    So, after thinking about this... here is what I am proposing. I printed an entire set of vinyl stencils for an ESB Fett and it took me almost 5 hours to pull the vinyl and attach it to the transfer paper. That's not economical. So, instead I want to send printed sheets to anyone who buys the vinyl and they (you) can pull the negative or positive image (topical or layered). I used the left chest plate as an example of what you would receive:
    esb-rafalfett-silver-jpgesb-left-chest-plate-numbers-jpgesb-left-chest-plate-silver-stencil-jpgesb-rafalfett-yellow-pngesb-left-chest-plate-yellow-numbers-jpgesb-left-chest-plate-yellow-stencil-jpg

    You would receive a paper copy of the first two images (for silver, yellow, gray, whatever) then a cut but UNPULLED sheet of vinyl (the third image for each color). You would have to pull the negative or positive, cut out the decals, then put the transfer paper (included) on yourself. The reason for this is obviously cost. As you can see, the left chest plate has 24 individual decals; multiply that by the amount of armor components? I do not recommend anyone purchase these unless they are familiar with vinyl decals. These aren't supposed to make the work easier, just more accurate.

    The pricing I am looking at is:

    Chest, Collar, Back, Cod, Butt Armor: ESB, ROTJ, Pre Pro (all variants): $70.00
    Knees & Shoulder Armor: ESB, ROTJ, Pre Pro (all variants): $60.00

    I am still working at perfecting the helmet files for vinyl printing. I am conflicted on selling these. As I said in my earlier post, they made a heck of difference in quality of the final product, but they are not without their own skillset requirements as far as application goes. These are not recommended for newbies at all... remember, if you apply them wrong or don't know what you're doing I'm not responsible. Let me know with a PM if you are interested.

    I will be (finally) starting paint work on my ROTJ helmet soon, and I'd be very interested in color separated stencils for the damage. Would these work for any helmet, or would you need to have variations based on the maker (mine's a FPH premium coldcast from animefan). Thanks!

    I'd be interested depending on price. I've had a helmet or two sitting here for a couple years that I need to paint and that might give me the push I need to start.

    ESB Layered.

    Interested as well, helmet sizing would be the only concern.
