Default Waterslide transfer question

I have started painting my paneuro army and need some transfers to add insignia to the tanks. I am looking for fleur-de-lis small enough to put on the tanks. I figure I will need to print them on blank transfer sheets, but if anyone knows where I can get pre-printed. Great.
Any help will be appreciated.

Sorry don't know where you can find pre-printed but I did find paper that you can print on than spray with clear acrylic paint, they suggested high gloss I went with satin and it still look way too glossy and stood out from the Ogre I put it on. I'm hoping that when I spay the Army Painter anti shine on it it will blend in. So after all that just be carful not to use high gloss.

Had lots of problems like that years ago. Wish I had a good answer for how to fix that. Will most likely have it myself when I get that far this time.

A Google search for "water slide decals fleur de lis" lists many. Some on Etsy sized for fingernails. That many work, but look around.

I tried Fighting Piranha Graphics, but I didn't see any there.

A good way to make water slides blend in is first do a gloss coat to get a perfectly smooth surface, apply the decal, then dull coat the entire mini. The decal will blend right in.

BTW, there is a PDF of minis decals somewhere on the Ogre pages.
I haven't tried them yet, but it's very comprehensive sheet.

I have a reasonable one in SVG format that I created for dice designs. PM me your e-mail address and I'll send it over.

As already noted, unfortunately that sheet does not have the specific graphic for which he's looking.
