Highly recommended gang. Just lay out exactly what you want in MS Word, email it to the Great White North, and Stein's elves send back decals that work.

Shoot the color base and one light coat of clear, cure, wet sand lightly to slick out the surface, then apply the decals. Shoot three coats of clear, block sand wet (with a small hard rubber block) over the decals to level the clear with the surrounding surface. Shoot one more clear and you're done. The decals are buried in the surface. You can't see or feel the edges, and you can't damage them without chipping the clear.

PPG has a matte clear.

I fiddled around with a bunch of ideas and this beats anything I ever tried.

DanH - great advice on the process. I did my own water transfer slide labels but followed your instructions (which you posted elsewhere at some point). The decals are safely and cleanly burried under clear.

I received a few requests for my template file ...

Dan, don't worry about CRS. You will likely forget more about paint and finish that the rest of us will ever learn.
