A bunch of questions about decal paper...

Post by pdragon27 on Thu Feb 19, 2009 9:27 pm

First, where is the best place to get decal paper?

Second, about how long does it take to ship?

An thirdly, how many decals does it take to fill a sheet?

Just google decal paper. I'm sure this has been asked countless other times. Also, if you figure the size of the paper vs. the size of the templates you'll be printing, minus the clear borders always around the outside of a paper which you might be able to get rid of, you'll have the right answer.

Yea just google decal paper.


You might be able to fit about 20 decals on one sheet of paper depending on if you are printing arms legs ect.

I have managed to fit 30 on one sheet including the arms and legs but I recommend making two of each just in case. (Arms = hard) Also you can buy decal paper on ebay for around 2 to 3 dollars a sheet. Then just a warning, while it's being shipped buy these materials:
Brasso
Clear coat (acrylic)
Clear coat (varnish)
and sharp scissors or an excato knife.

Then the final step is to make sure your printer can handle glossy photo paper it can get jammed. Almost happened to me.... Shocked

Yeah I've had my printer jam on decal paper and I had to throw a couple of sheets away...

Clear coat varnish? - What do you need to use this for?

Personally, I use this website. It has good quality paper, (Wbob, OD, and I use it).

It takes about 2 weeks to arrive.

To seal the decals on, if you don't, they'll peal off.

Varnishes are usually made up of paint thinners and turpentine - unless you pick a special one, I wouldn't think this would be a good thing to put on your lego.

Or better yet, go and visit your local hobby store. They should be able to give you all the help you need in regards to the varnish/sealant.
