I've had some success making my own decals using ink jet decal paper I found on ebay. Just followed the directions and it was relatively easy. You can see what they look like on my tractor.

nice decals. Not to knock them, but have you washed the tractor to see if the ink will run out. Been though that already, so now i just have the sign shop make them for me. Also there are a lot of guy making good stuff on ebay. Just go to David Bradley tractors and look at all the ones on there. Im sure there are looking for more demand on other types.

I created some similar decals for my SS16 (if I ever get to painting it). I laminated them hoping this would stop the ink from running. Crossing my fingers.

No the ink won't run when wet. In fact, I used "water-slide" decal paper to transfer the decal to the tractor. You have to spray the printed decal with Crystal Clear Krylon and let it dry before you transfer to the tractor. That keeps the ink from running. After it is transferred to the tractor and dried, you can spray another coat of Krylon to protect it even more. My main concern is how well will the colors hold up to sunlight before fading. My tractor is usually under cover when not in use so I don't expect much of a problem.
