Vintage bike decals

Hi, had a problem with some bike decals not adhering to my frame ( bead blasted back to steel, then two light coats of lacquer before trying the stickers). I like the look of the stickers but want to try a different supplier. I can see 'bicycledecals.net' and 'h Lloyd cycles' online. Anybody used these, or any other recommendations?

    I can recommend H.Lloyd - but a lot of vintage decals will be of the 'waterslide' type (think of the decals you get in airfix kits), which are designed to go under a top coat..

    I’ve always applied decals then had them lacquered over.

    Any reason why you aren’t doing this?
