Decals that I can't find on velocals

So the last 3 communities I've asked this question in have pointed me to velocals, so this time I'm starting by saying they're not on there. I've got a 97 Diamondback Wildwood that needs new downtube decals but I haven't really been able to find anything. What do you vintage guys do when you just can't find replacement decals?

These bikes had stenciled painted graphics done as part of the paint process so you won't find any decals.

By not on there do you mean not shown on his site? I'm only asking because a couple of times I've needed decals that were not show on Velocal's site. But I emailed them and told them what I needed and they were able to provide them. Just thought I'd mention this in case you have tried actually asking them.

I've heard about a standard 8.5" x 11" blank decal sheet that can be used with a color laser printer in order to produce new decals. All you you have to do is get a picture of the graphics on the bike & print it out. They used to be sold at the Hobby Lobby or some such place. Good luck.

Ask your wife or girlfriend if any of their friends have a CriCut, and get them to match it as close as they can.
