    Any office supply store will have white Avery-type labels that you can print on. Will that do?

    I use decal paper, both clear and white, from Bare Metal Foil called Exerts-Choice. About the only thing I use these for is
    printing number boards for locomotives. I use the laser paper and work up a sheet and take it to my local Staples who gladly
    uses their laser copier to print me off a sheet for a small fee. Here's a link to the mfg's page.

    bare-metal sells it for ink-jet or lazer, works well in home printers you seal the ink-jet after you print it, so the color done run.

    Micro-mark has it as well - and laser. If you print a decal in 'body color', reverse image, it's a pretty decent way to get white lettering.

    Print the area around the lettering the color of the body, and then the area that isn't printed is white.

    Here's a good example of that. I played around with various shades of red until I found one that matched Floquil Signal Red, printed a red block reversed around white letters:

    White decal paper is great for printing whole car sides of graffiti cars too, depending on your decal application skills.
