    Not sure if this should be in General Discussion or Toy Discussion, but this seems right, anyway. So I bought a set of Autobot faction symbols maaaaany moons ago and just recently purchased a set of Autobot and Decepticon symbols. Well the first set I bought, they weren't very durable. The symbols could easily be scratched off and would eventually fade with time, but the new set I bought is VERY durable, just as good quality if not better than original stickers that came with Transformers (referring to the likes of stickers that came with Takara Reissue Megatron and 2002 New Year Optimus Prime and the like). Either way, this is awesome and I love it, but has anyone else noticed this?

    Are the decals still a little pixel-y, or have they fixed that? I haven't ordered from them in forever.

    They bought a completely new setup for making their decals a few years ago and it dramatically improved pretty much every aspect of the production, IMO.

    Nice, they will definitely see more business from me in the future.

    The set I just bought isn't pixely at all. They look great, go gitcha some.

    I think the quality has DECREASED actually. Newer sets have a thicker, almost sandpaper grit quality to them. While the colors are nice, I can't get over that sandpaper feel. They switched paper types if I recall correctly.

    I still buy them obviously, but I liked them better before.

    Love me some Repo's! I do kinda worry because I bought a LOT of the G1/Alt/Classics stickers back from their old stock, I'm hoping they don't have any issues over time compared to what the new stock is like. The new stuff is great though--I liked the more textured feel to it.

    What kind of equipment do they use to print the labels? (I work for a big printing company).

    I've just Reprolabled my WST Dinobots and I love them! I didn't notice any sand-paper feel to them at all! The stickers are much better than the hair-thin stuff that came with the Dinobots originally. I couldn't stand those stickers, they were so fragile, and the cut-out lines were way off the printed areas.
    But Reprolabels is awesome! I've bought a lot from them this past year and will keep on buying from them.
