How to order:
Ordering menus are at the bottom of this post, scroll down, select them from the drop down menus below, then select the quantity. If ordering ADV patches or ADV Flag, just add them from the drop down menus in post 2 and post 3 and they will be combined into one final total, this way shipping is also combined and you're not paying shipping twice. Personalized username and QR decals CANNOT be combined with ADV decals as they are custom made and mailed separately.
All ordering info for decals is in Post #1 and patches in post #2.
The rest of this thread is just inmate questions and feedback, so you only need to look at this post and the next one, if you're looking to order decals and patches.

Iron-on Decals, below the ADV decals
The ADV decals are available in 2 sizes: 6" x 4" and 3" x 2"
These are high quality Avery reflective sheeting decals. Each decal is laminated for longevity.
They may look fuzzy and gray in these scans, but they are white with black lettering and are very sharp. They are printed on high quality reflective stock and look at lot better in person than these scans.

6" x 4": (15 cm x 10 cm) highly reflective

3" x 2" (7.5 cm x 5 cm), amber, highly reflective, may be fitted to curved surfaces.

I've noticed inmates adhering the small ADV decal to their helmets. The previous reflective decal was intended for flat surfaces only; when applied to a helmet, it formed creases. I have now upgraded to a high end highly reflective 3M material that can be mounted on flat and curved surfaces, it is also laminated for longevity. Furthermore, you will notice small channels when you peel the decal from the backing paper; this is to facilitate the installation and allows you to reposition the decal if it was not positioned properly. Once you apply pressure - by rubbing on the full surface of the decal before removing the transfer tape - you activate the adhesive and it becomes more aggressive with time. Both small white and amber ADV decals are now on 3M and suitable for curved surfaces.
Application not recommended on the helmet's chin bar. It is suitable for lesser compound curves such as on the back of a helmet.. no creases or wrinkles..
On curved luggage:
CAUTION! ADV, white, amber $3.50

The amber one is the same reflective amber as the oval ADV decal.

How to affix these decals?
Clean the area thoroughly with a soft cloth and denatured alcohol. Remove the paper backing and apply slowly from the edge inwards, being careful not to trap air bubbles. Then use a credit card or a soft cloth to rub on the transparent masking of the decal to be sure it's well affixed. Now, slowly and gently remove the clear masking tape. There should be NO clear masking tape left on the decal.
