Have you guys ever heard of Erikstormtrooper?

I stumbled across this site and it looks like he's got some great images of sticker sheets and backgrounds from vintage vehicles and playsets!

That site is still around? I remember years ago downloading everything he had because I was afraid he would turn the site off. I guess he is still paying the electric bill.

Yeah he's been around since the old FFURG email listserver (holy moly) customizing days.  I've kept his rebel imperial logo sheet handy for eons.  It's useful for customizing.

I like the vintage R2 stickers. They come in different colors.

Can you actually order from them or just access images you need to print on your own?  Looks like their last update was in 2010...

They're free downloads.  I recommend taking them to an office store or whatnot for a better laser print quality then.

Do you guys know of a printable sticker paper that's higher quality that would work well?  Something that feels smooth or vinyl-ish and not like a cheap paper label?

I haven't found anything yet that doesn't look like an obvious reproduction.  I've actually had better luck finding stickers from spare parts and just gluing them onto my keeper vehicle or playset.  I was a little apprehensive about using glue on a vintage collectible, but its just adhesive with the authentic sticker, and comes out looking the best IMHO.
