My last order from Champ arrived today, promptly, and with minimal shipping costs (no "handling" fees, or 1/4 oz. items shipped in large Priority Mail boxes).
I just checked the Champ Decals web site, and today they closed their doors for good, apparently with a fair inventory still in hand I have some decals, or at least their envelopes from the days 50+ years ago when they were in Cleveland, and then San Jose (Max Gray). I regret seeing a company that has served us so well and so long, just disappear. For those dwindling number of us who continue to paint and detail steam locomotives, it is especially sad inasmuch as no one has yet stepped in to fill this very narrow, but essential modeling market.
