Default Printing your own transfers

Just wondering if anyone has tried this before? I went onto ebay and found some transfer paper that you can use in a laser printer, spoke to our Toner guy at IJT from work, and he managed to swing me a free colour laser printer (he is frickin' awesome!) and well.. I was going to give it a go, my own custom transfers. Squad and company badges, even some images like eagle wings for my valk, jaws and stuff, I would try and do it free hand, but.. I'm rubbish at that! inspiring texts to put on the side of my tanks and chimeras and orkey glyphs. As far as I can see its kinda limitless what I could do!

Sooo wondering if anyone has tried this before, is this dream of mine as awesome as I'm making it out to be?

I have.
Did up a batch of custom "Empire" roundels (Star Wars Empire, that is) for my vehicles.

Recommend the laser printer decal paper. Beats the inkjet one hands down.

Takes a little practice to get the sizes right (so practice on regular paper first).

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
