don't have to be the same to qualify for the discount.
