My Rollergames has some worn insert art (probably from when someone lifted the mylar off). I have printed (using a laser printer) replacement insert art on some water slide decals and they apply nicely, but to no surprise don't stay in place for very long. Is there something I can apply to them (underneath) and/or on top of them to get them to safely stay in place on the playfield? I don't want to clear coat the whole playfield, and while it plays great, the pin is definitely a players condition so it doesn't have to be perfect, although still want it to look decent. If water slide decals are the wrong approach here, what should I use?
I can print using an ink jet or color laser printer. Thanks in advance for the great advice I always receive from my fellow Pinsiders.

I put a piece of Mylar down over the decal and laser jet is a million times better imo. I use non-cling if there is a way to secure the edges under a ball guide, etc.

Good luck.

I had this same problem. I used a PF protector. They weigh enough to keep the decal pinned down and protect it from damage, no clear coating required

I'm not asking this to be an a$$, I'm asking because maybe I've been saying wrong. Isn't it water slide decals?

Good catch!!! Yes, water slide decals. That actually makes more sense. Just corrected the wording in this post/post string.
