where to find 'Crack N' Peel' for decals

Post by Pete » Fri, 23 Oct 1998 04:00:00



I read in a rocketry FAQ that Fasson's Crack N' Peel was usable for decals
on model rockets.  It is supposedly a laser printable clear adhesive
material.  I've checked online in Office Max and Office Depot, and have
visited the local American Speedy Printers, haven't found any yet.  Speedy
had similar material, but it was opaque.  Does anyone know of a good place
to purchase this?  Thanks,

Peter Stanley

Don't know about this specific product, but just the other day I
picked up a new inkjet product to try.  The stuff is sold by Paper
Plus (a nation-wide chain, their web page SHOULD be www.paperplus.com
but it didn't work when I just tried it, could just be a network
problem of some sort so you should try it yourself) and is called
"Visual Presentation Products Self-Adhesive Clear Inkjet film."  It's
expensive ($16 for 12 sheets) but it's the first product of its kind
that I've found that works in inkjets (and therefore for those of us
who can't afford a color laser printer), or that's the theory anyhow.
I'll post a report when I get around to trying the stuff.

For those of us lucky to have access to a color laser printer, what
clear stock have people been successful with?  I'm dying to try it
out! Has anyone come up with any generic decal designs to share?

I highly recommend the blank decal paper sold by Papa Tango here on RMR.
He also sells decal film overcoat that you brush on, but I haven't tried
it.  Spray on clear coat has worked fine for me.

Good price, fast service, great quality.

As for generic patterns, I used MS Powerpoint to do pages of roll patterns,
windows and hatches, etc.  Also another page of different thickness'
stripes.  Lines of dots in different sizes can also be used as rivet
patterns.  Do up some CP and CG markers, and some id 'plates' (name, NAR
number, phone, whatever) and you're good to go!
