    This is for those of us who will just print out scans of stickers as an alternative to buying actual stickers. Sometimes it's just easier that way. The purpose of this thread is to share the scans we've made or found with each other.


    I have a scan of the Diaclone Jazz's sticker sheet. I could use a scan of the Mirage repro sticker sheet with the stickers to replace his side endorsements. And Ultra Magnus' stickers.

    Sticker scan is useless unless you also provide the DPI of the image.

    But I like where this thread is going. Printing the images is a different thing though. I tried finding some printable sticker sheets, and failed miserably. I'm not sure what Reprolabels uses, but that'd be nice if I could find something similar.

    Why is it useless without the DPI?

    Pixels of the image / DPI = physical inches of the printout.

    You want the printout to align with the toy don't you?

    Have you tried printable waterslide decal sheets? Alot of hobby stores have them and I personally prefer them over stickers.

    The image is an exact-size scan.

    The idea is good, sometimes I just need one or two stickers for something and don't feel the need to spend money on a whole new set.

    What would you print these on, though? Label sheets, maybe laminate them afterward? What would be a good glue to use if the labels don't stick?

    Also, how are you going to make sure people scan and submit at the right DPI? I suppose you could adjust it yourself if they didn't fit, though.

    Well, I just printed on regular paper and glued them on with cyanoaccrylate glue. Does anybody have those Mirage decals?

    And that looks - good? I can't imagine it does.

    Using super glue to affix paper stickers is extreme overkill and is horrible for the figure. You'll never get them (or the glue) off again.

    It worked alright, actually. But white glue would probably be better. I used regular paper because it's all I've got. Several of my Autobots needed faction symbols, so I took one from an instructions scan, removed the background, copied it a bunch of times, and then printed the image.

    So, does anybody have Mirage's Citanes endorsements?
