Anyone ever printed their own Klein decals?

I'm looking for decals that match the bicycle pictured below: a 1987 Klein Quantum.



Obviously, they wouldn't have to be perfect. I'd draw them myself, but I'm nervous to draw them out when I don't have a great picture of them. I also don't know what size decals usually are, which probably isn't good for someone printing them off.

Has anyone here ever done their own Klein decals?

If there's a way to print my own decals I'd like to know about it. I'd like to make up some for my frankenbike.

It should be "easy" to grab the proper logo and mask it into your paint job.
If you're not repainting, then you might get stick on letters cut.

Examples of the four different logos here:

Yea, I went there to figure out which set of decals were right, since I wasn't sure just based on Google Images. I don't plan on repainting the bike, which was probably repainted in the past since the decals are missing, so I'm just looking for some decals that I can stick on the frame.

I'm pretty sure you can make your own decal in something like CAD or AI as long as you have the equipment to make the sticker, am I right?

Nice link

I'm not sure those early block font paint jobs were de-bossed. But I've seen some nice classic restorations from painters... not from any home software package.
