Decals for vintage cycles ~ a great service

I'm going to take an opportunity to promote a decal provider I've mentioned before here. I have no connection to Hugh and bicycledecals.net other than as an extremely satisfied customer. Hugh has extensive knowledge of vintage bikes and I found his service to be top shelf. In fact, he went above and beyond in helping me. His prices are reasonable and his product is very good quality. His communications were timely and considerate. His shipping was super fast. Plus, he is a very nice guy.

I can't recommend bicycledecals.net highly enough.

OK

Are their decals printed on a clear carrier? I am interested in some Pinarello decals but their example is not a sample of an actual decal, just the artwork. I want individually cut letters and theirs appear to be printed with clear edges showing.

oops. Yes, that's it. Thank you Maxturbo! Here I am promoting Hugh's site and I got it wrong. Sorry. At any rate, great stuff. He supplied me with a decal no one else was offering. And, though he said they don't advertise it, they will indeed sell one decal if someone asks. I bought two copies of head badge decal from him and they are very nice.

Ooo. That I can't answer for you vjp. Sorry. I've only purchased one example from them and it was a repro foil head badge. I'm sure Hugh could answer your question for you. Very accommodating fellow.

Looks like they have nice stuff, but nothing I need at the moment, though I'm tempted by the Coppi set.
