Restoring factory gauges

I have a 73 Monte Carlo and I like to get the facory gauges redone. I saw a video on youtube gauge marks where they did one for a Firebird and Camaro. Yhey basically used transfer sheets to transfer the markings. What I want to know is has anyone done this and how do you get the image of the markings and where do get the right transfer paper? I e-mailed the guy the company Friday, so I'm waiting on a response from them. But if anyone else knows, I would appreciate the help.

Outfit called Whiteface Gauges on Ebay sells vinyl replacement placards for a lot of applications. I have used a few and so far they have worked very well. The numbers and marking are not a 100% match as far as the sharpness is concerned but overall it looks very nice. A full set for all the gauges runs about 30 bucks or so. All the overlays can be installed without removing the needles.
