Hey guys,

The new style decals have been selling very well. Perhaps due to the 'theme' or maybe you simply prefer the clear-back. We'd like to know which type of decal you prefer: Solid-back style which is more effective a covering an existing design, or a Clear-back style which allows the color of the ABS plastic to show through. Toss in your vote!

I vote for Water slide labels, while clear back and solid back are nice Laser Printer Water Slide labels give that LEGO feel to them.

I have to stick with clear. It provides more customazation options, because you can apply the decal to any color. Solid color does come in handy though. It covers up unwanted decals.

I'd say both, but voted clearback.

I'd say clear if there is a chance that a few faces could be put in any empty spaces on the sheet. No need to have those die cut really.

Yeah, some things work better in clear backed, but others work best solid color, personally I think you should keep the medieval ones solid backed.

I'd have to vote for both, if that's possible.
