1. what brand of blank decal pages would you recommend to print these images to?

2. would it work with a color laserjet printer, or should it be strictly an ink jet style printer?
laser is best - usually don't have to seal them (inkjet inks will bleed as soon as water hits them)

I get my paper from:
http://www.beldecal.com
best to have them stored in a sealed container with some silica gel desiccants (to take up moisture) inside

Just as an aisde Micromark carries a Laserjet and an inkjet paper in both clear and white. I use the cl ear inkjet for my decals and registries. Just makes sure I use the Krylon Acrylic clear spray to seal them, and no problems...

Perchance does anyone have a decal placement guide for the Enterprise B?

Query....when I open the scan in painshop pro looks like everything prints out just fine but when I open the scan in Adobe Illustrator to add the registries the size is huge....I can adjust somewhat by changing the dpi and using the scaling tools in AI, Is there any easier way to scale it rather than trial and error printing? I'm burning a lotta ink and paper that way

Isn't there a grid measuring tool in illustrator you can toggle? I haven't used the program in a decade, but it was there there in the old version.

Not sure if anyone need these or not, but a good scan to start with.

Anyone got a sheet of shuttle decals scanned?
I bought a GREAT set off Shapeways but it has no decals.

I'm looking for the Aeroshuttle, Data's shuttle from Insurrection, the Delta Flyer and the...ER...the shuttle thingie under the Equinox's primary hull.

I can probably spend an hour or two sourcing these, but if anyone already has them made, I'd be grateful.

Any other shuttle decals would be great too- I have many shuttles in need...
