Hey all, I am looking for a website that would sell authentic stickers of the warning lables that were on the planes. Does anyone know of any?

Any help would be much appreciated.

I think they where stenciled on rather than stickers.

Yup. They used paint. What I've done is find a really good stencil font online then printed them out on special paper. You can find one-sided peel off sticky paper at Office Depot or just about anywhere that sells printer supplies.

Not sure what nationality you're looking for but for U.S. planes I use this font:

Also, this place has tons of stencil fonts including some German ones.

Or, you could just buy them premade from this guy...

Yeah, I figured they were painted on back then. I just need some that are stickers though. Thanks for your suggestions, I think either of of those options would work for me.

You could make stenciles the old fashon way, cut out the letters from carboard land use a spray-can. I have done it a few times, and it looks really cool.
