I was wondering if you can get sheets of blank transfer/decal paper that you can print onto?
Yes. Go and check out a hobby store where they sell scale models, and you can buy decal sheets that will fit your printer. If you just want black on clear decals, then use a standard laser printer. For color, its more tricky.
here's where you can order it online if your hobby shops don't stock it (mine don't)
You can get clear or white transfer stock, but read their descriptions for use, it's not QUITE as straightforward as you might think.
From what I understand the best printers for printing decals is the Alps Thermal ink printers. They should be capable of printing white as well.

Printing transfers can get you some quite good results, but it takes a bit of thought. For example, standard printers don't print white (since the paper is white) so if you want a white logo you'll have to outline it with another colour, apply it to a white surface and paint around it. It's still easier than freehanding though :p
Inkjet decals are a bit transparent too so most colours will benefit from a light, preferably white, background. I imagine laser decals are more opaque but I haven't seen any of those.
There are companies that print decals more professionally, generally using Alps printers. The most well-known are Griffon Games and Ginfritter's. It costs a bit though, but I've heard good things about them.
Yep - Alps printers will do white, as well as several different metallic colors. I've got a sheet of decals from a local store with an Alps for my Raven Guard that worked out beautifully.Originally Posted by slorak
