Default Whatever happened to Decals?

lately, all the products i have been getting dont include any decals. It may not sound like a big problem, but usually, you want to represent what youre running, and the body doesnt always look as good without those decals, so my question is what is happening to them? Where can i find them? I know upgrade rc makes them, but it doesnt have all the companies, specifically, wheree can i get Hara Products decals? all the bigger names have em, but us small timers who actually buy their products dont get to show what they run?

I cant agree more. Except Proline I have a tackle box full of proline and protoform stickers.
In the old days decals were a hot item to stock now no one stocks them.
They can be ordered online though from most manufacturers.

Until the send a check with the decal, I'm not putting them on...

The big thing now is to have custom decals made..... to your colors...

I agree. In a way we are giving the free ads by placing the stickers on our cars, the least they could do is to give it to us for free!

Cost cutting maybe?

You can still send a self addressed envelop to most of the manufacturers and they will send you some stickers back for free but a lot require $1 or more these days.

Just thinking of the products I've bought lately and about half come with stickers.

LRP speedo, perhaps not on the LRP motor though
Twister tires, the fronts always have two stickers and the rears have some kind of tire protector sticker
RP tires, no stickers
Corally RDX PHI came with a complete set
Protoform bodies, headlights and random stickers
Orion lipo, I don't remember seeing them
Hudy setup station came with a small set (for $300, it was a small set of stickers)

You may be on to some thing? Maybe they don't get enough advertisement from them to justify the expense.
If its cheaper in the end oh well I guess, I can always buy some.

Heres where I get my stickers made.
He does some great work and for some big names.

yeah, the only problem is that you have to pay $30 for a decal? they should shell out a bit, and pay the extra $1 so we have something to put on our bods. The thing i would do is print em out o=n the computer and then use that special glue, and put them on the inside, but then what would i do if i change companies?
