    Joe,
    I'm afraid in Z scale decals are mostly DIY. Sometimes you can repurpose decals from larger scales (an n scale door decal may work on the side of a z loco). You can make them yourself on an ink jet printer with purchased decal film. There are also some people that will do custom decals. The ones that are able and willing to work in Z generally advertise in Ztrack magazine. One that I have dealt with is Shawmut Car Shops.
    Finally, there are customizers, who frequently post here, who will do the whole job for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Mark

    I always used N scale decals. Some are smaller sized. You may want to look at Dry Transfers as well. You may have to learn how to paint if you want to change full colors on a loco. Subscribe to Ztrack Magazine there may be Z decals listed there.

    JoeTodd you could try here and see if they could do a custom order. They are usually very helpful and will work with you.
