Where to get bike decals reproduced?

The original yellow and black decals of the frame of my 1998 GT Forte TI bike are looking pretty bad and I am wondering if it is possible to get new reproduction decals mad somewhere that would restore the looks of the frame back to it's original beauty?

The Forte lettering on each side of the upper frame tube is almost gone and the GT decals on the downtube is looking pretty rough on one side as well.

As soon as I can charge the battery on my camera I will post some photos to illustrate what the decals look like now.

Thanks for the quick reply and all of the information.
Some of the links no longer work but I sent E-mails off to the ones that did have valid functioning web sites.

Get really, really good pictures, and measurements first. Don't blow up the camera on high-res, though, because you'll need to email the pics.

Then, contact VeloCals, nicely, and be very patient. Be willing to pay and don't be a bother or a cheapskate, as their time is money, too.
It will take a while, but generally, the quality is pretty good.

The wait will allow you to do the frame right, patiently and thoroughly.

There are other options, of course. I just like doing business with JR.
