    Smile finding decals to put on vintage machines

    hi all - I am on a quest to find decals, to replace (if possible) a worn one on my treadle (1904-7 era). This one has the gold Sphinx design.........also, wondering if you can put a decal on a machine that doesnt have one (my brown 301).......has anyone found a source for the old decals, or some decal that would be appropriate to use?

    You have hit on my most frustrating part of restoration. There are some on Ebay and they are good for the vintage models, but I can't find any for the really old (antique) 100+ models. I share your pain.

    ouch! it would be great to have the official decals, but for $80.00.....I don't know about that, my machine didn't cost that much.........wonder where he gets the decals from? makes it himself? How?

    he makes them himself, and has a printer that will do metallics. They look very nice- I have used two sets he made.
