Perhaps this or something else similar is out there.
Then I would buy double-sided carpet tape at the hardware store and adhere it to the back of the logos. Trim the logos carefully with sharp scissors and voila...you have adhesive backed chest stickers.
Any sticker stock you get from a printer isn't going to stick to the fabric of the leotard very well. It's not really made for sticking to fabric. But carpet tape is much more durable and really gets a good grip on it.
For a time there I was cutting my own ovals out of heavy posterboard, painting them with the same paint I used to paint the utility belt (so it would match) and cutting the bat out of black matte contact paper. Using a template I would attach the bat to the oval when the paint was well dry, and it gave the chest emblems a smooth, even, clean look. Ahhhh those were the days.

my ovals are a little hacky, they ok from a distance but.....you know.
I have tried scissors, and exato. I have cut it both with and without the tape applied to back already.
