Default Make your own decals/stickers.

Im painting my new 1/10 slash 4x4 body and want to use my own graphics. I have some of our race team logos and want to put them on. Id rather use them like the paint masks and put them on the inside to protect them. I bought some xxxmain picture glue and was wondering if anyone has used any other kind of paper than the comic book/magazine paper. I want to buy my own thin paper like what the comics and mags use. Or is there some other kind of paper out there?

Many brands/types are wax free.

How detailed of a logo are you trying to produce? If it's something simple that a regular paint mask can help create, then I may be able to help you.

Try this site, it should have what you're looking for. Create what you want or scan it then size it. Reverse your image print it, cut it out then paint over the printed side with white paint. http://www.papilio.com/ I've used the clear sticker paper on the inside of a few bodies and it works good.
