    I’m in need of a set of STTNG backbox decals which seem to be unobtainium at the moment.

    I found a set from a Swedish company at Free-Play.SE. Has anyone used their decals? If so, how is the quality?

    I’ve made the mistake buying a low quality set from a shady overseas company before and I’m trying not to do it again.

    Have you checked with Pete at retro refurbs?
    Many times he has things that don't appear on his web site.

    I've ordered many times from free-play.se and Im very satisfied with what I got. I havent bought any cabinet decals though so cant speak about their quality but they should be good.

    I have a set of STTNG back box decals. They are very shiny, is that a normal finish? I have had them for many years.

    I am sorry to say I tried a set of STTNG backbox decals from Free-Play.SE and found them to be inferior quality garbage. They don't adhere well to the cabinet. I waited a week to put the carriage bolts back on and barely tightened them and every spot where a carriage bolt goes the decals are wrinkling and bubbling. I've done dozens and dozens of decal jobs but these decals simply put suck. I would not recommend them.
