Re: Decal Tray was Decal backing color question

I have had success with the old idea of using a magic marker/Sharpie, etc., to color the back of the decal sheet for white lettering. This makes it easy to see the decal so you can cut it out without cutting into the lettering.
Sometimes a little of the color of the marking pen comes off with the decal so it's best to use the same color marker as the surface you are going to apply the decal to.
I have yet to see an answer (maybe missed it) as to why Champ and later decal makers insisted in using light colored decal paper. Is there a technical reason why dark colored decal paper won't work. Or did Champ once get a huge disouont on pink decal paper?
