I know Hobby Lobby used to carry clear decal paper. I bought some a few years ago when I made a model airplane. There is also white decal paper right next to it so pay attention. It was in the model paints section in my store.

Swing over to rodbuilding.org and do a search. There are a lot of guys printing decals.

Also, Decal Connection. Fast service, reasonable prices. Great option.
