I just came across your post and would like to personally thank you for creating the amazing decals and posting them for free! They are extremely useful!

I just have one question with regards to printing them. I have a color laser printer in my office. Would I be able to print these decals if I bought the correct paper for laser printers or is there a specific printer I need to use? Also would you recommend I go to a professional printer and print the decals in vinyl? From my understanding laser printers can’t print vinyl because of the heat. Which decals would be easier to install on a helmet for a complete noob?

Also, do you suggest I just sand the black series helmet and then apply 2 coats of semi gloss white spray paint? Or should I after sanding, spray primer then the white spray?

Apologies for all these questions but I am a bit of a noob when it comes to custom painting but when I saw your post I immediately decided to redo my black series helmet!

Many thanks again!

They're designed for water transfer labels. There's a link to the right kind on the previous page. He mentioned buy the kind for ink jet or laser, so I assume they'll work with laser printers as well.

Correct, laser printers can't print on vinyl. You need a vinyl cutting machine for that. But the water transfer labels work quite well for this, so there's no need for vinyl.
