Last time I ordered decal paper, I got it from Small Bear, but I am looking to snag something a little quicker, so preferably Amazon Prime eligible. I use a black and white laser printer for my decals.

Suggestions?

I've always used Papilio decal stock and been very happy with the quality & service. I only used inkjet waterslide stock, but I know they make laser printer stock, too. And I believe you can get it through Amazon, though I always just ordered it directly.

As it turns out, there's almost nothing on Amazon that is Prime eligible, just a lot of 3rd party sellers and unreliable looking products. So I guess it's back to SBE for my paper.

Why not go directly to Papilio then, Scott? First rate product quality and customer service, in my experience. And you're dealing directly with the manufacturer, not a reseller (though nothing against SBE).

Fair question. Two reasons. I like ordering one or two sheets at a time, and also I figure if I'm going to pay $6 for shipping some sheets of paper, I might as well get a few other pedal building parts at the same time. :mrgreen:

Clearly Scott, you are not building enough :mrgreen: (says the guy who hasn't built a pedal in a year) I used to order 50 at a time from Papilio.

I'm having great results with just glossy photo paper, glue stick, inkjet printer and some clear coat.

Labels by the sheet seems to be a good resource. Just ordered some water proof sheets. I'll let you know how they work out. The come recommended by madbean.

Any decent hobby shop is going to have some Testors blank decal stock if you need it fast and don't want to pay a lot for shipping.
