For printing decals, there are a few approaches I could think of. One challenge (and I don't know exactly how you'd overcome it) would be getting a white underlay under the colored ink. It's probably a simple enough matter to print on clear film, laminate that (to seal the ink) and lay the resulting sticker down. But if you don't have a solid base of white behind the ink, the color of the underlying plastic will influence the colors you've printed. You might be able to do it in two layers, but that sounds unwieldy.
It looks like the originals are pink ink on blue vinyl tho, right? You could use screenprinting. Just one screen and a bit of setup. But it would set you back probably over $100, at the cheapest.
You could also try using spraypaint and a stencil to "print" directly onto blue vinyl and create your sticker. You'd use a layer of low-tack (repositionable) vinyl (or similar) as a stencil overtop of your blue vinyl. In the stencil layer you would cut the letters out, then use transfer film to stick it down on the blue vinyl. Hit this with pink spraypaint, let it dry, peel the stencil layer up and cut the final shape (around the letters you've created) out of the blue vinyl. If it were me, this is the route I'd go.
