The printing is done on white gloss paper, so there is no transparency. The stickers do not come pre-cut (and that fact is indicated by the seller as well).
Cutting the stickers is of course simplicity itself.
I used a metal ruler and a ceramic hobby cutting knife on a board. The stickers cut easily and did not tear. Grabbing the edge to peel the sticker backing off was easy and did not damage the sticker corners.Some of the stickers have printed edges that are deliberately larger than the area it is intended to be stuck on, so that allows you to trim a few extra millimetres off as required. Perfect train–best lego train ever made.
