Stoppel Decals

Recommended Posts

So this is a question and, for older members, a walk down memory lane.

I recently needed some Czech markings and some codes. The only ones that fit the bill were from old Stoppel sheets. I have always loved these decals. The colours are brilliant and very opaque and dense. But the best part is - there is no visible decal film! Each image is just the image, whether insignia or letter or number. 

The company that printed them was Permeta in Denmark. Now, I know they are a bit thick, but I will trade that any day for dense colour and no #$&%§ film with which to cope. ( This was particularly useful on this natural metal finish. ) But why, does anyone know, did they stop making them? Also, why has no other decal printer copied the process, whatever it was, to make such unique and, I think, really good decals? Is the secret lost like how they made stained glass windows in the Middle Ages?

I should add that I bought these sheets 50 or more years ago! They worked fine! 

Anybody remember these? Thanks.

Nick

I remember these very well. They were beautifully printed, but rather thick. I think they may have been silkscreened.

Stoppel is still in business: http://www.stoppel-decals.dk/

Mike, Do I feel stupid! I googled Stoppel before I posted, but the website did not come up. I used the link you provided and voila: another place to buy stuff! Thanks a lot!🤑🤗

I have never seen any of their products from other dealers.

I wonder if the decals are made in the same way? I am going to order some. 

Regards, Nick

Interesting subjects, but they seem limited to Danish subjects for aircraft. Perhaps that's why they've never really been "pushed" by other suppliers?

Yes, that makes sense. The website does not list any of the old sheets with a broad range of national insignia and letters and numbers. I ordered a few sheets. I will report when I get them. Nick
