I don't know about companies per se but I have seen several inexpensive listings for them on eBay 

 

I was googling that first but couldn't find any, I'll have to keep an eye out. Good to know they do exist

As per Rauhughes, if you are in the US. I say US because i emailed them once to see if they shipped internationally and never got a response.

Those are the exact ones I got here in the UK. No idea where mind, but you can get them outside the US.

Do you mind sharing what you do?

Sure. Note this is for US, I've noticed supplies in the UK are noticably more expensive, though alternates may be available.

Supplies: 

Computer with graphics software

Inkjet printer (laser may be an option, just never tried it myself)

Testors Decal Paper

Testors Decal sealant

Optional:

Micro-sol decal solvent, micro-sol decal sealant

 

Process:

Make the design, size, and layout you want in your favorite graphics program. Test run on normal paper to ensure desired look.

Decide if you want clear or white paper. Simple dark designs (basic logos, warnings, black text, ect) work best on clear. Brightly colored designs or ones with lots of white, need white.

Print onto decal paper.

Let ink dry.

Spray on sealant. Use quick light coats, and let dry. A heavy coat may cause the design to bleed.

Cut out design. Obviously clear paper will be more forgiving here.

Apply like normal waterslide decals.

Use micro-sol to help it confirm to curved surfaces, and set to help it set up.

Finish model details and seal with clear coat as normal.

Ha!  I never would have thought of that!  Small stickers designed to stick to acrylics.  Genius!
