But wouldn't it be a violation of copyright law for a decal maker to copy other's work with the intent of selling it?

If you can find out who owns the copyright, they might be willing to grant you permission to make a reasonable number for personal use.

    Copyright law explicitly permits copies for personal use, as when you Xerox a magazine article or book page. It's called "fair use."
