I have replaced quite a few stickers with things I make myself. Usually a colour copy of the original works well (I have one of those Playpeople police hats with chequered bands, so I could remove the hatband, scan it and email you a PDF. file). Failing that, it's possible to recreate some designs in software, scale them down and print them- I did this quite successfully with the flags-of-all-nations for the houseboat 3540 recently. Glossy (or Matt if you prefer) self-adhesive photo paper (find it on Amazon!) is pretty good for most PM stickers.
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

That would be most helpful, I’d cover all costs.
