decal remover and new decals

Posted in Custom Workstation

I have some knockoff, and older real, transformers who I want to paint but have the old style decals on them. Does anyone have a good way of getting the things off? I'd rather not use goo be gone or anything like that if I don't have to. As to new decals should I go with pro made (reprodecal.com) or print them myself? I can get a good bit of model kit style decal paper but they're not as sturdy and prone to yellowing.
