Default I would love a decal sheet

Since we have been on the subject of Ogre Minis 4 I wanted to propose a stretch goal - A decal sheet

It is a big ask since it means sourcing out a manufacturer for a completely different product you haven't done before.

There is a decal pdf already of course, but I have investigated options for printing it before and I didn't find anything cost effective. I suspect it would be more economical to print a few hundred sheets and offer it as an add on.

The colour pdf has some great options of course but I also think it would be great to have a black and white sheet of just the Combine and Paneuro insignia in 2 sizes for ogre and armour units.

I would pay $10 for a sheet of those.

Me too! Don't know how cost effective it would be for SJG to put this in as an add-on, but I'd certainly pledge $10 more for decals. I'd pledge even more if they could do multiple sheets.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I plan to put aside a MINIMUM of $400 (not including shipping) this Summer to participate in OGRE Minis 4. I suspect that quite a lot of us are eagerly awaiting this project. So, yeah. Physical decal sheet(s) as an add-on is something I would really like to see.

Are the laser printer decal sheets (like https://www.amazon.com/Sheets-Laser-.../dp/B01GVO92U2 ) good enough?

If so, maybe make a PDF of NAC and PAN regalia stretch goal.

The general problem isn't the availability of decal paper, it's the inability to print white or other very light colors using home printers.

While many of these won't be usable for Ogre, some might be:

Historical Board Gaming offers a pretty wide selection of decals in a number of Ogre useful scales, for a variety of nations.

Didnít SJG already release a PDF of Ogre symbols for decal printing?

yes, but I believe the request is specifically "so I don't have to try to print them myself"

Yes that's right, and as Mack JB pointed out, a consumer grade printer will not print white ink.
