After promoting the quality of Decal Paper from Papilio.com for years on the Internet, they made me their Moderator over on DecalTalk.
I have a long history of creating and teaching Decals to Customizers in the DieCast community.
I started creating my own Decals around 1999 and went through 2 or 3 main brands of Clear and White InkJet Decal paper.
I would order a batrch of 10 - 50 sheets and some would be fresh and some would not.
The consistency of the carrier film on the sheets was 50% at best.
Then, I ordered some Decal Paper from Papilio.com, just up the road from Houston.
That was about 8 years ago and I've used them ever since.
Their paper is consistent, always fresh and arrives sometimes in less than 24 hours from ordering it.
Checkout allows you to choose real cheap shipping and the packets of paper come shipped in a box with packing.
All of my Promotional Customs rely heavily on the graphics I create for the Decals.
Decal Paper has to pass my criteria for a number of things,
First the Decal Paper must be relatively fresh.
Glossy Decal Paper must be Glossy, consistently Glossy for all the pages in the pack, and consistent gloss for the entire surface of each page.
Matte finish Decal paper must ve consistently Matte in the same way.
Good Decal Paper must be super thin but also resilient so it does not tear during application.
I use Clear InkJet Decal Paper for all my applications, even over dark colored paint jobs.
I can guarantee you'll like White InkJet Deal Paper from Papilio.com
That side stripe you show could also be done easily using a white painted background that Clear InkJet Decals fit right over.
As far as Decal Fixative there are a number of products you can use.
I use a thinned down mix of House Of Kolor Intercoat Clear to seal my Decal pages when they emerge from the Printer.
Any questions just ask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
