Age old question I've probably asked a year or so ago. Can't remember the answers. For those of you that do up your own personal decals. Do you use inkjet or laser printers? More questions inside

What program do you use? I think I remember something about using Microsoft Word. Or was that more for printing custom license plates?
.
.
Images that you print, do you keep with simple black line pictures?
.
.
Have you tried pictures that have color? What pointers do you have about color decals?
.
.
Do you print on white decal paper or clear? I imagine it depends on the image and paint job you're applying the decal on.
.
.
What color paint do you tend to apply your custom decals on?
.
.
Is there a brand of decal paper you recommend? What brand do you avoid?
.
.
What are some newbie mistakes that you recommend avoiding?
.
.
One last question. I've heard you need to apply a clear coat of paint over the decal. Doesn't that make it impossible to put the decals on a body that has a slight curvature? Wouldn't the decal break or crack?

Thank you for your time in answering these questions.
