It's generally in Supermarkets, probably less than $5. It's about 3 over here in the UK.

Depends what decal you're resizing.

But what you do is you copy the decal, then paste it into a document. Then right-click and press "format picture".

You mean the ones by Vidgamer?

The width is .9 inches, the length will reset itself to be proportionate with it.

Shadow, on the whole, stickers are much easier, but are of a lower quality and result, than decals. However, they are more durable.

I am currently plannin to print a pic of said elements along with my decals on sticker paper and cut holes in them. Is that the best thing to do?

P.S. Sorry for the double post.

Would you be willing to use printable fabric? You can get it at Joan fabric for around 6 dollars... Its just my printer is old so I just paint the cloth.

...then they aren't decals. That's called paper. Laughing Stickers should be sticky-backed paper, so no need for glue, and waterslide decals conform to the surface of the 'fig.

That's basicly what I do to. But a bit more advanced with detailing, like
the use of contact-paper, nailpolish remover, soap, Q-tip and a brush. Smile
