Brake caliper decals, where to buy?

I’ve looked on eBay, and can find every manufacture except for Porsche. They even have Brembo… Is there a specific way to search? Is there anywhere else I might find them?

Just had the same problem. Looks like Porsche may have put pressure on eBay to ditch some fakers. Anyhow, I got in touch with the seller below and he made me 6 decals for $6. Woohoo!

Did you use the stickers or the stencils? If used stickers, did you clearcoat over them?

I put down several layers of high heat paint, then the decal, then 2-3 coats of high heat clear coat. After 10+ years my calipers still look pretty good, minus some expected wear. If you cannot find the decals online, I'm sure most local vinyl printers could make them for you. Standard length is 3" some people like to use 3.5" or a mix of the two between the front and rear calipers.
