I'm a Moderator over on Decaltalk.com

I've used several Decal Papers over the years and have found Papilio.com to have the best and freshest Decal Paper out there.

I began with using Bel and had to send several packs of their product back. I never even looked at the Testors stuff. The Testors Paper and their Decal CD is bottom of the barrel. For years people online complained of buying the Testors Paper in the store and finding it old and dry.

Here's a link to Papilio.com for their Decal Paper. Shipping is cheap.

Sometimes my order arrives within 24 hrs. from the time I hang the phone up.

In a word, NO. The entire testors decal making line is garbage. The paper has a tendency to roll up like a window blind as soon as the glue releases from the paper. Stay away from this product.

I've actually had decent success using the Testors/Decal Gear paper. Printing black seems to be the only major downfall I've experienced with it. On the other hand, I've had pretty much nothing but trouble with Bare Metal Foils decal paper, mainly that virtually nothing sticks to it, and it seems to be very UV sensative.

Supercal paper has also worked well for me. I can't speak for any other brand, a sthose are the only 3 I've tried.
