Hm. While stickers are certainly cheaper, the results are...

But I'm not here to lecture you on the pros and cons. What sort of tips do you mean? I used stickers for a while too, you know... Razz

Do I need to do anything special or can I just print away?

Ah. You probably need sticker paper, if that's what you mean. If you've got that, I think you can print away, yep. Wink

Though I'd recommend 'high quality' on Print Settings. Apart from that, I can't think of anything else.

I actually find that waterslides are easier to apply then stickers.

I may need help re-sizing my stickers (when I've made enough).

You think? Laughing

But I do agree with you. Still, M's asked concerning stickers, so we'll advise him on that. Wink

I don't know how we can help, really...

Yes make sure you print them on high quality. You don't need an entire sheet full of stickers to print, your printer will print as long as the piece if paper you put in is just as wide as an A4. (although it may not be too short though Razz) Do you also want tips on how to apply them? Should I make a tutorial, perhaps?

Re-sizing is easy, open it up in MS Word. Then press "Format Picture">"Size" then play around with the size.

Yeah, stickers are a easier to apply than decals but sometimes the stickers can wear out after a while and peel off. But they are very good!

Why should DP tell anyone how to print stickers? It would take away his buisness. Honestly, it's pretty easy anyways. Use your head and you will find the answer.

Its basic math guys. Actually, not even. The sizes for the torso and legs and belt are all listed in the topic "Decals/Decal Paper for Novices" at the top of this section.
